RV Weekend Ozark Outdoors Oct 28-30 2016

We had planned to meet another couple, a friend of Vicky's who works at the hospital and her husband, this weekend for a Halloween RV weekend at Ozark Outdoors,  This is an RV river resort that is very popular during the summer but is pretty low key in the off season. We choose a site here as right down the road is Onondaga Cave state park and they were full because of their annual Halloween weekend where everyone decorates their RV's and sites and the kids to trick or treating to every site.  So at the last minute  Vicky's friends cancelled thinking the weather might be too cold, however it turned out to be in the 80's all weekend. A perfect weekend for being out.

We got away in the early afternoon after Vicky got off work. We knew we were going to be by ourselves but we had booked in at the "Buddy" sites. These are sites that are reversed so they face each other so you can share the same fire pit.

 Great Friday night sunset

we had plenty of wood for a fire each night
 Colors on some of the trees were still good

but most were just past prime color
 more colors around the site

The clouds both during the day and at night were very pretty
 Visited by a strange new fi

discovered a new beer this weekend. A Creme Ale from Piney River
Crankbait Cream Ale
 more sunset clouds

The "big picture" RV, cooking the steaks on the grille, Vicky relaxing and a good fire.

Perfect morning. We walked the 6 mile round trip down to Onondaga State Park and looked at all the RV sites decorated for Halloween.

Wide view of our complete campsite

A lovely weekend to be outside

RV weekend at Blue Springs Resort Sept 30- Oct 2 2016

Just a quick quiet get away for two nights in the RV. I have fished for trout before in Blue Springs Creek but I have never stayed in the resort. it is just about an hour south of our house in Bourbon Missouri.

It looked like rain all weekend but never rained. It stayed about 75 the whole time.
Despite it being perfect to get outside there was virtually no one in the campground, however there are sold out in a couple of weeks for the Halloween Fesitval here "Boo Springs Weekend"
We actually signed up for two spots for next years events so we can bring the grandkids! 

There were goats... when they got excited they fainted.... 

And horses for Vicky to pet. 

 We took a walk down to the Meramec River. Blues Springs is a hot spot for floating the river during the summer 
 We walked along the fields

We walked up the hill to where the zip line starts. We will have to come back when it is open so Vicky can zip line. 

We continued on for about 2 miles to the Rock Castle Cabin.

Actually just a new rental cabin that sleeps 18! but it is on the site of any old castle and what is left of the stone walls with a nice view out over the hills 

 All lite up at night

and a nice fire. It was a relaxing 2 days of nothing in between some busy work travel and many home duties for us both.
