12:18 pm - Friday - October 28th - GNH - 75° F, 15% humidity, wind 4 mph out of the west.......crystal clear, sunny skies, still, with a revised forecast high of 78° F.
Earlier today I put up a post with the title "It's over....."....you'll be relieved to know nothing bad happened, and we have not left GNHS. What was really over for us was site #225, where we had been since we arrived on October 17th. I know I was being deliberately obscure with my title, and post, but I couldn't resist.
Until about 11 am on Thursday, we thought we would be in site #225 for the next 5 months, but then we got a call from Bob at Colorado Outback Adventures (our new employer beginning November 2nd) asking us if we would consider moving to what is called an 'overflow' site next to the community room (Roadrunner). He said if we would he would pay for our site, including the electricity, for the rest of our stay. We said we would go take a look at it, and get back to him in about an hour. Here is what we found......
....kind of austere, right? Just a bunch of asphalt, and gravel......there is, obviously, no 'it' factor, which is that for which we look....at least not at first blush, but there's that tree in the corner of the lot (2nd picture above) provides shade from about 11 am until late in the afternoon over much of the site. We spent time measuring from every possible angle trying to figure out how to stage the coach and trailer in way which affords us maximum privacy, of which we have none in site #225. After spending about 45 minutes figuring out what would work, we decided pretty quickly that we would make the move Friday morning, and called Bob back to advise we had accepted his offer.
That was pretty much the extent of our day, except for planning how to move everything as quickly as possible, with the least amount of effort, and I'm pretty sure we have a good plan for Friday morning. We shall see how easy it will be to execute the 'plan'.
Tomorrow will come pictures of our new site, and how we have created a new 'lido deck' environment we love even more than what we did in site #225!
Thanks for stopping by!
