I've learned for all my life that I should use to+infinitive form for the verb in the sub-sentence when the main verb is ask. But I found this following sentence today.
Although the camp grounds will remain open, we ask that all visitors travel the grounds with caution.
Isn't underlined travel supposed to be to travel? Or should I just consider ask one of the verbs such as suggest/insist/demand/recommend which have to be followed by (should) infinitive clause?
Thanks for your opinion in advance:)
"Travel the ground" sounds odd.
Perhaps "move around/about with caution".

"Travel the grounds" is unnatural. The problem isn't with the word "grounds". It's using "travel" like this. As Tedmc said, "to move around the grounds" is much more natural.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Thanks for the replies everyone! I got the point. :)
