Ha! I did the math recently, we have over 1,000 nights in the Thousand Trails + Encore system in the past 10 years. In that time, we've spent about $10,000 in the membership, fees, add-ons, and our yearly dues. Figuring $30-60/night for equivalent parking, I've saved $20-50,000.

But the parks... they have great parks, they have fair parks, and they have their share of turds. This one was more of the turd variety and not even because I kissed the tree. The whole thing is tight and setup with all buddy-sites. I can't imagine sharing a small yard with someone for 3-4 months.

Yowza. And I've been in Kathryn Hanna Abby. Worst I had it there was my bike got stolen.

And then recovered a few weeks later when the thieves realized that they couldn't patch the 2 flat tires with paper and duct tape.

We drove through there once and definitely a bit tight. We actually really like Royal Coachmen just up the road a ways.

They had no availability when we wanted to stay at Royal Coachmen.

Yeah, I've only gotten in there in December. Have actually spent 3 Christmases there now.

I remember. You were in site 100 & said it was a good fit but, it was already reserved for our stay. So, we ended up in site 150. Now I know why I didn't see your bike anywhere in the campground......they found it already!
