This last week we have been very busy. The campground is full on the weekends but we are getting quite a few campers in during the week. For the most part it has been enjoyable. Sundays are really tough when the whole campground checks out and we have to go and clean and rake each site. This only takes us about 10 minutes each site but if the fire pit is over half full we have to clean it out. That is time consuming and the ashes can get pretty heavy.
Most of the campers are fun and are great to interact with. There are a few however that we wished would just go back to the city. They just can not seem to follow any campground rules at all. We had to tell one group to please put their pet on a leash four times within 3 hours. Keep the music to a level that would not cause the windows to break 5 campsites away. Plus they got into a domestic dispute and let the whole campground in on their issues. Plus they decided to trash the restrooms and break some things. For the most part though everyone has been great. It is just that one percent that ruins it.
We took the Jeep in for service last Monday and we are picking it up this morning. Hopefully the head change will be our last issue for awhile. I would like to at least get past the first oil change before any other gremlin pokes it head up.
We also got a call on our motorcycle that is for sale from a dealer in Chino California that will sell it on consignment. He only has a 10 percent flat fee and has a lot more traffic coming into his store than we could get up here on the mountain.
We were all set to take it to him today as we picked up the Jeep, but we got a call from a guy on Sunday and he and his wife came up to look at it. He does not have his motorcycle endorsement but knows how to ride and plans on taking the Motorcycle Safety Course to get his license. I took both him and his wife on a ride and they really liked it. They said they needed to discuss it and would call us back later in the evening. They called us about 6:00pm and told us that they wanted the bike. We told them that we could deliver it since he does not have his license yet and they are pretty close to us.
It is going to be hard not having the motorcycle. I have had one since I was 7 years old and motorcycling has always been a big part of my life. So I will probably go through an identity crisis for awhile. I will have to change the blog title and change our contact cards. We will no longer be Wandering Wingers. I will have to come up with something.
So today we will take our last ride as we deliver the motorcycle. I will ride it to the Jeep dealer to pick up the Jeep and then Max will ride it to the new owners house. We will sure miss it, but it will be for the best and we will open a new chapter with the Jeep.
Goodbye Old Friend
Enjoy Your Day!
