I went back and added a few photos to yesterday's "Propane Lessons" entry. Thought it might help. :)
Then we got some interesting news. The folks that were supposed to be our camphost teammates at Arches in March & April had to suddenly back out.
Since we knew Robbie & Alice were interested in camphosting there at some point, we immediately checked to see if they were interested. They had visited Arches when we were there last year, and Robbie had even done a couple rounds with us to see what we did.
After some pondering, they agreed to join us and we shot off an email to our volunteer coordinator. Cool.
Most of the rest of the day, I worked on January financials while Linda and the gals had another beading session. I didn't get finished, so I'll have to wrap that up tomorrow or Monday.
During the day, Doug & JoAnn arrived. They had left Boomerville to get a propane heater installed. Since they had to pack up anyway, they decided to come join the gang here for a few days.
We have lots of room here, so any RV-Dreamers in the area that want to join us are more than welcome. :)
Late in the afternoon I went to town. I filled up the Jeep for Linda's trip to Benson tomorrow and stopped to pick up our new sign from Crraazy Jack's Redwood Signs. It's just a little stand on the main street.
We went with a pretty plain design, but we like it. :)
They do a great job and have fast turnarounds. Adding color takes a little longer. But most folks can get their signs in an hour to an hour and a half.
The top sign was $25. The RV-Dreams sign was $15 plus $7 for the color. So our total was $47. They have a really nice selection of sizes and designs for under $50.
After I returned to camp, the group gathered under the bright blue skies for fish tacos and some mexican side dishes.
And Pam & JoAnn both made brownies for dessert. I might have had more than my fair share of those. :)
By the way, since the stained glass windows seemed to be a popular topic, here are some pics of the various designs in the group.
I didn't make everyone shut their doors, so some of the photos are with doors open, and many of them are in the shade. :)
Most, if not all, were purchased in Los Algodones, Mexico at various shops and stands. Prices ranged from $37.50 to $50.00 depending on the design and vendor.
I didn't go, so I can't give directions. And upon inquiry, I was told there really weren't any shop names to help either. :)
On one hand, I can't believe how fast January went. On the other hand, I can't believe we've only been gone from the SKP Saguaro park for three weeks. It seems like ages since we were there.
Linda leaves tomorrow for several days of fun with the beading ladies in Benson. She showed me how to stand on my head to light the pilot light in the oven in case I wanted to heat up a frozen pot pie or something. :)
Other than that, I've got plenty of milk, bread, lunchmeat, cheese, brats, peanut butter, jelly, and frozen waffles. I think I can survive for at least a few days. :)
Have fun Honey, but hurry back! :)
