So, the Surfer-Boys had their campsite all set up and were sitting around the campfire when I stopped to talk to them (so they’d been there for a while). “Have you had a chance to pay yet?”, I say. They said they had not so I try to be helpful and offer to fill out the envelope for them while they pocket-dive for the cash. “Oh”, he says, “we have to go get some money.” I said, “Well you get to fill out the paperwork then.” We all laughed and he made some comment about just being here to relax and not think. They did put an envelope, with a check, in the Iron Ranger later that evening. The next day, they were gone in the morning but their tent was still there. I didn’t see them all day. I finally left an envelope with a note indicating that they were supposed to pay before checkout time if they were going to stay another night. They must have come back late at night. I did find another payment the next morning. I knew it was theirs because it was for site 55. The envelope said they paid $22, which is the correct amount. However, when I opened it, it had a check for $55. Hhhhmmm – site 55, $55? Oh well, at the same time all this was happening, there was a van parked across from them who didn’t pay. As I was heading to their site to tell them about their mistake, I noticed the same van. The Surfer-Boys pulled out before they saw me coming and the van went with them. So, they must have been together and the $55 was an attempt to pay for the van too. I say “attempt” because if they were paying for an additional site they are still short and if they were paying for an additional vehicle they were way over. Oh well, nothing is precise in La La Land. 🙂
We had to deal with this abandoned trailer in our campground last week. It took some calling around but the police tracked down the owner and they had it removed. Getting rid of these old trailers is an issue. But if you have the title, there are charities that will take them as a donation; whether they are usable or not. Here’s one that is nationwide: www.donate-car-for-charity.com/RV
I love the Fall sunsets from Tillicum Beach! Look at the cloud formations! (I can’t get the italics to turn off. Sorry!)
Somebody came in late last night and paid to camp. Here’s evidence, next to the Iron Ranger, that they came over the Alsea Hwy to get here! 🙂 What a gorgeous drive that is in the fall!
And, finally, if I’m going to live in Oregon, I’d better start dressing like it! Fred Meyer had these on sale and had a coupon for a free pair of boot linings. I told Don he’d be able to recognize me from a distance. He said the irridescent green raincoat was more of a giveaway.
Even though these have a fleece lining, they’re no match for my Raynaud’s. One walk around the campground this morning and my fingers and toes are white and numb. An hour back in the 5th-wheel and I’m still typing with numb fingers. Of course there IS frost on the sand dollar this morning! This is not my video but I found it when I googled sand dollar to see if it was one word or two 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRAfjvws13E
