According to the build date it is just over 21 years old and the A/C still works great.

If I idle it a bit it blows a smidgin of blue when finally underway for about a block.

Loves going fishing into some pretty rough trails to outback trout lakes.
Have you considered changing over to an NP231 with part time 4wd? It sounds like your Grand might be worth saving at a reasonable cost, and NP231s are cheaper and more available. Here's a link to look at:

Hey Larry... at the Casey's Store they had the Wheat and the German Pilsner. Thought I would start with the Pilsner. Drove by the microbrewery but will go in another day. The Pils is light - tasty but a bit flat to me. Glad I only bought 6 of them. By third one they'll be great.

They are instructed on where they are to park, you might have settled right in the middle of their space!
Walmart employees park in the spaces where the lines between the spaces are painted a different color from those close to the store. White and yellow, I forget which is which. Only reason I know this is because a group of them leaving work saw Sena and wanted to meet her and we started chatting.

We are short enough that we can park in just 2 spaces end to end. I avoid lots of problems parking in the next to last customer spots.

Whew! Finally caught up!

Mel has all of the pictures and will be posting them. It would strain my data limits to do so.

Palo Duro Canyon State Park is a MUST see stop if you are ever traveling across I-40 in Texas. Simply gorgeous! And so much history! They have a really nice pavilion and group camping areas that would make it a good place to hold a GC some day! During summer months the musical Texas! is performed in the amphitheater.

We had a delightful mini-C with Mel, her sister Ruth and BIL Michael. Sena loves all of them. Kate had to w#%k and couldn't join us.

There was a tent hybrid near us with a sign on the side proclaiming, "The Journey IS the Destination". We could never catch them there, but left a note asking if they are RVMs and explained what that meant. (PA plates on the trailer)

And ... the girls and I missed a mini-C with Jeff and Marcia, aka PT Jeep, by 81 miles or 18 hours, whichever comes first.

Hey all !!!

Yeah We were going to try to mini-c in Santa Rosa but we were actually 24 hours to early. We would have enjoyed it immensely. On the way in we passed two huge stockyards and the ummmm country air was a tad thick, thankfully here at Corral RV Park that is but a distant memory. Tomorrow onward to the Wizard of Oz museum in Liberal, KS. Then Boot Hill Casino in Dodge City, KS.

Cheers !!!!

RV Repair Update

Today I spent my afternoon fixing the one last item from the Hail of a Curiosity…Installed the Lexan smoked skylight above the shower. Now the roof is back to the way it was prior to the storm.
