Some camp grounds do have handicap sites and we do not like to use them if we do not display the hand tag. As for the plates have you really looked at the number of people that have the plates and look like the most fit person you know. Now don't start on the "not all disabilities can be seen". I know that, as the kids say "just saying". As for "I can't run from you" I couldn't either but I can stay and fight. Notice I didn't say stand and fight. "just saying" Maybe I'm just naive.
I would not say you are naive at all. And I never suggest my way is anything but that! Lol. I have a placard as well. And I did avoid the defense topic that shall not be named... But the truth is you come looking for it - you will certainly find it. I don't advertise that either lol. And I'm with you on properly displaying the placard in the appropriate surroundings. I just choose to pick the time and place to "display" my badge.
When using the car we generally use the placard and parking but have not used the "accessible" spaces at a CG. That usually means close to the laundry / showers and we prefer to choose - when given the choice - our space based on other factors like trees - site condition etc. I rarely if ever use CG showers - and we have W/D on board so we have limited laundry needs. Plus Annie likes to stroll her way to the CG office or laundry, etc. Now I will say - if I find a situation where "the site" is next to a great pool I may just take it.
I also avoided heaping praise upon you for your pursuits. I'm personally uncomfortable with folks making a big deal about things and have heard that from some others as well. So at the risk of offense - Tip of the Hat to you both. I really hope we cross paths one day. We'd love to meet ya and take a gander at that 29.1. Hope I did not offend in any way. Not my intent.
