You always get new neighbors in RV parks, as some pack up and head out on their adventure, others arrive and begin their adventure as your new neighbor. At 9:30 last night, these wonderful people pulled in and attempted to park directly behind my rig. 30 minutes later, they finally had the fifth wheel in place. I thought about offering to park it for him after the first 10 minutes, but when I peaked out the door, I realized that wasn't an offer that would be appreciated. At that point, the door slamming began. I not sure what you could be doing getting in and out of your truck 8 times after the rig is parked, but they definitely did ... and they slammed the doors loudly, just to be sure they were shut each time. This morning, early, I snapped a picture for you.
The Group Hosts at our little rally had the local Chico Fire Department stop by for some fire safety tips. Two very nice, knowledgeable firemen (one fire woman) spoke on all things fire-safety related --- in your home. They didn't really have experience with RV's, so we helped them out and gave them all the information they could possibly want!!! Several had been to Boot Camps and seminars, including myself. When they recommended getting the "hang on the windowsill" portable ladders, I politely protested. Open the window, through some bed covers over the edge and GET OUT feet first, as fast as possible. They were rather resistant about some of our recommendations, but I think in the end decided they were out-numbered!! The best thing they did was bring their "put out the fire" demonstration equipment, and with some prompting, ALL the women tried putting the fire out with rather large extinguishers. It was great learning experience for them.
