Ok I'll bite since I don't know anything about this...why would you get a deadline?



They (the ranger ) said they had to many complaints about the dog barking,

THE ONLY time he barked was when people were walking down the road.

They wouldn't elaborate any more than that.

Leave as soon as possiable, (8am ish) or face a big fine....

So before noon I asked if that would work.

Hence the deadline. .Packing wet stuff and all.

Sorry to hear about that. We have a barker too - so she didn't get to come along.

Perhaps I can get the ranger to send me a picture of Mr Tinsdale III, Esq. so we know who he is.
:thumbsup:

Kenneth it was great to meet you and Marlo. Michelle really fell in love with Marlo. For a while I wondered if we were going to have a case of dognapping!

Take Care!

Hi All,
Gary and I just want to say thanks you again to everyone for extending a welcome to us and giving us tours your homes on wheels.

The one aspect of the teardrop trailers that I did not expect is the enthusiasm of the trailer owner. As we looked at each one, both homemade and manufactured your enthusiasm just shined. We learned a lot. Hopefully we will be camping with you guys next year.

Bob, Belle, Watson and I had a great time! :thumbsup: Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, and it was nice to get a chance to see many different kinds of teardrops up close. Thanks to everyone who let us look at and ask questions about their teardrops, neat ideas and décor.

If the weather hadn't been so cool, windy and occasionally rainy, we would have liked to explore more of the park. We did attempt the cordwalk north of the campground and, were going to walk the dog part of the beach, but it was way too windy/cold for me. We both enjoyed the Marsh boardwalk. Bob took the dogs on a hike later that day.
Some photos of the dunes/cordwalk:

We liked the campground and the facilities. I bet they're really lovely once everything is leafed out and green. Saw quite a few deer each time we passed by the ranger station.
