Don't think I've seen so many trees out that way either, which makes it nice for shade.

Just got a call from the RV repair facility and they claim the unit is still two weeks and a weekend away from being ready.

Dang it anyway! Why is it that RVs take SO long to repair?

When I took Homer in for engine work I told them that we HAD to have it back that night. No place else is Sena proof. When it needed an extra part we came back the next day and they completed the job. I realize that body work is a different game, but this keeping an RV for months is ridiculous!

Ok, I’ll step down off the soapbox now.

The trees are next to the Verde River, the only river in AZ that flows all year. We have access from camp, but y’all ain’t gonna see any Steens kayaking!

The park is brand new, and the trees give great shade if you’re 2 inches wide! They a literally sticks.

The Verde River flows through the trees in the background

Our repair philosophy has always been to make the shop our “hostage”.
We are always there, always being obvious.

What the heck is a bollard? They must only have them in Canada.

Take note, Dennis and Irene. I bet if you threaten to move back into your home the completion date will magically change to an earlier day. I know they had to wait for parts, but it can’t take 80+ hours to do the fiberglass work. Maybe it's time to be the squeaky wheel?
