There's frost on the pumpkin (figuratively) in Troy Alabama too. Deer Run RV park is less than about 3 hours away.

As a side note, don't use site 54 here. The 30 amp receptacle is wired backwards (wrong), and our skin had 120 volts on it. The ground is also somehow screwed up to allow 120 on the skin. I started to hook up the cable and generated a nasty arc when I brushed the wire from the trailer on the park stand. I gave up thinking that my not-connected-to-any-TV must have gotten skinned in the wall and had somehow hit a hot wire. Not until Gus (our Basset) tried to enter the trailer and jumped back yelping (twice, ...he's a very trusting dog) that I got my voltmeter out. I confirmed that from the wet ground to the skin I had 120 volts! I unplugged the trailer, and checked the receptacle, and found the neutral prong was hot. So, I took apart our trailer plug, reversed the white and black, then tested again. Temporarily solved. I tried to call the campground, but so far just voicemail.mi got some blue tape and a Sharpie and put Dangerous and Warning labels on the power stand.

I guess I should feel lucky that the dog didn't get electrocuted, but he's fine this morning. He might have signaled (actually knocked some sense into me so i could see) the problem before we had any other serious shocks, or worse.

When I get to Topsail, I'll have to correct the wiring in the plug, but at least for now, we have safe (relatively) power.

BOY what a party that was last night. We got to see a lot of our old friends and made a lot of new ones. Thank you everyone for showing up. Now if we only came get that much food for Saturday night. Our SOB [some other brand] will be open for open house. Stop in and take a look. Also thanks to the folks that bought the heaters. Thanks to Russ for the fire pit.

Thursday Night Social Hour

Some pictures of the opening night chili and wine tasting event at CanOpener 2013. A "chilly" night, perfect for sampling a variety of chili recipes as well as corn on the cob, assorted appetizers, and a variety of desserts. A good time to renew old friendships and make new ones.
