We left Blackhawk COE park yesterday and drove only 110 miles. Some of the drive was on I90 but a good amount of it was back roads such as this one:
An easy drive. As we got closer to our destination it started to look more and more like certain areas of my home state of New Jersey. NJ is the 3rd largest supplier of cranberries behind Massachusetts and Wisconsin. We call them cranberry bogs in NJ, they call them marshes here.
Seems its time to flood the berries preparing for harvest.
For the next three days we are at
This little casino has 8 RV sites with 30 amp electric hook ups. Maximum stay three days - FREE! We were the only rig here but about 2 hours later another parked and we now see a third.
Last night it got down to the 40's. We turned on the heater for the first time ever this morning. A while later we started getting the whiff of something nasty. Smells like something dead. We can smell it in various parts of the kitchen but not in the bedroom or bathroom. Strange. We've opened windows and sprayed. The smell comes and goes, sometimes stronger. We've not run the heater since early this morning.
We've opened each storage compartment. No smells there. Len is doing some investigating as I write. EEEWWWW! Just got another blast of it. He sprayed air freshener down a vent and put a fan in front of it. The smell coming up from the other vents is the spray. The smell is coming up in areas there is not a floor vent. He opened the heater compartment. Tiny little thing. No way could something get into it.
What the heck? Wasn't in the heater or storage compartment. It was in our trash can! I just almost lost my lunch.
Our rig has what looks like a closet door. Open it and two trash cans pull out. Can 't imagine what it is. I had emptied both right before we left to come here yesterday. There is nothing I threw in it that would give a smell like that. Regardless, I'm not opening either bag again to find out what it is.
The heater is next to the trash cans. When the heater came on it sucked the smell out and blew it through the vents. Now to figure out where to get rid of this trash. No trash cans outside here at the casino. We have a dilemma. But I can rest and not worry about the stench.
