First Day! Five Tours!
Apr 1, 2010
|I looked forward to guiding in the cave again, so I accompanied Joe giving a tour yesterday. Today I was on my own.
After our morning coffee I dressed in my “Cave Clothing”, ate some toast, went for an early morning walk with Marilyn, and then walked to the gift shop to start the day as a guide.
By the time the day was over about 5:00 PM, I had given five tours to folks from different parts of the country. I guess the farthest distance people had traveled to take a tour was from Salt Lake City, UT.
One tour was notable because a young boy on the tour with his parents, was not wanting to go beyond the entrance to the cave.
I talked to him and convinced him to stay with me and by the time the tour was over, he was having a fine time. He even enjoyed seeing the bats!
Linda brought Subway sandwiches for everyone today and that was much appreciated.
Jennifer, Colby and Lauren were at the RV today but I missed them as I was in the cave when they came to the gift shop to see me.
The outdoor temperature reached 88 today but I didn’t even know that until I walked home at 5:00 PM. I was basking in the constant 52 degree temperature inside the cave today. The jacket I was wearing felt really good!
After five tours today, I had better take some ibuprofen tonight because I’ll bet that my legs and feet will hurt all night long.
Once I was home tonight, I had to climb up on the roof to attach the digital antenna. Now our TV reception is very good.
Finally we are all settled down and ready to relax. I hurt!
Remember dear readers……..Life is Good!
