Last Sunday morning as I was walking my dog in the old RV park in front of the one I am currently in, I caught a whiff of what I thought was shoe polish. Now, it reminded me that I keep forgetting to polish my dress shoes since I don’t wear them much. But then I only smelled that smell when I was directly over and polishing my shoes but this odor filled the northern half of the park!
As I got up in the valley towards the old one lane bridge over the old Highway 30, the odor changed and I could detect the smell of acetone under the shoe polish smell. That’s when I realized what I was smelling was an illegal meth lab. They had been cooking methamphetamine there all night.
I called the Caldwell Police but their dispatch demonstrated no interest. Heck if I know what happened.
Since then I found out that the RV Park I am in bought that terrible, old, derelict RV park along the interstate and is in the process of cleaning and clearing out the old abandoned dwellings. Caldwell Campground and RV Park is really going to be nice when it expands and takes down some of these fences.
