Roll the tape back to Friday, January 3. Bill and Teri Burch's taxi arrived at exactly 2:00 PM. We helped them load up and waved good by. We had been re-loading the camper for the past two days and as soon as they turned the corner heading to the airport, we tossed the final items into the truck, hooked up the trailer and then drove to our next adventure at the lot that we rented.

We arrived and immediately unhooked the trailer and guided it, by hand, into the lot and to the location we felt was the best for it. I then backed up and turned the truck into the lot and aimed it into our projected camper spot. Two days prior we had drawn maps of the lot and talked about what direction we would need to face. Heading straight in was chosen as our best possibility.

Back into the truck and then things went back to bad. I moved the truck and in doing so I made more tracks in the sand. I was a bit frustrated and, try as I might, I could not get the truck up on the lifts. The levelers kept moving , or the truck couldn't find purchase and pull up on the platforms. Linda and I were beyond frazzled.

Our water is a bit erratic. Sometimes it flows, sometimes it doesn't. We were able to get the camper tank filled once so far, but we are starting to wonder if the water will flow sometime soon so we can fill it back up. We only use that water to shower and do dishes, our drinking water is purchased from vendors and comes in big bottles.
Linda found the sewer hookup and we have tested to make sure we can reach and dump our gray water. We use the toilet in the patio bathroom for most everything else.
More to come later.
