Smile First long tripWell

Well folks I have been off for awhile, between my DW's playing farmville and Words with friends on our trip I haven't had much access to the computer.....Our first big outing consisted of stops in Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, West Yellowstone, Deadwood, S.D., Grand Lake, Ok., Roswell, N.M., San Angelo, Tx. and them home to Corona, Ca. We had a fantastic time with just a few gliches. We had reservations at a R.V. Park in Deadwood, Whistlers Gulch and it was a total fiastco. Arrived a this establishment on the 22 of May and we were going to spend four night. I payed with one of my credit cards and went to my assigned site and started hooking up. The electric ground was not functioning so I went to the office and they gave me another site, no big deal. Hooked up again and went to hook up my cable and couldn't locate the cable outlet. Went back to the office and was informed that they had no cable or WIFI at the sites, only in the Rec Room. Long story short they wouldn't refund my money and I have a dispute going with them...The desk person was very rude. The only other Glich in the 4,600 miles was loosing my Camera at Wall Drugs in S.D. and having a front, lower panel come loose on the passenger side, thank the Lord For Gorilla Glue, worked perfectly. No Toad, no problem. Rented cars at the locations I needed one and all went well. Fuel Mileage varied due to really headwinds in Nebraska and Kansas. Had a few thunder and lighting storms in Oklahoma that kept my dog Molly up all night and of course I was up with her. I average 7 miles to the gallon with V-10 Triton and it didn't seem to matter what speed I traveled at.

Thanks to all the club members for the valuable advise, helped us greatly on out first outing. We really enjoyed the drive on 14A from Yellowtone to Deadwood.
