Larry and guys, yes, the kitchen is in the slide. But the white grey-water hose seems to be anything but flexible.

You can see the fresh water line zip-tied to the grey water hose. I thought about cutting the zip-tie to see if that would allow me to move the white hose. But, I'm not touching it. You guys know what you're doing with this kind of thing and I don't. (Besides, the Arther Itis makes it really hard to get up and down. He has taken over both knees and my left hip. Nasty booger, he is!)

We have another issue. I took the cracked sprayer (hangs beside toilet and looks just like the sprayer at your kitchen sink) to CW and they no longer carry that kind -- "discontinued" I was told. Went to Home Depot and the guy laughed. So, I'm thinking we cant even use ANY water on the way to CL because if you turn on the water, the end of the line that held the sprayer just spews water everywhere. I'll put up pictures in a bit.

Sigh. Murphy's law.

Mel

Marty, we love learning stuff like that also, that's why we offer to fix it. That way, we learn by our own mistakes, so when we need to do work on our rigs, we know what NOT TO DO!!!!!!!!

[just kidding Mel]

Most of MS seems to be CG desert, as Di indicated. Coming west on 82, we couldn't find anything near our route. Up toward Memphis on 55, yes. South on 55, also yes. Both too far. One state park, but poor enuff description that we didn't know if Bella would fit. (Free camping, though!)

Finally, a KOA near Starkville, not far behind us. Nice park on a dammed lake. Fishing from bank or pier, shade or open spots, level, water views and not crammed in. Very quiet, too. I'm loving it!

The rain has begun. What trip would be complete w/o summadat? Nice, quiet, straight down light rain. Not complaining!

CL tomorrow. If we weren't committed to MIP (Mutate In Public), I'd stay here another day or two!

Mel, if that pipe won't budge, get a bigger hammer. OK, maybe not. I have no doubt that between all the offered help, your entire coach might be completely re plumbed by Friday. It looks to me as if a previous owner used some ethnic engineering on it some years back.

At last year's GC my refrigerator died my first day there. I ordered a new cooling unit, had it shipped to CL and Dwayne and Jeff installed it for me. Papaw Steve's rear cap was coming off and I had some Eternabond that Dewayne used to get it secure enough to get him home. That's just the mutant way things work for RVMs.

I hope you're ready for sore ribs! It comes from laughing nonstop. Last year's GC was magic. It was like spending a week with my 45 best friends. It felt as if I'd known them all since childhood when in reality that was the first time I'd laid eyes on them.
