We left Pipestem (Holy moly, I’ve been calling it ‘Pipestream’ all this time!) Reservoir and drove the few miles back into Jamestown to pick up some things at Walmart. Then at ten we returned to the AAUW Bookstore. I read two of the books I had bought there a week ago and wanted to give them back. I don’t like hauling around already-read books. I had a nice visit with two different ladies there this time then walked out with two new books. I can’t help myself.
Our next stop would the town of Carrington (pop. 2080) forty-some miles due north. Their city park had camping. Oh what a lovely campground. All the electrical posts were covered off. “Do not use”?
You had no shade, no fire ring, no barbecue grill. For the price you should have all of that plus a sewer connection but at least you got train honking. This is the most high-priced city park camp I have ever come across in all my travels. You got nothing worthwhile but a water faucet and dirt to park on for $35.
