    First stop: Bottle shop

    Nope, it's not bottles _per se_ that they sell in that shop, but rather the *contents* of the bottles!

    As I mentioned in my "packing list" tip, you will want to stock up on your beverage of choice. We bought a few cases of beer at the "bottle shop" before heading off to our campsite.

    In the parking lot was ample evidence of the national leisure exercise--strengthening the biceps by lifting a can of ale.

    Oh, and note the little reindeer antlers tied to the hood ornament, too! ('Twas Christmastime--"spirits" were high!)
