Different strokes for different folks. And aren't we glad. Otherwise it would be five year wait to get a new Escape trailer

First come, first serve doesn't count for this particular weekend at Maryhill. Unless you can plan to come at the last moment based one someone cancelling, the park will be full months in advance.

A running generator could easily drive me away, too - that's why there are rules for those things.

On the other hand, you won't see me leaving a campground because I have decided that others should follow exactly my decisions. I'm sure many tent campers grumble that owners of all travel trailers - including Escapes - are taking their entire house with them, and thus defeating the purpose of camping.

So, at exactly what level are we decreeing - for everyone else - what the correct or acceptable degree of camping equipment is? Will it exclude many of the more highly-equipped Escapes? Is it "camping" to travel in a 15A without air, but "not camping" to use an unnecessarily large 17B with air and a bathroom that isn't needed because there are outhouses? It's hardly camping to sit in a plastic box with air conditioning, cooking in a microwave and watching TV while updating your Facebook status and listening to music streamed over mobile internet, is it? Or maybe it is, if that's what you choose.

Not decreeing anything bro. Just not my cup of tea. To each his own.

We had to cancel out on site 36 a month or so ago. It may be open now, dunno. I think I put that up on fiberglassrv but not here, apparently.

Maryhill 2015 pictures

Maryhill 2015 was a great long weekend - Lots of new people attended and the weather was great despite all the wet forecasts...tee shirt temperatures & light winds until late Sunday night.

Norma loaded her photos to Shutterfly as usual.... I haven't gotten around to adding the captions yet (as usual).... We'll be there again the weekend before Memorial Day 2016.
