Frontier Days

Current Location: Fort Toulouse Campground, Wetumpka, Alabama

On Monday and Tuesday, we ran various errands including laundry, groceries, picking up a sewing machine we loaned to a friend, dropping off an early Christmas present, getting one of Malcolm’s teeth filled (an existing filling chipped off) and Malcolm’s hair cut.

Wednesday morning, bright and early, we showed up to the Fort Toulouse office to get our assignments for our volunteer duties for Frontier Days here at the fort. Malcolm directed traffic at the main intersection and Val worked with loading and unloading school buses. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday about 11,000 children, parents, teachers and chaperones converge on the fort to learn about life in the late 1700’s and early 1800’s.

We have the same duties on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. On Saturday, since there are no school buses to direct, Val will work in another capacity. Malcolm will continue to direct traffic, most likely at his main intersection. On Sunday, we have to pack up and head north to Nashville.

Malcolm got to walk around and take pictures after his shift with directing traffic on Wednesday. Here are a few:
