This publish might include affiliate hyperlinks. See our affiliate disclaimer right here.

We’ve had a number of individuals point out to us that they too have a dream of sooner or later shopping for a campground, so we’re excited to proceed sharing a number of the good & unhealthy of constructing a park from the bottom up.

Truthfully, the campground course of has been fairly enjoyable.

We now have a dozen large schematics the place we get to paint in concepts and lay out the park. These extremely giant web site plans additionally serve a twin objective for giant coloring pages for Ellie.

Since buying the property we’ve already hosted so many mates and made new ones by our Hipcamp itemizing.

Cheers from final evening’s crew of campers 🥂


Yesterday I spent the afternoon doing price comparisons and studying evaluations on industrial bathroom paper.

Okay, possibly that final one was much less enjoyable. However bathroom paper evaluations are actually comical, plus now I do know that recycled paper towels and bathroom paper price lower than common. Fascinating and ineffective data, I do know!


We now have one minor snag.

Which I’m selecting to see as a ridiculously hilarious downside as a result of after the previous few weeks, we now have formally gotten to that degree.

We are able to’t discover the mailbox.

And belief me, I’ve appeared all over the place.

There’s no mailbox on the property.

I’ve pushed previous neighboring mailboxes and maybe fairly creepily learn all of the numbers to double-check that they aren’t ours.

The earlier proprietor has no concept the place it’s.

The earlier earlier proprietor has no concept.

Heath visited with a number of neighbors who additionally do not know.

The earlier earlier earlier proprietor was the Montrose Faculty District. I’ve left them a message, however the college district final held lessons there in 1992…so I’m not holding my breath that they’ve been holding mail for the previous 30 years.

The man on the publish workplace stated if I can show I’m the proprietor by bringing within the deed, then he can discover me a set of keys to the mailbox.

“The mailbox, the place?” I requested.

“I don’t know,” he shrugged.

And I’ve formally spent weeks making an attempt to resolve this thriller. Tomorrow my plan is to indicate up on the publish grasp’s workplace as a result of she has not answered her telephone but and has no voicemail… 🤔

We all know mail is being delivered as a result of the individuals who have despatched us mail—necessary individuals like our insurance coverage firm and our financial institution and town and other people whose mail you 100% don’t wish to lose—haven’t had mail returned to them.


Someplace in Montrose county lays an more and more thick stack of mail with my title on it.

The thriller continues.

Of all issues, discovering the mailbox has simply been essentially the most troublesome problem we’ve encountered previously two months since we’ve bought this property.

(Honorable point out goes to changing the complete bathroom after the inspector tell us there’s a particular facet of the bathroom the place the flusher have to be in an ADA accessible lavatory.)

Hopefully by subsequent week I’ll lastly put this loopy lengthy search to mattress.

In any other case, you could find me sitting by the street in a garden chair ready for a mailman to drive by so I can flag him down and query him. Nobody can say no to a large pregnant lady.

That’s what constructing a campground seems to be like this week. We hope to have extra thrilling updates within the close to time period, however for now we’d simply love to simply accept some mail 🤪
