I walked around the Escapees RV Park this morning and determined that it's the smallest escapees RV park that I've been in so far. It's not at all scenic in fact it appears to be a big parking lot with hookups. There's no pavement, there's no flowerbeds except a small cactus garden at the entrance, and there's a lot of coming and going with about a fourth of the people leaving after a night or two. So it appears to be more of a stopover place than a destination.
Now all of that doesn't bother me in the least other than its not really big enough to take a walk, and I haven't found much to take pictures of. But other than that most of my time is spent inside the Arctic Fox anyway so what an RV park looks like, and what amenities it has, is of little interest to me. Except for a laundry room, I really like a place that has a laundry room.
There's a "clubhouse" here but it looks pretty small and when I peeked in to see if they had any books that interest me in the library, there was about 10 people in there all talking at once and because of my poor hearing, and the echo in the room I couldn't understand a word they were saying so I hope that none of them were talking to me.
I guess my hearing is getting to be a problem but my new full timing lifestyle makes it more bearable because I'm able to stay away from situations where I have the most troubles understanding what people are saying. I'm just fine standing around talking to a couple of people as long as there's not a whole lot of background noise going on. But put me in a noisy restaurant kind of atmosphere and I have to do a lot of guessing as to what people are talking about.
I guess as time goes on I will become more reclusive, which is okay by me because I've always been somewhat of a loner and have never been comfortable being around crowds. And it just so happens that the RV lifestyle allows you to be just as gregarious or just as reclusive as you would like to be. You can go to Quartzsite Arizona and park your RV in a big circle with 20 or 30 other people, or you can drive just a little farther out into the desert and be all alone. That's probably one of the things I like the most about being a full-timer, you can tailor your lifestyle to be whatever you want it to be.
