We’ve been at this rv park for 3 months now…long enough to conclude that there’s just way too much going on around us! I’m not saying I wanna be out in the woods somewhere cut off from civilization (I’d worry about bear activity, and I must be near a $ Store!), but this set-up is too overwhelming for me…I’m praying a calmer environment awaits us in Texas.
Things did quiet down last month when several groups of kids left to start school, but there are still (unsupervised) kids here…maybe they’re homeschooled. And the loud work trucks that recently moved on to the next job site are regularly replaced by more trucks…I guess the local construction projects are into the next phase and now require a different type of skilled help (welders, electricians, plumbers, etc).
If there was another site here, where less kids and vehicles pass by, I might consider moving our camper to it, but there’s no location I like….besides, I’m ready to go back to Texas. Actually, there is one other site in the park that I like, but the daughter of the owners lives there, so wouldn’t happen anyway. One nice thing about her site is that it doesn’t have a well lit, action ’til 10 pm, basketball court nearby. I’ve come to hate the sound of bouncing balls as people walk to and from the court (could ya just hold the dadgum thing until ya get there?!), and then of course while they’re playing the game! Yeah, I sure didn’t think about that (or any of this stuff) when I said we have “the best seat in the house.”
And while I appreciate the park grounds being maintained, I’ve decided that a view of a less manicured landscape would be just fine with me…and I’m assuming a lot quieter. With appx. 100 sites here, there are mowers, weed eaters, edgers, leaf blowers, pressure washers, and employee golf carts, everywhere…yesterday was especially loud! Thankfully most of that equipment, except the golf carts, are only brought out once or twice a week, but those day-long activities somehow seem more often than that. So even if we changed sites, those obnoxious noises would follow us.
I’m glad we began our fulltime camper life in a brand new and beautiful rv park though, because if we’d started in a less pleasing to the eye locale, I might have thought I wanted to be somewhere “bigger and nicer”…while not considering the hustle and bustle and noise! Now if we can just find a small rv park with minimal grass, that doesn’t allow kids and loud trucks…or win the lottery and buy a perfect piece of property.
PS-Would someone please oil that squeaky wheel on the baby stroller that’s pushed by our site every night?!
