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.

Pardon my French in advance: well, Crap! Really sorry, but at least the fix is available.

Welcome, Ted, and x2 what Possum said!

I'm looking forward to meeting you and the Possum and many more I haven't yet slapped eyes on. It's a great family!

Anyhow, Kate, you have a lot to be proud of.
Wayne, you are so right about Kate being charming.

She calls herself a "social introvert" - she can be very sociable in a group, but it totally saps her energy. She is a true introvert who can come out of her shell when called upon. But she can go weeks without seeing people and be fine. That would make me crazy!

Actually western Pennsylvania or western New York might be good areas for GC,
for those who choose not to go on to Canada. Might be more reachable for some who are limited time, too.

Diane toftSFM#64....... (The Original Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant) and is retired, duh!
Like that idea, Di. Also, Kentucky has some beautiful places. I lived in Louisville and then Lexington (or just outside of) at one time.

Welcome to the family! We (Mary and I) live in central Virginia. Give us a shout if you're in the Charlottesville/Shenandoah Valley area. We can have a mini-C!
