We just got back from spending 10 days by the lake in the camper. Had a pallet of bags delivered the first day.

Only issue we had was when to treat. Did not want to miss beautiful days, didn't want to miss beautiful sunset.

Thank you, NxStage.

I knew there are vacation deliveries available with sufficient notice but I never gave a thought as to WHERE.

Delivery to an RV Camp site is great!  I would have thought you would need a trailer, pick up the pallet somewhere in town, and haul it out to the site.

I imagine this is only available to limited easily available locations.  Definitely NOT the high country places I used to pitch a tent.  LOL

Actually Charlie this was a property the family owns so it has an actual address. However last year I had a weeks worth delivered to a campground in Indiana where we were to attend a rally. Alas, fistula issues at the time forced us to cancel the trip. They "disposed" of the bags.

I'm sorry you had the issues and were unable to make your trip that time.  Still, it's pretty neat that supplies will be delivered some places other than at home.

Needle-phobic as I am it may be some time yet before I am ever able to even consider doing so.

Someday, maybe.  Just not today.
