Dwayne, Ohms from our house to yours. Hopefully you can get it repaired and underway, soon and at minimal cost.

Dwayne, we feel your pain. Ohmmmmms heading your way.

We picked up Bow at the Cummins shop. $4600. Ouch. But she's running like new now .... after they jumped her. They had turned on both coach ACs and left em on. (What the hey???!!!) Batteries were stone cold dead. I think everybody in that shop went in Bow to look around. When I paid out, the woman at the register said, "I like that your motorhome has laminate flooring instead of carpet. Looks nice."

Paid Freightliner $2,700 for the new compressor they installed. But, the dash AC is not blowing cold at all. Do I have any recourse except to argue with with them if they try to charge me again to fix it properly? I need to find out if there is any warranty on their work.

Wayne, how is Citrus behaving? Ohmmmmms for continued healthy RV running! (I think Bow must be older sister to Citrus.) Y'all are in one of the most beautiful places n the country right now. Know you are enjoying it. Post more pics, please!

Time to get ready for w#@k! Hope all Mutants everywhere have a happy day on the Rainbow!

My Beaver was in the shop last week. Going to pay the bill today.

I'll let you know what that set me back......

Sorry Dwayne and Shara...
Think we have all been there lately. We havent been able to get the slide wall fixed because of health issues.. But we still have to get the wall reattached before we can even go out for a short trip.....

Is there a temp Guage on the tranny... did it over heat, blow fluid or just strip out...? What tranny is it? Were you able to get off the highway and someplace safe.

We're sending tranny Ommms your way. Keep us updated.

Your safety always comes first so that's a good thing. Maybe you'll catch a break and it won't be catasteoohic failure.

Keep us looped in. Again, Omms your way.

Our neighbors - the Rubicon Gang (as I dubbed them) rolled out this morning. The three had been on the road together 25 days and are heading back to California. They debunk the theory that Rubicons are for show!

Looks like it's raining on quite a few mutants so their rainbows will be brighter tomorrow... Keeping you all in my thoughts.
Tomorrow, Bob is taking the Honey to a fella to see about getting the cab air fixed. Not something that broke on us, we bought it without it being functional, figuring we could run the genny and house air and it would suffice for our needs... but driving into the desert has him thinking twice about it. I think we are gonna go by Albuquerque route and turn right to get to Bryce. That puts us getting in on Wednesday instead of Tuesday. (he wants to stop and fly some on the way...)
More about flying later...

Is that Wednesday the 19th...
Sounds like 2 wise decisions - a/c and southern route!!

Can't wait to hear about and see and take pics of the magnificent mutant in his flying machine!

Big hugs await all who venture to Bryce!

Ta Da ! Got our coach back from the dealer. Seems shipshape and eager to head for Bryce on Saturday a.m. Itchin' to hit the rainbow. Can't wait to see our next 4,000 to 5,000 miles of these beautiful United States.

Bad news - - sorta. Doctor has put me on a fast acting insulin at meal times along with my once-a-day shot at night. Monitoring my levels that often may be enough to encourage me to seek alternative diet options.

Tomorrow we are taking oldest GS to a Cincinnati Reds game (that 3 GS's and 5 games this summer). He's 12 and was the leader in all the offensive and defensive stats on his travel team. He's a catcher. He's grown around 7-8 inches in the past year.

Wish us "happy trails to you" as we ease on out to Bryce. Ohms to all that need them (health related and mechanical).
