6:28 am - Saturday - New Years Eve - GNHS - 49° F, 100% humidity, wind 6 mph out of the southeast......partly cloudy today with a forecast high of 63° F.....chance of rain this evening. On this date in 2015 TLE and I joined our kids out at Ocotillo Wells to ring in the New Year....that's us in the red circle......↴
What a day Friday was.....we began the day with 4 bookings....not a bad day....and then added two 'walkups' for a total of 6 rentals.....4 RZRs and 2 KRXs.....3 were all day rentals, 2 were half day, and one for 2 hours. We opened the office at 7:30 am, and I don't think either of us stopped to take a break until after 11 am. The 2 hour rental returned just after 12 pm, and we were once again busy for the rest of the afternoon.
On installing the new drive belt in RZR #4, I had to call Kyle for assistance after struggling for 20 minutes to do the job. A special tool is required, which is included in the tools we were given by Bob and Casey, but it doesn't work very well. Kyle has a tool he bought, which does the same thing, but is easier to use. Once Kyle arrived with his tool it took less than 2 minutes to install the belt. I went on Amazon and found the tool he has for $9, so I ordered it. I need to be able to install those belts myself, as Kyle is not always available.
Once all 6 UTVs were out in the field TLE and I spent much of our time answering questions from more 'walkup' folks, and I think TLE ended up booking two of them for Saturday and Sunday.
By 3 pm three of the rentals had returned, and by 4:30 pm all had returned. I had the final 3 washed, fueled and put away by 5:30 pm....while I washed, TLE drove them down to the fuel station, otherwise I would not have finished until closer to 6....thank you TLE!
As I type I know that all 7 of our UTVs are booked for today, Saturday, and we both know it will be another very busy day.
Thanks for stopping by!
