Our next stop was Ocean Pond Campground in the Osceola National Forests. It is a nice small park with only 19 first come, first serve electric/water sites. Upon arrival, there was a sign that said electric hookups were full. I walked down the street and found one where someone had just left and gabbed it fast.
We made friends with Helen and Ken (both in their 80's). They were from rural Maine and had lots of stories for us.
Before leaving, Sherrian noticed a small puddle of hydraulic fluid on the pad of the rear jack. Having no experience with a leaking jack. I had nightmares that my jacks and slides wouldn't retract. The older fellas in the campground helped ease my fears by telling me a small leak should not be a problem. The leak was at the top of the jack and I could fit in the tight space to see where it was coming from. At any rate, the old guys were right. Everything worked fine and we were able to hit the road.
This is our second visit to Salt Springs and have met many friends from last winter and made some new ones. By the way, we put the jacks down and our leak disappeared!
We are looking forward to more hikes and bike rides in the forest.
