- VVR does have the ability to take credit cards, but he adds
everything up on a tally sheet and then at his convience he runs it

As far as Muir, the lady that called herself the grandma of the camp

told me several times that they had very little, and what they had
was expensive. Use of their computer for email was $10 for 15 minutes.
