We'll start with a couple of things I forgot yesterday. :)
First, a couple that got their Keystone Cambridge fifth wheel the same time we did are going off the road for awhile. They contacted us to let us know they are selling their Cambridge for a great price and asked us to spread the word. Here is the link to the ad for the Cambridge on RV Clearing House. Their Chevy 3500 truck is for sale as well.
Second, Linda spoke at length last night with Karen - our boss, friend, and "family" from the V.A. Poma Ranch where we worked last summer. Linda says Karen has been working hard for the opening of the season, but she feels in control with much less stress due to much of the work we did last year. That's so nice to hear.
She also has RV-Dreamers as one workamping couple for this year. :) Unfortunately, the other couple she had coming backed out at the last minute due to family health issues. Hope she gets some replacements.
On with our day.
Randy and I did the morning round on another beautiful day. Not much going on in the campground.
After that, we moved one of the rental boats to a new slip making room for Katrina & Des's pontoon boat. We needed to get the pontoon boat in the water so the marine place can pick it up next week. The trailer for the pontoon boat we have is not road-worthy - it's sort of an antique. :)
As usual, when Randy says he needs to get something done, especially if it takes two people, I push to do it now while it's fresh on our minds. I talked him into going ahead and getting the pontoon in the water and in its slip.
He said he had a hard time with it last year, because he had to work on the trailer to get the pontoon to slide off into the water. But this year, it slid right off and I pulled it into the slip.
We tied it off and that was it. Done. Mark that off the list. :)
A few Bald Eagles were hanging around in the trees near the dock this morning. Wish I'd had the camera with me. It was as close as I've been able to get to them.
After we put the boat trailer back in place and cleaned up around the trailer spot and the shop, I tightened a toilet seat in one of the cabins - a pretty easy task I have done before. :)
Then I went and got the fish remains and picked up another couple of carp that floated up near the docks. That's probably why the eagles were hanging out. While the eagles can catch fish on their own, they are kind of lazy. They prefer to scavenge or wait for an Osprey to catch a fish and harrass them into dropping it. :)
By then it was time to do bathrooms. And it was time to start the weekly ritual of scrubbing showers, baseboards, and the stall walls. I did the basic cleaning of the bathrooms and the stall partitions while Randy did the harder work of the showers and baseboards.
I got in on the baseboards as well when we did the men's side. While we were cleaning the women's side, I went in search of another spray bottle.
On my way back, I had to stop and help one of our seasonal couples. They were moving their boat and the boat trailer popped off their hitch - they didn't have a bolt pin in.
It was a terrible sound, but it didn't appear to cause any damage. I helped them get re-hitched and sent them on their way. They were a little shaken. :)
It took Randy and I about three hours to clean both bathrooms. By the time we were finished, I could see why he doesn't like to do the weekly scrubbing of both bathrooms on the same day. That's hard work. Maybe we'll figure out a schedule where we can split it up.
It was about 2:30 by the time I went to lunch. After lunch, there wasn't much left of the day for me.
Linda had cleaned the rig this morning and was well into her shift in the office. She was once again in organization mode, making things easier for the office workers.
I finished my day by washing our cleaning rags and making a trash run. I was stopped by a couple of folks that told me they were impressed with how clean the bathrooms are. Well, that was very nice. :)
After my shift, I got a shower, called my folks, and took Linda some dinner. I also took a little walk to get some pictures. I was hoping to get some bird shots, but settled for a shot of our canoes and kayaks tied up on the shoreline ....
and a shot of the Library.
The Library, which sits across the road from the office contains several books and a modem to hook up to the internet, was actually the original Chester jail from the 1920s. During a flood of the North Fork of the Feather River which runs through Chester, the jail washed out into the lake. It was retrieved and put to use in the campground. :)
After my walk, I returned home and worked on May financials well into the night. Linda got busy in the office right at shift end, and she came home sometime after 8:30.
I also checked in on the RV-Dreams Group in Facebook and found that the membership had swelled to over 100. Wow. :)
But it's still a long way from our Forum membership which is currently at 1,456 with almost 17,000 posts on over 2,000 topics. We're very proud of the Forum and our Forum members who politely welcome newcomers and answer all sorts of questions. :)
Well, that's another busy, miscellaneous day under our belts. :)
