We made it up to our site and Clark started to get us "hooked-up" when he realized that there was no sewage hook-up, only a gray water hookup (RV term for sink & shower water)
In the midst of all this, the kids had found out that they have a large pond. They also found out that the store had all the equipment including a pole to purchase so they could go fishing. With great negotiating, the kids convinced the parents to let them buy their own equipment, so we could take them fishing. So after Clark got the "hook-up" taken care of, he went down to the store with the kids to make sure they were getting all the necessary things for fishing including bait, etc. Rusty paid with CASH of course and they came to pick up Ellen.
So, this was the kids first time fishing on this trip. Clark taught them how to string the rod, tie on the lure, cast and reel in. The kids were both attentive and took turns at casting out into the water and reeling it back in full of seaweed. They only bought one pole and a fake night crawler. Rusty became wide-eyed when the boy fishing next to them caught a fish or two. He knew there were fish to be caught and he was determined to do it! But dinner time came before he had a chance to catch his first fish. He set his sights on tomorrow.
After dinner we made a campfire with the wood we were required to buy from them with CASH. It did burn much nicer than the wood the night before. The other rules are; the fire must be put out by 10pm with water, No paper or trash is allowed in the fire, No objects other than firewood are allowed in the fire, Oh and no TV or Radios are allowed on inside your RV after 10pm. We felt like we had entered into the Twilight Zone of The Convent RV Campground.
