July 4th Travels In Your Rolling Retreat

Hey all. I hope everyone had a great time celebrating The 4th Of July. I wanted to throw in a feel good thread to see how we all spent the holiday enjoying our MBS motorhomes. My wife and I just returned home from Rehoboth Beach, DE. We stayed at a brand new campground on the bay called Massey's Landing RV Resort. Nice location and everything was brand new. Great pool with swim up pool bar. It rained and was overcast most of the weekend but being away and enjoying our rolling retreat felt great. And of course the sun came out in force today the day we left. But oh well that is Murphy's law. We are looking forward to a full summer's worth of camping.

Sorry the weather wasn't nicer for you. Thanks for the heads-up on a nice resort. We will definitely have to pay them a visit.

Our wonderful trip ended messy, literally, so I'll talk about this part first, with no intention to spoil the thread. Our black tank valve failed twice before, and it was supposedly fixed two weeks ago, but, it wasn't, and you can guess how I found out.

Until we came to that messy ending, we had a fabulous time. We dry camped for two nights at Laguna Campgroud which is located at ~4000 ft in Cleveland National Forest in SoCal. All the reserved sites were full, but we were lucky to have one of the last two first-come-first-served sites. Sites are very spacious, far enough from adjacent sites, in the woods. Beautiful moonless starry nights, wonderful hiking trails. The temperature was crazy, it went from ~90 during the day to ~50 at night.
One of the highlights - we had saved someone from potentially a big trouble. While hiking in the middle of nowhere, we ran into a lone hiker who was desperately lost. She was in her 60s I guess, and she told us she was just not into cell phone and Google map etc. So I pulled out my cell phone (luckily we had signal) and showed her on Google map where we were and where she should be headed. We walked her back to the trail she was from. Everyone was happy in the end

We are from Central MD and Masseys Landing is on our "do soon" list! We stayed Castaway Resort near Ocean City (same folks) and had a GREAT time.

We liked Castaway's too. Went there last month. Massey's is in progress of building their beach bar right now and still finishing off some other items but all camp sites are level, hard pack stone a few with paved sites on edge of waterline. With it being a holiday weekend the place was packed with golf carts which turned me off a bit but everything else was nice.

We had a lovely weekend, camped at our friend's cabin on Crescent Lake here in the Oregon Cascade mountain range. I really wish I had photographic evidence because the entry and exit to our parking spot was truly a white knuckler. The cabin is on a slope down a narrow dirt road. Fortunately the spot was essentially a pull-through but the entry and exit were wicked. The entry was an off camber left turn and steep. Came down VERY slowly and in first gear. Still managed to lock up the wheels and slide slightly. Never felt like I was in danger but certainly pushing the limits. Our parking spot was fabulous and nearly dead flat. The exit, back up to the dirt road was again an off camber left turn up a reasonably steep, yet short slope. There were some soft spots in the dirt and some ruts from run off. To add to the adventure, I had to swing wide to avoid tree branches and try to keep the rear wheels on the best surface possible. Used the accelerator liberally and made it up the hill without issue. There was a lot of sway and the traction control symbols flashed a crossed the dash. I'm sure it looked much crazier from the outside. I was deliberately the only one in the motorhome to mitigate the risk to my family. A harrowing tale, yet I assure you I never pushed the limits beyond what I thought the motorhome would be capable of. Nerve wracking nonetheless and the MBS performed better than expected. Headed to Wallowa Lake via Phillips Reservoir on Saturday.

We ended our fourth at Crater Lake National Park on way to Vegas. What a spectacular view there. Planning for the big one to start in August from Vegas to New England and down east coast and back. Pondering putting a Mini behind for this trip.
