The final leg of this summer's trip is to be a stop over in NC at Four Paws Kingdom campground a campground dedicated to dogs and their humans who happen to drive them around, lookout for their welfare and pick up their poop, amongst other things. The reason I found this particular campground was because of a Tin Can Tourist rally, a rally for vintage RVs which I signed up for. The CG has just 40 sites all with full hook up, super clean rest rooms and showers and 8 off leash dog parks, 2 for agility work, 1 with a pond, 1 with a creek, a small dog park and a big dog park and a few other free run. The CG is run by Lucy and Belle and their humans and a few workampers. On Saturday night they had a German October Fest party, beer, wine, food and fun. One game was to push a tennis ball up your partner's one pant leg and down the other as fast a you can. This was a fun game to watch. Another was a nail driving contest and a pretzel fishing match. I participated and won the pretzel fishing. Would have rather have Cindy push a tennis ball in my pants. The dogs that afternoon got to do wiener fishing aka sausage bobbing and Luna won the small dog heat, chow hound that she is.
The Tin Can Tourist rally featured many restored and original trailers and 1 bus. Cool to see the pain staking work that went into some of these units. Too many to post pics of them all but check out the few here. Of course many were decorated in their period but I didn't decorate ours being i could not think of anything remarkable from 1995 that i brought with us or could have bought. Anyway 95 isn't considered "vintage"
Now we're home and playing catch up on bills, weeds, shopping and the like. While we were away lightning struck the big live oak west of our house and blew the circuits in the office along with Deb's computers. I checked the breakers but the receptacles in that room are still dead. The lightning blew off not only bark from the tree but chunks of wood, so it must have made a hell of a boom. We did manage a side trip to Chimney Rock and Luna went all the way up and down on her little legs,2480 ft.
