I felt kinda sorry for the gent in the 1900 loop that was backing his 5er into his site.... and ran over the site number pole.  Apparently it was wedged under his rig pretty good, cause after about an hour or so of blocking the roadway, the pole was cut in half, allowing the rig to completely back into the site.  I've never seen a pole cut before to remedy this......it was a good solution, though!

Best flattening of Fort property I ever saw was a class A that was pulling forward to straighten out and plowed smack over a trash can they were too close to and apparently never saw. Luckily it was the older style and it just crumpled.  If it was one of the new "bear proof" ones that rig might still be hung up on it.

When I saw the title I thought it might have been a former across the street neighbor of ours. He and the wife sold the house and bought a Class A. The day they brought it home he leveled our next door neighbor's mailbox. About a month later when they fired it up to leave they wiped the mailbox out again. They never offered to pay and when caught in the act the second time he used an expletive with the daughter and said something to the effect they better hope the mailbox didn't damage his rig. The really sad part is another neighbor of ours performs regionally in a gospel group. He owns and drives their tour bus and is more than happy to give anyone some lessons on driving large rectangular boxes on wheels.

We stayed in site 1919 last fall and loved that loop!  Wouldn't have liked it without a cart though.  Do you remember which site number?  

When we were looping last fall we noticed in the 700 loop many of the site markers used different fonts and were different sizes and sometimes they were high on the post and sometimes they were lower on the post.  Anyone else notice something like that in other loops?

I've seen those in the 700 too. I've seen a few others, but the 700 visitors must be hell on posts.

My Favorite is either the 800 or 900 bus stop where they overhang has been hit many times.  They finally cut it back at angle.  I assume this is from RVs coming out of the loop but it could be the internal buses.

We stayed in the 800 loop Dec. 2018 and again in April 2019. I can see how people can snag that corner. The exit is at kind of a funny angle and you have to go way out into the oncoming lane to make the right hand turn to leave. I do love that loop though.

Yeah my first venture with our own camper many years ago I backed over one of those Poles in the 800 loop .. tore it out of the ground with the step side in my truck .. damaged the step side .. snapped the pole out of the ground .. I was so embarrassed and aggravated
