Pelton Park Is Open for the 2014 Season

The Park opened to the public last Friday the 25th.  The days before Friday were mostly “get the final touches completed” days.  On Friday we had nine of the sixty six sites rented. Mostly, it was folks here to do some fishing.  They were quick to pick up on the fact that Judy and I “were not from around here.” The campers have been very friendly to both of us, making us feel very welcome.

Judy and I took a drive to Redmond, the nearest town with a WalMart. It is located 35miles south of the park. It was our first drive south of Madras and we were taken with the scenic beauty. We will be taking our camera the next time we go so we can post some pics.  We did stop at a “scenic overlook” and take a couple of pics with our phones.

We both like our work schedule because we seem to have plenty of time off even though I am working forty hours. Unlike, Blanton Creek park, we  don’t have to be on site 24/7. Once our shift is over we have time to drive into Madras or just relax at the RV. Judy really likes being able to enjoy time off at the RV.

On one of our days off last week we drove back to Portland to pick up a new lap top at Best Buy and an external hard drive to back up all of our files.  My laptop is almost five years old and has been acting up of late.  I also purchased two new batteries for the truck, the $300.00s for the batteries made me wince.

That is all for now. Thanks for stopping by.

Next Blog: next Wed.
