Default Our hide a way!

Not exactly real estate, but it is sorta related in a round a-bout way. We have a seasonal campsite 3 hrs away. We've been talking and want to find something closer. Summer camp prices are crazy around here. Most are selling for roughly the same price as a house in the city. We're currently looking at a long term seasonal site about an hr away. We'd have the option of building an add a room addon on the site, a storage shed and deck. We're going to look tonight and if we like it, we're going to get the camper tomorrow and bring it back to set it up there semi-permanently. We still plan maybe 1-2 trips a yr with it away from the seasonal site so it will be set up for easy removal.

An escape place is good for your sanity. I found one recently that I like a lot.

Hey Groomer Guy you need a secluded site so your friends won't catch you hugging that krusty you keep on the down low.

No Krusty for this guy. My circus days are long over.

A quick update because it's been a busy few days. So friday, we drove an hr to go look at the place and pick our site. It's a new campground that basically didn't exist two years ago. Actually, the site we picked was just filled in with gravel and leveled on Thursday last week. It didn't exist prior to that. On friday, the hydro lines were still not connected. The water lines didn't have taps. So Saturday, we drove the 3 hrs back to Geraldton to get the camper in a rain storm accompanied by strong winds. I was a little worried my little durango would have a hard time pulling it but we managed to maintain the speed limit at least. We got home late Saturday night and backed the camper in the yard so I could give it a bath since the hwy was under construction and I drove 20 miles in the rain/mud with the camper on behind. I found myself outside at 11pm in a rain storm saturday night washing the camper so we could get it ready to haul to the new site in the morning.

Morning rolls around and I find myself spending a few hours heading to home depot to get some plywood and other materials to build some additional shelving in the closets. What were 3 basically useless closets designed for hanging clothes are now 3 nice shelving units with enough storage for a family of 6 to store clothes. We finally hit the road again at 3pm and make it out to the new site shortly after 4. The hydro was finally hooked up but no water yet. Our site is approx 60x30 so we have plenty of room. The site, being new, is only gravel right now but it's a blank canvas. We plan on building a storage shed, wood shed, tarped shelter for the atv's. Grassed area and fire pit.

The lake is roughly 19 miles long and has pike, walleye, bass, and lake trout. We have access to unlimited atv trails in the area. Great hunting for birds, moose, deer, bear, and sasquatches. I think we are going to love it there.

It's not real unless there's pictures... True of camp sites, not necessarily Sasquatch.

Glad you found a good site. Does it have access for your boat? I watched folks at the one local campground enjoying a quiet evening yesterday. It is a nice escape from living in the city.

It has a boat launch/beach area on the entrance to the campground. Our site is a few feet higher then the row of sites infront of us which allows us to overlook them and have a decent view of the lake.

Looks like some of the deforested areas along the Ivanhoe River the last time I was up there. Lots of trails, just not many trees left. Hope you plant some trees to give your camper shade someday.

of the photos: nice, nice, nice and nice.

Those are big sites. I hate being packed in like sardines where you can't even get your slides out. There's room to breathe there. I like it. Give it a year and the grass will grow and it'll be like a little piece of heaven I wouldn't want to be caught in a Texas gully washer right now though.

Is the landscaping going to be your responsibility?

We were told that the sites are "as is". What we want on them is up to us. If we want grass, we plant it. If we want a deck or add a room, we can add whatever we want. The lots are nice. It's probably about 400 ft down to the lake from our site. We plan on building a storage shed and laying down some patio slabs then grassing whats left leaving room to park the boat and atv's and vehicles.

Very Nice. So much potential.
That trailer looks huge to be being pulled by the Durango. Makes the Durango look small.
