Post #6 of 6
We arrived at the Morrill Trailer Park yesterday afternoon and are now very hppily set up in one of the most charming spots we've found in a campground. We're next to a house, and have a kind of private patio that has a bench around it with flowers behind the bench. Our internet satellite dish is working fine, as would a TV one. There are several spots with electricity, water and drains. Hummer's comment that they stayed here for several months at a time makes perfect sense to me. We may be here quite a while too! At present we are the only campers, and there are cars parked here from the neighborhood. There are hot showers too, haven't tried them yet.
It was pretty quiet in the night as far as traffic goes. Lots of dogs barking, mostly some distance away, and the roosters start up long before dawn. Heard a burro too.
We walked to downtown this morning, after the manager told us how. Maybe 20 minutes, and half again as long to come back up. The last part is steep.
Finding it wasn't so easy. When we arrived on the edge of Dolores Hidalgo yesterday, coming on Hwy 110 from the east, we followed the first signs we saw for Guanajuato. Big mistake... that ended up bringing us into Gto from the San Miguel direction. We hired a young man guide to hop in the motorhome with us and direct us across the city. He was a help. The directions in the Churches' Guide to Mexican Camping were fine once we got near here.
