First day at SKP Jojoba Hills

1pm  - Well, my sleeping plan last nite, was to get to bed before midnite. That didn't work?? I got to bed after 3am! But that's OK. Because I got up at 10am 😎.

I had bit of a problem getting online with my iPhone's personal HotSpot. I could not figure out what was not working? Tried rebooting both iPhone and MacBook Air. Still the HotSpot still did not work?

Just a few minutes ago, the HotSpot began working again. On its own. I did not do anything. Hmmmmm?

2pm - Paying the rent
Having my electric bike here at the SKP park is a blessing. I am able to go all over the park with ease. On the iPhone, there is an App that tells me where the RV that I am living in is located. The App points an arrow in the direction of the RV. It also reports how far away from me is the RV! Cool.

I am staying at Jojoba for 10 days. Until September 2nd. The rent and electric comes to $240 for the ten days. $24 bucks a day. Pretty good, huh?

3pm - Exploring
The electric bike's battery is charging now. As soon as it is charged, I'm going out exploring. Take pics for you to see 😎.

5pm - Hot tub and library
The Jojoba Hills swimming pool, [2] hot tubs and library, have something that is in common with my Guava Gardens Apartments. Hardly anybody uses the facilities?? Hmmmmm?

I took a pic of the uncovered outdoor hot tub [there's a covered hot tub too.] The pool had one person in it. It's a HUGE pool!

For sure I will use this hot tub a lot!


A lovely library. I did some blogging 
sitting on the couch [right]

11pm - Cooking supper
Back when I was Tioga George, I did a lot of cooking in MsTioga's kitchen. Now, MsTioga is no more. But I remember what went down,

I really got a kick out of cooking up supper out in the wilds of Montana. Or down in southern Mexico, right up against the Guatemala border!

MsTioga and I have cooked up supper all over western Canada and the United States. And pretty much all of Mexico

You might wonder if I miss those times? If I miss MsTioga? I don't miss those things. But if you asked me how I do feel? I would answer that:
"I am filled with nostalgia for those times."

Would you like to see supper this evening? Hmmmmm?

From L-R: Brussel sprouts, Fajita chicken, 
Sweet corn, Cherry tomatoes & Baby carrots

  1. Hi George, I've been interested in purchasing an electric bike for some time and you sound very happy with yours. Would you tell me a little about it and if you would buy the same brand and model again? Also, was the battery upgrade worth the money? Thanks.

    1. Hi Sheila,

      You are correct. I am very happy with my ProdecoTech electric bike. The model is: Mariner 7. My bike arrived with 9 amp hour battery. Too small.

      When these batteries are used for about two years, they lose capacity. So, two years use means now you only have a 7 amp hour battery.

      I upgraded to a 12 amp hour battery. This upgrade battery holds it's charge extremely well. The cost for upgrade was $540, including shipping. I feel that was money well spent.

      Mariner 7 is a folding electric bike. This means that the bike may carried in the back of even small cars.

      I am getting a bit old for biking. I will be 79 in November. Would you be interested in buying my Mariner 7?

      George

    2. Hi George, Thanks for considering me to purchase your electric bike; however, I am not in the financial position yet to make the purchase. Love reading your posts. Keep riding as long as you can and stay safe.

  2. Here's someone you might be interested in meeting at Jojoba Hills George. It's none other than the 'Bird Lady Of Blogland her very self, Judy. A former long time fellow blogger and full time RV'er Judy has finally hung up the keys and moved into Jojoba Hills recently. You may already know of Judy but if not here is the link to her last post dated April 12th 2016.

    1. Hi Al,

      Yes! I would love to talk with Emma. It may be hard to do though. Emma does not write in her blog about anything that could help me find her.

      * Like an email address?
      * Last name?
      * Site number?

      Al, are you able to help?

      George

    2. Hi again, Al,

      My friend Pete Olson, who's hosting me at Jojoba, came over and told me that he knew Judy.

      [BTW: In the reply comment to you above, I wrote about "Emma". I now know that Emma is Judy's 9 year old dog!]

      Judy lives only 2-sites away from the site where I am staying. Pete and I walked over, and Judy came out. I introduced myself. And we had a very nice chat. Talked well over an hour. It went from daylight to pitch darkness while we three talked.

      Judy, in my opinion is a wonderful lady. I am sooooo happy to have met her.

      Judy and I have made plans tomorrow morning. We are going to take pics together. I'm going to publish my pic of Judy and myself on my Blog! Man-O-Man! Good time! 😎

  3. Lazy Daze is a top of the line unit. I know several people who own one. I'm anxious to see what you have to say.

    1. Hi LBnMex,

      I agree with you 110%. I toured the plant twice. The last time, the father hosted the tour. He passed away a while back.

      The Lazy Daze workmanship looks gorgeous. The father of the current owner, just raved about Lazy Daze.

  5. George, the bird lady's name is Judy. Bell, I think. Emma is her black dog. I always followed her blog; really miss hearing from her. When I saw where you are, I thought---that's where Judy is!!! I am glad Al asked you to see if you can meet her. She is one really neat person.
    As are you!

    1. Hi RnR,

      Isn't that funny? I found out who Emma is this evening when Pete and I walked to chat with Judy.

      Judy is really a nice lady.
