3/24/13 Sunday at Columbus, TX (Colorado River Campground-TT)
Since today is so cold (mid 50’s) and windy, we decided to tackle another dreaded project: clean the refrigerator. After church and lunch I proceeded to do just that. John helped by loading the fridge food into a bin and the freezer food into our electric cooler and haul it outside, where it’s nice and cool. I got to clean!
As soon as I’d finished cleaning I turned on the fridge so it would cool before we put the food back in. Perfect timing because Sam called just then. We had a few more questions. Texans seem to be very sweet, kind people and I could count Sam among them. With our choices, I was leaning to the resale membership (less up front money, not so sure we need the extra features of an Elite upgrade) and John wanted the Elite upgrade from TT. After he’d shown me how soon our camping budget account would get paid back the $5,000 we would need for the upgrade, merely by applying our current camping budget there, I could see its value. Plus I’ve always been leery of not keeping our dues frozen.
By 4 pm we’d signed the papers and paid the money. We are now NEW members of Thousand Trails with a Camp Zone Pass that will cost $525 (plus tax) a year. With that we have 60 nights “free”, then we pay $3/night beyond the 60. Way cheaper than our previous $16/night if we paid $700 for 50 nights “free”. That was just one of our “ugly” options. Then we paid $5,000 for an Elite upgrade which gives us Nationwide use and many more “goodies”.
The rest of the afternoon and evening we relaxed!
