Left camp and drove southwest on SR 9336, to Flamingo… 34 miles. Took an electric site for a couple nights in order to re-charge. I can go about a week before running the generator. My little solar panel (55w) just barely keeps up if we use as little juice as possible (headlamps for reading! Spent some time in the sun… then in the shade … reading… hiked several trails. Canoed Nine Mile Pond again. It's always a great experience. Donna hurt her back and had to rest up for several days while we were here.
I have a major problem with the way the reservation system is run in this campground. After about a week, they refuse to let you stay except on a day-by-day basis! So you have to go up every day before noon and find out if you can stay another day… and it's never full! How stupid! SAME EXACT thing happened last year! We've been to about 200 campgrounds across the county and this is the ONLY place I've ever seen anything like this. Goat Rodeo.
