We planned on booking into an RV park near the California grands' house. Thank goodness for Plan C! We're always Semper Gumby (Always Flexible) as the RV lifestyle demands.
The area we're in is limited in RV parks, so we didn't have a lot to choose from. Our first choice, a fairground was completely filled up, so we looked further. The next RV park wanted $40 a night for just water and electric. They did have a dump station, but charged $25 to use it, including the RVs staying at the park. No thanks, we'll hold it in.
The last choice had a $300 weekly rate, or a $600 monthly rate plus electric plus a $600 security deposit. Trying to wrap our head around that left us crossing that park off the list. Now in a quandary, we'd have to look for parks more than an hour a way, plus the requirement to cross a toll bridge. Not good enough.
Plan C opened up when the neighborhood president said it was okay to stay right in the driveway. No objection from us, we've plugged into the house electric to keep the batteries charged and the fridge running while using the house showers/bathroom so we don't need to dump tanks. Plus with the very mild weather and quiet neighborhood, it's fine to sleep in the Journey, nothing better than your own bed.
Things always work out for the best. Plus we're saving a fortune on campground fees. No complaints from us. :c)
