I'll chime in for using the Mr. Clean sponge. I bought the mop one, which comes on a long handle. Let me tell you... no scrubbing or elbow grease needed. It is such a simple solution, we wonder why we ever did all of that scrubbing. LOL
I find that it also helps to take a towel and blot the fur that has been exposed before washing with the de-skunking mix. This helps to get a lot of the initial oil off before it penetrates. Make certain not to rub the towel over other parts of your pet, otherwise you will just be spreading the oil to uninfected parts.
Yes, my boy gets skunked at least once a season. He's always looking for a new playmate. LOL
We made the trip to to the campground Saturday. Got the cover off and the slides opened up. No signs of any winter visitors (critters), so I emptied the tubs that are stored there.
Our roads in the campground are not open yet. The snow is just melting there, so we, along with lots of our neighbors with the same idea, carted belongings to our sites by wagons. We had a group of friends over and had the first campfire of the season. Ahhh, the smell. :-)
Anxious to get back into the groove? Maybe a little. LOL
We went Saturday. Boy, was it crowded! We normally go Friday but the group we were meeting there this year picked the day. I agree the vendors really wern't anything special this year. I did buy some new sheets and a pouch to clip on my waist when i'm not wearing pockets.
The husband and I were dreamers this year and looked at Class A's. Some beauty's there, that's for sure.
We had dinner at the Red Rose. Made for a nice day/night.
Now if only Winter would leave us alone!
Being able to camp every weekend, just an hour from home has made my life so much happier, which in turn has made my husband happier. ;-) We keep food and clothes at the camper so there is minimum we need to bring fresh each week. We turn our water off when we're not there but stay hooked up to the electric.
We lucked out and have a bunch of wonderful neighbors. We plan a menu and get together every Saturday for fun and games. We get together with this same group of people once a month during the "off" season for dinners out. Being seasonal has allowed us to make a whole new batch of life long friends.
We also became familier with the owner and workers at our park who have also become friends of ours.
The good part of seasonal camping is that you make it what you want it to be. If you want to spend time alone, so be it. If you want to be a social butterfly, the makings are all there.
