Ok, I haven't posted to this thread in a while but I've been collecting.

First, my neighbor in Daytona made some fancy bins for his water hose and electric cord.

Second, my son ran out to the truck and then yelled for help. He was afraid to come back in. They weren't this close at first, but my daughter made "kissy face noises" at them and drew them this close.

That has to be the dirtiest fresh water hose I've seen in a long time. They must throw it in the container and never clean it.

And yes... I realize it's the INSIDE of the hose that touches the water but ....

And what is zip tied to it? The cable coax?
It almost looks like two conductor lamp cord.
If it's heat tape, it won't do a bit of good fastened like that.

I was wondering if they had filters in one and a portable EMS in the other?

LOL, yeah it was pretty filthy. My guess is coax but I didn't look that close when I was there.

Sounds about right for the size of the totes.

I wonder if that camper is left there for an extended period. I cant put my finger on it, but it just looks like its been parked there a while. Maybe the dust on everything...

Heh, yeah. I assume people are feeding them and that's why it was so comfortable being so close. At another park I go to, people tell stories there are ones that can get aggressive if you're outside at your picnic table.

These ones weren't shy. I went talking and growling at them to get them to shoo. It wasn't until I started waving a welcome mat at them did they finally leave.

Camped on the east side of Glacier National park a few years ago. Two ladies pulled in next to us. Took them about 15 minutes to get the little 18' camper parked.
Next day, the one lady was inside whenever we looked and the other was cleaning the camper on the outside .. windows, siding, tires, and even removed the bikes off the bike rack in front and cleaned them. Day after that she was cleaning the tow vehicle, a suburban.... cleaned the inside then wiped the entire outside down, then did the windows, mud flaps (both sides), the tires and wheel and last noticed before they left, she was cleaning the inside of the wheel wells. Was going to ask her if interested in doing our unit but they left early the next morning.

It was parked in front of a home just down the street from our campground. Been by every few days and haven’t seen anyone to visit.

ependydad, are you sure that wasn't an 'un-welcome' mat you were waving?

Somewhere in the forums is a thread about a crazy guy running around the park growling, I’m thinking.

If it don't play the "King of the Hill" theme song, then they missed one hell of an opportunity...
