Easier said than done. Upon further examination my portable compress has about enough hose and electrical connection to reach from the cab of the truck to the rear tires on the truck and certainly not the additional ten feet to the trailer tires. Since this compressor uses a portable power source similar to a cigarette lighter (remember those?) I had to think for a moment to come up with one I could use. Our trailer has an emergency window on the driver side and right above that window is a power outlet, for God knows what, next to an additional outlet and connection for a second television in case we become to blind to see the one over the dinette more than half way across the trailer. I removed the screen, opened the window, fed the electrical through to the power outlet and presto I had power for the compressor which did a nice job of inflating my low tire. I missed it at the park because we park on gravel and it is hard to tell if a tire has an issue until you move the trailer and drive it a few miles. Problem solved and we were back on the road to Leavenworth.
Upon arrival we went straight to the Safeway store so Mia could shop for the stuff we left home yesterday when we left for Gold Bar. While she did that, I took Honey for a walk around the parking lot and took some pictures.
Since the manager still wasn't in, I would have to come back and check in. We went to the site, set up the trailer, had some lunch and went out to take Honey for a short walk and investigate the site a little more. They have all the goodies you could want. Pool, hot tub, cable TV, internet, barbecue in each lot, showers, restrooms, game rooms and kids play area. It is a very nice park and we were even happier when we learn our son and his family were coming to visit us on Sunday. I went down to the office to check in and found another very nice young lady (sorry didn't get her name) who was the manager. She knew about the coupon but had not set it up in the computer so that it would work for the girls at the desk. We joked about how it worked when the first girl tried it. It actually was going to let me camp for two nights and get $55.00 back. But all was fixed and we got registered and paid the bill, which I don't feel was unreasonable at all for all the benefits. These young ladies were absolutely fantastic and I made sure the manager knew it.
We went into Leavenworth and then up Icicle Road to see where we are going to hike tomorrow. After driving several miles we determined that we were lost and turned around. After arriving back at the trailer I discovered that we missed a turn off that was only 1.4 miles up the road. I got some nice pictures. Isn't nature wonderful.
Hope all is well and thanks for stopping by.
