We went on a walk first thing this morning. This seems to be like a well-organized community. Today someone had all the garbage brought to the tent, (the blue awning) where it was loaded and hauled to the dump. We got talking to some of the campers about their heaters. They really liked their Kozy World blue flame heater. We decided to go to town to check them out. First we went to pick up our Escapee name tags from Too Crazy Ladies. We are now official members of the Boomers and Escapees. Then we went to the RV place that sells the heaters. It got time to go to the Escapees happy hour, so we told the RV
people we would be back.
There were quite a few people at the Escapee meeting. They had singers, and pitch-in lunch. I think everyone had a good time. Lots of food for sure. After eating, we saw a sign for the Boot Camp at Congress, Arizona. I decided to talk to them because we had wanted to go to it, but we were on the waiting list. The man in charge said we were probably on the waiting list because they couldn't promise RV sites with hook-ups, but if we could boondock, he was sure we could go. He said he would call the lady in Texas that is in charge and see what could be done. About ten minutes later, I got a call from her. She said if we were willing to boondock, we were more than welcome to come to the Boot Camp. They both reiterated that there was still a possibility of get full hook-ups, but couldn't promise at this time. So on January 31st we are headed to North Ranch, the Escapee Park in Congress.
After all this, we went back to the RV place and bought the heater and what hoses I thought I needed to hook it up. I got one of the hoses too long, and will have to get the right one tomorrow, but I got it going---toasty inside the rig now.
We went back to Boomerville in time for their happy hour. They had everyone introduce themselves. There are now 62 rigs here. I don’t know how that compares to other years, but we are getting a lot of people here. I forgot to mention, it was considerably warmer today.
After I got the heater installed as far as I could, we were invited over to a camp-fire with 3 other couples and stayed for almost two hours. It was nice to sit under the stars and talk about where people have traveled. We got some ideas for our trip to Alaska this summer. One of the couples is from Alberta, and are going to give us a list of things to see and do in Alberta.
