The owner at the Turah RV Park last night was very kind and let me hang up my hammock in their recently painted gazebo.
Thank you so much!
It was nice to be out of the rain.
When I arrived in Drummond today I was greeted with a $25 charge to hang my hammock in the City Campground “RV” spot with available power.
The power was off in the shelter area.
The water was off in the entire park, and the pit toilets probably hadn’t been cleaned all summer.
I guess they need the money, but NOT the business!
On a brighter note, Parker’s Family Restaurant in Drummond is top notch!
Over 133 different burgers — including a 2-pound Challenge Burger! — great shakes and very reasonable prices.
Parker’s Challenge Burger is even BIGGER than the 20oz. Sasquatch Burger offered at the Blackberry Cafe in Joyce, Washington.
They even invited me to stop by before 8AM for breakfast even though they were officially closed until 11AM.
The reason I had to be there to order before 8AM was because the chef teaches a Culinary Class at the local high school and needs to leave early to get to class.
Great job Parkers!
On a side note — you might say, “Food for Thought” — I was informed that at the recent “Testicle Festival” Parker’s created the “Punishment Prize” for one of the events.
The prize was a 3-pound burger topped with ______.
If you care to guess what the “topping” was, keep in mind that this is cattle country.
Another hint lies in the name of this crafty punishing creation: it was called the “Your Nuts!” burger.
After gobbling down a double Big Kahuna burger, I grabbed a 2 pound coffee shake to go and watched a bit of youth football practice across from my campsite.
Listening to the coach yelling and whistles blowing sure brought back some memories…
