What a crap night of sleep. Trucks, cars, security and everything you can imagine made noise. The electrical box outside hummed all night and was only broken up by the dogs barking across the street. We had spent hours the night prior looking for place to call home for a few days. It was way too tough to find something in the night. Coffee. I need coffee. The re-search for rest began as I scrolled through the list on google maps in order to find our new home. A few phone calls lead us to Lindy's Landing. A campground on the banks of the King river. At $25 a night for full hook-ups this place is a steal. Keep in mind though... most deals like this come with drawbacks.
This place is a party campground. Crap RV's litter the lot with useless stuff packed underneath them. The kids are running around screaming and dogs are tied to chains underneath RV's.
Look past those things and this place is still dirt cheap. We get in and settled by 1100. That's real early which means we have the rest of the day to kick back and chill out. Shirley gets fired up and it's time to head into Fresno CA. My home-girl Gloria is from this town and that's really the only reason I've got to go see it. Besides, Roo needs some parts for the busted air horn and I've had my eye on a chromebook for writing this here blog.
Fresno appears to be a busy city. Cracking just over a half million people this metropolis has everything the people need. The truck center doesn't have the part in stock for the horn, but the rest of the day proves to be fruitful.
I've been putting the blog together on an HP laptop that has windows 10. I hate it. Absolutely hate using that software. I decided to drop $200 on a Samsung Chromebook which proves to be just what I wanted. Simple, easy to use, and easy to carry. We'll spend the rest of the day just catching up on cleaning and chores.
