The slow slow road north



I'm heading north, but not very fast. Today we did only 75 miles. We plan on staying two days in another Federal campground. Originally we thought we might stay even longer. It's a beautiful location right on a lake.

However . . . it's not run all that well. We got a nice site near the bathrooms, but the bathrooms are locked. It's a good long walk to the next ones, and all but one bathroom is closed in that unit. Trash disposal is also a problem as the dumpster is a long long ways away. The campground map doesn't even show its location.

I'd have complained to the camp host, but he was already getting chewed out by another camper about something else.

Maybe it's just because the campground only recently opened for the season. One can but hope they get their act together. It's a shame that such a nice location is so poorly run.

(I'll mention the name once I've moved on, for obvious reasons.)

  1. Sometimes the camp grounds are not well managed. Sounds like the problem there. I worked at a state park on a "senior summer" program, and management made all the difference.

    1. It makes a big difference when budget cuts require creativity to get things done.

  2. It's finally getting a lot nicer up north here. Only a little bit of snow on the ground except for the elevations now

    1. You tempt me good sir, but has the frost left the ground? Until it does it will be a bear to open up my water lines.

      I see the long range forecast for next weekend predicts mixed frozen gunk. Is that a last gasp or a hint of things to come?

    2. Forecast is mostly rain over the next week with lows getting in the low 30's. Not too shabby

  3. There is no reason to hurry back to the cold, right?

    1. We do miss friends and family . . . but we don't miss 'cold.

  4. I can understand wanting to avoid the cold as long as you can.

    1. The warmer it gets back home, the easier it will be to open up the house.
