Well I can tell you that I was flying quite high last night after all the good news of the day. And I even got an email from Karen and Al with pictures from Google Earth of site 228 at Jojoba Hills. That was so nice of Karen to do that for me.
Site 228 is just to the left of center in this photo. It’s the one with the reddish brown rectangle. The site is up on a hill and overlooks two ponds below. With the park map I have, I thought it was a back in site, but with this view it looks like a pull through to me. I remember walking the road along the ponds with Emma every day I was there, and thinking the sites up above must have quite a nice view. I’ll see when I get there.
Sue and Mo finally made it to Harris Beach last night after their trauma of the blowout and having to be towed to Brookings. I was able to visit with Sue briefly, but they were pretty worn out from the ordeal. I should have guessed that this was a downward trend from the peak of my excitement.
This morning I began work on the 12 pages of documents I had been emailed from Jojoba to finalize the agreement of the lease. Those signed documents, and a couple of checks, have to be in their hands from me by Sunday or I lose the spot. First problem was that I don’t have a printer, so couldn’t print off the papers to sign. Second problem was getting my financial planner to transfer enough funds to my checking account so I could write the checks.
I got the financial planner working on the transfer of funds first, and then this morning I headed to town to find a place that could print the documents. I had noticed that there was a place in town that said they did copying, but do you think I could find it today? Nope. Just by chance I saw a little sign that said Harbor Copy and Sewing along the side of the road. I followed the directions to find a fountain in a small mall, and sure enough there it was. An elderly couple runs a little shop that does copying, and the wife also does sewing. What a combination! I love it when I stumble upon these unusual places. Not sure what hubby does, as the wife does all the sewing and did the printing for me off of a thumb drive that I brought along. Mission accomplished for two copies of everything for $2.40! We had a nice chat while I was there, and I think I’m going to have her recover my memory foam pad that I sit on to see out the window when I’m driving the rig. She did make the remark that I was rather short. Humph!
I also had an email from Sue this morning that she had become ill overnight, but was hoping to recover by the afternoon. The plan was for me to make a NY BBQ dinner for her and Mo this evening. Her plans to recover didn’t happen, so we’re postponing it a day. Bummer.
Then this evening, I went out to dump the tanks. Continuing the trend toward the valley of yesterday’s peak, the brand new Rhino Flex hose that I had installed last week came apart shortly after I pulled the black tank handle, , and spewed its contents all over my legs and feet! Oh s**t! (pun intended)
I think most RVers have a black tank ugly story to relate, but at least this time I just pushed the lever in instead of trying to reconnect the hose. (yes, I’ve made that mistake before as well) What a stinking mess! I used the outside sprayer to clean up myself and the area as well as I could, but Emma sure came to attention as I made my way back into the rig after leaving my shoes outside. I’m not sure the valley can get much lower tonight…
So, I leave you tonight with the washing machine going blue blazes and hope that tomorrow I can rise to another peak.
Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later, Judy
