Well, this is what I get for thinking that after 45 years of marriage I can actually out-guess my wife. She typically likes more rustic campgrounds and she is very thrifty, so given the difference between $36 for 3 nights at Diamond O with no hookups or amenities and $179 for 3 nights at Thousand Trails RV resort with full hookups, I went ahead and booked Diamond O while she was gone for the day shopping. But thinking I'd be smart and show her both options tonight, not telling her that I had booked Diamond O, and letting her make the choice, I'd look like the hero when she chose Diamond O and I could tell her that I already made the reservations. As you have probably already guessed, she chose Thousand Trails! So, I made reservations there and will cancel at Diamond O, but you can bet that I'm not telling her about that part!
I blame the portable satellite dish that I bought her for the trailer last fall. I think it has made her soft and now she needs electrical hookups...
