We had the perfect customers on Thursday. The first was a young, married couple who rented one of our KRXs for 4 hours (10 am - 2 pm), and the second an older married couple who rented our other KRX from 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm. Our initial good impressions of each couple were rewarded with no rescue calls, no accidents, and no breakdowns, plus they both returned about 15 minutes early.
Even though our first rental did not go out until 10 am, I was out early washing the two KRXs from Sunday afternoon. Had I been able to get to them Sunday I could have blown the dust off each of them, but I didn't, and it rained briefly Tuesday night....just enough rain to turn the dust into mud, which required a thorough washing. I had them both washed, detailed, air filters cleaned, tire air pressures checked, and oil levels checked by 9:15 am.
Once our first couple left the gate on their 4 hour tour I took a few things up to our storage CONEX, wiped down three of the RZRs, which are all rented on Saturday, and spent time in the trailer reorganizing the chaos that occurs over time when I don't have time to put everything away in its place.
Our 1 pm customer arrived at 12 pm, and we had them out on their 4 hour adventure by 12:30 pm. Once they were on their way I spent time watching the latest PGA tour event (Genesis Open) being held at Riviera Country Club about 15 miles west of L.A. on the Palos Verdes Peninsula....the big attraction this year? Tiger Woods is playing for the first time since The Open (British Open). Tiger played an up and down round, but finished with three straight birdies to get to 2 under par for the round....just 5 strokes off the lead. He looks the best I have seen him look since his terrible car accident, and seemed to get stronger, and limped less as the round progressed.
Our afternoon customers returned about 4:15 pm, and by 5 pm I had both KRXs cleaned using compressed air, fueled, with air filters cleaned by 5 pm. And thus ended another day in the lives of two 'vagabonders supreme'.
Thanks for stopping by!
