The Kansas Eggstravaganza


IMG_9283 (Medium)

The Kansas Eggstravaganza is well under way this Wednesday afternoon, though it officially doesn’t start until tomorrow.  We arrived a day earlier than planned on Sunday to a packed campground enjoying their Labor Day weekend.  We were lucky and happened to get the spot of someone who had checked out early.

By midday Monday there were a number of eggs in the campground waiting for their reserved spots.  Seems departure time at this COE campground is 6PM.  The latest we’ve ever run into on our travels.  Many of those here pushed it right up to the limit before turning over their site.  Can’t really blame them, of course.  Just making the best of the last Summer holiday.

As there was a chance of rain, the first thing we did on Tuesday morning was put up an old Army tent.  It was a group effort and led to much laughter among those attempting to get the thing up.  Eventually, we succeeded.
