Arrival was smooth and simple and Becky picked up the golf cart we rented while I drove back to the site at the far end of the campground. Having a site upfront is nice since it is close to the activities, but with the hills and distance combined when in the back of the campground it is definitely nice to have the golf cart. We also were camping with friends that we met last time we were here who have their granddaughter with them, so lots of running with the kids to activities and pool and back to the camper!
Every site we have arrived at I always test the shore power pedestal to see what I have voltage and plug type wise, and after reading the RV No Shock Zone by Mike Sokol, I've learned a lot about my 120V and 12V systems. When we purchased this RV, we also purchased a Progressive Industries Surge/Voltage protector. This time, it kept telling us there was an open ground at the plug. The plug was also loose, so I made a call to the front desk. After some back and forth discussion, the maintenance guy reluctantly opened up the box to check it out. The box was not bonded, so he did that, and also tightened up the outlet and checked the ground. Satisfied, we plugged in and were back in business shortly after my tester reset. This device has now saved us twice in the past two years.
This trip we are also camping next to friends that we met our last time here which is a lot of fun for the kids as they have another person to play with. They rode bikes, when on walks, lots of swimming, and more!
There were many fun activities that Lake In Wood offered too this weekend to keep us all busy. We did ceramics again this year so I was able to paint another Gnome for our campground sign and the kids each did a small ceramic. Then, we went out and did the Gnome Scavenger hunt that they have at the campground which was a lot of fun for us all. We rode the golf cart around to find the clues and solve the riddles and earn great little prizes for the kids. Free Mini-Golf, Ice cream coupons, and more.
