Today is the start of getting back to normal after the holidays. Most people are now back to work and finished the days off for Christmas and New Year’s. On Thursday it will be completely back to normal when the kids get back on the school bus. Although it has been an enjoyable holiday it will be nice to get back into the routine of normal life again. I’m sure there are a few people out there that would agree. It has been an odd couple weeks with some places open normal hours and some places closed extra days because Christmas fell on a weekend this year.
As you look out the window and see the snow covered ground then step out into the bitter cold you may not be thinking about camping, but we are. This is actually the time of year when most of our advertising is set up for next summer. Since the end of February usually brings on the start of the Boat Show and RV Show season most tourism guides are being printed in January. This ‘show season’ is when most brochures and guides are handed out. That means our ads have to be placed and designed right now. I am also redesigning some new RDR brochures. As we have grown and changed over the last few years I am finding that it is time for an update to reflect where we are at now.
We have also been planning what is going to be new for 2011 and what is going to be upgraded. We are still working on finalizing some details and I will be sharing details as they happen. The first thing to be completed is some new cars for our kiddie train. The most important changes are that they are now adult friendly and will have padded seats. I can hardly wait until it is time for a test drive. After years of watching the train go past full of smiling faces it is now my turn for a ride.
Cheers to a New Year and another chance for us to get it right. – Oprah Winfrey
