Last week before we picked up it was suggested that a "Where's Ollie" thread might be good for folks to post pictures of where they've been, maybe with a few comments about the location.  I'll get it going....

This is Hillman Ferry State Park in KY at Land Between the Lakes.  Nice campground, with lots of lake water activities.  You can get a site right on the lake to fish from!

Catalina State Park just outside of Tucson last month.  We’ve made reservations for next January already.  

This is Canyon Point USFS Campground.  It’s about 30 miles east of Payson, AZ.  7,700 feet, perfect weather in early August (low 50s at night, high 70s afternoon).  There are two loops, some sites hav

This is Lost Dutchman State Park outside of Phoenix this past January.  It’s a big park and very scenic.  There were a number of Olivers there in January, including the crazy Oliver owners in the midd

This is at Table Rock Lake State Park just outside of Branson, MO.  This is a great campground and just minutes from Branson and all the shows and activities.  We had a good visit to Silver Dollar City during their BBQ and Bluegrass week.  The park is right on Table Rock Lake for those who like water activities.

My mom was from Nova Scotia and about 6 years ago I did a 10 day motorcycle tour of the entire province mostly by following the coastline.  Fortunately I was able to see moms sister shortly before she passed away.  It's a true gem of an area and as you mentioned, some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet.  Hope to return some day in a Oliver.

Mike & Carol,

 

 

 

You're doing a great job!  I've been out of the loop the past week or so due to non-Oliver travel, but will be at the Hiawasee, GA rally this weekend.  Hopefully a bunch of pictures will be here early next week.  I'm a bit jealous of your nice CLEAN Ollie.  When I got mine back in middle February it had been raining for several days and Fall Hollow campground was a sea of mud.

This is Mother Neff State Park just south of Waco, TX.  It sits on land donated to Texas by the mother of former governor Pat Neff.  There are only 16 RV sites, all with full hook ups, tables, etc.  It's very nice and not far off I-35.

 

Bill, our shiny new trailer is now not so shiny after 9 days on the road!

The Thompson's Ollie is at Pulpit Rock Campground near Decorah, Iowa. Great weather--high 60's, nice breeze and sunshine. No bugs here this early in the spring. Decorah is in Northeast Iowa which is part of the "driftless region that includes parts of Wisconsin and Minnesota. The glaciers bypassed this area resulting in a very hilly and interesting terrain. The rivers and streams run clear and many have wild trout. Great bicycling here too. Biked about 20 miles today.

This is Round Pond Recreation Area at West Point, New York.  Campsites are spread around the pond with picnic pavilions,  boat dock and beach area.

Sites are nicely spaced, we couldn't see our neighbor - the next site was about 30 to 40 yards up the road.

This is just across the road from our site looking across the pond.  This was the third week in October.

Just returned from camping at Lake Wateree State Park SC. Took our Kayaks for the first time while camping with the Ollie. High temps 60s and 30s at night.

 

Bill,

 

Nice lakeside site!  30s/60s is great weather for camping.... Mike

Canoe 12,

 

We fish at a wildlife club in NC with a small private lake where a fishing license is not required. Sometimes we purchase an annual SC fishing license while camping in SC.

 

Is there a national fresh water fishing license? Read about a petition for a Seniors National Fishing License.  Would be nice to have so we could post photos of fish caught around the nation in front of our Ollie.

 

Thanks,

Great idea about a "senior" National fishing license. A great way for states to get some well needed tourists into their state. Also most seniors are " catch and release" type anglers and wouldn't deplete any source. Maybe we need to petition our members of Congress? I know Maine sells non-resident licences that vary in length of time, but you have to find someone open to sell you one. Maybe for a few bucks you could get a stamp that would make it reciprocal in another state?

I camped near the giant General Sherman tree, at Lodgepole campground.  The picture was taken during my descent to the southern exit.  It is  very very very winding road with many miles of hairpin curves.  You folks in the Ollie II should call ahead to make sure they'll allow you on that route.  Here is a comment from the park's information:

 

Generals Highway

 

The section of the Generals Highway leading from the Sequoia park entrance to the Giant Forest sequoia grove was built in the early 1920s and connot accommodate longer vehicles.

 

Vehicles longer than 22 feet (6.7 m) are not advised between Potwisha Campground and the Giant Forest Museum in Sequoia National Park.

 

Good luck . . . (sometimes being short comes in handy)
