Campground For Sure!

We had to drive 150 miles to TTN Chesapeake Park. We had no set departure time and left about 9:30AM.  Our “Check Engine” light didn’t even come on when we fired up that 360 HP Cummins.  The skinny boats were on the Mariner (car) and tied down tight.  We headed south on route 13 for the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.  Carol had the Nikon in hand and wasn’t afraid to use it. She took 88 pictures of a bridge.  I saved you all the agony of looking at them all.

Here’s where they got my $28 bucks!DSC_0001 DSC_0008 DSC_0017 DSC_0024 DSC_0039 DSC_0046

We did and they did……….DSC_0066


This is a camper’s campground.  Everybody had a pull behind trailer, golf cart, boat, dog, fire rings, outside frig, towels hanging and 2.2 kids with bikes.DSC_0088 DSC_0087 DSC_0084   

We all do this, well almost all.  I haven’t met everybody yet.DSC_0086

Somebody gets the best sight.  Sometimes it us but not this time and that’s really OK.  Our turn is coming.DSC_0082

The temp hit 93 degrees and our AC couldn’t get it below 85 in the rig.  We only have 30 AMP FHU and can’t run both ACs.  Tomorrow it’s suppose to hit 100 degrees.  Maybe we should be in Livingston, TX.

Towards 8PM our neighbors left.  They had a better sight and more important they had 50AMP.  We moved in. We have to pay $3 bucks a day for the 50 but it’s worth it with temps predicted to hit 100 degrees tomorrow.  Our old site had a poor 30AMP.  Poor meaning we had only about 105-7 volts with a power booster on.  That’s poor.  This Farton needs both ACs running when it gets into the 90s.  Otherwise we can manage with 30 AMP.  We got inside monitors that tell us our voltage and AMPs on all incoming lines and how much we are pulling from them.  The hard part is looking at them – duh….

We moved…..

Wait till tomorrow and I got some outstanding pictures of a car that you won’t forget EVER!

See Ya……….
