With our time up at the Prince William Forest CG and with my Father-in-Law now at home and seeming to be doing well, we've moved south for a bit.
Chesapeake Thousand Trails (TT) last Friday. We've been Thousand Trails members since 2008, but have never really used the preserves enough to justify our initial and annual expense. Once we began FTing in 2013, we have started to use the preserves more. I'm not going to talk about the decision to join TT here, but in Bill Osborne's blog Seeing the USA he does a nice job of addressing the costs and use factor associated with making an informed decision concerning this matter.
Another reason we decided to choose this preserve was because we knew that they had Pickleball courts. We saw them on our last visit back in 2010, but had never played at that point. We are still having "withdrawal" pains from our nice courts in Arizona, so we were anxious to get in some playing time.

The Pickleball courts are currently under renovation for the upcoming season. No fences, holes in the concrete, and no nets. Not something we were happy to see!
I guess we'll just have to get out and do some additional walking and bicycling. The following pictures around the preserve are of some of the amenities.
