Day Thirty Eight… On the Hunt For a Good Campsite in New York… 06/17/15

IMG 2788

So here’s where I woke up folks… A Walmart in #NorwichTown,NY… I slept really well last night… I was feeling a little sluggish this morning… So, I sat down and had a couple of cups of coffee as I wrote in my blog…

#AAA also called me and assured me they are going to reimburse me as much as they can… I told the lady that I was partly responsible and didn’t mind paying a fraction but since it was the fault of their dispatchers and people who set up my account, I felt they should eat the majority… She said the investigation would take 10 days… So, that’s kind of good news… She also said the tow truck driver over charged me and that she will look into that, on top of the claim…. I knew I was overcharged… Another great example of greed… That tow truck driver knew I didn’t have a lot of money but he still put himself before me and took the most he could… People really do make me sick! I’m just glad I see the bigger picture and don’t conduct myself in such ways… Remember, behind every buck there is a person, focus on the person instead of the buck and I guarantee this world will become a better place…

Thank you Beverly from AAA… It’s so refreshing to get someone on the phone who makes me feel like I am being listened to and respected… I am confident you will come through as you stated…

You can tell its #summer folks… Look at all the squashed bugs on the front on #TheMillenniumFalcon… There was a mass slaughtering on the Highway last night… The whole front and windshield were covered… Now I find myself wishing for a little #rain to wash them off… I should watch out for what I ask for…

After going into Walmart to get some stamps, I headed over to Lowe’s where I uploaded my #blog on their awesome internet connection…. Wow, Lowe’s! Great #internet…. I felt like I was at home! I asked one of the employees why Walmart didn’t have internet and she said because it’s too much money… Really Walmart? You are the richest #Corporation out there! Trust me, get wifi, it will pay for itself just like letting #RVers use your parking lot… I would have never shopped here until I parked here, now I have to buy something so I don’t feel guilty for using you… What a sap I am…

So, after posting my blog, getting gas and calling a place to d#ump, it was time now to get refilled and dump the #Falcon… This day was getting eaten up by chores but now I have fixed the #inverter problem, I only have to get new tires for my bike… All the rest can be devoted to #exploring and #camping… Until the next problem arises… lol.

I found a great place to dump in #BowmanStatePark… and guess what? It was free! Yeah, I know… I couldn’t believe it either…. Also, to camp there for a night it only costs $17… I contemplated staying but I didn’t want to have to deal with dogs barking or screaming kids… When I get my head a little more clear then I will try to deal with such things…

This place was huge and so well put together… Everything was so well marked with new signs, you didn’t even need to look at the map to find where the #DumpingStation was… It also has 190 sites! 190! Wow! I have to come back here… Maybe the next dump I will come back and stay if I’m not too far away… I am so impressed with this place…

So after cleaning, replenishing and dumping, I was finally ready to hit the next #campsite on #StateRoad,SmithvilleFlats in #NewYork… By the looks of this #StatePark, I don’t think I am going to have much of a problem out here… You can tell this area has their shit together… Must be #Democratically run… lol… Oh, don’t hate… It’s just a joke!

Well, the drive there was breathtaking… So many vibrant trees and cute, cozy small towns…  Cows!!!! ^

As I got closer to my destination, the #roads got rougher, really rough…

I have to say their #radio sucks out here! Every time I find a song I like, they are at commercial right after… #NewYork needs to reel in their #advertising on the radio… It’s not pleasurable for someone to #drive and have to hear a string of commercials every ten minutes… I understand you have to advertise but I’m sure people have just stopped listening… I know I would if I lived here!

Look at how the #daisies and #dandelions mark the road from either side… They only grew on the edge of the road… I feel like I’m in a #Disney movie!

I almost fell into another trap… there was a spot with a #campfire but the ground was #muddy… I tried to pull in and almost got stuck! My heart stopped! I backed out quickly and decided to move on to another #site… Whew, that was a close call!

IMG 2826IMG 2827

Well, the road soon ended with #nature’s culdesac… I just parked at the end of the circle… This was good enough for me and I am so way out here, I doubt anyone will bother me on a weekday… I certainly was not going to try and make it down that muddy path above… Not only could I get stuck, but those low hanging #trees will beat the shit out my #BucketOfBolts! NO WAY!

So I pulled in, heated up the last of my #AmericanChopChili, took a #MilitaryShower and watched #TheDeparted… Haven’t seen the movie in a long time and it was only $5 at Walmart, so I couldn’t resist… Goodnight folks…

Tell the Traveling Mac what you think... be nice now...
