Temperature 78 Degrees With Humidity Feels Like 85
Repairs Made, Ready to Move Out
Park Is Filling Up
Well, I tried to sleep in but no go. I guess I just have too much on my mind.
Time to get up on the roof and caulk the vents in the area that is leaking. But wait, were is my caulking? Ugh, I used the last tube and forgot to replace it. Time to visit Camping World which was a ride of about thirty minutes each way.
Oh yes, while there I bought two tubes of self leveling sealer. The first tube I used to caulk around the two vent tubes in the area that was leaking. Yes, I used the whole tube.
I’m so confident that I solved the problem I optimistically put the light back up. Hey, either the leak has been plugged or we’re going to have to do a leak test to find it. Either way the light needed to go back up.
On the way back from Camping World the park office called to let us know we had received a package from UPS. Oh happy, happy, joy, joy that meant the mirror arm had arrived.
It is an electric mirror which I didn’t see as much of a problem. Cut and splice and that would be that. Until they threw me a curve. There are two orange wires and I’m not sure which one gets spliced to which. For now, therefore, the mirror is up and usable but has to be adjusted manually. But that’s OK, once adjusted it will probably never be moved again. I’ll get the wiring diagram sometime in the future and then I’ll hook everything up.
The bottom line, we’re ready to move again. So tomorrow we will and guess who has a big smile on her face because we are.
Slowly but surely the park is beginning to fill up. This is probably the first park that we’ve been in that has more sites filled than empty. Maybe there are really a bunch of new RV’ers out there after all.
Remember this from yesterday? This is an actual road worthy (?) rig. The owner comes every year for a 14 day stay and then he is on his way. I would not want to be within a mile of this thing when it is out on the road. Let’s be honest here, this is an accident waiting to happen. This is an excellent reason why a lot of parks have a ten year old rule.
That was our day on The Road of Retirement. I’m taking the half glass view of things and believing it can only get better from this point on. We’ll start, as usual, packing up tonight and finish up tomorrow. Our trip is another short hop so we won’t leave here until around 9:30/10 am.
Thanks for your company. We always appreciate when you stop by and we so enjoy your comments. Catch you tomorrow.
These are the voyages of Elvira and her two intrepid travelers. Our continuing mission: to explore as many new states as possible, to seek out new acquaintances and make new friends, to boldly go where we have never been before.
See you on down the road!
