Our Time is Quickly Coming to an End at Mesa Regal

Today was our last day of work, in fact what was left of the crew all worked this morning. More about that later.

Monday I began some of the prep chores in getting the camper ready to travel. I aired the camper tires, cleaned the wheels etc., I wanted them to look good going down the road and I greased the MorRyde suspension system. Actually, I not too sure how much grease was in the system because I believe I used a half a tube of grease on them.

Tuesday saw me cleaning the truck. It takes me a bit over an hour to do that mostly because I don't work to fast, but the truck looks good and that is the goal. Later that afternoon we went to Bill & Luddella's to visit with them and have dinner. We went to Texas Roadhouse and had a good meal. It was a good time we will miss them but hopefully we will see them in November.

Thursday after work we stopped by Happy Hour and enjoyed the appetizers our boss Mikki bought for everyone. We said our goodbyes with hugs to all those who are leaving before we are and especially to those who are not coming back next year. To all of our fellow Decor Team members it has been a wonderful and memorable experience for Sarah & I, we will not forget these past four months. So we would like to say to our fellow workampers as they get back on the road:

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you:
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.

As I stated before today was our last day of work. We finished at noon and said more goodbyes to our team. We then went to Wendy's for a fish sandwich, I remember liking them and had not had one for a long time so we tried them and they are still good. Then it was time to grocery shop for the road.

The rest of the day has been spent doing very little. I did get the ladders secured to the camper and lubricated the bike rack locks. Other than that I read the rest of the day.

Tomorrow I am taking Steve & Teresa to the airport at five am, then fuel the truck, come home and load the bikes, check the air in the truck tires, make sure the fifth wheel has air in it and put away a few more items and we should be ready to go Sunday morning.

So glad you had a great winter. Looks like the weather back in Iowa has been good too.
