Most of our Heartland friends had arrived by Thursday afternoon including Chapter Leader Larry Keever and his wife Donna. We had a Meet and Greet in the huge rally hall. This is a great venue for a rally, with long sites that are well maintained and very level. There is just enough of an slope to the sites to drain water away which makes it nice. We have been very impressed with this park.
This area was originally settled by the Choctaw Indians after they left their ancestral home in Mississippi and Alabama, when they made their way on the Choctaw Trail of Tears. The town was founded by Pierre Durant and his family and named after his son Dixon Durant. Dixon had established the first general merchandise store adjacent to the rail siding of the Missouri-Kansas-Texas rail line.
We have a problem that I discovered late this afternoon. I found a small water drip coming out of the underbelly and then found that the underbelly cover of chloroplast material is swollen with an accumulation of water. I poked a few holes in the cover to drain the water out and we will work on it more tomorrow. Please stay tuned...
