ANDALUSIA SLOUGH, U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS CAMPGROUND, ON THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER, ANDALUSIA, IL
10 June, 2004. Total white trash here. This place is 16 campsites just off the main road. There is no electricity and one outhouse. At half price, the cost was $2. A few of the sites were totally flooded. We bought a 20 lb. bag of ice and turned on the swamp cooler. That lasted about an hour. We were so hot and miserable and getting eaten alive by mosquitos that we left after two hours. We went back into Moline and bought an air conditioner at Wal-Mart, along with a button kit so we could attach a piece of tarp to direct the cold air into the bus.
