Always Welcome

This is the second time they’ve stayed at our place. Once again they were as easy as could be. We were both busy and barely interacted which is just fine.

Did not listen to instructions, lack of communication

We had to initiate almost all communication with this guest. All of our previous guests would at least message when they arrive and when they leave. No communication from this guest.

We provide very specific instructions that makes it easy to get into our property, especially with a very small rig like these guests... However they did not utilize our instructions, and pulled in from the wrong direction. When we arrived at our property to find they had nearly run off of our driveway and caused the edges to collapse into the yard. They also left a large rut on the grassy area just outside our gate. This would not have happened if they would have followed our instructions.

Finally, and we don't want to seem petty, but they did not leave any donation at all, and not even a small "thank you" card. We realize they did not take advantage of any of our full hookups, but it would be nice to at least get a little card or something.
