Bald Ridge Campground #54

First camping of 2010. Organized, cleaned and repaired. Patched two hold on the driver side front roof of camper due to CradlePoint installation. Oops.

Some campsite had timbers removed and concrete poured. #54 had this recently. New gravel in pad too.

Brought kids’ bikes on the trip. Found the only way to load three bikes at one time. Matt’s in the middle, upside down without his seat.

Weather was good. Cold and rainy one day though.

Unloaded and set up by myself. Packed and broke down by myself too.

Needed a black bag to hold the rug.

Replenished supplies, etc.

Bought wood from the guy right outside the park. $$$ goes to his kids’ college fund.

Verizon wireless was terrible for Internet! Read More

Rented site #18. Good site, but not much privacy. Thankfully there were not a lot of people there in the middle of the week. It was almost like having the entire park to ourselves!

We spent Saturday and Sunday in Augusta for Counts’ and Tori’s birthday. It was like two camping trips!

We met Kelly, Mike and Kelly’s parents there. By chance they were camped right next to us. Good food & fun, just too little time with them. They left on Tuesday.

Rikki had to work Tuesday and Wednesday, and it rained most of the week. That was a drag, but it was very relaxing.

We also had the Meadow’s over for an evening & the kids camped overnight with us. Fun!

Also, Derek, Matt and Marty oared a dock float around the tip of the island. That was a lot of work.

We also had some aggressive squirrels eat INTO our bins. Note to self: Keep bread locked in the back of the truck!

After the trip, Rikki and I organized the entire camper. Vito had lots of extras (and junk!). Now we feel like it’s finally our camper! Read More

Good site. BIG spot next to swings, field and bathroom. Across from lake.

Marty was sick on Thursday night but slowly got better on Friday.

Brantley Smallwood & Cason Sturdevant stayed with us. Sarah spent the night at the Sturdevant’s on Friday and Deb Marciniac’s on Saturday.

We set up a big tent for the boys.

Good weather although it stormed on Sunday and Sunday night. Marty dried the screens and vinyl by hand.

Used the bathroom for the first time. Clean up needed badly.

Marty did major organizing & cleaning on Monday. Broke down the site all by himself.

Installed the CradlePoint with Internet via a Verizon USB card. AWESOME! Read More

Camper top collapsed on Friday. Ouch!

Fixed on Saturday by PECO in Tucker. Julian rocks!

Titled camper back and to the left to drain AC properly. Gotta fix that!

Outlets didn’t work. Called Vito to help. He didn’t know what to do. I reset the inverter by removing power, including battery, for about 5 minutes.

Water pump works sporadically.

Broke down the camper all by myself! Read More
