Well, today was overcast - quite unlike the gorgeous day we had yesterday. We designated today and tomorrow as "work days" so we could get a lot done and play when the weather improves.
It was a little chilly this morning for our workouts, but it wasn't as cold as the last two mornings. Still, it stayed cool in the rig most of the day, so we kept the furnace on and an electric heater running.
Jogging around the camping loops here at Lake Powhatan Recreation Area, I realized I forgot to mention a couple of things yesterday.
First, 50% of the sites here are non-reservable, first come, first served sites. That includes half of the full hook-up Lakeside Loop sites. Right now, everything is walk-in only. Reservations don't start until May 15.
The other three loops have a couple of sites with full hook-ups for camphosts. Some of those are vacant now, and they are looking for camphosts. In fact, while we were checking in, I was talking to the Asst. Manager, and he asked us if we wanted to volunteer. :)
This campground, three others in the area, and more in North Carolina, Georgia, Indiana, and Virginia are managed by the Cradle of Forestry. Each time we've been to one of their campgrounds, we've been asked if we wanted to host.
If we didn't have so many other things going on, we'd consider it. It's a great campground, we're only about five miles from a grocery, about three miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway, about ten miles from the Biltmore Estate, and about eleven miles from downtown Asheville. And the hiking opportunities are almost endless in the area.
So, people ask us all the time "Is it hard to find workamping positions?" Our response is "nope". We've been offered quite a few opportunities just by showing up and mentioning we're full-timers.
Back at the rig, I wanted to get the Journal entry done. But our Journal host, Typepad, was down most of the day due to a "denial of service attack". But they did a great job of posting updates, and had us back up in the afternoon.
Linda worked on the upcoming Rally agenda. We switched a few things around on the seminar schedule.
Later, the rains we were expecting came.
Not much else to tell. Linda improvised a baked chicken dinner and we sort of watched TV while continuing to get some things done.
Tomorrow, it's supposed to rain all day, so we'll probably just hang out in the rig.
Oh, before I sign off, a little reminder. This Saturday and Sunday April, 19 & 20, are National Park Free Entrance Days. So, if you're near a National Park and don't already have a park pass, this weekend is free. :)
Well, at least the rain should help our waterfall tour in the next few days. :)
