WAGON WHEEL SAMS NEWSLETTER
Chadron State Park
July 19th – 22nd
This would be a great campout. We had a lot of fellowship and the weather was a little warm during the day but cooled off in the evenings, great sleeping weather.
I drove up to the Gregory’s on the 18th so that I would be ready to join in the caravan on Thursday. There were 5 (Dennis & Sharon Gregory, Wanda Binegar & Chase (Gregory’s great grandson), Gary Larson, Curt & Connie Ernst who would join our chapter and Bart & Doris Bartow). We all met at the COOP parking lot and headed out at 9:00am with Dennis in the lead. We arrived at the park in 2 hours. It was great to be in a caravan and traveling together. Donita and Roger Weis were camp hosts and had camp sites ready for us, so we were able to set up and then go register. After lunch we (Sharon, Doris, Curt, Myself and Dennis) piled in the Gregory’s pickup and drove to the office to register. Drove back to our units to rest so we can go to Chadron for supper and music at the Bands of Bandaro on the street. After a couple hours we decided to call it a night. Before we left Chadron we had to stop at the ice cream shop. It was very good.
The fishermen had luck too. The first day it was too warm and the fish weren’t biting but the second day they went out early and some came back very happy.
This was a great campout and we missed all our camping family that could not be there.
