She had a busy day, appointments all day long, so I'm sure the day went fast. After work Matt picked her up and they got the kids and went to Drew's T-Ball game. When I called her at 8:00, she was home and doing fine. She said she's not worried about driving tomorrow, so she should be fine.
I stopped at Bed, Bath and Beyond to get some full-sized sheets for the bunk, then a little grocery shopping, then to Costco for cherries. After returning to Kristy's to leave her car there, I washed and dried the sheets so they would be ready to put on the bed at the RV park. When the sheets were dry, it was check-in time at the park, so we drove over. It's about 10 15 minutes from their house. Nice and close!
We checked in around noon and spent the rest of the day getting hooked up, dumping tanks, filling up the water tank, etc.
Note to newbies: in a site where you can pull in head first or back in, figure out whether or not your sewage hose will reach to the sewer before getting everything else set up. I went in head first, got all my cords and water hose attached, leveled the rig, and was all set up when I attached the sewer hose and, wow, I had about half the hose I needed to reach the sewer outlet. I have two hoses, but they wouldn't reach. So I had to unhook everything, go out and back in, and start all over again. Backed in I only needed one of my sewer hoses. I won't make that mistake again. I'm not sure what the temps were this afternoon, but I'd guess low 80s. I was too hot and too tired to be doing all this twice.
I vacuumed The Palms, washed the floors, got everything out and organized, put the new sheets on the mattress and made up the bunk. Finally showered, I was still hot, but with the A/C it didn't get out of control, and when I sat down to relax, I was really comfortable. I was too tired to make dinner, so I had a big bowl of sweet cherries, I love Costco cherries. It's the beginning of the cherry season, so I'll be having them for lunch or dinner a lot for a while.
It's after 10 now, and I'm about ready for bed, the day flew by! Katie is already asleep in the bunk.
Here are some photos of the park I took today when we were out for our walk:
Vineyard RV Park has free cable, free wi-fi (works really well), two laundry areas, 2 off-leash dog walks, horse shoe pits, rest rooms, showers, propane filling station, and clubhouse. There are large shade trees in the older area, but the new sites where I am have smaller, new trees, but this new area has free cable. I can't figure out how to get the cable working, but my antenna works well here. I'm going to tackle the cable tomorrow. I have the cable hooked up, and have to find the switch to turn the antenna/cable off and on.
For those commenters who suggested plugging my electric cord into an outlet in the compartment so the generator can run the A/C, I checked and I don't have a plug. Only phone/cable hookups in the electrical compartment where the cord is stored. But it does say on the outside of the cargo door that the plug works with 120, so I was fine plugging into the house and running the A/C. My rig might be different than yours with a different electrical set-up. But thanks - it was worth a try.
Good night, everyone - from Me and My Dog! : )
