Saturday September 5, 2009-Priest Gulch RV Resort

Another low 40's morning here. I'm glad we bought the new heater, and it's working well. It keeps the living room/kitchen area warm and the propane heater doesn't have to work as hard.

We are losing our neighbors, Rusty and Linda. They are moving to another location in the park because there was someone that had reservations for this site earlier. They are a very nice couple and I'm sure that we'll see them again before they leave for good.

An hour or so after Rusty and Linda left, the new couple arrived. Bob and Sheila are from Farmington NM and arrived for the weekend. It turns out that Sheila is originally from Galveston too, although her family left the island when she was a baby. We had a nice visit with them while Bob was setting up the trailer.

Stella and I went to Cortez to have the truck serviced and to go back to Wal Mart for some items that we had forgotten. We went to the Mobil Easy Lube where the oil change was performed. While checking the truck, the technician found that the rear differential oil was low and very black, so I told them to change it as well as the front differential. On our four wheel drive truck we have differentials both front and rear. When the work was completed, the truck was much more smooth and easy to drive. I'll have to monitor the truck very well from now on.

We got our Wal Mart purchases made and came back home. Along the way, I stopped at the Dolores River RV Park so I could check on workamping at the park. I spoke with a nice lady in the office and filled out a sign-in sheet with my name and contact information on it so the owner can review it for consideration. She told me that she thought their camphost positions were filled but it might be a good idea to have a backup plan.

We came on back home in the rain. It rains every day up here in the mountains, but today was heavier than the past few days. It continued cold and rainy all afternoon, so we stayed inside where it was warm. I did readjust the dish to pick up a few channels again, so that was a good thing. We have something, although limited, to watch on the television.

Our new neighbors, Bob and Sheila, invited us to eat some fresh Texas watermelon that they had brought up with them. We had a nice visit with them until about 9 o'clock, when it began to rain again. We came back home and watched a little TV and retired for the night.

So long.
