We were in site #55. Their group started at #53, IRRC. Three RVs on the odd numbered side and two on the even numbered side, going down in numbers (toward the lake).

You should be pretty close to the park hosts who are in the last space on the right, (odd numbered side) going up away from the lake.

If you can't get moved, look out for the HUGE Seismic 5er. LOL, that's party central for that group.

I wrote about this group in detail on the camping etiquette thread.

We've camped there since then, over on the other side of the campground with wmtire and his geocaching group. Nice and polite campers over there in the low numbered spaces which is away from the water.

Why is it that in so many RV parks the rowdy ones are the people who reserve spaces closest to the water?

I laugh when we go to Jimmie Davis State Park and see the rowdy bunch down around the #40 space. They party their booties off on Saturday night, then space #40 is where church is held on Sunday morning.
We choose space ONE when we camp there. No where near the water and right across from a camp host.

DH and I were sitting here in our pretty baby this morning discussing trips, and while it's not necessarily our "next" camping trip, we're planning a late summer/early fall trip to Arden, NC to Amendment Arms to pick up our two Joshua MK5s which we ordered (paid for in advance) when this new firearm company was "born". We'll be proud owners of two VERY early issue/serial numbers. This weapon is a true hybrid AK/AR.

It's named The Joshua after the passage "yea though I walk thru the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil" (for *Thou* art with me)

And OC, *this* may be the trip where we get to meet you and TOWTA!

I'm in Des Moines, IA working at Adventureland Amusement Park. They let workampers stay next door in the adjacent RV park, so you can walk to work. However, I don't tow a car, I have an electric scooter bike. But get this: My own state doesn't require my scooter bike to be licensed, but IOWA DOES REQUIRE IT TO BE LICENSED! Thus, I had to give the state of Iowa, specifically, the county of Polk, $7 just so I could ride my scooter (eGo Vehicles) to Wal-Mart! My being a non-resident of Iowa doesn't count, can't ride the scooter to Wal-Mart unless it has a license!

My next trip (If I'm not too pooped from this adventure) is to go to Minnesota in October to do the Sugar Beet harvest. After than, who knows.

Sounds like a winner. Bring the 5er and we'll fab and install you a rolling, slide out shelf or drawer in your basement.
