Monday January 31, 2011-Mission West RV Resort

We've been sleeping later and staying inside in the morning. It's nice to be able to lay around instead of going to work, but we still like working at Timber Ridge. We like the variety of our life and take advantage of times like these.

After we ate breakfast, we went out to some more RV parks to distribute flyers for the upcoming events for Heartland, but the several people that I met today had not heard of the owners forum, the Heartland club, and of course, had no idea of the potluck dinner or the dealer open house. I told them about the forum and the club and invited them to the events and they all said they would talk it over with their husband or wife and see if it worked into their schedule.

We returned to the park in time to go eat hamburgers at the large rally hall. They only serve burgers on Monday afternoon, but man, they really do a big business of them. I was told that last Monday they served over 600! That's 60o orders, which generally consist of two burgers, so it's a staggering amount of food and gives you an idea of how much of an economic impact the winter Texans have on this area. This is a pretty small park, so just imagine what it could do if there were more advertising.

We came back home and sat outside in the nice evening air. We're told that its going to get cold later in the week, so we want to get outside as much as we can. Everyone that walks by always wave and are very friendly. That seems to be the way of most of the RVer's down here.

So long.
