Sunday was our day off but we got a call from the camphost at the CG across the street...."Was the site manager around?" (site manager = our boss). He wasn't and I asked if I could help. "No, just wanted to let him know I've told two campers they must leave. Father and son camping together were just standing in the street in front of my RV throwing punches." I decided I would drive over anyway just as a precaution until the campers left. Who says you can't find quality entertainment camping in the woods. This was better than Jerry Springer.
Joan and I worked felling and bucking trees 4 of our 5 workdays this week. On Wednesday a professional came in to take down 12 trees that were either too large or too precariously located for our company to risk a miscalculation. The largest saw we have has a 48" blade; some of the hazard trees measured in excess of 60" in diameter.
During lunch the 'Queen' assumed her throne for a little break
Finally Saturday rolled around....the day of the 2012 White Water Fest. Over 3,000 attendees were descending upon a small stretch of the Clackamas River separating 2 of the CGs we manage. What a blast. Lots of drift boats, various types of rafts and of course kayaks. We had noticed a crew working on building what we thought was a staircase down the bank to the river. Must be for the judges to get right down on top of the action when everyone is going through the course. Earlier in the day we bumped into one of the race starters near the loading area. "Make sure you're down at the gates at 3 o'clock. That's when they do the 'Big Air'." That's no staircase, that's a ramp for the kayaks to see how high they can jump. Did you know kayaks can fly? Believe me, they can!
That's it for this week. Stay Tuned. More to Follow.
