Maps Update

We have added a 2009 map and updated our maps to include more information on the campgrounds. We now have a web address where available, the number of days we stayed, the cost per day, and what discounts we used. Longer stays usually mean a weekly or monthly rate applies and, in some cases, more than one discount was used. PA is used for Passport America, GS for Good Sams which are listed in the Trailer Life Directory, and SKP for Escapees. We always look for Passport parks first, since they offer a 50% discount, though they usually have length of stay restrictions. The paragraph below is the amended previous post on our maps.

We have three maps on the blog that show our 2007/08/09 travels and the location of all the campgrounds. The sun represents where we are presently. The maps are interactive so you can move them around and if you click on view larger map, it will go to a full page google map. Clicking on a pinpoint or the list on the left will give you the campground name and address as well as other information such as what hook ups are available. FHU is full hookups (water, electric and sewer) and W, E, S is used when full hookups are not offered. Dry indicates a campground with no hookups and boondock means we were not in a campground. We have also given each park a letter grade which reflects our global opinion. A nice place that was expensive would get a lower grade while great location and scenery will trump no hook ups. We try to keep our campground expenses under $20.00 a day. You can also use the maps to get directions to the campgrounds.
