Sherry's Story

Let's face it - at my age . . . I've had a lot of chapters in my life. I've got a bag of tricks filled from Girl Scouting and counseling skills, pretty hard core biking skills with a big trip of bicycling across the U.S.A., Sunday cruising skills in Ms. Louise, open fire cooking skills in cast iron pots, hiking and fishing skills,
way too many hours spent in
classes for degrees in art skills, 
and skills as a military wife,
mother skills of three super human beings,
veterinarian tech skills,
commercial artist skills before entering the
field of education and s-h-h-h . . .
don't tell anyone but 
I have a love affair with my camera and computer.  


If you like knives - another secret passion of mine - head up to the office and check out my collection.  Sure...I'll let you touch them and oh-h-h and aw-w-w-w.

It's not a hidden secret that teaching 8th graders honed my Ninja skills to manage an RV park.

Just like most folks, when I was eight years old, I had nary an inkling of what life would hold for my future. Thinking that drawing on my momma's wallpaper with her lovely lipstick might have been a clue,  ya think? But the out-of-door wander lust obviously won out since I've tried to pack as much adventure and curiosity into my 7 decades as possible.  Maybe I was just meant to be in the out-of-doors since I spent many a summer at Camp Latonka and Camp Shoshoni as a camper and counselor.

After retirement, hubby and I got the itch to explore the RV-ing life. The very first campground we camped at was...go ahead, guess!  Yep.  Pheasant Acres RV Park at Saint James, Mo. Little did I know that I this sweet little piece of Ozark Paradise would provide me with amazing daily entertainment since 2010 and give me many years of laughter, friendships and meet and greets with wonderful campers from all walks of life.

Each evening after I check to see that the campers are bedded down and I put my head on the pillow surrounded by Ember, Mork, Mindy, Fred and Ginger...whew...I am thankful that I am in the perfect chapter of my life . . . 
                                                              here in the Foothills of the Ozarks.

We make every effort to answer emails in a timely manner. 
That's the left side of my brain working.

If only I could just get the four-legged children to pick up the phone
and write down messages, my job could be a little easier.
Sometimes this is the right side of my brain working. 

Until's just little ole me manning the reservations.
