How many spigots were there for power washers at the campground?

I was kinda wondering if we should have more power washers this year.

I was thinking I'd try to dig mine out and make sure it still works. But I'm kinda behind the 8 ball as is...

FYI:

Actually things may have changed a bit. In the spring Diane was temporairly housing campers in the big open field we used to use to park trailers. Those trailers were suppose to be relocated to the 'Field' (I.E. new additional campsites at the north end of the property where WR is at). I'm not sure if they returned that area to open parking or left it as campsites.
When they did that, we were left with only one water spigot and a relatively small area for washing. So one PW was all we had room for.
I suspect we may need 2 to get the trucks cleaned in a reasonable amount of time. I say bring it and we'll figure it out when we get there but be prepared to have a bit of a line up for cleaning.
Note: please don't do any cleaning of your vehicles on your campsite. The reasons should be obvious. Diane and Ernst have always provided us with a place to clean off and we don't want to get them mad at us now.

Isn't there a quarter wash just as you are coming into town?

It's nice to have multiple power washers to save wear and tear.

There is until you get you &^% handed to you for muddying up the bay. There have been many stories of peope getting kicked out because they were so dirty and clogged up the drain system.

The sadness of not being able to go is kicking it. I'm going to delete this thread.

Please don't delete it, just hitch a ride with Indy and Sara.

On another note, for those arriving Thursday, I expect to get out Thursday mid morning for a bit of exploring. No times or promises at the moment, just letting you know. It will be a lame, boring ride through the woods.

I'm still up in the air about Wednesday or Thursday getting up there.

I'd kinda like to get up there a day early and relax a bit and just check out the area more. But I'd also like to have the extra day to button up some loose ends.

2 choices
Stay home & polish it.
Go to Canada & get in the woods.

Dumb if you choose option #1.

I am very much looking forward to this! However I am keeping my fingers crossed I can make it. For the last couple of days I have been rapidly loosing sight in my left eye and this morning at the opthamologists office I found I have a condition that may require immediate medical attention. I am seeing a retinal specialist Monday morning, so fingers crossed!

You really only need one eye to go wheeling anyways

And no, the irony of only being able to see out of one eye on national talk like a pirate day is not lost on me

It feels totally fine, but due to a fluid buildup behind the retina I have no central vision and it is like looking through an old wavy glass.........filled with gasoline.

I am so looking forward to this.
I almost didn't make the trip due to breaking at the badlands last weekend. Good thing I have friends here in IN that had some extra D44 trac loc spider gears. I priced them at the Stealership for a whopping $659....WOW. Tricky little buggers to install.

I will be the helping last rig on Timbercruiser's trail runs.
33's, front locker, CB, trac loc rear and hopefully a working winch by then.

Send Kerry a PM. She's had retina problems in the past and has found a very good retinologist that has done her last couple surgeries.
