The move yesterday went fine and now Cas is snugged away in my new home base at Boyd RV, twenty miles closer to Amazon. And just in time too. It started raining this morning and it’s predicted we’ll get 3 to 6 inches by late Saturday night. So no fun outings for me this “weekend” (my days off are Wed-Fri as long as overtime isn’t called), I’ll be enjoying the rest of my time off at home.
As for the park itself, it’s small and was accurately described by one of my neighbors as a rock quarry. It’s all gravel, but given the forecast that doesn’t seem so bad right now. It does have trees and is in a nice enough neighborhood. Behind those trees lie train tracks, you can definitely hear the trains going by at night and that does bother some people, but I don’t mind.
The town of Boyd is tiny but cute. It has a small grocery store and a few restaurants. When I arrived yesterday I went out with two coworkers to a hamburger/Thai joint (what a combo, huh?) in the little downtown strip. The food was decent and prices reasonable, there’s also a donut shop and a gumbo place in the same area that I’d like to try out.
Hopefully next weekend the weather will be better and I’ll be able to visit some of the attractions in the area.
