Visiting David

 While waiting for the top coat to go down on our road I decided to pay a visit to my brother.  The road desperately needed repaving; lots of pot holes, broken edges, etc.  They ran a scraper down both sides of the road to provide a couple of feet of space, which destroyed many lawns and one driveway drain.   No problems at my house other than putting a 4" drop to the road.  Maybe the new surface will even it up.  Both Kyle & I have white cars as well as the white trailer - we will be scrubbing tar for days!

The Base Coat

It is a much shorter and cheaper drive to visit with my brother now that he has moved to the Catskills in NY.  Actually, I'm not at Dave's yet; arrived at the Nickerson Catskill Mountain Campground around 3:00 at 209.4 miles from Oswego.  The trip to Nantucket was a 400 mile drive & a 2 1/2 hour $525.00 ferry ride.

I booked site 622, a water & electric site for $63.00 per night for 2 nights.  At the office I asked if there was anything available closer to a shower & bathroom & she moved me to a full hookup site #594.  For some reason she couldn't get my card to add the price difference, so I'm still paying $63.00 instead of $75.00.  The site is very shady (at least the trailer) on grass & dirt with a fire ring & picnic table, not all that level (1 1/2" left to right & down 4.5" at the tongue.  Since I have to unhook to drive to Dave's tomorrow, the out of level isn't a problem. 

With a pair of MiMo antennas, Verizon is showing 107.5MBPS down & 10.7Mbps up.  AT&T shows 34.4Mbps down & 10Mbps up. 

There is a large pool that would be great for laps, but they divided the deep & shallow ends in the middle with a set of floats so no laps.

Site 594
After setting up the trailer I made a late lunch (turkey sandwich) then sat outside and read.  77°F inside & out - not quite hot enough to fire up the AC so the Max fan is creating a comfortable breeze & keeping the trailer cool.

Around 5:00 I broke down and fired up the AC.  The sun was hitting the side of the trailer & it was up to 82°F inside.  Now a cool 72°F inside & still 77°F in the shade.

Dinner was a microwaved InnovAsian Orange Chicken bowl.
