Getting old

We are underway again for another family event and rally.  Our first stop was at the Peach Queen RV Park in Jemison, AL.  This is our second visit in as many months.  It is a full hookup park with WIFI very close to the interstate. While it is a good place to stop along I65, the reason for this stop was not so much for convenience as fixing an error on my part from last time we were here.
 
When we checked in the first time, the staff asked for our cell phone number, so they could call us should we leave something behind when we leave.  We thought this was a bit odd and certainly no other campground had asked us this before.  I have never left anything behind except a water splitter connection or two. When we left the first time, we remarked about how rough the ground was at the site when we departed.  Just like this trip it was raining hard then too.  We seemed to hit two large humps as we drove out of the campsite.  The next day the campground called and said they had found one of our leveling ramps on the site.  So the bumps were my driving off the front of the ramp with the front tire and then running over it again with the rear.  Embarrassing is the best way to put it.  But they still had it on our return.






Our second stop on our journey north was the Sweetwater Creek ACOE campground near Cartersville, GA.  This was a nice spot with a nearly empty campground due to the awful weather.  The gate attendant indicated that almost all of the campers had left and those with reservations had cancelled.  So, for the second time within a month we found ourselves in a nearly deserted spot.  This did allow us to pick what we thought was the nicest site in the park on the waterfront.  It actually stopped raining long enough for us to get a few walks in around the park.

At least you didn't leave Anneke behind. ;)

sometimes the bad weather days are the best! My only beef with rain are 12 muddy paws.

I had to chuckle as I pictured you driving over your leveling blocks in you hurry to depart. Ooops.

How nice that the Park calls folks who leave things behind.

I know someone who pulled out of his site (not mentioning any names) without unplugging the power cord... ;c)

That was certainly nice to get that call I bet.

I loved the photos of your site right on the water.

Isn't it nice these campgrounds have appointed themselves "guardians" for us old folks? :) :) :)
Sure glad they saved those blocks for you.

Left a y adapter or two but never drove over ramps, because we don't have them :-)

Well if you have to have rain in a campground then having it all to yourself is the best way I can think of. We've left some things too, like my keys and the dolly lock attached to them at our last stop in Florida this year. Can't run over our leveling blocks since we have jacks thankfully. But we have run over chocks and flattened them.

We love COE parks. They are always so pretty and clean.

That was so nice of them to keep your ramp. We have been known to leave items behind but no one ever called.

Beautiful photos, and kudos on your photos of the blue heron. They are so elusive and very still, like statues, not easy even seeing them let alone photographing them. :)
