Polk County Fairgrounds
This is where we are hanging out now for a few days, the Polk County Fairgrounds in Rickreall. We discovered this camping opportunity last fall, it is very quite and at fifteen dollars a night it’s a real bargain. Besides the normal assortment of county fair buildings, there is also a picnic day use area with walking trails along Rickreall Creek. A museum is also located on the grounds, and next-door is a restaurant, neither of which we have taken advantage of yet. The pick-up in the picture belongs to Jeanette’s brother, Bill who is out of town for a few days and loaned it to us to enable us to do some running around for appointments and getting together with friends. There is a big event planned here at the fairgrounds this weekend, Bus’n USA is having a big rally and will need all the sites, so tomorrow we will be moving to daughter Lisa’s drive way in Dallas for a night before moving on to the coast for a couple nights for the Summer Scott Reunion.
