3/23/13 Saturday at Columbus, TX (Colorado River Campground-TT)
We really slept in this morning, yet we both had a very good night’s rest, so I guess we need it. I decided this was the time to contact TT regarding our membership dues structure (very expensive compared to other TT members’ dues), so I researched the options I knew of. Next thing I knew it was time for the Manager’s information meeting. After that we dawdled until lunch and those dishes. Finally I stopped procrastinating and called TT (Sam Cherry) to make our case, requesting their help in getting relief from these excessive dues. Needless to say, our conversation with Sam Cherry and our intermittent “thinking it over” lasted all afternoon. Essentially we have 3 options: 1-keep our current membership with expensive yearly dues, 2-cancel it and buy an upgraded membership from TT (necessary for nationwide use) or 3-sell it and buy a resale membership. Thousand Trails offers more “goodies” (including much lower dues that will be frozen-never increased), but with a high initial cost. Resale could be a smaller “package” (including that my dues can’t be frozen) and the initial cost would be lower, possibly by $3,000. We are still thinking this over.
We are also still waiting for the Home Inspection Report for mom’s condo – the deal isn’t done without that.
A delicious H E B supper of Bococho beans (made with beer and peppers), chipolte corn, coleslaw salad and grilled fajita chicken was next. SO good (and salty)!
Then we settled down to watch the Gonzaga men play basketball against Wichita. We played hard, but they played harder and won by 5 points. Ouch!! A number 1 ranked team lost to a number 9 ranked team. Still, I’m proud of our guys. Teams outside our conference seem bent on heavy physical contact, I think, something our guys don’t do as well.
