This is my week for tough repairs. Yesterday I took the black tank gate valve off hoping the leak was just debris blocking the gate from fully closing. WRONG! The part will be here tomorrow. It's a cheap part and easy to replace, but not any fun even after a through cleaning of the black tank. At least the sun is shining

Ok, I'm checking in, Mutant brothers and sisters. We are still in beautiful Virginia. Love LOVE it here. For some reason, my phone won't let me post more than one pic at a time, so here comes a string of photos and accompanying stories...

The apple crumble pie I made from scratch yesterday with Virginia Granny Smiths ...

You are all invited over for pie and coffee. I made enough pie dough for 3 more pies.

Replace the door when the seal goes bad? Sounds like another gotcha by an RV product supplier. No wonder people hate Norcold!
You betcha.

We have befriended the people at a local RV place and they are on the lookout for a replacement fridge for Gracie. The only stipulation is that it has to be Dometic.

I missed out last winter while we were on the great Margarita Hunt or the desert afterglow out in the Cottonwood area. Hopefully they will come up with one soon as we are again trying to re-ceiling Gracie and install some updates to make life within more fun.

Took a drive on a portion of the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, which most of you probably know is overseen by the National Park Service ....

And happened upon the Blue Ridge Music Center. WOW!!! If you are ever in the area, it's a must-see place. Operated by the NPS, you get the history of mountain music, some great videos and museum-type displays of old instruments. Fascinating! ALSO ... and this is the best part ... they have live music from time to time! We got to hear these folks ....

Darn, it didn't upload my video. :(. Anyway, there was a great 4 piece band playing Blue Ridge Mountain Music. They were great! I'll post a photo, since the video won't upload.

We should have driven it up to MMDC West and made dinner for Don and Colleen. It's only 4 hours and 40 minutes up the road.
A two day trip for you. LOL

Hi! back at ya! Good to see you and Kate are still having fun!

It's starting to get cold and rainy here in the PNW. We'll be heading south as soon as I get some repair issues fixed. This is the not so fun part of fulltiming.

Depends on what's in between. Could make 3 or 4 stops of 2 or 3 days or more.
