Canada Day and The 4th Of July...Get Ready!

We find ourselves in the thick of campground activity.

Yesterday was Canada Day as evidenced by all the Canadian Rigs that flowed into the campground yesterday afternoon and evening.

Today is actually the really big day for arrivals.

We found out yesterday we are completely booked now.

Yesterday we had a chance to walk around some and meet some of our new guests.

This has become, without a doubt, our most enjoyable part of being at this campground.

We have met people from all over. There are also the local folks that are seasonal here.

Yesterday we met a fascinating couple from Atlanta, Georgia who are staying here for a few days as they travel to Montreal and then to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

We simply stopped to look at the motorcycle lift on the back of their motorhome and ended up in an hour long conversation about...well...everything!

We have had a number of these types of encounters. Always interesting and always leaves us realizing just how great this part of the lifestyle is.

We are finding that the core of our type of experience in this full time lifestyle is the people.

Good or bad experiences seem to start with the people we interface with.

We will write much more on this regarding the workamping experience later.

Today is going to be VERY busy day leading into an equally busy weekend.

We have another 70 or so rigs coming in today as well as all the activities for the people already here to support.

There will be no sitting around this weekend during work hours.

Although we do have some local friends we have made that will be here. This always makes for great "around the campfire conversation" after work.

We really look forward to the visits!

We just found out that our cell phone carrier installed a new cell antenna about 500 yards from our motorhome and turned it on the other day.

We now have cell phone service!

We are sure it is because we are here that the new antenna went up.

Well we need to get ready for our workday (and night) it should be very interesting.

Just when we think we have things figured out some -- we get something new thrown at us like - working a major US and Canadian holiday at a packed campground.

Yep -- it is certainly an adventure!
