Visit from Headquarters

Sorry for the delay in postings on this blog, but we have been very busy getting the campgrounds in shape for the season.  Plus not all our camphosts arrived at the same time, so I’ve had to do four separate training sessions at two hours a piece.

Yesterday we had a visit from our company’s Director of Finance, Matt Kemp.  He was here to do a “walk through” with the Forest Service to see the campgrounds and prospectus in preparation to “bid” on a permit to operate our campgrounds for the next term…usually seven years.

We’ve met Matt originally in Orem, Utah, last September, when we visited American Land and Leisure’s headquarters.  Then we met again in Quartzsite when we worked in the company’s booth outside of the Big Tent.

Here we are with Big Meadows Reservoir in the background.  Yes, Matt, is a young man, but here is very smart, perceptive and has a very welcoming and engaging personality.  He looks you in the eye and really listens to what you have to say….that is a wonderful trait he has.  We enjoyed his company and his humor.


(Note:  OK, Cool Judy, I am using Windows Live and changed the shape of the picture and it STILL shows a white band under the photo.  Any other suggestions???)

We had a good time Monday night showing Matt around all our campgrounds and introduced him to all our camphosts.  We don’t get many visits from “corporate” so it was a real treat for our camphosts to meet someone from headquarters.  They all did a heck of a job preparing for his visit and the “walk through” and the campgrounds looked great!

Today we had a laid back day after all the extra work we did to get ready for Matt’s visit.  So Jim went fishing and here I am at the local library using their wifi because it is so much faster than my mifi connected to my little antenna.  So I have spent three hours surfing the net….one of my most favorite things to do.  I could be online six hours a day if I could….just love researching all kinds of things online.

Have lots more to tell you about our activities the last couple of weeks….but that is all for today. 

Remember, you are loved!!!
