Oh, I didn't read carefully, I thought you were already at Catherine's Landing... I read "pulled up the Catherine's Landing website" as "pulled up to Catherine's Landing" d'oh!

Another option, when on the road, is a Blue Beacon truck wash. I haven't tried this personally... I'm afraid they might wash some paint off my Argosy! I stick to a very gentle hand-wash for the Argosy so I can put off a paint job as long as possible. Their website says pickup+travel trailer is $38.50, just the travel trailer is $24.50. (It's not a mechanized wash, but I'm still paranoid about the Argosy considering the amount of paint that ends up in the wash bucket when I wash it by hand.)

We have gone to blue beacon and were pretty happy with the result. They have a brightener I didn't do. They said it would etch polished aluminum. And a side note. If the cleaning service is scheduled by anyone can they please make the appointment for the afternoon. Not everyone is an early bird!

Yeah, that gasoline-fired power washer is a noisy beast!

We are on site. Park looks great. Weather is fine. Enjoying cocktails under the awning.

Hot Springs is here, wish you were beautiful.

I envy you!!

Could you do me a favor and do some scouting? I was curious if the pavilion where we are going to do the Thursday night soiree has electric outlets (to plug in speakers and Ipod; Gas grills ( I think someone mentioned them in a previous post), and how far is it from the sites (for logistics to get stuff from trailer/truck).

Thanks!!

Short walk to pavilion. A pickup works will for setting up. There is parking there. I sat up karaoke last year and power was fine. I have a few cords and power strip. No worries.

We can't wait! Packing up tomorrow and hitting the road early Thursday! We closed on a new home last Wednesday and for a desperate moment we thought about cancelling when we came up with our to-do list... sure glad we didn't!
Safe travels, new friends!
Jeff and Rick
