You are scaring the parents

We are almost ready to head out into the woods after a great day and evening camping in the Troutville park. The train only woke us twice. But I didn’t mind. I love trains. 

The sun is out. New outfits are dry and feel so comfy. Might even need sunscreen. This place has been awesome. A big thank you to this town for their open hospitality. They even provided free laundry and showers at the fire station. 

The only silly thing though is I was asked to move my tent. I strategically placed it closer to the bathroom so the midnight urge would be a short walk. But apparently parents get a little nervous if tents are set up too close to the playground. Scary me. But this is an awesome place. 

Happy Hiking
