We loaded up the back of the company pickup with bundles of firewood and drove around to each campsite and told them the good news...and then sold them a bundle of wood to celebrate!!!
Here are two groups of our campers enjoying their fire.
To further celebrate the lifting of the fire ban, Jim and I decided we would throw a wienie roast for the whole campground. So we invited everyone in the campground to our campsite tonight at 5 p.m. to enjoy a get-together. We'll provide the hot dogs and condiments and everyone will bring their own drinks, chairs and a side dish. We have about 20 people in the campground right now so we should have a good turnout. Do you want to come over too???? You're invited....we got plenty.
Business has been pretty slow these last three weeks. We are getting the one-nighters who pull off the highway to stay one night as they pass through our area. But we haven't had folks from the local communities like we normally do, who come up for the weekend. Without being able to have a fire and make s'mores they have been staying away.
The lifting of the fire ban has hit the local radio stations and newspapers and just this morning I had two Alamosans pull in to spend a couple of nights. Now, maybe, we'll have some better business.
Remember, you are loved.
