The unofficial beginning to camping season is almost here

If we can get past today and tomorrow it looks like we should be in the clear for the weekend. They are still saying that we will see some sunshine and no rain. We won’t discuss the next couple days however.

The mini golf facelift is basically done. Yesterday’s rain has delayed the finishing touches but it definately looks much better right now. We just have to get some rails to go on the fence (which is proving difficult because the lumber store doesn’t seem to want to return calls??). We have to fix up some carpet on the holes, but unfortunately the weather isn’t going to let us do that before the weekend. We need a couple days of dry conditions before that can be finished. It looks like the gravel to touch up the picnic shelter has just arrived and then that is about the last of the major cosmetic stuff for this weekend. There still seems to be lots on the ‘to do’ lists, but it is coming along.

The RDR Grill will be having chocolate cheesecake and lemon meringue pie as our special desserts this weekend. So you can probably guess what I have been doing this morning. My pie crust have just beeped that they are done and my cheese cake is cooling as we speak. Soon time to taste test mmmmmm.

Fast forward to Friday morning and I am surprised that we have not had any cancellations because of the weather. We seem to have missed the snow and are just getting some rain. It is making things wet for set up today, but if we hopefully should dry up quickly. The last report that I heard the pool was getting close to 8OF. It doesn’t matter what the temperature is outside I expect there will still be people in it this weekend.

I just released a new recipe book this week – Ducky’s Hard Slushee Recipes. There are a few regular campers (and owners)  that have been creating some adult slushees during the last couple years that we have had the slushee machine so I decided it was time to go public with the concoctions. I have also created a prepaid slushee card, thanks to the suggestion of one of those regular campers. The idea is that you can prepay for 2-10 slushees at one time, then just bring the card in when you want to get one. It will save searching for money everytime the kids come and do the “mom can I have a slushee?”  Just hand them the card and away they go.
