Electricity, yes. Water it is near by. With the group we have there is enough hose to fill your tank for just about any site.
Though your fridge may get emptied in the process.

Hopefully the weather will be better for our fall rally. Today the weather is miserable.Might need to think of a warm desert. Our basement took more water last night.Union which is near by had 2 inches of rain.

At my age you will have to forgive me. I forgot but assume there is a dump station.

Yes, there is a dump station. One funny note, it costs more to just use the dump station than to camp for a night and use the dump station.

Since I purchased a Flush King, I relaize how important it is not only to dump but to really flush the system several times. I think I must be paranoid but I could not beleive that it took about 7 uses of the Flush King to really clean the tank. Thanks for the info and we are looking forward to attending.

whats so great about camping??

Hi everyone!

I haven't checked this thread a for quite awhile.. I've been having terrible problems!

We were camping at Pec a MONTH ago, and when we were leaving, at the dump station, washing down, I left the truck door open an inch. Dephne saw a squirrel and raced off into the brambles after it.

Me, being the IDIOT that I AM, flung myself in after her.. for those of you that don't know, she's our deaf Jack Russell and I had visions of her racing out of sight and not being able to find her way back to us.

Needless to say, she was fine, Dilly (the other dog) brought her back, as usual, and I emerged with Poison Oak.

I've been to the doctor twice and am on my THIRD round of steroids.. a shot, pills and now cream. It started to leave and re-emerged as a huge allergic reaction.

I am NOT a happy camper.

Been there, had it head to foot. My doctor ordered up a special calamine like concoction (the pharmist had to mix it with a motar and pestal) that cured it in a short period of time. He said that one should Never use creams or salves. Hope that it clears up soon.

Boy, and I thought the mosquitos were bad after 19 inches of rain. Sorry to hear that you are itchier than I am. Finally starting to dry out. Will be working on the trailer and truck this week.
Do we still have the Hawaiian theme? Sue's luau was a great success and she has party supplies galore. Let us know if we are still going Hawaiian.

Tom and Sue
