Down the road a bit, casino camping for the night.

Where are we today ?
       After a great travel day yesterday and Father's Day visiting with two of my children, 3 grands, a cousin and her husband we a great nights sleep. Then this morning we visited a bit more and slowly made our way out of their driveway. Over to the plaza around the corner to hook up our car and noticed this interesting, homemade truck camper in the parking lot.

       They have things to do and so do we. Not moving far just about 99 kms (60 miles) to Kawartha Downs Race track and slot machines.  A leisurely back country drive thru rolling hills no hurry.
99 kms today
        Got there about noon and had a bite to eat for lunch. Nice and quiet here no racing until the weekend, they have horses on Saturday and stock cars on sunday.
nice country drive
this be the place
quickly set up, away from the casino
         We had a coupon for free $10.00 free slot play. So we signed up for a players card and with a promotion today we each got $20.00 free slot play. I played my first $5.00 credit on the 2 cent machine for  quite a while and kept winning, then cashed out with $32.90. I played another $10.00 for another while then we finally went back home. Suzie not so lucky but it was all free money anyway. Only one restaurant here and no great deals and nothing exciting to eat so we returned home to enjoy a couple hours reading our books in the sun, then shade (getting to hot).
so peaceful here
         Shortly after 5 o'clock I whipped up supper inside. (don't much like to BBQ in a parking lot) Grilled chicken breast, home fried potatoes with, onions, mushrooms and peppers to accompany a tasty salad.
sure hit the spot
        We told security we are here for the night and they will keep us secure. Compute a bit read a bit more after a 5 minute mini rain, then will call it a night.
        Bonus, tomorrow morning we get a free continental breakfast AND another free $5.00 slot play each. Gotta love these deals. Free parking for the night, free slot play and a free breakfast. And will leave here with $32.90 in our pockets, maybe more!
       Thanks for stopping in again hope you are having as much fun as us. Tomorrow afternoon heading to our Coast to Coast home Park for two weeks of free camping in cottage country. Not too far from here, of course we will meet up with a few more friends there too.
        Still working on a short posting from the wedding Saturday night (now that we have good internet again), lots pics to sort through.

    1. We enjoy most Casinos, especially the free camping, free money and free food. Sure is nice when we get actually paid to camp here,

  3. I enjoy Casino Camping. There is one in New Mexico that has a full hookup RV park that they charge $10 for but then they give you a $10 voucher for gas at their gas station. When we were there they also had a two for one deal on in their restaurant. There is always something they give you that makes your stay painless.

  4. I've stayed at a couple of casino lots - I'm not interested in gambling; don't even do the slots - although a 2 cent machine would be just about my speed. I've tried to give the casino some business - like eating breakfast in their coffee shop, or such - in return for a free, or almost free site. I love reading about Canada, especially in the warmer months and am sorry I haven't made it there in Floribunda - yet. You two have fun wherever you are! Belated Happy Father's Day, George.

    1. Thanks Mary-Pat we don't do much in Casinos but with a new players card they usually give you free slot play so we do take advantage of that and if we win great, if not we had fun.
      Canada is nice in the summer, not so much in the winter though.

    1. To win some money is always nice, does not always happen that way though.

  6. I'm mostly surprised that we have "Casino Camping". Figured there would be some hidden by-law or something that would preclude staying for the night.
    Penny slots are about my speed, since I'm rarely "up".

    1. They are open 24 hours so vehicles are parked there all night long.
      The penny slots work for us too.

  7. Sounds like stopping at the casino was a great deal, especially if you won a little. When I was a kid, our family spent a week or so fishing on the lakes around Lakefield and I can remember that we went through Peterborough,
