We had one UTV rental Tuesday for 1/2 day beginning at 12 pm....aka: noon. The trouble with having one 1/2 day rental beginning at 12 pm is that we open the office at 9 am, take care of a few things, and then just hang around until the customer arrives. We open at 9 am to be available for any walkup customers. Once we open we're committed for the entire day, as we must be readily available if our one customer has an issue out in the desert, and we must rescue them. Personally, I would rather be super busy as time appears to pass more quickly. I know it really doesn't, but being distracted with being busy makes it seem so, right?
There are always plenty of tasks around the 'lido deck' with which to pass the time, like fixing the bay door to the Norcold cubbyhole, out of which it slides in and out as the need arises to pilfer some of its contents for human consumption. Over the past year the 7 rivets which afix it to the aluminum skin of the Newell had worked their way loose, so I needed to drill them out and install new pop rivets. I can perform this task while keeping eye on the office parking lot for potential customers. It took me less than an hour to drill out the old rivets one at a time, mind you, to keep the bay door hinge in place, while I installed each new rivet in its place.....
