Time to Rope a Steer!


It was time to make our life around here a little easier, so we roped a Steer a skid steer that is! Nice shiny lightly used BobCat Skid Steer arrived at 29 Palms RV Resort yesterday, what a way to end the year!

We have a ton of projects around the park where this machine will be a huge help.
Remove the dirt from the horseshoe pit yard and fill along the outside of the wall on Amboy where the ground is shrinking?
Move gravel and level sites and gravel behind the cottages.
Work on the burn pile.
No more digging trenches for water pipes etc...the trencher is a huge help.

Trencher attached!

Trencher at work!

Rob - Puttin it to work!

Out with the old!

Spa and Pool Update!

The new wall is being built on the entrance to the Spa room!

New Door installed!

Steel grates will allow ventilation in the Spa Room!

All the new pool furniture is here and being assembled and will be in the pool area shortly. Pool is operational, hopefully the sun will be out for a while so the solar heat kicks in, we are supplementing with propane heat to help it along a little. The Spa people are due out after the holidays to help us find the leak so we can get it operational, in the meantime we will be finishing the walls.

Soon after Santa arrived our wonderful kitchen crew were out getting turkeys and ham ready for dinner. A couple deep fried and a roasted Turkey and a nice ham all prepared for a 2:00 PM dinner in the clubhouse, with our guests supplying all the sides and boy did they. Never ceases to amaze me how much food ends up on the buffet line.

We had a joyous crowd of about 38 people or so who enjoyed a wonderful buffett dinner with plenty of left-overs to take home for a late snack or another dinner.

Every side you could imagine - from green beans to dressing, mash potatoes, potato casserole, fresh rolls...


Plenty of desserts to enjoy!!

Now to get ready for New Years.

We always have a wonderful dinner/dance for New Years Eve...make sure you sign up and pay in the office. Prime Rib or Chicken Cordon Bleu, your choice. This is a wonderful sit-down served dinner with music by our favorite DJ well into the evening - we celebrate Chicago Time!

The primary construction and repair of the pool is complete. We are in the process of trying to raise the temp a little, but the cold weather and cloudy days are not helping...we are supplementing the solar a little with some propane heat to get to where the solar and sun will start to maintain the temperature, solar is new to us so we are learning as we go. Water and chemicals and filters are now working perfectly, so if you can stand the cooler temperature please enjoy the pool.

Right now the pool is open on a limited basis, daylight hours only and subject to closing for further construction, we will begin removing the sliding glass doors and replacing with solid walls and some metal art, as well as installing some large potted plants, we will also be painting or stuccoing the building at some point in time soon. New pool furniture is being ordered as we speak and the pool will become a highlight of the park.

Right now we are still sorting out a few problems with the SPA, but it is high on our list to complete as soon as we can.

Please comply with the following rules:
