It was a minor skirmish to get checked into this room--pure luck prevailed and we dodged a huge bullet. meanwhile, it's taken 15-20 minutes to configure the WIFI. As you can tell, we must have "got it right" since we are here, so to speak. This place is so over-the-top Rancho it's ridiculous--there's a remote control for the curtains! Press a button and the fireplace comes on for an hour. There's a private balcony with a high dollar view and the place is like so over-the-top. I will proc some pix and post them up later. In the meantime, I am simply overjoyed that I made it past teh check-in desk. WHEW! That was a close call--too close for comfort.
I'm not gonna hang out here in this room long---I see a great lakeside trail over yonder--I'm outta here. I gotta get some fresh air and get outta the confines of this Rich Man's Paradise. Maybe I will go gnaw on a gneiss rock to feel more at home.
