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.
Yep i'm a seasonal and my dog walks around the whole campground with me...all the time. He is a magnet for kids and anyone else needing/wanting a kiss/hug. He's rather large and hard to miss. :-) He does not bark back at the "visiting" dogs that talk to him as we walk by their sites. He loves meeting and playing with all the other pups when allowed. He is such a good boy that management and workers from the campground come to see how he's doing. He's never chained up on our site but sits by his people, watching everyone go by. He doesn't poop in other's sites because he is trained to go in his spot just as he does at home. Yep, i'm bragging just a little. Just to let other's know that there are good dogs and owners out there.
Cash is our good boy who is never short of loving company.
Our campground is an hour from our house. On 3/30 we went to our seasonal and opened the camper. No surprises so I got to 409 everything and unload the tubs of kitchen ware back into the cabinets. On 4-06 we went back out and spent the night. Had a great time getting together with some of the neighbors we had not seen all winter. On 04-12 we went out to spend the weekend. Got the lot all spruced up, furniture of out the shed and into the casita. DH even has an outdoor sink hooked up by his grill so he has a "full kitchen" outdoors. Since he is retired, he gets to spend more time out there then I do... I just get the weekends and an occasional long one.
Enjoy your site!
I talked my husband into buying our TT 3 years ago for the express reason of putting it on a campground 1 hour from home. He retired at that time and is now able to spend all the time he wants with his grandkids, making lots of happy memories for them all. We are there every weekend through the season, starting tomorrow. We will be relocating to another state after I retire and we will not see his grands that often. At that time we will sell the bunkhouse model, get a bus and hit the road. Enjoy that grandson!
