Short Post and Another Countdown


                              J D Grant County Park, east of San Jose CA

                                       March through September 2015

It’s hard to believe that another 6 months has flown by.  It will be less than  two weeks and I will be heading to my next workamping job in San Raphael, just north of San Francisco. I’ve checked with Ranger Dan and it’s a GO.  I will be picking up Ted after he’s done working on Saturday the 26th so that we only have one car to deal with.  I should have everything except last minute stuff packed and secure before I go to get him.  Sunday is the moving day.  Typically in most campgrounds, on Sunday it is a mass exodus by noon, so there shouldn’t be any problem maneuvering “My Spot II ”  into it’s next home for the winter. This will be the first time that I have worked with another a camp host.  There will be the two of us working a set schedule.  That should be nice to know when I will be working and when I can go do whatever I want to do.  They will probably be leaving in October, then I will be alone until probably February when there will another camp host arriving.

There are a few things that I am working on to improve on the livability of my MH.  One is to increase the seating in the living area,  The area where the two chairs are for driving and as passenger are usually just wasted space when I’m parked for any length of time. They do swivel around to face backwards, so I am in the process of creating a bench across the two of them.  I will be able to use it as a lounge when it is finished. ( No pictures yet.)  I also want to build a shelf or desk, but something for all the electronic stuff (modem, printer, Wi Fi, charging station etc.) and get it off of the dinette table.

I might even get some painting done, walls and watercolors,  There are a lot of things that I want to do to personalize “My Spot II”.  With a schedule, I may just get some of it done.

In the meantime, I am enjoying the last few day here at Grant.  It has begun to cool off and the leaves and acorns are falling making lots of noise on the roof and awning,  Angel makes a bit of noise too, telling those squirrels to get out of her yard.

Last weekend we weren’t full, but almost, although it seems that the campers have settled down and therefore the campground was quiet, a definite change from a very busy and chaotic Labor Day weekend.

I hope that you all enjoying Autumn, it won’t be long before we are trying to stay warm.

Thanks for visiting
