I'm here at Blackwater Falls State Park, in Davis, WV. Yesterday, the gov of WV was here, announcing formally the renovation plans. Starting Nov 1st, the lodge and campground will be closed for 8 months. The campground presently only has power on about 1/3 of sites, and there is no wifi. When it re-opens, every site will have electricity and there will be wifi service. Rates are going to be raised. There has been no mention in the plans of adding water hookups, but the bath houses are going to be re-done. That was yesterday's bad news. Today's bad thing is that I got lost on forested mountain trails by myself, while having an asthma attack, when it was starting to get dark, because between the attack and the Albuterol side effects, I got a bit disoriented and missed something somehow. Finally found a spot where my phone had a signal just long enough to call the park office. Park superintendents came out to rescue me (I was at that point on the only trail that is accessible at all by a 4wd vehicle). There was actually a log in the way, so the guys had to get out and tie a strap to it and drag it out of the way before we could get off the trail to the road. After recovering, I and trip buddy went to town for food. I was using a company van (it's a business trip, taking disabled client). Got back in the van with the pizza and the van was completely dead. There are no means of transportation besides personal cars and feet here. I had all kinds of thoughts going on. After calling my boss and trying to figure out what to do next, I popped the hood and found the problem was just a loose battery cable. I have no way to tighten it, so it might be a problem on the 3 hour trip home. It's just very hard to deal with those situations while jacked up on/mentally compromised from all the Albuterol from earlier (had to use the inhaler 3 different times while on the trails). Hopefully my next trip here, which is supposed to be in 3 weeks (and is a personal rather than work trip), goes better than this one has. That is, if I can get a reservation because fall is peak time at BWF (can't make reservation yet, gotta work out details). I was going to come in winter for the snow, but unless there is a cabin available (not likely) it probably won't happen with the lodge being closed. Just remember, the only thing that will be opened starting Nov 1st will be cabins, for 8 months. Canaan Valley is about 15 miles from here, so that could be an alternative for an RV.
