those things happen. I prefer to count the days... we usually arrive on Friday by 6pm and don't leave until 8-9 Sunday evening, shame to look at that as two units of camping when all your value is measured in usage.

Here's the abridged version of the story:
we were in the RV, asleep that night. At 3am, we got a call and had to return home for a family crisis. (ie...son at home alone/party) I count the nights stayed only, and not the days I spend there...which number MUCH higher.

Ahhhh the Home Alone parties..............memories.

Good point. Maybe I'll count both ways next season to see the difference.
We live 55 miles from the campsite, and I sometimes roll out there to kill a weekday, or Jet Ski for the day, so I only counted nights actually slept there. (which was at an all-time high)

We have two retired greyhounds we camp with, one is a 9 year old white one and a happy 87 lbs and other is a 6 year old 95 lbs. He is a brindle, there names are Jo-Jo and Stretch. Greys are generally quite. They are 45 mph couch potatos, they are wounderfull to have any where at any time. We camp with friends that two of there own. We all pick up after our dogs like everone should. But what I see alot of is kids walking there pets, and when they poo, it is left on the ground. I guess there is no home trainning for that!

(unless they do it at the same time, and then that's just plain weird!). Ha ha!

... weird, but on the other hand, they're less likely to chase you.

Oops sorry Suebee, I screwed up your post. Still getting used to this awesome moderator power.

If I remember correctly, the part I deleted was where Suebee mentioned that she loves great big dogs and enjoy having them run right up to her all snarling and drooling, and she thinks keeping a dog on a leash is just a sin... That about it?

Had a dog owner come by and tell me to readjust the sat dish. Seems his dog got tangled up with his leash and the dish!! I probably need to paint it fire plug red. I guess that is why it's called direct tv.

No stock in Purina, It's not good for them! Greyhounds do not eat as much as they look like they would. We did have 3 at one time. The other one " Bandit" who was our first one was 76 lbs. All 3 hound ate 50 lbs a week.

Good thing those hounds are not like our Pug dog. She eats PRESCRIPTION dog food (Science Diet) only available at the vet. It's over $22 for 10lb bags.

It's probably cheaper to feed the dog real meat...in which she loves.
