Peace and quiet

Nice USFF Lakeside campground

Just a quick update to P.S.'s excellent review below as regards cell service.  Since last night when we setup in site #1, we have maintained 3 bars of Verizon service.  So, either a new tower, or perhaps just a different provider.  :)

(Not a lot of water in the lake right now though!)

  • From the banks of  the much diminished Trinity Lake. About 100 ft or so below our camp site.
  • Site #1.   Full hookup, but not using the 30 Amp, because our surge protector  shows  open ground  error. 20 amp is fine. Water stand pipe has a nasty leak, and we never drain straight to sewer.
