Randy worked really hard on two campground fences and has been enjoying a bit of a lull before starting his last campground. He’s mostly worked alone but occasionally has help from the rangers or seasonal workers.
Given the lull, Randy tackled some trailer maintenance. Our Progressive Industries Electrical Management System is designed to give information about electrical usage and provide warnings and protection if the power amperage is too low or surges. All that was good until it started humming at a pitch that drove me crazy! The hum started in May and we pursued a replacement under the life time warranty. While waiting for it to arrive, we had a thunderstorm complete with electrical surge that took the hum away. Recently the hum started again so Handy Randy switched them out.
We had another company stand behind a product in an unexpected way. We ordered a 10 X 10 canopy from Crown Shades on Amazon and it came and all was well until a microburst sent it flying and bent one leg. I contacted the company to see if there was a way to purchase a replacement leg. There wasn’t – so they sent us a brand new canopy. We made it clear that the leg had not come damaged but they sent us a new canopy asking only for a positive review on Amazon. We got to keep the old canopy and Engineer Handy Randy made the bent leg workable so now we have two.
And he replaced a cracked drain in our shower tub. There’s no end to what Handy Randy, the engineer, can do.
As a break from all that maintenance, we walked the Tamarack grounds and came upon a few abandoned construction sites. Randy enjoyed these the way I enjoy museums!
We found some interesting things.. like these Delvo pucks. I had to research what they are used for. They are recommended for use in slowing down the hardening of fresh concrete or stabilizing returned concrete wastewater. Now you know…
So…there’s going for a walk with one engineer – and then there’s going for a walk with two of them…
The only wildlife we saw were the human variety riding the chairlift with their bikes and then racing downhill. $169 for a season pass for human and bike.
More adventures from Donnelly, Cascade and McCall coming soon!
