Hi Marty. Hi Bob!
So that's actually the problem here. No breeze to speak of. It was actually pleasant in the shade. But, I was organizing the bays. Tomorrow the scooter gets a bath and stowed, the bike goes on the rack, and CRVMutant gets hooked up. We roll Monday for Grand Island KOA for 4 nights. The on to the MMD&C country club for a 3 grand nights. Life is great on the rainbow!

So MartySQ, what part of the map are you hanging out on for that cool weather?

How it stays dry in the rain is s mystery to me!
Happy Trails, STMs

For those of you who are unfamiliar with miniature drones ... this is an eavesdropping spy drone from Canada. It can spend over nine hours clinging to wet surfaces before buzzing back to its spy base. Data collected will enable large mosquito drones to accurately target juicy RV inhabitants.

Barb you're so right; the weather is so off the norm up there. I can't believe how crazy the weather has been everywhere. We are almost to Boise ID and it's been running between 103-108. I call Van Horn today and it's on the 80's there.

Hope the winds blowing for you at least.

Okay Your Roundness I saw that! Just cause I ain't talkin much don't mean I don't have my one good eye on you!

Well it's bout time to report in to you muteys. On our way back from Brenham last weekend we had been driving for almost an hour when I hear and feel a loud thump in the rear of the coach and about the time my eyes glance to the rear view camera my Jeepy starts swerving back and forth trying to drag the coach with it. I was doing bout 50 mph and started shutting it down when Jeepy tried to jump in the back of Jenny. Scared the crap outta me! I get stopped and go back to find the drivers side tow bar on the ground with the toe hook still attached but bent like a pretzel. The one remaining tow bar is bent badly too and the hitch shoved into the grill of the jeep. Jeep is leaking tranny fluid apparently from the cooler up under the radiator. I have to start the Jeep and back it off the hitch so I can disconnect everything. Four hours later the Jeep is towed 97 miles to Waco to a Jeep dealer and I still don't know how that tow bar came off the drivers side of the car. Blue Ox had no explanation either after I sent them the pics I had taken. Sooooo, $3800 worth of damage to the jeep, and I have to purchase another tow bar and base plate which should come in around $1300 plus install and I still have to have the tow hitch on Jenny inspected cause it appears a welded support is broken as well. This summer isn't starting out too well for the #31's. Somehow I have to get it all back together before we leave in about three weeks!

Ya'll have a blessed day on the rainbow! I'll be checkin in from time to time.

Herb ... did Blue Ox ask for the tow bar and base plate so they could analyze it? Many times they do. If they discover a flaw, you get new stuff free.
