    I just got news from another person on RV.net that cal47 has previously stated elsewhere that he is a camp host for PRCG - so that pretty much ties that line of detective work up.

    AH! So it is being seen by someone who is campground related. Unfortunately, as in the case of Saturday night, when the manager or owner was requested by one of our members that didn't occur and may be unlikely here.

    Did anyone notice that the fella that did come in place of Peace River Campground's owner/manager never got out of his golf cart, just sprawled in it like it was a lounge chair?

    Well when i was detained on my way back to the campsite, the owner's wife came out (she was somewhere in her 40's i believe) and then when back at the site picking up Christina, a younger, fitter looking guy, who looked somewhat in control, compared to the rest of the guards, came in and said 20 mins to pack up to me. I told him we had nothing to pack up but the two of us and the two dogs and he turned and walked away. He drove away right after that from what i saw, he was in an SUV or truck i think rather than a golf cart - but dont quote me on that as there were many vehicles in the area behind the parked ones from our group.

    Shame neither of them was available at the front desk an hour or so earlier....

    I can't believe this! What the hell ever happened to "customer respect" or the idea that the customer is always right??? It is a damned shame that you guys were treated that way - and I almost joined you, but had to work. Fact is this: They'll forever be sorry that they treated The Conch Divers this way. How mistaken they were to think that we do not "discuss" the good and bad, on a forum. Let's see how it hurts them - in the pocket. As a businessperson, you'd better learn to kiss some ass, rather than starve... and I sincerely DOUBT that this group was looking for anything more than fair treatment. SHAME on you, PRCG. I, for one, will not send any of MY customers to you. Not a threat, just a promise.

    I too believe "Cal" is the golf cart loudmouth.
    I also notice nobody on the RV forum seems to share his view.

    :11: He is the man that was at our campsite and trying to hide behind his screen name. That alone should tell everyone that what they are saying about us is just not true. We have all been honest and upfront here, but these people don't wan tot tell them how they were so unproffessional to us.

    Thank you for the insight of this man Now everyone will know the TRUTH!!!

    That is an enlightening post. He's not overly honest either, some ATV trails? Yes, a few years ago it was trails. As we learned from our experience, virtually every area under the 'wilderness' is now an ATV or golfcart trail that starts being used at sun-up and runs right through late night. Camp sites or even being riverside lends no margin of safety to the camper as some riders ignore those boundaries.
