Well RVM2, just hanging here in the heat at present. It will be at least a couple of weeks before we can make our "escape" and pull the "sunbird" act by heading north into the cooler country. I put off my annual oil change and service on the old beast and am now regretting it. It's gonna be HOT now to pull some maintenance before heading out. Oh well, sure beats paying somebody else to do it

Plans are to head for some high country in NM and hopefully spend some quality time in some forest svc CG's. I know there's some great country throughout NM, and we aim to see some of it. We're some of the world's worst tourists, but are world class "relaxers"!

All they asked for was the pics I took. That pin was securely locked in place when I left cause I always check it as a part of my pretrip inspection so I can't figure out how it got out of there. Thank God for the safety cable that held it to the coach.

Will do Steve. The insurance adjuster examined the car damage so hopefully they get the green light on Monday to start the repairs. As soon as I get it back I will have the base plate to examine too cause Blue Ox has asked for pics of it as well. Maybe they will come thru with some adjustments to our favor!

If they are out with you they are well qualified.

I really glad you two are fine.

Are you buying another Blue Ox? Just curious, as we are about to buy the same type of towing system.

Hope the winds blowing for you at least.

Yes, there was a nice wind coming off the sound. If I stayed out of the sun it was quite pleasant even when the temps got up to 84* this afternoon. I had to run to Home Depot and every other customer had either a fan or air conditioner in tow. These folks up here aren't used to hot weather.

Be careful when you get to Texas! The heat can be a killer.

Yep we have had a lot of safe towing miles with the Blue Ox system so I will replace it with another. Hopefully the base plate will provide some answers as to why it came uncoupled.

Herb and Barb, will you be anywhere near Port Angeles WA? Denise and I are willing to walk on the Coho and meet you there or take one of the Jet Cats to downtown Seattle to do a mini-C.
