ON THE ROAD AGAIN travel blog


Yes, our days are numbered, everyone's are, but I'm referring to our days left here at Cochiti Lake. I've started the slow process of checking things and getting things ready for travel.

-

Our storage shed that we have the use of while staying here is empty or almost empty. In the shed they supply us with a residential refrigerator and we will continue to use that until a day or two before we leave.

I've checked the air pressure in all our tires a couple of times and added more air in the trailer tires, our trailer tires are now at 115# which is what is recommended to handle our weight. The tires have a max of 120 PSI. We had a small Black and Decker air compressor that was rated at 125 PSI but I had trouble getting that out of it. For the past couple years we have been using a small Sears compressor rated at 150# and now I have no problems reaching the needed pressure. I would highly recommend the Sears to any RV traveler.

Today I want to make sure our slide outs are functioning properly. A few months ago I tried to bring in our kitchen slide and the bedroom slide started coming in also. I think its maybe just air in our hydraulic system and I will purge the air out with bringing them all in and out a couple times today.

We have been really busy here at the campground taking care of our campers. Tomorrow will be the beginning of the Albuquerque International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta and we have had a busy week so far taking care of arrivals and switching them to a different campsite so they can stay a day or two longer than their plans. When they see how beautiful and relaxing it is here they hate to leave.

We also have travelers that have a reservation but they arrive a day or two early. They have a reservation in our Buffalo Grove Loop and want to know if their same campsite would be available early. Unfortunately that loop has been booked up all week and is booked up all next week for the Fiesta. We tell them we can still accommodate them but they will have to stay in Juniper Loop until their reserved site is unoccupied.

Juniper Loop is the older section of the campground and was built shortly after the dam was constructed back in the late 60's when the RV's were much smaller. Sometimes it a bit of a squeeze for them in their site but at least they have a place to stay.

Judy and I are all about customer service at our jobs here. We treat all our campers the same as we would like to be treated. Some campground hosts or park attendants are almost like "Gestapo Agents" and we believe that is unnecessary. Just treat them the same as you would want to be treated and everyone will have a happy pleasant experience.

Well I just had several paragraphs disappear when I hit some key on the keyboard so I'm just going to close now before I totally loose control and delete everything. Don't you just love technology.

Happy Camping,

Bob, Judy and Our4dogs
