How cool is that??

May need to do a trip to Southern Ontario next march!
Dennis, you are speaking Canuckistani again? Does bisnonno mean great-grandpa or were you just so excited about the news that you committed the worst finger slide of the century?

Concerning ants -- I had harvester ants get inside when we were in Florida. Once we got parked here in Seattle I sprayed the MH tires and all cords and hoses that touch the ground and then enter the MH with ant and roach spray. It solved my ant problem. I hope it won't shorten the tire life. Anyone know?

Yes, the Bisnonno is actually Italian. Thanks everyone for sharing our joy. Denise is a very happy nonna and about to become a bisnonna.

We installed a new condenser and then one of the tow companies damaged it. Cummins mechanic made a mistake and it cost you a ton of hassles, two missed weekends of camping and a lot of anxiety. Then we had your coach for 16 days before we looked at it. Well, we are going to fix the condenser for you, no charge." I thanked him as I got choked up and cried for joy.

Cummins in Amarillo came through. Lubbock Freightliner guys Rance and Cory are the best. I'm going to deliver pizzas to all the guys at Freightliner on Friday, but shhhhh ... it's a surprise! They really are terrific folks.
Wonderful news for you two! Glad to hear they came through as they did.

So glad they are playing fair. Did you ask them to give Bow a thorough look see... maiantenence due, coming maintenence, etc. Have em show ya if possible.

Note: Joe Ely at the Cactus 9/17 ...cool:
And Mac Davis is playing an outdoor concert pretty soon but I can't remember the date.

We have a maintenance schedule and the previous owner kept very thorough records of maintenance.

You deserve a bunch of good news and great happenings. The rainbow arrises.
Lol! Yep, the Rainbow arises, indeed. I just hope we can work in one more weekend out in Bow before my surgery on Sept 23!

The problem there is that two different tow companies towed it; one on Friday night and a different one on Monday. No way to prove which one did the damage.

But now might not be the best time because of the fires. I enjoy taking I-84 all the way to Portland and then I-5 north to Seattle.
Well aware of I84 along the Columbia River. We did that in 2013 on our way to Seattle and finally to Alaska. Down right gorgeous. Did I happen to mention that this country is full of awesome sights to see?

Much congrats all around RVMville!
X2 to al previous cudos.
And a Great Grand Pappy? Woot!
Now about that Geocacher truck....ohms for a solid fix, Debby and Dale.
Barb, your gift for quaint phrasing will always amaze and make me lawf!
Steve, one review on McCalls from just one level of crust should not be enough to convict, me thinks. But, alternatives via local RVMs is good stuff.
Today, a slow stroll and drive thru Capitol Reef NP. Our 1st tour circled the park and brought out questions. Today, answers!
