i.e. collect the personal data first, then hunt for slots. But for some reason, every site did it the other way round. And then there's **** like Kinney's which forces one to start from scratch every time the first selected slot was gone by the time the rest of the data was entered.

(In the end, we went with the State, even though it was a longer drive. Best decision ever. Turned out they set up camp in an abandoned JC Penney's. Acres of parking and plenty of space inside. And by the time it was my turn, they had cut the data collection to the minimum and reversed the order. Yay! Done in less than a minute.)
