Last minute work around…

newspotAs the blogger wisdom suggested “things will work out” and that we would find something… Well, guess what? …the wisdom of the bloggers prevailed! On the day before we were going to move to a rather rough looking RV park some 30 miles away there was a knock at our door at 9:30 pm…

Park Ranger “Just wanted to let you know the lady down the way who has 10 sites reserved just told me you could have site 13 if you can fit into it tomorrow and the next day”

Me “What? Wow? Fantastic? Great!!!! Tomorrow morning I will look it over and see if we can get into it!”

So he gives me the ladies name and site number so I can say thanks and we will offer to pay her for the site she prepaid for but didn’t get to cancel in time for a refund.

The next morning rolls around and I go over at the crack of dawn to take a look at it and boy, it does look tight… Yikes! SOOOOooooo I devised a plan of attack and used all of my RV driving skills I acquired over these last three ;) months and was able to pull off the impossible (for me anyhow)… so now we are in site 13 with one slide about 18 inches from a tree and on the other side we are too close to put our awning out … but what a fantastic spot we lucked out into.

Only 30 amps and tight as well as the noisy memorial day weekend campers to cope with… how lucky were we???… ahhhh life is grand!!!

  3. Ha! Good for you! I'll bet that even with the 30 amps and the noisy weekend and only being 18" from a tree...that the beer is still cold!

  5. Good stuff, at least you have a place to stay for the weekend. We only have 15 amps , at the farm but can get by quite nicely with that. Cold beer, our own internet and satellite dish for tv, and a place to sleep. Life is good! Enjoy.
