Back in action!

JoAnne Morgan

Whew…What an adventure this past 17 days has been!! From my computer crashing, sending and receiving it back from Dell, visiting the Ute Indian Museum, receiving our uniforms, two-way patrol radios, golf cart, leveling the RV (yet again), taking the dog to the vet (who is scheduled for surgery on the 8th), getting my blood work done, learning the procedures, working in the visitor center/gift shop, Rick working on a Facebook page for Ridgway State Park, meeting almost all of the rangers along with the seven other camp hosting couples, attending park sponsored meetings and events, adjusting to the unpredictable mountain weather, Rick leaving for Boulder for a day and a night to run his 33rd Bolder Boulder with our daughter Andrea (leaving Sandy & I taking caring for the campground), and last but not least…our microwave is broken and in for repairs with an uncertain future date of its return!

So – there you have it! Officially, you are current with us, and our new adventure!

Now I wouldn’t want you to get the wrong vision of our lives here as camp hosts in Ridgway State Park – we are LOVING IT!!!

Even though we woke to the two-way radio hearing…a car is in the lake, send for a probe and a diver, or there are cows in the campground, and headquarters there is a bear sighting! The radio’s, preliminary use is for communicating to the rangers who really run the park in coordination with the camp hosts and excellent staff. It all makes for one really fantastic team!!!

We are at site #98 in the Elk Ridge Campground, so if you are “in the neighborhood” please stop by and say hello! If you’re not in the immediate neighborhood, please join us on facebook.com/rjrvtravels and on Twitter @rjrvtravels and SEE PHOTOS HERE

  7. Out of all that, the most amazing thing i read was "our microwave is broken and in for repairs". Didn't know someone still worked on them! :)

    I would so love for Skye and I to get up there this summer but I don't see it happening. We haven't been to the mountains in 5 years probably. Way too long.
