Unhappy Changes

The campground, Point Mallard Campground, we have been using and recommending for the last eight years here near the grandkids is changing it policy and upping its monthly charge by $100. The 18% increase is very excessive for sure but that is not the real trouble.

Part of the campground will be only two week or less stay folks.  The remainder of the campground, which is most of it, will be only long term folks. Now the stickler is the short term area is reserveable for future stays of up to two weeks.

Here is the killer. The long term is designated “first come, first served” and no reservations allowed. So we could tow for five days to stay for a few months like in the past and get here and get told sorry no room for you.  Then what are you supposed to do at 1700 on Friday afternoon. No reservations allowed is not what over the road travelers can live with very well in the Eastern USA.

Effective RIGHT NOW, Point Mallard Campground, a city owned campground in Decatur Alabama is on the OFM Teams NOT RECOMMENDED list.

Now that the ugly news is over, how about an OFM piece of art to laugh at.


This was a fun piece of art to create. It was done in Prismacolor colored pencil. It took a few days to create but went a long way toward trying to have tooooo much fun.
