A $100 PP would fix that for the few times that you know in advance that there are no services and only bring it then.

Thanks for suggestion, but for me it's a lot easier said than done.
We travel long distances and usually close to 90 days at a time. If just doesn't make sense to attempt to carry PP around for one week-end. We're in a 13' Scamp so real estate is at a premium. We camp where there's potties or in remote treed and places with lots of bushes.
Since we're backpackers at heart and done a lot of it we know how to dispose of human waste for no impact. But those techniques don't work very well in a crowded corner of the desert, ie rallies.

Camping today with no electric after a long time of always having it. I'm running lights and furnace on 12V and propane so no issues there, but I did have to recharge my drill battery (Ryobi) in the restroom since I didn't realize it was almost empty when I brought it. I'm fine without sewer or water but for more than a few days would probably want electric just for recharging things. I'm okay with campground showers and live where AC is normally not needed.

To me the most important thing is a reliable wireless data or wifi Internet connection. I run my business while travelling or camping.

Wife and I often take trips in the begining and ends of high season and often stay at State or National parks here in Maine and New Hampshire.
We never make reservation and this past Sept., just by chance, didn't go to Acadia National Park and went over to Lamoine State park and got one of the 6 sites thay had left and upon talking to another late arrival was told he had contacted Acadia at noon, around the time we got to Lamoine and he was told NO SITES AVAILABLE.
As said just by chance I saved myself 50 miles of driving out there and back.
The rest of our trip across Maine at 3 other State parks was not a problem
So you never know.

Wondering what ratio of campers want all the hook up....and Pay
the campers who would go to a State or National park and Pay less but have no water / elect / sewer / store / laundry / propane / showers

Just wondering?
Maybe the next one I host will be of the National Park type. Maybe
Hi: Gerry.... For our Niagara Wine Escape rally I think we found a good private campground. They can accommodate all styles of camping hookups... tents to MoHo's. We are there at the end of the season so the seasonals are back home to their routines and the Riverside Motel & Campground folks are happy to have us. Niagara Falls is a tourist mecca so there's lots of things to do other than camping.

Put us with the no 'hookups needed' folks. The sites in most private cg's are too close together for our liking.
