Is there a hose spicket that can be used to fill a water tank in a race car?

Good question - and I don't know.  We walked it with Mike Crawford yesterday, and he pointed out that there's a working fire hydrant - but didn't talk about a hose.  There's also a manhole covering the sewer, so dumping the RV tank will be allowed - for free.

Any chance of an electrical connection?

That site is magnificent. I drove by one afternoon and didn't see it again until the next morning. In the afternoon there may have been

a dozen vehicles. The next morning it was stuffed. Motorhomes, pickup campers, tents and it was very orderly and sanitized.

Mayor Mike came thru in Spades and it's FREE.

We must congratulate him for what he is accomplishing.

THANX MIKE.

Mayor Mike came by after the Bend got rain and talked to everyone there. From three campers the first night to over (looked like) a hundred after the rain. Thanks Mayor Mike!

We hope that it was a highlite for everyone.

What did you think of our tents?

All they needed was to be surrounded with misters.

It would drop the temp 15F for sure.

Next time...............isn't that what everyone says?
