Pat, I'm going to echo what Cathy says.

KOA in the area we are in is $40, and weekends $50, which is not uncommon before their discount, so we never use them. Our PA gave us half price at places that were mostly $30 to begin with, so $15. We are using the senior pass at ACE most of the time, often $10 but only $6 off-season.
We've also found also that it depends where you go, and there are alot of restrictions on which days are available for the discount. But, the 50% off is nice when you're in the right place at the right time.

Good Sam, AARP, AAA, should all receive a 10% discount. My PA membership seemed too restrictive to both time of year as well as time of week. If you travel off season and Tues thru Thursday it it worth it, otherwise save your $$.

Best deal is the $10 lifetime senior pass for national parks. Covers over 2000 parks and just about all corps of engineer parks accept it for 1/2 off camping. Really good if ur retired and travel off season. Of course, gotta be 62 to get this one, but I'm getting close.

Same suggestion for any others who might be heading our way…Glenn.

Glenn hit a home run in recommending Ponderosa SP. We're camped in the Aspen loop just a short walk to the lakeshore. Very beautiful campground. Just as we were setting up, Glenn came by to say hello. Really nice fellow.

San Antonio to Canada - Part Deaux

For Memorial Day

With a special thanks to Lt. Col John McRae, of the Canadian Army, who wrote it:

In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
