When I last posted, we had switched gears and headed to Camp Red Bay in order to avoid the weather. Our travel from the Gulf Coast to Red Bay was without a problem and with only a hint of a misty rain.
We arrived on Friday evening and were excited to find that we would be assigned to a full hook up site...and one on the pavement at that. Life Is Good at Camp Red Bay!
When we were completely set up, I stood by the rule of "no cooking" on a travel day, so, we headed out for dinner. And, when in Red Bay...
Swamp John's is the place. We enjoyed dinner...salad, catfish, and baked potato. Yummy!
We were now settled in for the evening and the weekend. Saturday came with overcast skies that turned into on and off rain, but Sunday came with
more than a little rain. In fact for most of the afternoon we listened to the
beeping of the weather radio and watched the
radar on the computer.
Since we couldn't go outside to play, I decided today would be a good day to cook and bake...I made
a "no crust" pumpkin pie. Yummy!
Thank goodness, the really severe storms traveled either above us or below us. By nightfall all was clear.
Monday we woke to a heavy fog. Soon the sun was out and promised a great day with temperatures in the 80's.
Now, let's remember, here at Camp Red Bay, it's Monday morning and things are about to get busy.
First, everyone that has an assigned service bay starts pulling in slides, raising jacks, and cranking up by 6:45 am. They want to be in front of their assigned space when the bay doors go up at 7:00.
Then, for those of us who have just arrived, we wait for Norris to come with paperwork and let know what our wait looks like. Sure enough, he showed up around 8:00, and after he and Mark assessed our service issues, the front a/c unit and the gasket on the slide, it was decided that we could go into an express bay. The wait...only 3-4 days. Again, Life Is Good at Camp Red Bay.
Now, in addition to the items on our service list, I had a list of my own. So, I was off to see what I could schedule. The first stop was the cabinet shop. And, yes, they could fix me right up. Thanks Molly for the great idea!
The cabinets over the sofa on the passenger side has
way too much air space. And, I wanted two dividers and some shelves.
Danny said he could take care of the project tomorrow.
As promised, this morning, Danny showed up with tape measure in hand. He called after a little while, and, scheduled us to show up at
the cabinet shop at noon.
In no time at all, I had
just what I requested in two of the three cabinets.
While, Danny was working on the cabinets, I asked TJ if he would shine the counter tops. He did a great job buffing out the many little scratches that seem to appear from just daily use. He told me I should use car wax on them about every six months to keep them nice and shiny! That sounds like a perfect job for Mark. Something else for him to wax.
Once, we were finished in the cabinet shop, it was back to site #3. I vacuumed out the cabinets while Mark cut the mats to go on the inside. Then they were ready to be
I left one of the cabinets as it was for
for the larger items.
Having these shelves installed, allowed me to do some rearranging in the cabinets
on the other side of the motor home.
While I was busy rearranging and putting things away, Trevor came to start working on my second project...and with measurements in hand he was off, only to return a little while ago with
step covers and
a mat for the dash.
Thanks Trevor for a job well done...and again, Molly, great idea!
Wow...I am tired after all my projects today...I wonder what I can dream up for tomorrow?
