Busy place

It's a busy place around here with the comings and goings of the humming birds, lots of refueling going on. 


This morning I went to the office and paid rent for the year.I decided to rent the space for a year because I am in the process of buying a car for running around while I'm down here in the Valley for the winter and since I won't tow it in the summer I'll need a place to stow it. Rent here is $1621.00 for the entire year, which works out to $135.00 per month and it's a secure gated park, so this was my best option.

Last night the Cards won game one of their series with the Giants and we do battle with them again tonight. This sets up a conflict because the Bronco game is on at the same time. I guess I'll have to put my split personality to work.

Other than that, there is very little happening around here. The park is still fairly empty, but people are just beginning to arrive for the season. Soon this place will be full of people joining us in enjoying the good life.

    1. The only hook is you need to pay for a full year to get that rate.

  2. Not too many places that you can get that kind of annual rent, and probably about the same as a storage place.

  3. Having a car this winter, might mean you'll wear yourself out driving around! :)

  4. Renting a spot at a storage yard would save some money but probably wouldn't have the security your park does. Secondly if for any reason you wanted to head back to the park before your normal time your spot is there waiting for you.

    On the other problem if you watch one game on the TV and stream the other game on your computer you'll see both games and really be able to Enjoy the Good Life.

    It's about time.

    1. Actually the way the rate structure is set up it is less than $200.00 for the summer 6 months.

      I will be streaming one of the games, the problem is me concentrating on two things at once.

    1. I know, this is a great park with weekly entertainment, lots of activities and really nice folks. 175 sites with about half of them occupied by park models. The rate is graduated, 6 months is a little over $1400 so it just made sense to spend the extra $200 for the entire year.

  8. Such a deal. I remember your posts from last year - seems there was always something fun happening at that park. Enjoy your season and good luck with the car purchase.

  10. That is a very good price you pay there. And you have so much going on all the time.

    Car will sure make life a little easier on shopping trips or site seeing.
