Buckhorn cactus and yellow flowers. Ben Avery's gun range
I'm really enjoying RV Park life, I'm getting used to the noise, and having people parked all around me, and waking up every morning at 7:30 to the sound of gunfire, but it feels so good to have air conditioning, all the hot water I want to use, and my toaster oven.
One of the downsides is that shopping and restaurants are very close by, so I'm spending more money than I would normally. I'm not going over my budget, but I'm certainly not saving anything.
Another downside is that I can get about 50 channels on my TV in the Arctic Fox. when I'm Boondocking I usually only get four or five channels or nothing at all. I don't have satellite TV because normally I don't watch enough television to make it worthwhile, but with this many channels available it's not hard to get hooked on watching TV. And that means I spend less time walking around outside or doing something else that's better for me than sitting in an easy chair watching the tube.
But despite all of the creature comforts of staying at Ben Avery's I'm still looking forward to Boondocking again. For me the peace and quiet and not being surrounded by people is worth sacrificing a little bit of comfort.
