It's sort of strange, but we have few really pretty sunrises here in the campground. However, today was a good one.
Here is a little different view from above and behind our campsite.
The view out our back window was pleasant as well.
And one last pic of Skyline Arch from here in the campground.
The wind started up again about 4:00 am and woke us up. We went back to sleep, but I was still up around 6:00 and Linda slept in until about 8:30.
Once again, we used only 9 amp hours overnight. We used about 30 amp hours making coffee and using the computers. So we started the day with a deficit of about 135 amp hours.
I actually completed two handyman projects this morning. I reinforced a kitchen drawer and installed some wall hooks in the basement. What's the world coming to? :)
Then I hitched a ride with Jack into Moab to pick up the Jeep. The new bumper and winch look pretty good.
All we need now is a little bit of lift. That's kind of a joke because that's what every off-roading person we see says. :)
The morning was sunny and the solar panels were cranking. We got 70 amp hours back pretty quickly. But by the afternoon, thick clouds rolled in and our charging went down to a trickle.
But we still didn't need to use the generator today.
Later, longtime RV-Dreams readers Grant & Kathy ...
(and Raider) came by for a visit. They began their full-timing adventure at the beginning of this year. Check out their blog at Birding RVers. :)
Oh, I got up close and personal with Raider for a moment. :)
Unfortunately, Linda had to meet with our supervisor in the middle of our visit, and then she got caught up in some training of the new camphosts. But I got to spend quite a bit of time with our guests.
It was great to finally meet them as Grant and I have corresponded many times. With hugs, they went on their way. We only wish we would have had time to spend doing some birding with them.
But we are ready to move on, and we will be leaving the Moab area tomorrow. We are headed to the Needles District of Canyonlands National Park for a few days.
I had intended to get out and take some final photographs here at Arches, but the weather didn't cooperate. It was just too cloudy, windy, and dusty for good shots.
Instead, I installed our new check valve component for our water system that arrived via UPS today. Amazingly, I got it installed all by myself ... and it works!
We have gone without using water for a day and a half, because every time we turned the water pump on, water would gush back out through the broken check valve. Problem solved. :)
We got our final proof of the RV-Dreams Family Favorites Cookbook and Linda went through it. It's gonna be really nice when it is complete around the first part of June.
After a quick dinner, we walked down to Jack & Danielle's site to celebrate the end of their last shift. One of the rangers gave us a bottle of wine as a parting gift.
We discussed how all four of us are always ready to move on when our commitments end. No matter how much we like the workamping jobs we do, when the end nears, we get anxious to be done. It's more a celebration of what is next than a celebration of leaving. :)
And with that, it is time to move on. :)
