Photos: BIG Redwood, LITTLE Park!

Here are a few photos of us pulling our new baby into this very heavily forested park. The park is gorgeous, 80 acres of old growth timber and we are the only inhabitants, except for the occasional day-use visitors. It's a dream-job, really, we are so lucky. 50 amp, private septic system and high speed internet and clean wonderful water from a deep well.

I DID lose several lives getting in here though. We had to drive the entire loop of the park in order to make the turn up to the park host site. The rains only recently stopped around these parts and the shoulder on each side was like chocolate milkshake... with a huge tree for the RW to lean into if we strayed off the road AT ALL. I am not kidding, it was interesting.

I will probably add more later, but for now (there are probably some of me crying or praying alternately), here is a link to the album http://www.redwoodowners.com/forums/...php?albumid=40
Enjoy! ~theresa

I would have to put ours in there by myself. My wife has enough heart attacks going down a highway next to a semi.

One of the very few negatives of Redwood ownership that we've found is that we have had to avoid a couple of the provincial parks here in northern Ontario.

The Redwood's height combined with the desire of the parks not to trim or remove trees make a lot of the parks "no go" for us. I learned the lesson last spring when I put the first minor scratch in one of the decals on the side of the brand new trailer. It's like the experience of getting the first shopping center mark in a door of a new car!

Had our first of those "oh no" tight spot moments last summer at Oconee State Park in South Carolina... Ruth's desire to have a site on the lake, and my trying to please her put us on a poorly graveled, well trenched by runoff loop road built in the days before BIG rigs, tight turns, narrow road and way too small sites. But for slow moving, backing, and Devine intervention we made it around the loop without a scratch on the truck or rig.

I now walk before trying to take the rig down those ever enticing pig trails with the "perfect" sites!!!

My wife has that driving beside a semi phobia also. That spot was worth it. Do you have a weed wacker in your tool box? Don't let them see you use it. They will expect you to trim the whole 80 acres. We are going to be in Washington early spring; maybe we can visit. Dw and I have a Red Hat Society convention to vend at in May in the Seattle area.

Jay and Rhonda; Sure! stop by if you get a chance! And no, we do not have a weed whacker but they are bringing us one. That's ok, we are just going to keep the brush away from the short road through this small developed area of the park. It's optional, we don't have to. Yes, the spot seems worth it but I'll let you know after we try and GET OUT of here! Hopefully it won't be so hair raising. We'll be going on our first "trip" in July, and am really looking forward to that.
