UPDATE, Wednesday morning:
The owners want far more than we can afford. Apparently they are sure that there's an army of red-zoners with full wallets out there. We made a modest increase up to our RV limit, and that's our lot. We'll hear the outcome this morning; we'll be disappointed if we don't get it, but not heartbroken. There are plenty more places, many of them closer to central services than Bottle Lake.
