The rain has returned and so have the gouging prices.

$28 for an unpowered site at Lewis and Clark Caverns CG.

$70 for an RV site at the Three Forks KOA even though hardly anyone was here because their tent sites had no trees that would work for the hammock.

I only stopped by the Three Forks KOA today to say hello to the owner who I first met in 1991 on my very first long-distance bike tour.

When I arrived here back then, Tom had just purchased the business and was getting it ready to open for his first season.

These Trees Were Only a Few Feet Tall When I Pitched My Tent Near This Very Spot Back in 1991

I stopped by again in 2011 on my bicycle trip from Colorado to Oregon and I met Tom’s wife.

Today Tom was not here.

Apparently he sold the KOA and the new owners are only interested in making a buck rather than earning your business.

I won’t be stopping by here again.

Hope you’re enjoying your retirement, Tom!

Best wishes for big fishes!

It rained a lot today.

So I actually got soaked twice…

A Day To Get Soaked: Twice

Actually, thrice: the sprinklers went on about midnight and soaked my sleeping bag!

Fun.

On a final note, when I mentioned the midnight shower to the office host in the morning, I was informed that the sprinklers go on every night and that I should have experienced no problem sleeping in a wet sleeping bag…
