The campground was nice and I stayed here for two nights. The rate for full hook up was $20 per night. There were what I thought were flowers blooming in several trees around the campground. However upon investigation they were parachutes of rockets that the space camp had set off and some landed in the trees. I picked up a couple of spent rockets and brought them back to Indiana with me, I am not sure what I will do with these but the guys at the Town Barn enjoyed the story.
When I left Huntsville I had planed on staying in Nashville or Louisville for a couple of days but I was anxious to get home so I just drove straight through and arrived home on Saturday after driving the 600 miles. I was tired and shaking but I recovered.
