Those of you who don't "do" facebook might not have seen that we hit a milestone yesterday and that Travel with Kevin and Ruth now has over 500 facebook fans! We're pretty excited about that!
It's a little busier here at the campground this weekend. I think we've got 12 sites occupied. And the day use area was busy too with lots of people fishing.
I gotta ask two questions. Does wearing camouflage clothing really help when you're fishing? And do they wear their fishing vest when they're hunting? Just wondering.
We had eight cords of firewood delivered yesterday. We go through a lot of wood here at the campground because every paid night includes a bundle of firewood. Plus, quite a few people buy extra.
We'll probably need another load like this half way through the summer.
We don't need to stack the wood that was delivered up to the compound, but we do bring a load down to the shed at the campground just to have it close at hand.
Hard at work!
Ruth finished the site cleanup she was doing at #24. We forgot to take a "before" picture, but if you look at the pic above you'll see they have a nice view of the lake. Prior to Ruth's hard work, you could not see the lake from this site because of all the underbrush and dead trees and branches. I think we brought about eight truckloads of stuff out of there!
We have now gone 33 days without a day off. We tried to take it easy yesterday, but stuff kept coming up. What kind of stuff comes up? Well, here's a good one...we have a two room changehouse down at the beach. From the outside, it looks like it could be an outhouse. Without getting into too much detail, someone apparently thought it was an outhouse and the fact that there wasn't a toilet seat inside didn't change their opinion! This was not a child by the way!
But, children will be children. They think it's funny to go into the washroom building and into a toilet stall. They then lock the door and crawl out the tiny opening under the door. Not so easy for an adult! I figured a way to reach over the top and unlock it.
Then, I was called to a site that complained of having no electricity. Hm, that's strange, I thought. At these sites, they have a post that has both 30A RV outlets and 15A household outlets. These were tenters, and sure enough, there's no power at the 15A outlets. So, I go get some tools and take it apart. The wires were all cut at the plug! Why? Well, it turns out the plug was bad. Been like that for a while though from all the spider webs and crap in there. So rather than replace the plug, they just cut the wires to it. Strange. I replaced the plug. Working fine now.
Our picnic table boneyard.
After lunch, I went up and fixed up a picnic table. The one that a tree had fell on that you can see on the right in that picture. I replaced all the top boards and I'll get a coat of paint on it at some point today.
Ruth got a picture of this young beaver swimming close to shore.
