Iditarod is one of the Seward Waterfront Parks. It is the furthest to the south and the smallest with dry camping only, no tent, just 10-ish RV parking space. What it is lacking was made up for with its awesome view. However, this year they have a nasty camp host. We felt harassed, intimidated and discriminated by him. Perhaps it was the color of my skin, or my gender, or my small stature, or I am from out of state.
Thursday, May 29 we paid the parking fee at Iditarod kiosk and picked an unoccupied site 103. That evening when I returned to our RV, a man approached me and said I was in his site. The following is the brief and only conversation I had with the camp host. Judge for yourself.
HOST: Excuse me, how long are you staying?
ME: Ummm, a while.
HOST: How long? You know 103 is a reserved site for camp host.
ME: But there is no sign.
HOST: It's just because they don't know when I'm arriving.
ME: When I talked to the city worker who serviced the pay station (at 12:15pm) did not tell me about you. In fact he confirmed that I can pick any unoccupied site.
HOST: Those young kids don't know anything. (pause) When are you leaving?
ME: It depends on the weather.
HOST: The weather will be like this (motioning to the drizzling rain).
ME: I'm staying for the weekend.
HOST: So you are leaving on Monday?
ME: (I did not answer.)
HOST: I'll move into 103 when you check out on Monday.
ME: (I said nothing; and he turned around and went back to his RV. At this point I felt like I am being interrogated, given a deadline to vacate, and told not to return.)
He is the camp host who camped next to us. The following two days was rainy and everybody stayed inside. The host did things to show us that we are NOT welcomed, such as turning on his portable generator from 7:30am to 10:30pm, facing our window. When we came out during breaks in the rain, he would switch over to the big stinky generator of his rig just to show us. After two days, we had enough and left Seward.
