time flies!

Wow, this past week time has gotten away from me. Seems like I no more get started with the day and it's over! We did take some time for a bike ride Saturday afternoon. We rode to our old hometown of Lebanon where they were holding a Goldwing motorcycle rally. We arrived too late to participate in the rally events but did get to spend some time with all of our old biking buddies and that was what we were wanting to do anyway.

Here at the KOA things are ramping up for Memorial Day week end. The owner has offered a bonus for taking on an extra project so Rudee and I have been trying our hands at some "beautification", We are spiffing up the visitors parking area. We have been working on it for the last several days on our off hours and are just about finished with it. I will post some before and after photos soon but here is a quick before shot taken on my iphone.

We worked last evening (Wednesday) and were kept busy by arriving campers. The majority of them were here for one night and then moving to Indianapolis to boondock near the track. Seemed like I no more led one camper to their site and Rudee was calling me on the radio telling me to come back to the front for another escort! One of the "extra" things the campground does is pass out fresh baked cookies to our newly arrived campers. Rudee bakes them in an oven in the office and I deliver them to the campsites once they get settled in. The campers really enjoy getting a treat and it's a lot of fun for me to deliver them and, if time allows, I get to chat awhile as well.

We have some more to do on our little project before going into work at noon. Hopefully we can get everything done and can start enjoying our time off again. I'll keep you posted.


  1. What a nice touch! Like staying the Doubletree!

  2. Sounds like a good KOA with the little touches to make guest feel welcome.
