whew what a trip!!!

This is a trip I hope to not repeat for a while. Wife and I took off in some messy weather to go to grandson BD party Indiana to Louisiana. Stopped at truck wash in middle tennis while waiting to go in an 18 wheeler clipped my coach on left rear. Jumped in toad and ran him down got that settled. Go on to Louisiana to a hotel that has 6 spots in back with elec & water have used in past. Second day there came back to coach no power. They said would fix it we had to leave for a while so I told them not to plug my coach in until the finished work. When I got back they had pitched my shore cord to side of coach. Office said all was fixed so we plugged up next day we took off and down the road about 6 hours I realized batteries were drained. Had it checked was told inverter was fried, drove on toward. Indiana 5 hours blew a tire was lucky no damage . Finally drove from 6 pm til130am in sleet and rain with ice all over coach, really tired, but other is a
Point to this tale
I love it
Guess I got all my bad mojo at once let's keep em rolling and wave when we pass

thanks

Thanks to all. 4 year old had a great party and got lots of hugs and kisses was worth every bit of that stuff. Dow has been little slow to accept the full time mode. But we have to because of her work lucky me. I was thrilled since we have lived in Louisiana many years , but while all this was going on she said lets get on back home, hippie I was thrilled

I had a darn Black Cat run across the road in front of me this morning. I quickly tried to turn my head not to see it. It was too late! Darn I hope I don't have your luck!!

It's a pleasure to read a post about someone who has gone through what you have and still have such a pleasant demeanor in the face of so many mishaps.

Good on ya!

Hopefully you are good for a while!
