7:59 am - Monday - January 23rd - GNHS - 48° F, humidity 25%, wind 17 mph out of the northwest....crystal clear, blue, sunny skies today with a forecast high of 62° F.....Santa Ana winds blowing fiercely....was windy all night long. We had to stow our patio awning for the first time in almost 2 months. On this date in 2019 we overnighted at the Route 66 Casino and Hotel just off I-40, 21 miles west of Albuquerque, NM....first time back in Mountain Time since April of 2018......↴Our two KRX 1/2 day rentals were not scheduled to begin until 11:30 am Sunday, but I was outside Sunday around 9 am to refuel one RZR, and wash three RZRs from Saturday's 3 all day rentals. Since I had time, I took my time to thoroughly detail RZRs #1, 4 and 5, and was finished around 10:30 am.
Our customers arrived just before 11:30 am to complete their paperwork.....
.....and they were off in a cloud of dust just before 12 pm. I was pretty sure we would have no issues with them, but one just never knows for sure....lol.
While I was walking around KRX #8, the one that was in the rollover two weeks ago, I noticed something neither Kyle, TLE, nor I had seen when inspecting the unit for damage at the time of the accident.....the fiber glass flag pole was cracked in the accident......
....so I took a picture and texted it to Casey to add to the repair bill, then removed it to cut off the bad part, and reinstall it.
Next, for the first time since I bought it, I set up my golf driving net......
.....and hit a few balls just to see how much my skills have degraded since October. I got out my 3 wood, and hit about a dozen balls. Overall I was hitting them pretty straight, but I could already feel it in my lower back after just a dozen swings. I next got out my pitching wedge to practice chipping, and and really like it for that. There is a target with a bullseye on it, and I was able to hit the bullseye 7 out of 10 tries. Setting it up was kind of like setting up a tent, and didn't take that long.
Our customers returned just before 4 pm, with no damage, and with large smiles upon their collective faces, so another weekend without any rescues, or accidents.
The weather forecast was for Santa Ana winds to begin early evening, and they arrived just as predicted. I caught a couple of pictures of our sunset..........then collapsed my golf driving net and put an orange cone on it to keep it from blowing away in the night (it was still there this morning). Around 8 pm TLE and I stowed the patio and window awnings as it was getting quite blustery out of the northwest, which is not a good direction of wind for our location. As I write the coach is rocking in the wind, and will continue to do so for the next 6.5 hours (it is 8:30 am right now), so we'll be spending that time inside....glad we don't have any rentals today!
Thanks for stopping by!
