At least now you know you can fit into a smaller camp space. They normally give the maximum "box length" allowed.

In my experience campgrounds are all over the place on this.

We've easily backed into campsites that are not to be used by a TT longer than 18' (ours is 24' bumper to hitch). On the other hand, we've had trouble maneuvering into sites that are supposed to accept a 30' trailer.

You're right of course, Raul. I've found much the same. But, usually, I could fit into a "smaller" camping space.

Default I just noticed ...

I'm a Senior Member. How can that be, I don't know nuthin about these things? Why I've not even been camping with it yet (excluding my own yard experiences).
Y'all be warned about the company you're hanging with.

Time to put the yard-bird on the grill. Yumm, yummm.

I think you set the record for the fastest member to reach 100 posts! That's all it takes to become a senior member. Congrats!

Default So then

asking lots of dumb questions
and posting smart aleck responses

presents the keys to the palace.

I've learned a lot here and I appreciate it.

Default I learned how to make it rain ...

yesterday evening I put out some fertilizer and so this morning I started watering it in. Six and a half hours worth of moving hoses until everything was soaked in. Within an hour of retiring the hoses it started to rain.

On and off, all the remaining day long. I didn't even get to play with the new toy (camper). I did check out my black tank repair and its still holding water. Extended forecast says not to bother camping over the forth, more buckets expected.

Boo-hoo, I was wanting to visit this nearby place: Engineer Beach RV Park. Have any of y'all ever been there?

Happy forth to y'all.

Default Engineer Beach RV Park

Engineer Beach RV Park looks nice.
Lived off the Tenn River in UA (Upper Alabama) for 7 years enjoyed the area. Muscle Shoals, Ala in a dry county just South of where they made the movie Walking Tall. Still have a few interesting stories about that area.
But another good camping area.

Later Tim

Default senior member

Well RCREYES and wrascal just have to give you folks an update. While wrascal may have set a record getting to be a senior member he took about 15 days to do it. I just became a senior member also, joined on 6/25/2013. 7 days of posting.
An interesting point, for both of us it took over 3 weeks of trying to get into this website. Guessing it was because we both had hotmail accounts. We both opened gmail accounts and got in. Now we are both Senior members.

I think that we have both learned a lot and shared a few things on the way.

Any rate still trying to learn more about my 1969 Traveler hilo and get out and do some camping with it.
See my "blog" on the hilo

1969 Traveler hilo Help request & data

Later Tim & Nancy and a dog that wants to go camping.
