My Seasonal Spot

I just made my seasonal spot and its free I just have to do the up keep myself, I mow it, it isn't totally level but good enough, there is only a 100 foot extension cord with 120v for the battery charger to recharge the battery pack or run the genny, I do have water, there aren't any other people around to bug me and it’s about a million square foot of space to move around on. Its easy to park and I can always move to another senic spot. It also has a pond stocked with Channel Cat and I feed them, it has its own fishing pier with water and electric at the pier. There's lots of wood for bond fires. It is secluded in the pine trees/hard woods and it is 9 miles to the closest little town if you need anything. There is lots of wildlife moving around to watch and eat them if you like, the view is nice and the air is clean and there is no city noise to be had here, LOL. Here's a few pics.

We have the same option too right out our back door but a change in scenery is always part of the getaway 👍👍😄

That is true but its easy to hook up and drive to another get away for a bit then when you return your spot is still there. LOL I'll be doing alot of camping the rest of this year til mid Jan. 2015 I have several locations in mind here in Texas, and Louisiana, and Arkansas then back. I'm excited about the adventure.

We have 8 months of heat wave, and 4 months of cool weather. We only have 3 seasons here really. Summer, Fall a little, then spring a little then hot again. LOL

Funny thing happened at the end of this season though, both of their neighbors have pulled up roots. One bought another trailer elsewhere in the park and the other is just selling.

Things that make ya go Hmmmmm.
We already scoped out the neighbor next door (we're a corner lot) turns out to be a retired couple from our home town that live not far from us! Very nice, been there a long time (park model not moving).
It's a gated cg and that is a plus in my DW's mind....to me no biggy as it's in the heart of Amish country. Oh, and it's a rather strict cg...out of hand/noisy campers are not tolerated...this is why so many families rave about it..& super clean too!

I bit the bullet this morning & signed us up....we be there opening day (4/1/15) trailer n stuff in tow. We're excited about it....almost feels like I just booked a cruise!! Now to find a golf cart!
