I am SOOOOO glad the journey is the destination because today was one HARD journey. LOL

Sandee's mom is in the hospital and this morning was rough on her so we decided go get a late start. After we got to the hospital I went back with the car to move the coach out of our spot for the folks coming in later that day.

Went to start the generator for the AC and it cranked but wouldn't start. NOT GOOD. It is Friday leading to a 3 day weekend and do you think I could get it looked at? Incredibly...YES! I had to drive the coach back up to Normal, IL (about 1 hour) but they slammed me in at 2 PM! Found that I had a wire come disconnected from the governor module, put back together and BINGO...it sings. Even better yet, since they had done a 1000 hour service a couple months ago...NO CHARGE!!! I'm feeling immensely lucky but that put us WAY behind schedule. Fortunately that gave Sandee some more time with mom who was feeling a lot better by the afternoon.

We finally get out of town by 5:30 for a 2+45 drive to our destination. We get about 45 minutes out from our destination and I notice it is getting dark but I don't have headlights! OH MAN...what karma eating devil did I tick off? Now, the good news is that I totally redid my headlight system and I know exactly how it is set up. My first guess was a fuse and I was right. 10 minutes in a parking lot, fuse replaced and we are back on the road. OH YA.!

We get to our destination RV Park in the dark and man...were we bamboozled about how good of a site we had. Let just say that there is no feakin' way they should have put a 43' MH anywhere near that site! We are dodging tree limbs (still need to inspect the rig in daylight to make sure I didn't screw something up) narrow roads and a site that is bracketed by trees like sentry guards telling us...GO AWAY! We had folks coming out of there RVs helping us get out of this trap. BLESS THEIR HEARTS! We find our way back to the office, in as nice a manner as I could muster chew them out and they give us a new site. 1 hour after getting into the park we are finally in a spot for the night.

BUT...a bad day in the RV is better than a good day anywhere else. LOL

Don - fear not - something resembling your day will make it into the Murder at Rope Light Gulch Trilogy. You will play yourself in the movie!

Glad you are safe and Sandees mom is feeling a little better.

Sheesh! After reading all the sagas on the last few pages, I almost feel guilty that ours is sooooo tame! Our worst was having to negotiate stairs at train and Underground stations, and now that we are Q-Tips, someone generally stops to help.

One guy in London even passed us and then in a minute returned to carry my case up a flight. D'ya reckon guilt got to 'im and he thought of his own granny? Bless 'im!

At any rate, our ship has come in, bearing ... oh, not our first million? Shucks! She was due in at 7:00 and by George! When Martin peered out at 6:58 this morning, there she was:Click image for larger version

Like a mountain, she looks closer than she is. We briefly considered walking there. Very briefly. Taxi, it is.

By noon (6 am CDT) we'll be in the boarding process and out of wifi. We'll be in touch when we can. Doubt I'll be able to ketchup, though. One day is plenty over the morning cuppa!

Best wishes to Sandee's mom. Thanks, Jay, for checking in. And all others for stories, laughs, and words of wisdom.

Cheers, all!
Sue and Martin

I ate too much! <groan> Self discipline seems to have deserted me ... again. (Come baaaack! Shane, come back!) It had better return before noon or all is lost, and I come back a blimp!

Cheers!

NO KIDDING!

I wish I could say I got a good rest but I kinda tossed and turned all night fuming over the CG "adventure". I'm still kicking myself in the ars for going into this CG like a blind mouse in a maze. I really should have scouted it out with the toad first. (NOTE TO SELF - LEARN! )

As long as after my inspection I don't find any scratches I'll simmer down but if I do find something I'm gonna get madder at myself and then write a nasty note to the CG management for telling me that all of there sites are appropriate for a big rig. Well...no matter the condition of the coach...still is getting an ear full.

I will probably post something about this else ware on IRV2 and Google and Trip Advisor and...(Copy and Paste is such a devilishly good tool at times. LOL)

Well...need to get my big boy pants on and check out the coach in the light of day.

Actually "HSV" is the 3 letter Airport Code for Huntsville, AL - "Bama" of course is a nickname for Alabama and Bob, well, that's moi (ergo HSV Bama Bob

Clear as mud now right?
