The learning curve......

 6:51 am - Sunday - November 6th - Niland, CA - 51° F, 43% humidity, wind 3 mph out of the south by southeast......crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 76° F.  On this date in 2015 we were boondocking on the shores of Mono Lake, CA......↴

As of Saturday the boys (Bob and Casey) had been here since early Wednesday morning, and we had not yet rented a RAZR, and even though Bob is a self professed optimist, he was kind of resigned to that being still the case when he and Casey depart GNHS on Sunday to return to Durango for a couple of weeks.  TLE has been busy every day learning their office routines, while I have been getting familiar with the equipment.

First thing Saturday I installed the required 'flags' on each of the RAZR's (I know three of them are Kawasaki's, but RAZR has become the generic name for these things like Xerox became the generic name for all copiers large and small, so when I use the name RAZR I could be referring to an actual RAZR, or one of the Kawasaki's)...... up I set up our wash station on the far side of the Roadrunner building.....

The first one I washed

The pressure washer

.....we have to run our hose across the street to the hose bib behind the Roadrunner building.

I spent the rest of the day washing each of the RAZR's, and while that was going on we actually rented our first two RAZR' 2 seater for 2 hours, and another 2 seater for 7 hours, and before the end of the day we had rented one of the 4 seaters for a half day on Sunday, so things are beginning to get off the ground.   

As of Sunday (which is also the end of DST) TLE and I will be on our own, but just a phone call away from Bob, or Casey should we need assistance.  I think, for the most part, we are ready to handle things, but there will always be something that comes up for which we are not prepared, and that will be part of the continuing 'learning curve'.  

Saturday was our first full 8 hour day, and by the time we 'clocked out' a little after 5 pm we were tired, but in a happy place.  I took a quick shower, then went outside to light the Sea-B-Que in preparation for grilling another of those Top Sirloin steaks.  TLE added sautéed mushrooms, and spinach as sides, and we chased the food with a Zinfandel....the perfect end to a good day.

Thanks for stopping by!
