We arrived at the Pair-a-Dice Co-op SKP Park last Thursday and paid to stay a week. We pulled a long day Thursday and we were sorely tired. So since then we’ve laid low and have done a lot of resting, walking and enjoying the great weather. It’s been in the high 60’s, clear blue skies and very sunny….wonderful.
We haven’t been to this Escapees RV Club co-op park before and we are very favorably impressed. Everything is so neat and clean. Every day we see someone walking around with a bucket and long-armed pinchers picking up any stray items on the roads or common areas. We even saw a lady dutifully picking up pine cones one after another under a pine tree….she was going to be there for a while. They even have a water truck that waters down the roads to keep the dust down. That is a nice touch.
Roadway and sheds
What we were most impressed with how friendly everybody has been. Neighbors came over and introduced themselves and chatted. Walkers smile and wave as they pass when we are outside. Ladies in the laundromat were friendly and offered much advise on places to eat on what days for the best deal, where the post office was located and a good consignment shop. We chatted about places we’ve been and how long we’ve been on the road. One lady had an Escapee number in the 5,000. On lady went on the road in 1985.
Monday night ten of us went to dinner at Terribles Lakeside for pot roast buffet. It was pretty good. At Terribles Casino you can swipe your casino card daily for added perks. Sunday I got a 2 for 1 New York Strip dinner voucher. Last night Jim got a 2 for 1 hamburger voucher that had to be used within 48 hours. So today we went to Terribles Lakeside and had the hamburger…it was the largest burger I’ve ever seen…a half pounder…and it was the BEST hamburger I’ve ever had…came with nice grill marks, juicy and delicious, and it only cost $5.99 for the both of us! Tomorrow we’ll go to the Terribles in town and have our 2 for 1 steak dinner.
A lot of the folks here say they go out and order one burger, steak or slab of ribs and share the one meal. The steak and ribs cost $9.99. So when you share a meal, you can eat very cheap here. I could see eating out a lot and not cooking. It is cheaper than guying groceries!
Remember, you are loved.
