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