AMERICA'S DAY, THE FOURTH OF JULY

Fun at the parade

sunny 73 °F

Hi Folks;

Our day began with beautiful sunshine and cool temperatures, perfect for a parade. The festivities began at 10:00 am promptly so I drove the 3 miles to Breckenridge at about 8:30 to secure a spot for my chair along the street. Glad that I did for there were several thousand spectators lining Main St. We are 'out west' so naturally the parade was led by a group of riders mounted on their beautiful horses. Following them was the parade queen riding on a classic 1962 red Corvette convertible. Very nostalgic for old guys like me! The parade lasted a full hour with floats, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Soldiers, Policemen, Firemen, etc., etc. Everything typical of parades across America today. Following the parade there were a dozen or more hospitality booths offering food & drink to the parade-goers. At the parade I saw a couple from the campground who invited me to a party at 3:00. It was a BYOB with a dish to pass, and a folding chair to sit in. I attended and had a great time meeting many other 'neighbors'. Many of these people own their campsites and rent them through the Park Office when not there. These owners reserve the dates that they will be here and the traveling public rents on a day basis, like I did. This is a very, very nice campground and to purchase a site here one has to pay in the 6 figures. Believe it or not, the RV's that occupy these owned sites run from $500K to $2.8M. Wow! Talk about the pauper, I was it this week! My neighbors who seemed to have adopted me invited me to see their 45' Prevost MH. Prevost is at the top in the food chain of MH's. Seven figures. What a beautiful rig. Heated marble floors, curved designer walls, a shower for two with 8 settings incl. music to bathe by. Don, the owner, said, "It handles like a 45' sports car". It was an interesting experience.

After the party I returned to my humble MH and did some preparation for leaving tomorrow. It was an enjoyable time.
