We got up late this morning because we had a kind of bad night.  The temperature got down to freezing and we lost our power.  I need my heated mattress pad!!!!  Come to find out 30 of us lost power.  A park breaker popped.  I guess we were all using our electric heaters at once.

Our trip here Rog towed the kayak trailer and I drove the car.  It was a nice quiet trip until we arrived at the entrance to the park.  Those poor people involved in the accident.  


This is the entrance to the rv park.   There was one lane for us to come into the park.  The police had two lanes of traffic on the main road blocked and we had to go into the left turn lane or U turn lane to get around the accident.  The left side and back end of the RV was very badly damaged too, but you can not see at this angle.  I did not get many pix because we were trying to check in and get our rig out of the way of other incoming RVs

This park has about 400 spaces and about 200 of them our full hookups.  The others have electric and water only.  When you come into this park during peak season there is a special "RV dance" that you must go through in order to get a full hookup site.  First you check in, find a temporary place in the electric water sites (over flow site) to park your rig, and your name is placed on a lottery.  All the available sewer sites for that day are listed on the board by noon.  At that time you make a list of the sites, go look at them and then at 1:00 each day the sewer sites are picked.  The names are read from the list in the order they arrived in the park.  When your name is called you select from the remaining sites that are available on the board.   
We are heading out early in the morning to take the RV in for a 50,000 mile checkup, wheels alined, and Rog is tried of looking at that sticker covering the ABS light on the dash lol.   We are deciding if we even want to get in the lottery for a sewer site or not.  We my just stay down here and dump the tanks

We also got an "important notification"  Our water system was recently outside of drinking water standards.  Although this is not an emergency.  "We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants.  On Jan. 11, 2013, we received a notice that as of the sample collected on Nov. 2012 our system exceeds the standard, or maxinum contaminant level (MCL) for Combined Radium-226 & 228.  The standard for the contaminant is 5 pCi/L.  Our average level of the contaminant over the last year has been 5.1 pCi/L. "  What to do, well what we got out of it is hold your nose and drink.  LOL  Not anything can be done my use to get rid of it.
