The one thing that we haven’t liked about our stay here in this campground was thinking about the day we have to pull out. After we got into our site, we realized that pulling out would be a challenge as we had to make a pretty sharp left turn and there was a light pole right on the corner.
We’ve gone back and forth discussing our plan of attack for departure day, but neither of us liked either of our options.
This morning, we were watching a toy hauler that was in the site across the street. It also had a light pole on the left corner and we watched to see what they did. What they did was back straight up into the site next to us, and then came out and headed down our street.
That got me thinking…what if we did the same thing? This picture is taken from our “old” site – you can see the empty one across and to the right.
To add to the challenge, the weather was looking a little on the stormy side. The possibility of solving our light pole issue was worth it though. We headed over to the office, explained the issue, and asked them whether we could move over one site.
They gave us the go ahead so we came back to the fiver and got busy packing up. It probably took about an hour, or maybe a little more.
Here we are in our new site, at the right of the picture. We pulled forward into that empty site, into the spot across the way, lined up and backed into our new spot.
We are very happy to be settled again. And NO light pole to our left, so now departure day will be much less stressful.
And we got everything outside set up just in time!
