On the move
Autos of beauty
We moved today. It is always nice to be on the road. But it is sorta disconcerting when you pull up to a gate and say, “We have reservations for two weeks,” and the lady looks at your printed reservations and says,”I’m sorry but nothing shows in my computer.” After some talking back and forth with no solid results we decide to call the SUPER CENTER OF ALL RESERVATIONS ON EARTH! The one who has guns to enforce their way if needed.
We walk over to our coach fire up the generator turn on the computer as Sherry makes the call on the telly!
Usually I cannot say this, but the nice lady on the other end says, “Let me talk to the clerk there, YOU DO HVE RESERVATIONS!”
We then walk the 100 yards back to the office as Sherry talks on the way.(While we are away two more coaches come up as she finishes another) The clerk is obviously not familiar or new and asks if she can do the two new arrivals first, to keep traffic from backing into the highway.
Here is where I sometimes dislike myself, We have waited 20-30 minutes, these folks came up after us. The lady hurriedly talked on the phone and admitted we did have reservations and we are still waiting. “I say, of course go ahead we are going nowhere!” So we wait while the others are processed.
An assertive person would have said, “It will only take three minutes, give us a site and let us get out of this wind.”
Anyway, we got settled at a site and are now set up for two weeks. We are near Clermont, Florida. Not two miles from the “once famous Citrus Tower.” The tower was known at the level of Silver Springs and Cypress Gardens. It used to overlook thousands of acres of Orange trees, now the overlook is thousands and thousands of house roofs.
