Montgomery City Zoo and Mann Wildlife Learning Center. Karen and I hadn't been to a zoo together since we last saw the National Zoo in Washington, DC. The Montgomery Zoo isn't as large as DC's, but we still had a good time. It was not crowded and most of the crowd was comprised of younger families with smaller kids. The zoo is divided into continents with animals native to each area.

Of course, we saw the lions, tigers, and bears, but also chimps, giraffes, and elephants as well.
You can never go wrong watching a chimp! (Unless, of course, you get a bit too close.)
Moving on to the "Ants" part of today's blog. Here at Gunter Hill COE park we've been invaded by ants, the small black "sugar ant" type. We would love to hear any blog reader suggestions for ways to prevent/eliminate these little buggers. To bring you up to date, we've already tried putting vaseline around our water hose where it enters the rig. NO GOOD! The ants march right thru it. Next I tried wrapping a dryer sheet around the water hose, but again the ants walked right over it.
Any suggestions on this subject would be greatly appreciated. I guess this is one of the few negatives associated with fulltiming. We've been camping in various styles of rigs for over 20 years now and never had this problem. I believe we are having the problem now because we are sitting parked in one place for more extended periods of time.
Thanks for taking a look!
