11-7-09 Saturday (Trailer Park Display)

I made a slideshow of today’s adventures.  The gist: Jim and I dropped the car off at a Lowe’s parking lot and rode with Carl and Tim to Koreshan State Park for a Vintage RV show.  With all the years I’ve lived here, I’ve never been to this park.  It was named after one of it owner’s, David Koresh, who created this religion of Koreshanity.  The Koreshan’s have an interesting history.  Wikipedia doesn’t explain much but does touch on some key points about this religious sect.  Anyway, the RV show contained about 10 or so RV’s.  They varied from tear drop trailers to larger motorhomes.  They all seemed older than the 70’s.  Most were open for a full walk through.  A few were roped off and we were only able to peek inside.  We walked around the old Koreshan settlement which featured several old buildings.

Across the street, at a factory outlet mall, we wandered a Fine Art show.  We enjoyed seeing sculptures, knik-knaks and the like.  It wasn’t that large so we were able to finish it fairly quickly.

Up the road from that was the International Design Center.  None of us had ever been here either.  Turns out it’s a mall of high end furnishings.  The prices on some of this was amazing.  $40,000 or more for chandeliers.  Whoa!  We had fun though.

After browsing the over-our-priced items like we were recently on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, but more like Lifestyles of the Broke and Broker, we ate lunch.  We split up, went to our perspective homes/trailer and then met Carl and Tim again later at their house for some Chinese take-out.

Thanks to Steve MacArthur for telling us about the RV show and the fine art show!

  1. I don't think David Koresh had anything to do with the Koreshans... He was part of the Branch Davidans, right? Their profit or whatever? And the whole Waco thing? The Koreshans started way before he ever existed. Here's a little mor einfo: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koreshan_Unity

    Isn't it great how Wikipedia can make us all so frakkin' brilliant?

    It's interesting to me that the little sign put up at the site doesn't even seem to be entirely accurate based on other readings. They weren't all celibate.

    Anywho- looks like a fun day! Love the vintage RV's!
