There are RV resorts near where Mike is working but they are crowded. They do provide sewer hook ups and free WiFi/cable. The sites are so close together that the neighbor's sewer/ electric hook ups are only a few feet from your picnic table. Ugh! So we moved to Natural Falls state park near by. As I have mentioned before it is beautiful, however, we can only stay 2 weeks then we have to leave for few days. There is no sewer hook ups only a dump station which means once a week we have to pack up to empty our grey tanks. We have 2 grey tanks (125 gallons) and no black tank because we use a composting toilet. The whole process takes about 2 hours total.
There isn't wifi/cable accessibility here. We rely on mirroring our cell phone with the TV, so we can watch Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon. We have an HD antenna to get a few local channels. The Mifi is my main source for the internet. I only have 12 GB for a month so I monitor usage closely. I have unlimited data on my phone but sometimes it is hard to work from a phone.
We traded modern conveniences for natural beauty and tranquility. This park is closer Flint Creek Power Plant than our previous location at The Creeks RV resort.
Where to go when we have to step out of the park for a weekend. Trying to find a place for the weekend would seem relatively easy. Not. Our rig is 37 ft. long and a lot of great parks only allow up to 32 ft. No exceptions either. Plus, we don't book our weekend "get aways" until last minute because we might have to move to another job in another state. We just don't have a set schedule right now.
For Labor day weekend, we are traveling to Foss Lake State Park go kayaking and possibly horseback riding. Then we are driving the Jeep up to Alabaster Cavern State Park to explore the only gypsum cave in the United States and second largest in the world.
