Hello All !!!!

Greetings from Bryce Canyon, well we got to go out for a very mild mannered Jeep trip today, no real rock climbing but lots of great things to see, a herd of antelope that were very majestic, and mule deer that were just as healthy as the antelopes, and even a very active group of prarie dogs that were running about without a care in the world. And Eagles that were not so happy that we stopped to enjoy them.

I know, I know pictures or it didn't happen, my only excuse is that I was driving.

Cheers !!!!

As is often the way at these Grand (not to be confused with Grande) Curiosities, things start out slowly and steadily pick up momentum.... look what showed up this afternoon...

Well, just add this to the hole in the rode.

Today we only traveled 156 miles. Pulled into Monterey Pines RV Campground and signed in. Knowing the area it is best to unhook at the check in site. Did that. Unhooked put everything away. Earlene asked if she should go ahead of me and park the car. I agreed and off she went. I followed, and as I'm going along I kept wondering what the noise was. I thought it was a bearing in the front wheel. I kept listening but i could not identify it. We have a pull thru (if you could call it that) and I pulled in. Not level at all with the front a lot higher than the rear. I decided to back up and at that time Earlene said, "Come here and look at this!" Somehow when I was storing the tow bar it did not seat correctly (Blue Ox). The drive from check-in to the site is about 1/4 miles. It had dragged and did its dragging wonder on the tow bar and when I backed up it dug in and bent one leg. The cover was shredded. Not a good situation. Anyhow, Blue Ox came through again and will ship directly to me since there is not a dealer withing 100 miles. Only $1015 later and the new tow bar will be here Wednesday by 10:00 a.m. I'm footing the little extra for next day delivery.

Cheer up Mel, things could be a lot worse.

Had a similar problem with Tinker on our last big trip in her. Hit up a local auto-wrecker and he let me pull an alternator from a GMC 30 and he pocketed $40.00 and Tinker had a replacement alternator. That was somewhere near Omaha.

Somehow, Wayne, your story isn't very comforting. So far, things have been doing nothing but getting worse. Lol. But you have our full and complete sympathy! How the heck do you think the tow bar got wonky???

We're hoping that Cummins will come through and take care of whatever is causing the oil leak. I'm sorta on pins and needles. No word today. We can't absorb another $4600 or $2600 bill for repairs so close together. Don't think I've even mentioned that the rear camera is not working. No signal to the monitor in the cab. So, I'm backing up blind. Heck, at this rate I'll never get to retire. Ha!
