Well, now I know what they mean .......throw a party and nobody comes
Maybe someone else can try again later in the summer.......
Friday we arrived at the park around 3 and by 4 pm were sitting in the shade with a cool drink, watching all the "big boys" try to get their rigs into their spaces. Kind of like "how many licks does it take to get to the center of the tootsie roll pop?"- "How many attempts does it take to get that thing onto the pad? "
Then there's leveling, push out the extra room, get out the gas grill, put up the outdoor lights
, allign the satelite dish for the TV, start a huge bonfire..... then go inside and turn the airconditioner up full blast!
This is camping?????
It was hot and sunny all weekend, so we made good use of our new canopy shade and bottled water. We spent the weekend doing 2 of our most favorite things in life- reading and sleeping... and at times attempted to do both simultaneously
Even made it into Ionia on Saturday afternoon to do some antique shopping (lots of nice shops). Then back to camp for a cool shower and a nap......
We did not leave till Monday morning so we had time to engage in another well beloved pastime on Sunday- watching how long it took everyone else to pack up and close down their big rigs for travel
......then watched the long line as they had to wait an hour or more to empty their tanks.
Now I must admit that our old Casita
did have a toilet and we did the yucky clean-out bit too
, but we decided that it was not worth the effort it took to deal with it. There is a port-a-potty on board (it can be emptied into any toilet), but we have yet to make use of it. Public restrooms are soooo much easier ......
So much for a non-event. Sorry everyone missed it- we had a great time!
