I checked into a campground yesterday for the first time in 3 weeks.
I needed to dump my black tank and it would have cost $12.00 ( black tanks lasted 2 weeks), where as for $34.00 l could stay the night, be hooked up to electricity, free Wi-Fi (not that that is an issue, since it's pretty widely available in my area), run the Air-Conditioner (we are in the 100-120 degree range with the humidex) it's pretty sticky and energy zapping.
Run the Fridge on electric - freeze some bottles of water!
Having a real shower is not such a big deal since l belong to a gym now and l shower there daily, but being able to park and stay and not move the van from place to place is a big deal.
And mostly lets the cats run free for the day and do some house keeping.
