I didnt know you guys had grass at the Havasu house. Does it die in the summer due to the heat or do you guys keep it watered enough for it to live?
The grass was just added a few months ago. I didn’t think the seeds would work, but it did. Hoping it doesn’t die in the summer, but I have a feeling it will. The sprinkler is set up to run multiple times a day. I think it’ll be a trial and error type of thing. It’s nice to have some green in the backyard and less gravel is getting into the pool so that’s nice as well.

Awesome weekend out in Spangler this past weekend with great weather and no wind finally ! Im ready for boating but not ready to park the dirt toys just yet... Probably the last desert trip for us this season.

My wife wanted to drive back to camp after we left the Joint so I took full advantage by drinking myself stupid!! Also ran into one for the RDP locals while we were there.

Looks like a great time. I have never camped out there. May have to check it out after river season.

Oh ok was curious if you have had it awhile. I am back and forth on putting in real grass or fake grass in the backyard in Tucson. Not sure which way I want to go yet. Kelly says the real grass will cost a fortune in water but I think the fake grass will be too hot to use in summer time.

My buddy has a real nice fake lawn at his Rancho Sahuarita home. Kids and dogs use it all year. I’ll be adding some to my Green Valley home as soon as I get a dog. If you get it, use a good company. The guys he used dug down 6 inches just to install a good base. 5 years now and no upkeep, no issues, no mowing, and no sneezing.

Getting the old 76 Avenger ready for upholstery/new wheel and detail. It’s just good to have it back in front of the house. Lol

I love Avengers. Started way back when they used them in the Marine World water ski show in Redwood city.

Any chance he remembers the brand fake grass he choose so I can look into it? I appreciate the help as I am pretty sure we are doing fake grass.

Serious? New Elevators/Escalators!! They have been putting Band-Aid's on thes Old Ones for years.:confused:
Yes! They are doing all the elevators, except the north tower bank with the glass elevator for some reason. There is another crew there working on the escalators as well.
