Other Rallies I've Attended
The owners of the Broken Wheel Campground had a family emergency, and were never at the campground, but we found a note on our trailer doors asking if we could leave either cash or a check on the porch. If not, no problem, don't worry about it and we will see you next year. I checked on line, and the price went up $.50, so it was $33.00 for the night. A very family oriented campground. I met a couple from Florida that is a 4th generation camper at the campground.
We headed out around 10:00, and followed Anne's directions with just a bit of assistance from Matilda, the GPS. I don't know if Anne renamed the GPS I gave her or not, but mine didn't complain too much when we ignored her suggested turns. As usual, I left the navigation up to Anne since it is far easier for her to check maps, etc while Don is driving. We did have the longest construction stop I've ever had on US 2; about 45 minutes.
We made a stop at our usual Hannaford grocery store for supplies. As I was trying to fit the truck & trailer into a double parking spot a lady pulled in next to me wedging me in place with the back of the trailer still hanging into the handicapped spot. I did some quick shopping, then headed out to try to move the truck & trailer without ripping off her mirrors (although it was tempting). Having lived with my wife Carol for 4 years of needing handicapped parking, I hate to block any part of one of the spaces.
We arrived at the campground around 3:45, and set up in our "Deluxe Pond Sites". It is a nice site, with a wood deck, glass table with 4 comfortable chairs, a propane grill & a zero gravity chair, but I had to use some boards (provided by the campground) to level the trailer, and use my extra hose & 30 amp cord to do the hookups. While the site has a sewer connection, I can't reach it with my 20' hose. $50.00 per night for a site that usually sells for around $75.00 - we get a discount based on the number of fiberglass trailers attending the rally. A minor problem is I'm in site 40 while Don & Anne are in 48. A bit of a haul to bring dinner stuff between the sites. They give first preference to those individuals that had the site the previous year, and the sites on either side of Don & Anne's both came back this year. We will try for adjacent sites next year.

Again, both sites are very nice, however we would prefer to be a bit closer.
Dinner was Bubba Burgers cooked on my new grill, a salad (that had a new meaning to iceberg lettuce (stored a bit too close to the freezer in Don & Anne's refrigerator) and fruit cocktail.
