Light Work Schedule

 

Our work schedule for the next few weeks will be kept to around 24 hours. During the week there is just a handful of campers but come the weekend all 128 sites will be full. That means Sunday will be a big day with most of them checking out.

We are still trying to get acclimatized to the elevation. We are getting better but the dry air is making it hard to sleep at night. We are not huffing and puffing as much as we were. Every once in a while if we move too fast we will get light headed, and dizzy. More than normal!

Our electrical service panel was ordered and Ron from D&R Family RV should get it today. He is planning on driving up from Phoenix on Friday to install the panel. We will be so glad to get power back to the rig properly. We have cords running everywhere and we are always tripping over them.

Last Monday we took the Jeep off road for the first time. We picked some very easy trails and followed the “Gold Fever Trail”.  It is a loop of about 12 miles that takes you through the Holcomb Valley where gold was discovered. It was a nice drive with pretty views.

As we climbed the mountain the drop off got steeper and we went around a corner

It opened up with a nice view of Baldwin Lake

Coming back down the mountain was fun and I really like how the Jeep felt “sure footed”. It would just tractor up small hills and crawl down the other side. Lots of fun.

I have listed the Goldwing for sale on Craigslist and I will also be advertising it in Cycle Trader magazine. Hopefully we can get it sold pretty soon. We need the room!

Enjoy Your Day!

Wow that must have been a tough decision to give up the bike! Hope you sell it soon.

Being east coast flatlanders, we found the biggest adjustment at 7700 feet elevation last year was the dryness. We bought a small humidifier from WalMart and used it in the bedroom at night and it really helped a lot.

Sounds like a terrific place to be for awhile. Forgot that Bear Lake was up there in elevation!

Lovely campground and area for your camp hosting position this summer. Hope all your electrical issues are soon a thing of the past and no more gremlins pay you a visit!
