Family, Re-modeling, and Workamping at Crescent Bar TT Resort - Quincy, WA - July 5, 2016

Time for an update. It has been a month and a day since the last one. That's the longest I have gone without an update. It has been all work, work, work here at the park. We lost one of our work-kamping couples (medical problems) and we all have been getting lots of hours. We just finished with the big 4th of July weekend. A little stressful, but we all made it through it.

During this last month, we did have some excitement one day. A fire! It has been pretty hot lately, into the high 90s. Everything is drying out. The hills are turning brown like they usually do during the summer. Then a brush fire broke out here at Crescent Bar behind the condos. Luckily it was moving uphill and away from the populated area.

We had a front row seat watching the helicopters dropping buckets of water on it. They got it out just before the wind picked up. It could have been bad though.

One day, our Son Tim came over along with Roman & Ryker. On the way, he picked up Oli (our Great Grandson) in Wenatchee and they all spent the day and night with us.

It was a nice surprise visit.

Our place was all topsy turvy because of all the remodeling going on.

Tim greased up the boys so we could all head over to the pool.

Donna finally got off work and joined us on this hot day.

Fun, fun!

Roman & Oli watching a movie.

We had a great time with the boys.

The Re-model...

We tore out the booth sytle dining area and continued to strip and prep the floor.

We started with the big living room slide.

I glued the first row in place.

After the first row, it went pretty fast.

Slide is done. Except for some edging along the slide edge and some quarter-round baseboard. We will do all the detail work when all flooring is down.

Another day, our daughter Kim came over to visit and spend the night. It was her birthday. She was heading up a 'Run for the Cure' rally in Moses Lake and could only visit for one day. It was a short but good visit. Guess who forgot to take pictures.....me.

And on another day, our daughter Candy, and her Son Erik, and his Son Oli, all came to spend a couple of nights with us.

Another hot weeknd. A good time to head to the river.

We even found a beach monster skeleton!

I wanted to get a picture of them with Donna. It would have been a 4 Generation picture. Guess who forgot..... me.

The dining area in our rig was next up. On the new floor, we purchesed some cherry wood cabinets.

And a desktop to match our other kitchen countertop.

A new storage/desk/eating area!!

Then came the time to start on the main floor. I made sure the new flooring would clear the moving slides, then proceeded to glue the first row again. Lots of crazy cuts to make on this side of the rig. I picked up a rotary saw from Harbor Frieght and had access to a table saw and jigsaw from the park shop.

It went pretty fast then, until I ran out of planks. I still have 3 more rows to do. We will pick up another 2 boxes of planks from Costco as soon as they come in. Then we can get this finished.

But I think it looks pretty good so far....

We really like our new 'dining 'area.

Just 3 more rows to go.

Then on to the bathroom area.

And the cockpit area.

So far, so good!

That about sums up the last month. The next update should be the done deal.
