We arrived at Essex Junction about 12:30 or so. I’m down to about a 1/4 tank of fuel. Diesel is running about $2.50 a gallon. I was waiting to get it about $2.25…. dreaming evidently. We set up at our temporary FHU site for now as did others. Next week we will move to another site for the Escapade.
Our rig was dirty from about 10 minutes of rain on the interstate the other day. That gets a rig real dirty quick. I washed it before we left WV. It figures. When we arrived here I gave the rig a bucket wash…..kinda. I got the bugs off the front. Then I wiped down one side. Then I washed and shined the wheels and tires. Now I got one side left to do along with the rear end . The rear will be the hardest to do because it’s coated with a lot of road grime. Oh well, another day.
There’s about 2 dozen of us here now. Our jobs are to start prepping the facility for Escapade attendees. The regular advance staff will start coming in next Wednesday. Boot Camp starts Thursday and Escapade regular attendees come in Saturday and Sunday for five days.
My job is……. it’s……. and I ……… then ……?
Here’s the staff at dinner. The Escapade Directors put on this dinner of brats and burgers for us. They do another dinner Sunday. Mark does one Monday and my turn is Tuesday. Guess what I will prepare? After that we don’t eat for a week I think.
Come about darkness we all went back to our rigs for a very quiet evening. We get great cell phone service and WiFi.
It was a good day.
