First time to see fog in a long time. This is some real soup. Hopefully it burns off soon. We have about a 2 hour drive to MMDC Resort. Can't wait to hug a couple mutants! Hopefully Mr. Malone isn't on a binder.

So here's a ponder.
My windshield wipers are of unknown brand and orgin. Couldn't find refills or even loaded arms anywhere. Looked from Flagstaff to Pueblo. Ponder the nature of wipers... why would they be so hard to find???

Couldn't even find the loaded wiper arms. They mount with two screws. Ended up ordering refills from Fleetwood. Paid almost as much for freight as I did for the blades - maybe more. Had then sent 2 day UPS to MMDC Resort. Should be there today. Fingers crossed.

Found some 26 inche wipers inserts at NAPA but they didn't look like they would fit. Didn't want to experiment...

I hear ya, Steve. Mine were 80 bucks for the pair, not from Monaco, on sale, with shipping. The blade mounting gizmos are unique. Did not want to know what replacement wiper arms were!

Fog thicker than sea poop? Oops, finger slide!

Congrats on the new ride! I hope Shara can keep herself busy with the remodel, moving in, etc. some folks do better keeping busy, others find other ways to deal with their grief.

Congrats on a safe return. BTW...do you dump pressure out of the bed before you did any climbs?

Sounds like a nice day trip for us this summer and a trip down memory lane for you and Annie next summer.

I am looking forward to spending time with my DD and getting some RV projects done. I brought all my tools to her garage when I retired. Seattle has marvelous weather in the summer. I'll give a detailed campground report in a few dats. We are parked on street still. It takes 2 spotters to get me backed into our pad. Everything in Seattle is a tight fit.
