The campground had old bicycles lined up marking their boundary. The two RV Gypsies donated their two bicycles to this campground because they had not used them on the entire trip, even though they were in excellent condition - just dirty from the Alaska Highway. The bikes below are NOT the ones, the two RV Gypsies donated.
