We gave it a lot of thought and did the math on how much it will cost to go out most weekends and pay RV park prices over the next 5 months. Since the owner pro-rated the site the price was something we couldn’t turn down. The season runs from April 15th to October 15th.
Site # 84, can’t see it very well because it has TREES! . So, go figure, we could have decided this earlier and saved some of the wood we burned and saved the cost of a few days camping, doh!
We spent the weekend as “weekenders” on site 83 and ended it as “members” for the season on site 84. Site 83 is fine but is in need of too much work to be usable for us.
Site 84 has no mud, an easier way for us to decide if we want to keep doing this next year. We move from site 83 to site 84 next weekend and they’ll let us borrow their mower to cut the grass.
The previous people built a brick and plastic patio, not perfect but better than mud and we can fix it up. The campground owner is going to add more gravel and we’ll take it from there next weekend. The money we’ll save will easily exceed the amount of fuel we typically use plus we will still be able to go to Geneseo to begin the season on March 31st and end the season on October 31st in time for their Halloween celebration.
We’re going to pick up some solar lights and other trinkets for the site this week, when the owner puts down the gravel we’re going to level the site and put down blocks and rubber pads for the leveling jacks. We aren’t going to go crazy and build a deck or anything like that, just make it nice enough to enjoy when we go there.
There are a few issues, cell phone coverage and their internet wasn’t consistent. So I’m looking into a repeater for my Verizon MiFi, typically if there is no signal though a repeater or high gain antenna won’t help, there has to be signal to boost after all.
I’ll post more as we go, have a great week everybody!
