Thanks all in your hilarious replies to ! They made my day.

We discovered the answer!

Final week after actually 20 unanswered cellphone calls, I waited exterior the postmaster’s workplace making an attempt to get solutions. Which went like:

Postman: “Oh sorry, everyone seems to be out proper now altering a tire for a stranded mail service.”

Me: “Oh, are you able to assist me?”

Postman: “Nah, I’m off the clock.”

Me: “Your hours say you don’t shut for 10 extra minutes.”

Postman: 🤷🏻‍♂️

I didn’t get any useful info aside from to “come again when they’re accomplished with the tire, however then it’ll be after hours so that you would possibly as nicely simply wait till subsequent week.”

The college district referred to as me again and let me comprehend it’s been 18 years since they final ran courses out of our constructing, so that they now not accepted mail for the tackle, as I suspected.

In the meantime, Heath spent the entire day working from the campground, which he’s how he spends most workdays, and stored a watch out for our mail service.

No luck.

As a result of naturally, the mail service got here by in the course of the one hour Heath left to seize lunch, so that they missed one another 🙈

However by pure luck, our contractor occurred to cease by the property on the time! And the mailman stopped him.

“Hey, I’ve some mail for this tackle,” the mailman mentioned to our contractor. “The 4th mailbox over there’s empty. Simply put your quantity on it, I can stick your mail in there. It’s all in my truck.”

The contractor texted this data to Heath and Heath referred to as me to let me know the excellent news (however not till after I gave the postman a withering search for skipping out of labor early and refusing to assist me).

Evidently, I purchased stickers at Walmart and we now have a mailbox!

And I didn’t even should whip out my garden chair to maintain a watch out for our mailman 💌

One drawback fastened!

We’ve spent the remainder of this week firming up the designs of the RV park and having very intense discussions about issues like street width, the place is the perfect place for dumpsters, and a few storm drainage conversations which have gone manner over my head. (That’s while you simply nod alongside to what the civil engineer suggests and scribble down phrases to Google while you get off the Zoom name.)

Now that we’ve nearly finalized our designs, subsequent comes creating the development designs. AKA the place {the electrical} strains run, the place water pipes go, the place sewer drains, and all types of issues that we’re about to find out about.

This entire course of has been an enormous studying curve for Heath and me, and we love attending to share all these ups and downs and bizarre tales with you.
