Making progress

I have had a hard time posting because the wifi here at the RV camp is not letting me stay on long enough to make a post or upload photos. I think it is because the equipment isn’t up to the task. So, I am awake at 3:30 in the morning and “viola”! I am on the internet 😀

I have been deep in into the procedure to acquire a permanent place here in San Felipe. Yesterday I met with the owner of Pete‘s Camp with my real estate agent and we discussed many issues. There are over 250 residential units and home owners association is an active organization, they have their own fire department, trash pick-up, plans for city potable water and there are land lines to every lot for telephone and electric-there is also available through the telephone company hard line internet connection (Yea!). I have already gotten through the owner a man to clear the lot of the sticky plants and the trailer is to moved too! I also got the scoop on the rules only three rules; no cactus fences, no water tanks on the roofs, and set backs are to be three feet/one meter from the lot line. I also got the name of a trusted builder recommended by the owner and the neighbors to do the construction of any kind on the lot.

I also met another neighbor, Yolanda, who is the sister-in-law of the owner she lives two lots down from me and works at the camp restaurant. I also met the owner’s wife she runs the kitchen. Another relative runs the office here in S.F. and two others run the office in the states.

I may have a lead on a car here one of the neighbors has an older two door jeep for sale and my neighbors are contacting him for particulars about it and I’ll get more information tomorrow, maybe.

So things are moving on by fits and starts, but moving on now to get the construction (Manuel) to put in the connections for electric and water system then I can move onto the lot, and figure what to do for a permanent residence there with a regular bath, kitchen etc. Lots of plans swirling in my head of course there will be obstacles to overcome but what fun doing that 🙂

  1. See you are back in your nesting mode. Hope everything works out the way you want. Enjoy the adventure.

  2. I like it a lot here and think I will like spending my winters here so I am getting a lot and getting it set up for an RV. I’ll see what happens from there. But having my own lot saves a lot of hassles and I can fix things so I can be comfortable without getting someone’s permission to do something and I’ll have a lot more room.

  3. It looks beautiful there! We were watching pelicans here at the Salton Sea today. It has been beautiful, but I think we’ll move on tomorrow and go back to Indio for a day, then on to Yuma. I enjoy your blog a lot. We had problems with wifi too and went to Verizon store and had an app installed on our cell phones so we can connect that way. More money, but then we get connected when we want. Haven’t had great success in RV Parks.

    • The pelicans are an interesting bird to watch there are huge flocks of them here and when they are fishing it is quite a sight as they crash into the water for fish. The seem to like gliding over the water just a foot or so above the surface.

      The wifi thing can be a pain in the tush, I was having fits this morning trying to use
      Skype my call kept getting dropped just as I was getting to the interesting part. I finally got the call done, but what a hassle.
