1) 1990 and me girlfriend (now she's my DW) and I were tent camping at the state park on Put In Bay. We had a beautiful site on top of a cliff overlooking the west coast of the island. Experienced a beautiful romantic sunset followed by one of the windiest rainstorms I have ever experienced. Slept in the car that night (1985 Dodge Lancer so not much sleep was had) and packed up wet the next morning.

2) 1997 made reservations online sight unseen at a private campground in Mamoth, KY. Arrived to find the driveway into the park was the steepest gravel road I had ever seen. Carefully pulled UP to the office and checked in. Biggest dump we ever stayed at. The one and only restroom had a bees nest larger than my head that the owners refused to do anything about. Luckily we had our own facilities and full hookup. All we did was sleep at the park, all day was spent spelunking.

Youroo,

I've always been in the dark when it comes to most things.

My DW, DD, and I all three enjoy exploring caves any chance we get. We have visited every one in the local area (some in this area aren't worth much) and this summer will be visiting a few in the Black Hills area of South Dakota on our way back from Yellowstone, can't wait!

If you can be this camping trip, you win !

If you can beat this camping trip you win.
Was on the outer beltway around Boston (I-495) near Haverhill Oct 1999.

I was traveling at 62 MPH, was hit by a Ford expedition in the rear end of my 26' Flagstaff. it was brand new ! Fellow was traveling at high speed weaving in and out of traffic. Had not been for the fridge, he would have come out the front of my TT.

No, I was not stopped, I hauled him for 1/4 mile before I could pull to the shoulder of the road.

Shucks, I was going to post here, but can't compare with that.

Sid, your trailer tires were probably over-loaded.

Camping in KOA campgrounds has been our worst experience. Filthy bathrooms, rude hosts, unlevel and unkept campsites, kids and adults out of control at all hours. We have not stayed in any KOA's in years because of our experience with them.
