Thanks for the replies. I stayed the first night at Costco as I needed to rush to hospital, a couple nights at the RV park I mentioned as it was pretty nice and was secure so didn't have to worry about wife being by herself.
hospital didn't have hardly enough parking for the cars.
I do like to dry camp when possible. will use my senior pass whenever possible (love it) its like filling the gas tank for free the next day when we camp for free or almost free!
Thanks again for all the replys, gave me a few ideas for later.
BTW I did see the Elks offered RV parking but had let my membership expire when the lodge locally moved to a very small building. and, you can only reinstate locally at your lodge I was told
