Good news, “OK” news. First, the leak is not related to coolant lines for the dash heater. There are 2 separate aluminum lines that have corroded through due to chaffing on their mounts. That stops us from any temporary fix. The good news is that the repair facility has those parts in stock! That is a miracle! We will be delayed because we need prior approval from my warranty company before repairs can begin so we will spend the night in their parking lot waiting for them to open at 7 am. It could be a lot worse and these kinds of things go with the RV life style. With a little luck we will be on the road by early afternoon and catching up with the other 11 coaches in our group. If it takes longer we will catch them on Tuesday. We feel very lucky that when we have had these kinds of major repairs we have had access to relatively quick repairs and not been stranded on the side of the highway. We don’t even want to be in need of a tow.
Yes, that's quite impressive. Continued luck on the fixes as it seems the stars are aligning for you!

At least they are speaking English again, although I'm sure I sound super sexy speaking French. You can meet a overweight and good looks lacking person and give them a French accent and you have a fat ugly person speaking French. Funny how that is.
Now Tim, wee wee in Arkansan is not the same as we we in French. Stick to English.

Thank you,

Actually these WM gatherings are pretty friendly. Many of the stores close down at 10, that's when the families break out the balls and bicycles and neighbors come out to visit. Funny watching the teenage girls inch closer and closer to the building, getting the best wifi signal.

Ok you tech heads, I can get a good wifi signal on IPhone but won't connect on IPad setting in same spot. What's up with that?


A first to report!
After seeing mile after mile of watch out for Moose signs, we finally saw a Moose in the wild.

DebandDale so what's so hard about bagging a moose, I mean they're as big as a house! 😀

I think you answered your own question! Finding them and having them stand still long enough. Hope you missed yours with the MH.

Glad to hear you will be able to get it fixed quickly and back on the road with the group. Can't wait to meet you in Clarkston. Sent you our phone #'s in a PM so we can get together.

Hey Barry and Pat

If you have time, consider taking this combo trip that Sue and I went on a few years back.

http://grandcanyon.com/tours/south-r...dventure-tour/

You do have to get to the airport very early (6am) but it was worth it. The first part of the tour is the flight along the south rim and up to Page. (because the flight was overbooked, they found another pilot and we had our very own Cessna) At Page we all got on big Jeeps and were taken by Navajo guides to the Antelope slot canyon where we entered a truely amazing place. Afterwards, we were bussed down to the foot of the Lake Powell dam and boarded a large rubber raft to gently float down the Colorado River. At the halfway point we beached and enjoyed a splendid buffet lunch which had been set up for us. At Lee's ferry we got out to be bussed back to the lodge, stopping on the way of course at a large Indian trading post for some retail therapy.
It was a very long but really enjoyable day - one that we can certainly recommend.

Hope to meet up with you guys again some day.
