Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

A Wild & Crazy Weekend

Monday morning and no one is at the pool for their last swim before leaving.
Not a soul anywhere which means we have the pool to ourselves tonight.

The Jet Skis were out in force

There were crazy boaters everywhere and it was funny watching some of them trying to get their boats on the trailers and up the ramp. There were a few with two wheel drive pickups that couldn't make the grade and had to be towed by the John Deere.

Boats, boats, everywhere there's boats.
More boats until...........

What a difference a couple of hours makes. They've all gone home!
The place was packed and it was my day to do site cleaning. Twenty sites later there were still a lot of people to go.

This gentleman was camped close to us and as he was getting ready to leave, his slides wouldn't come in and his jacks also refused to come up. I was lucky enough to find a couple of burnt out fuses and we got the slides to work.

But.......we were not able to get the jacks to retract, even in the "Emergency Mode" which requires driving the pump by attaching a drill to the end of the pump motor. Well, long story short we were able to retract by running the drill on the motor shaft and prying up under the jacks. Two hours later, my buddy was on his way. I hope he made it home ok!

The day is over and I am burnt out but everyone seemed to enjoy their first holiday weekend. Tomorrow I mow......I hope that snake isn't still hanging around the mower.

I just hate it when the slides and jacks will not cooperate.
