Wednesday, May 16 - Manny Pelayo installed a new awning over the drivers side windows. The old awning was showing lots of wear. He made it so that it can be drawn lower thus blocking afternoon sun. The draw down height can be adjusted to a half dozen settings. This completes the projects Manny started on May 4th. Click here to see the May 4th work. Total cost for all the work was $865.85.

Wednesday, May 16 - I played golf today with Paul Williams, Dave Hill and Harvey Booth at Oakway GC in Eugene. Paul is the CEO of Premier RV Resorts. Dave Hill is the manager of the Eugene resort. Harvey is a friend of Paul's. It was a cool morning but by the time we finished we were able take off our jackets. We had a nice lunch at the Coburg Crossing Cafe.

Tuesday, May 15 - It was a nice sunny afternoon so I took some photos of the Premier RV Resort. I will pass them along to the Lisa Hadley. She updates photos on the resort's web site. Click here to view that site. The resort is adding Nomadics tipis. The tipis will be furnished. Soon guests will be able to rent them. Click here to learn more about the tipis. Last year a kids play area and a putting green were installed. Just last week a golf driving cage was added. David and Lisa Hill are the managers of the resort.

Saturday, May 5 - From Wikipedia: Cinco de Mayo is an annual celebration held on May 5th. The date is observed to commemorate the Mexican Army's unlikely victory over the French Empire at the Battle of Puebla, on May 5, 1862. The Premier RV Resort, under leadership of managers David and Lisa Hill, holds an Annual Pot Luck Dinner to celebrate the day. The pavilion was decorated with an appropriate Mexican theme with two piņatas. Blind folded kids attacked the piņatas and when successfully opened treats are dumped on the floor. A chain saw blender was used to make delicious Margaritas. Click here to see a YouTube video of a chain saw blender in operation. There were about 50 people who attended the event. Some of the photos were provided by Lisa Hill.

I especially liked the Coburg Pizza Company Pettine's Margherita pizza.

Saturday, May 5 - Today I purchased an AcuRite Pro Color Weather Station with Wind Speed. I am most interested in the wind speed feature. There are times when I need to take evasive action when there are high winds - put up awnings - pull in slide outs. To mount it I bought a 12 inch diameter piece of plywood. And bought some white Flex Seal to coat the plywood. All items were purchased at the local Lowe's hardware store. Total cost $99.96.

Friday, May 4 - Manny Pelayo performed a number of service items on the motor coach. Including replacing two thermostats. They were giving incorrect readings. He also serviced the Hydro-Hot system - it heats water and powers the furnace. Other items: 1. The refrigerator was not cold enough - he adjusted some settings, 2. He showed me how to force the air to dump from the coach by repeatedly pressing the coach's brake, and 3. The dining room table latch had broken - he replaced the latch. He is ordering a new window awning for the driver's side slide out. He is a true professional. Affordable Mobile RV Service. Cell: 541-343-3492.
