Gina,
Hello everyone!

Ann & I came in from "Nuestra Casita" about a 1/2 Hr. ago. It's snowing Other than the fact that we have friends coming from Desert Hot Springs and you folks contemplating your next moves, we need all the moisture we can get.

The county provided a FREE DUMP DAY yesterday, so we managed to make 2 runs
(each about 45 miles round trip), then watched our grandson's Cub Scout Pine Wood Derby Race. I'd anticipated maybe joining you just to renew acquaintances but by then I was about done in.

Slowly but surely, the remodel of our house is progressing. The game plan was to have the scaffolding picked up today, but the weather may complicate that.

Are you getting precipitation today? I hope your awning is rolled up so it's dry. If not, or it's snowing at home, you might want to leave your McMansion right there for another night.

Maybe you can get some lights installed yet.

Kurt & Ann K.

Kurt, no snow here, but I saw LOTS of cars coming down the hill with white roofs. I didn't check Rim this am, so I had no idea what I was coming up to. Figured if it was snow, I would turn around and go to Canyon RV, if for nothing else, the sleep in tomorrow LOL!

it drizzled all morning, turned to rain, but Lauren and I sat by the fire and watched everyone ring out thier tents and we slowly picked at cleaning up our stuff.

All my junk was UNDER the trailer, put it there last nite, so pretty much all I had to do was the inside and pack the bins.

Kitty decided the cheese was too tempting and knocked over the cans of pop on the table, so A little mopping was in order.. other than that, no biggy. THATS why I did the vinyl floor.. it will dry on it's own with no harm.

Fred and Robert had a social engagement in Temecula at 10, so when it was O Dark Thirty, they were hitched up. I opened my door to let the beasts out and they were ready to pull out!

A small rally with the usual suspects, but it was a fun time!

Thanks for coming Frank! It's always nice to have a new face.

So, Gina, other than the awning (which wasn't broke before you started) did you do any repairs??

I think I'm glad I missed this one. The weather has been nasty enough here where I'm repairing sprinklers and cleaning a closet. There is something ironic about having to wait for the rain to stop to replace the sprinklers.

Actually, Fred wanted to try to fix the spring inside that makes it self stow. That has never worked for me, BUT.. Just getting it safe to travel with was the priority.

When Uncle Sam gives me back my money this year, I will just get a whole new one.

Previous owner probably had a mishap with it, it was somewhat sproinged and mangled when I first set it up.

Finding the curved arms will be the key, or maybe they can re use the ones I have, but that is where MOST of the damage is.

Current one is green, and I want RED!!!!!

The FABRIC is the part of this awning that is in the BEST condition.

I initially thought that we might try rewinding the internal spring. However, after reading the dis-assembly procedure in the online tech manual, I think you are making a wise choice.

Yes, the Beverly Hillbillies were there in thier very own 17 foot Burro. Note the bedding all over the site, the duct tape holding the awning up, the flimsy outbuilding, and.. the final and all telling clue..

the Hound Dog on the table

So the spring "Spiff-'Em-Up Rally" became a slightly damp social gathering! Chalk the experience up to... any reason is a good reason for a rally, especially if it's attended by congenial friends.
Sorry we missed all of you,
Kurt & Ann K.

P.S.,
Welcome to our local bunch, Frank.

I thought I saw a "Bagel-Dawg" on the table.
Looked like he was guarding the site.

Hi Everyone .. I know you all had a great time camping.

We were on a Celebrity Summit ship 2 week cruise .. left 3/31 and returned home late Saturday night .. 12:00 midnight.. Started in Los Angeles, and ended in Fort Lauderdale. We were delayed 2 hours at the Dallas airport - not too bad with all the airport disruptions. Had a fantastic time on the cruise and a safe return home on American. Can't ask for anything better. Absolutely no complaints from us for the Celebrity cruise. Entertainment, food, crew, ports .. great.

I noticed that the Hildners were also on a cruise thru the Panama Canal. Ken and Chris, what ship were you on?

Carol and Jim

CarolnJim,

It would appear that you had a great trip! 2 weeks of a completely different atmosphere should alter one's perspective more than a little!
Welcome back to the FGRV world.
