The two RV Gypsies drove their RV
to Concrete, Washington
July 5, 2015

This was not easy traffic to drive a big RV in.

Below: In very heavy traffic, a big semi changed lanes and cut in front of the RV of the two RV Gypsies. He scrapped the side mirror on the RV (arrow 1) and took some of the paint off (arrow 2). Lee hit his brakes enough to slow down and let the truck in front of the RV, but the truck did not stop or acknowledge what he did, and Lee had to just let it be.

Check in time was 2 p.m. Check out time was 11 a.m. Late check-outs may be charged. Wi-Fi only available within 50 feet of the Family Center. Cable TV only available at the Family Center. TV did not work at sites unless you have your own satellite. The roads were gravel. Sites were dirt and grass (if you are lucky).

The site the two RV Gypsies got was very tight and close to the neighbor. Sites were slanted and that helped a bit. Laundry was open 24 hours. Propane was available outside the park at Grandy Creek Grocery - mention KOA and they give you a small discount. Pool and spa hours at 9 am to 9 p.m. in season. Adult swim 3-4 p.m. No one under 18 allowed in the hot tub. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all times. (Yet the two RV Gypsies observed the campers across the street with at least 6 young children who were probably ages 5-8 who rode their bikes by themselves and ran all over the campground alone).

Other standard camping rules applied regarding bikes, pets, quiet time, drugs, alcohol, trees, no vehicle washing, no clotheslines etc. (But again, these were not enforced while the two RV Gypsies were here). The campground was staffed 24/7. The jump pillow, mini golf, and ice cream social cost extra and required the purchase of a wrist bracelet. The ice cream social here was $2.50. It was only $1 at the last KOA. This was a holiday week-end so the place was crowded. The two RV Gypsies stayed out of the campground as much as possible.

Below: The site of the two RV Gypsies. Before the neighbor moved in it seemed like a nice spot, but when the other neighbor came in, the two RV Gypsies realized what a small spot they had.

As seen above, both sides of the RV had a tree. Some of the bins couldn't even be opened because of the trees.

Below: While the two RV Gypsies were moving into their site, Karen had to pick up paper napkins that had blown off their neighbors picnic table. The people were sitting outside and watched Karen pick up their trash.

After parking, the below photo is one view of the neighbors butt crack as he sat outside. Other times, the two RV Gypsies had to look at his extremely fat and large "beer belly". They had a very large site and a small camper, while the two RV Gypsies had a very tight site and a large RV. This was not a pleasant view for the two RV Gypsies as they sat in their RV. They left the day before the two RV Gypsies, and they left more trash on the ground at their site.
