Hi Jim: What a beautiful campground.  I love the pictures.  I have to find orange chairs too.  They look really festive.  What is on your stair?  Looks like something to catch sand?  Any suggestions as to what you used or wish you brought with? Thanks for the pictures.Linda

SmileHi Linda! Yes it was a very nice place. The paito mat,step mat, chairs and rug came from the camping world store we bought them online. Great place to shop. We got a large electric griddle and brought with us. Great for cooking pancakes. bacon ,.  eggs ,burgers or just about anything. It cleans up easy and fits nicely above the fridge. JIm

Nice set-up Jim! I agree with Linda...the chairs look nice...especially with the orange rug and wooden table.

Hey Jim, did you get any lookers or any interest in the Rpod?  I would think it would attract some attention.  We are looking forward to our first outing when we pick our 172 up in a few weeks.  Did you have it hooked up to full service, or did you boondock?

Happy traveling,

SmileYes we had a lot of people looking at us as we traveled, and many people stopped  by the camp site just to look and say Hi. Everybody liked  the little guy. We camped with full hook ups everything worked fine but we did not light the hot water heater. They had very nice bathrooms and shower house at the park. Happy camping ,Jim.

Nice setup Jim.

Yes.  These things certainly do turn heads.

At one point during our trip last weekend, we had a small line waiting to go in and check it out!

Let's hit the road!
