Mount Isa, blocked drains.

Wednesday 31st August 2011, Mount Isa.

WHY ALWAYS US?? An incident last night caused us to think just that. We started to smell an old familiar aroma during the mid hours of the evening and it turned out to be the drains. It seems there is a blockage in the drains somewhere and apparently our drain hole is the lowest in level because it is where the backlog decided to run out. This was not the main problem though, guess where the drain hole on our site was;- under the caravan, and all the drainage ran out of it and under our annexe right under our door, and was a foul smell. We had to put up with it last night as it was not the appropriate time to move, but we have now moved on to a different site that we both much prefer. It turns out that when we arrived here the caravan park was very full and the site we got was one of the very few that was vacant and consequently broke most of our rules for picking a site, facing west, no trees, close to amenities etc. we now comply with most of these rules, and it does seem to be much more comfortable.

We may now have a valid reason to stay here a little longer as K and A’s son rang me this morning because it turns out they are heading out this way and want to meet, so we may just sit here until they arrive. I am also getting a new sign made up advertising my TV and Satellite help so it might be a good place to test out its effectiveness seeing we are now on a site that is a bit more visible to most park patrons as they must pass our site to go anywhere.
