Day 6*: I hate you Garmin!

I know, I know "hate" is a strong word, but at 11 pm, when towing a camper the little map "helper" needs to be able to find a campground.  It was not.  We ended up staying on the road until we made it to the next state park (where we had planned to visit the next day).  Unfortunately, when we arrived, the gate was closed and the campground was full (remember when I said we didn't make any reservations for this trip?).  Do you know what that means?  It means we slept in the parking lot.  Granted, the monkeys and I slept in the camper.  On a bed.  But, my poor DH slept in the truck so he could guard us (and greet the ranger if need be...we were in their parking lot at the trailhead, after all).  So, we got a good few hours of sleep, talked to the ranger, found out that there were no sites in the whole campground for the whole weekend, and decided to go swimming.  The state park has a river that runs through rocks.  It is so beautiful and fun.  We spent about two hours playing, and then hitched up to head out for home.

*Sorry for the break in posting, I was in the Holler, and couldn't post.  I guess I could have, but I would probably still be there waiting for the internet to connect.
