  1. Looks like everything is fixed now.
  2. I got an email from Escapees this morning that said their IT staff is working on a fix.
  3. I'm wondering if it's just me, or if others are running into problems with the Escapees website. When I try to go to links from the RV Parking page to the Rainbow Parks section, I am getting an error page that says "There has been a critical error on your website", and the tab at the top says "Wordpress Error". Anyone else getting these errors?
  4. Be sure to check the services available for the local post office on the usps.com website. Not all branches offer general delivery service. Once you select a post office near where you will be, you can call to see if they have any "special" requirements. If they do, there is often another post office branch not much further away that can accommodate you. We've been doing general delivery for the past 5 years all over the country. Sometimes it's just easier to drive to the next small town 5 or 10 miles down the road to avoid hassles.
  5. We are in the Tampa area, and there are 2 ABC stations. One is owned by Scripps, and programming on it has been pulled. The other station's signal is still being broadcast on the Dish locals.
  6. Last summer, we booked a site at a national forest campground in the Rockies for 2 weeks. We knew there was no sewer at the campsite, but counted on using the blue tote to haul grey water to the dump station. When we got there, we discovered there was no dump station. The nearest one was at a water treatment plant on the other side of the nearest town several miles away. So, we just conserved, and did what you are planning on doing. We made it for the whole 2 weeks, and we only have a 55 gallon grey tank. You should have no problems.

    Becoming Hermits

    We're hunkered down at Sumter Oaks in Florida, where we've been wintering the last few years. Our normal routine would have us on the road cruising around the country pretty soon, but we've extended our stay here for a while. The worst thing that has occurred per my wife, is the cancellation of the weekly park dinner. That was the night she didn't have to cook, and now that opportunity is gone. "C'est la vie" I said, to which she replied "Lahvee". Hopefully this pandemic thing will resolve itself before it gets too hot down here, and we can travel to cooler climates for the summer.
  8. That company doesn't have any relation to Escapees Smartweigh.
  9. I'm here at the Bushnell park now. The smartweigh station is not closed. You do, however, have to make an appointment with the weighmaster. He is not here all the time, so he'll have to come in to weigh your rig. I don't have his number (and may not be the same guy as was here last year), but they do at the office. You can call the office at 352-793-1333.
  10. I checked with the office today. They have a very limited number of short 30 amp sites for next season available.
  11. I'm here in Sumter Oaks now. And you may already be too late to book next January if you are staying for more than a few days. Best to give them a call now, as the winter months fill up quickly.
  12. Last fall, we stayed at the Bear Creek Lake park campground, which was pretty nice. It's like being in the wilderness of the high desert, but actually right next to civilization, and close to shopping, dining, and attractions.
  13. They had a booth at the RV Supershow in Tampa, and I got an email from them last week, so it seems like they are still in operation.
