We’ve had a number of folks point out to us that they too have a dream of in the future shopping for a campground, so we’re excited to proceed sharing a few of the good & dangerous of constructing a park from the bottom up.

Actually, the campground course of has been fairly enjoyable.

We have now a dozen big schematics the place we get to paint in concepts and lay out the park. These extremely massive web site plans additionally serve a twin objective for big coloring pages for Ellie.

Since buying the property we’ve already hosted so many buddies and made new ones by means of our Hipcamp listing.

Cheers from final night time’s crew of campers 🥂


Yesterday I spent the afternoon doing price comparisons and studying critiques on industrial rest room paper.

Okay, perhaps that final one was much less enjoyable. However rest room paper critiques are really comical, plus now I do know that recycled paper towels and bathroom paper price lower than common. Fascinating and ineffective info, I do know!


We have now one minor snag.

Which I’m selecting to see as a ridiculously hilarious downside as a result of after the previous few weeks, we’ve formally gotten to that stage.

We are able to’t discover the mailbox.

And belief me, I’ve appeared all over the place.

There’s no mailbox on the property.

I’ve pushed previous neighboring mailboxes and maybe fairly creepily learn all of the numbers to double-check that they aren’t ours.

The earlier proprietor has no thought the place it’s.

The earlier earlier proprietor has no thought.

Heath visited with a number of neighbors who additionally do not know.

The earlier earlier earlier proprietor was the Montrose College District. I’ve left them a message, however the college district final held courses there in 1992…so I’m not holding my breath that they’ve been holding mail for the previous 30 years.

The man on the submit workplace mentioned if I can show I’m the proprietor by bringing within the deed, then he can discover me a set of keys to the mailbox.

“The mailbox, the place?” I requested.

“I don’t know,” he shrugged.

And I’ve formally spent weeks attempting to resolve this thriller. Tomorrow my plan is to point out up on the submit grasp’s workplace as a result of she has not answered her cellphone but and has no voicemail… 🤔

We all know mail is being delivered as a result of the individuals who have despatched us mail—necessary folks like our insurance coverage firm and our financial institution and the town and other people whose mail you 100% don’t wish to lose—haven’t had mail returned to them.


Someplace in Montrose county lays an more and more thick stack of mail with my identify on it.

The thriller continues.

Of all issues, discovering the mailbox has simply been probably the most troublesome problem we’ve encountered up to now two months since we’ve bought this property.

(Honorable point out goes to changing your complete rest room after the inspector tell us there’s a selected aspect of the bathroom the place the flusher should be in an ADA accessible toilet.)

Hopefully by subsequent week I’ll lastly put this loopy lengthy search to mattress.

In any other case, you will discover me sitting by the street in a garden chair ready for a mailman to drive by so I can flag him down and query him. Nobody can say no to a large pregnant lady.

That’s what constructing a campground appears to be like like this week. We hope to have extra thrilling updates within the close to time period, however for now we’d simply love to just accept some mail 🤪
