Well, almost done with the wax removal and re-waxing of the RV. I do indeed have all the old wax off and new Meguiars wax on all sides, the front, and back and even under the hitch overhang. I even waxed all the sides on the slides to help them move easier against their seals.
I now want to add another layer of wax on the front and back cap to help protect them from UV rays. That will be an easier job with the wax layer I already have on those two ends.
Since I haven’t posted in some time, I will try to bring this up-to-date.
I worked Rancheros Visitadores from May 1 until May 11th and it seemed like a very easy year. No real problems to speak of. It helps to have a crew that has worked together for several years.
When we finished on the 11th we broke camp and packed up all of our stuff. However two of us were moving on to Lake Lopez for another 5 days of camping with a large group. I didn’t need all the camping gear I use at Rancheros so Craig brought Clyda up to where I was working, so she could go with me, and took home a trailer full of the things I wouldn’t need. I still had plenty of extra things but those were manageable.
We drove to Lake Lopez and camped in the Quail full hookup campground. I actually had a pull through site which was very nice. Eventually everyone else showed up. We had 17 people in all. A good group with lots of laughs around the campfire at night.
We had been warned about the possibility of bears raiding our campsites and per usual, we forgot to empty trash a couple of nights so it got scattered by something. One night I had left an ice chest outside my door on a table with some cool packs and a few ears of corn in it. In the middle of the night a noise work me and I knew it was the ice chest hitting the ground. I jumped up and opened the door to see a large black bear at the bottom of my steps. I drove him away but he had dumped all the corn out so I managed to get that back in the ice chest and put it in the RV. In the morning I discovered that the bear had bitten everyone of the ice packs and in fact I never found one of the soft sided packs. I presumed he ate it. No corn was eaten. A very selective bear I guess.
From Lake Lopez we moved on to Morro Strand RV Park for four days of camping with our Eugene Oregon friends who were on an extended RV trip. A great time was had by all. They are so easy to camp with. Very laid back.
So, we are back to a more normal routine. I work at the Elks Lodge on Saturday mornings in the woodlot, selling wood, stacking wood, and cleaning up the woodlot. It is 4 hours of manual labor but for a good cause. The proceeds help with lodge expenses. We are short handed in the summer time so last Saturday I was pretty much it. I loaded and sold 2 pickups full of eucalyptus and also delivered one of those loads to a customer.
I have my garden planted, at least what I intend to plant for now. I am looking for some Anaheim chili plants yet but so far haven’t found any. I tried seeds but none of them sprouted.
The Boysenberries are looking good. Lots of berries on the vines right now. We still have one bag left in the freezer from last years crop.
