Let the noise begin.....

6:28 am - Saturday - October 28th - GNHS - 59° F, humidity 72%, wind 4 mph out of the south by southeast......crystal clear, blue sunny skies today with a forecast high of 84° F.  On this date in 2017 TLE and I were enjoying another sunset at Lone Rock, UT......↴ 

Friday was our first multi unit rental day.  The new tablet based check-in system worked wonderfully and we had all three units rented and on their way with 15 minutes, at which time I began to ferry one RZR after another over to our wash station to wash them for the first time since they were assembled.  Around 11:30 am I had finished washing the 5th RZR, and decided to leave the rest, including the company van, for Saturday, and took off until around 3:30 pm.  TLE continued to 'track' the rentals, and was available for emergency phone calls during that time.  Hunter was out breaking in the final RZR.  

All three rentals were of the 'all day' variety, so we were not expecting them to return until sometime between 4 and 5 pm.  Around 4:50 pm they began to roll in one at a time, and shortly thereafter I began to wash them, then top off their fuel tanks before putting them away for the night.  By the time I finished the last RZR it was 6 pm, the sun was down, and I was ready for a shower.  

It was a nice, uneventful rental day with no breakdowns, or emergency phone calls....uneventful is that for which we strive in the rental business.  Everyone returned with smiles upon their faces, and nothing but praise for how well the machines performed.  Saturday will see another 3 RZRs going out all day, and Sunday will have two, so it has been a good Halloween weekend rental wise.  Of course, with the first big weekend of the winter season comes the attendant rise in noise level going into all hours of the night.  Thankfully, it is so quiet the other four days you can 'hear a pin drop', which makes up for the noisy weekends.

Thanks for stopping by!
