So this one lady checked in to a tenting site that she had reserved. She asked for a load of firewood to be delivered, but when Russell went to drop it off, he said the site was empty.
So he asked if I had the right site.
Hmm. Pretty sure that I did, so I went for a drive on the gator to see what happened to her. She had been checked into T9, and I found her and her group all set up in T5.
I remembered the conversation from when she booked. She had said it was the tenting site furthest away, and that can only be T9, so that's the one I booked her in. She says "oh, well I meant this one".
They had four tents and all their gear set up in there. Would have taken them an hour or more to move it all, so I said that it would depend on the people who were supposed to be in there and see if they minded being in T9 instead. Turned out those people never showed last night so we'll see if they arrive today. I don't expect it to be a problem.
I walked around at 11:15pm or so and there were lots of people out enjoying their campfires.
I did the same thing at 1:45am and came across a group of four young people making a ton of noise in the middle of the roadway. The girl disappeared right away, but the three young men didn't. I took two open beer away from them. Two of them were pretty drunk as it was, the third was still pretty coherent.
I asked what campsite they were from and they said they weren't camping, just visiting a friend who was camping. I explained it was time for them to head out, and the two drunk ones didn't like that idea. For a minute or two, I thought I was going to have a problem. The third guy was a voice of reason to the drunk ones though and he talked them into leaving.
Still two or three campfires going on, and I reminded one group to keep their voices down. They were all being pretty good though. As I was walking away, I tripped over the next fire ring. Didn't fall down, but put a good gash in my leg! It's pretty sore this morning.
All in all, not bad. Hopefully tonight goes smoothly. Big fireworks show this evening, so that should be fun.
I do like seeing the campground full, and everybody enjoying themselves though.
Our Amazon deal of the day isn't in itself a great "deal" as such, but it is something that every RV'er should have in their tool kit.
I always have a roll of this stuff handy. Never used it for over five years, and then in April of this year while down in Mexico I was glad that I had it.
My kit. As with the one in the link above, I had the 4" wide by 10 ft long version.
You can buy them in various widths and lengths, although I thought that the 4"x10' size would be sufficient for emergency use.
Somehow, a branch had caught on my roof and put a tear in it.
But I was well prepared with Eternabond and had the problem fixed in no time!
