Sunday Evening Post-Thanksgiving Hangover Edition: Week Ahead!

(This is incredibly Funny and Timely Post from someone out there on the Blogosphere.)


Sunday Evening Post-Thanksgiving Hangover Edition: Week Ahead Glimpse
Addendum PERSONAL STORY:

So, every year we have 4-6 families who do a camping weekend near Thanksgiving time...we celebrate the holiday as friends. We normally camp at some "bare bones" cabins in Lake Bastrop, but that area was burned to a crisp in the wildfires. So, one of the ladies spotted this location on the internet: Hill Country RV Resort and Cottages.

Now, as long as I have a BBQ near me and some trees and some fresh air, I'm normally OK with wherever we might land. I didn't investigate this place or even look it up. I just assumed that it was vetted in some way.

Long story short, my family is the first to arrive at this little "campground." We're on the I-35 and my wife says: "Ok, get off here and turn left at Rueckle Road."
Me: "And then where do I go?"
Wife: "It should be right here."
Me: "Wait a minute. It's right off this major interstate?"
Wife: "Yeah, I was a little worried about that too when I realized we're so close to the highway."
Me: "Yeah."

We quickly see some cyclone fencing which encloses this "RV Resort" and the accompanying playground for kids. It borders this major road and interstate.

When I pull into this place all I see is a serious of widely paved concrete roads that head off into the distance where "mobile homes" can be observed.

It's Thanksgiving Day and we're supposed to be here for the next three days.

Nervousness sets it....


The office is closed. Our "packet" is in a drop box. I pick it up and read that our "cabin" number is 62.

I start down this road where the cabins begin with #1

After the first four relatively new cabins I become shocked.

We start seeing a series of single-wide mobile homes that have become residences. The windows are covered in foil and cardboard. If you happen to be staying at #15, it's really easy to spot...as it has the numbers 1 and 5 spray-painted in RED on the side. We observe at least 20 dilapidated mobile homes on cinderblocks that can best be described as "crack houses" or insipient "meth labs."
