It Worked Out

I had planned on camping on FR 328, but I had also planned on arriving much earlier than I did! I passed by Bedrock City (old Flinstone theme park) and felt there was no option but to go in. I wasn’t too worried as it was a Sunday evening, but upon arriving at 328 it was completely full! I then went to 302, which was also full.

I was now in a position where the sun was setting, I didn’t know where to sleep, everyone had also decided to camp on a Sunday night, and I was in a panic. I was slowly driving trying to spot any forest road I recognized and ended up here. There weren’t many spots but luckily I made myself fit into one.

The spots weren’t too big and the trees seemed rather sparse despite also appearing less trafficked. It was fairly loud throughout the evening with the airport nearby and the wide range of animal noises I was shocked to hear so close. There was howling on and off (mostly on) throughout the night and a few audible periods of leaves and branches cracking under the paths of animals I was too scared to identify.

The area I chose had a small fire pit and backed up to some rugged forest behind a hill. It felt private enough and safe enough to avoid driving through the night and I was able to get situated before it was dark. Overall I would not choose to stay here again unless it was the only option. There are worse things, but there are also much better things!
