Toad Suck is awesome.
I like it in every way, except maybe for the shower quality. But my site is beautiful, the view is amazing, the sunrises have been lovely, the walking is pleasant, the weather has been perfect… I like it so much that I’ve been struggling today to decide whether to stay longer or to move on. Struggling for an excessively long time, in fact! I’m actually quite annoyed with myself for how much time I’ve wasted trying to make this decision.
My routine — to the extent that I can be said to have one — has been to move every four or five days. Because I seldom get a site with sewer hookups, that’s about the perfect length of time to let me freely use water while I’m at a site, mostly for washing dishes, and then dump the tanks when I move. It’s also generally a pretty good time to hit up a grocery store. I can certainly last longer than four days on risottos and quinoa bowls, but I usually feel like I need something from a store about then.
But when I’ve found a really nice place, I’m often torn between moving on and staying. In favor of moving: maybe the next place will be even better. Against moving: why not appreciate what I have for a while longer?
This morning, I sighed and thought, “Well, a rolling stone gathers no moss.”
And then I thought, “But is that good or bad? Do I want moss or don’t I?”
I don’t know the answer, but I was pretty amused to discover that no one else does either.
It hasn’t helped me make a decision. But Eureka Springs is only about three hours away…

Leaving a good spot in favor of the unknown would definitely be hard for me. I don’t envy you the decision.

Decisions are such pesky things!
I went grocery shopping today and it took me FOREVER! I was in an aisle, trying to decide which brand of product to purchase when I realized that a woman was trying to get by me. I told her that the older I get, the harder it is for me to make a decision. If it were me at that campground, I would probably opt to stay a bit longer until I found a compelling reason to leave or to go somewhere else. A good campground is very often hard to find.
Just came across a list of places in Oklahoma that you might be interested in. I think you’ve been to a couple of them already, but I haven’t heard you mention others. Here’s the link to the article: http://www.onlyinyourstate.com/oklahoma/waterfall-roadtrip-ok/
Oh, cool. I wasn’t actually planning on going into Oklahoma this trip, but maybe I will. That sounds quite fun!
