The weather has been wonderful, with warm days and cool nights, letting us open the windows and leave the a/c off.
We arrived at Green Acres Lake Park Campground early afternoon. It's under new management, and they still do all their reservations and registrations on paper, no computer. They're hoping to change that soon. Here are some photos of the park. (Click on the pictures to enlarge them.)
Our back-in site, with full hookups and 30 amp service. Notice the trash can right next to our site? We love that!
This old class A motor home is parked behind us. It has a... uh... interesting paint job.
There are two pavilions for meetings and othere activities.
This small swimming lake (more like a pond) is separate from the fishing lake. It has a nice man-made beach.
Bocce, shuffleboard, and horseshoe area
There are many seasonal residents here, with RVs of all shapes and sizes. It's always interesting to see how some people arrange and decorate their sites.
This one has a really nice looking party area, complete with outdoor bar.
Fishing lake. Boat rentals are available.
This building has a game room on the ground floor, and a small cafe on the second floor.
It's a very nice park. We're about halfway between Akron and Youngstown, just off I-76.
Thursday night we started to smell an ammonia odor coming from our refrigerator. That's not good! It's a sure sign that our cooling unit has gone bad. We immediately turned it off and Jim went to the office to get some a couple of RV mobile maintenance referrals. He called a guy and he promised to come out this afternoon (Friday), and said he would call before he comes. Well, it got to 2pm and we didn't hear from him. We noticed an RV mobile repair van was wandering around the park, so Jim tracked him down. Tim, the driver, was nice enough to check our fridge and verified that the cooling unit is bad. Jim called the first guy to cancel the service call ($125 saved), and we put ourselves in the care of All-Pro RV Service of Alliance, OH. Tim called us back from his shop to inform us he can get a cooling unit from their warehouse early next week. Our extended service plan should pay for all but $50 for the repair. Yay! Meanwhile, we got a couple of bags of ice from the office to try to save as much of our refrigerator food as we can. We know we'll lose most of the meat that was in the freezer. Oh well! We'll keep you advised on how all this turns out.
See you in a few days.
