Here are some old drinking fountains (or for Wisconsinites termed "BUBBLERS") and some old bike racks, and the fire ring we just added to the pile.
This area has rotted out rusted grills from the picnic area
and some concrete parking lot bumpers.
Another piece of equipment ALMOST ready for the graveyard if Steveio has his way is my precious Cub Cadet! Seems the new spark plug and oil change he did doesn't help much, because the carburetor is all preset from the factory and not adjustable. So he is going to check on replacing it. Last night we were using it to clean grills and firepits, and it kept coughing, sputtering and choking up. Lots of black smoke out the tailpipe too.
Soooooo Steveio switched over all my campsite cleaning gear to this wonderful Polaris!!!! wheee heeee more horsepower for up the hills and by the cliff! Plus the back box is bigger and I don't have to stack my buckets up when they get full.
I think it like it better---- it has cupholders for my coffee mug, and a HEATER on a cold morning, plus window defogger and windshield wipers. Wow... I am really moving up in the world!
It's the middle of the month now, halfway through our camphosting gig here at High Cliff. I can honestly say we are having fun and it's been a good experience. Some of the questions we got this week were:
"If I put my park sticker on the outside of the car windshield instead of the inside is that okay?"
(your windshield wash fluid will remove the adhesive, so go get a replacement at the office)
"Do you know if the lake is shallow or deep?"
(ummmm both? shallow around the edges and deep in the middle----)
"Can the raccoons get into my tent?"
(let's put your food inside and set back in our lawnchairs to watch----)
Yesterday I got some more hot pads done in time for my craft sale the first weekend in September. I am sharing a booth with Jim and Norma of Pa and Ma's Rugs (read my last blog post about them). Next I am going to get a bit more attention to my sock knitting and get more pairs ready.
And that is another day in the Life of a Campground Host!
