Park Review

We are in The Palms River Resort at Needles. Fair warning - THERE WILL BE BANJO PLAYING! There will be another picker joining me in January. We intend to make noise. Not music; noise.

If that isn't enought - I've got my amp. and guitar. I might even sing.

Know how to tune a banjo? Throw it into a dumpster. When it goes "thunk" that is a close to in tune as you can get.

As to review - this place is awsome.

When I was in the lodging business, this cut down on bogus reviews as it makes it a little harder. When Trip Advisor started this it helped a lot.
It's my understanding that this technology enables a site to identify the IP address of an individual submitting a review. If someone attempts to submit multiple reviews of the same park (or a place on TripAdvisor) it will flag it. However, it doesn't keep any particular individual from submitting a review of any particular park. Furthermore, you can easily defeat the process by using a different internet connection, such as by taking your laptop to Starbucks, instead of using it from home.

I have heard (I am not a computer whiz) that they can get it down to the actual computer ID. Either way, a committed person can beat the system. This is especially difficult when the economy and businesses are struggling. A good or bad review can mean a whole lot of money and maybe even the difference between red or black ink.

I believe there is a lot of misinformation out there about what can ultimately be obtained and what can be obtained without court order or other legal justification. IMHO we all spend too much time watching TV crimes shows and think that what they do to solve a murder is done routinely.

Here's a discussion of the basic information a website can access about your visit to their site: What can a website I visit tell about me?

OK, now I am convinced that not that everyone realized my banjo quote was a reference to the movie Deliverance. As in, paddle faster I hear banjos playing.

Our first year we took a trip to see the New River Gorge bridge (West Virginia) in October. The first state campground we pulled into was literally in the mountains and completely deserted, miles from anywhere. You leave your camping fee in a box, no rangers. My wife agreed that "we could almost hear banjos playing" it was so creepy, so we found a small commercial campground almost in the shadow of the bridge with at least a few campers present, along with a small store. We felt much more secure.

Doesn't even take that much effort if you have a dynamic IP host. I get a different IP every time my router re-boots with our Qwest (or whatever they're calling themselves this week) DSL line.

Now that sounds like a perfect campsite for us, and is exactly the type of camp I'm in right now only in Moab, It's just what we look for. And I do like banjo, I have more than a bit of Flatt and Scruggs loaded in my 16GB chips in the dash players. (and I did get, and liked the reference)
