Docs say they're planning a stress test, then send her home where there is a Wayne!

I think the test has started!

Well my site leveling turned out to be a lot of wasted time and money. Carl, you are right, this is a job best left to professionals with heavy equipment.

Oh the humanity!

Sorry to hear that, Barb. I still admire your spunk & drive, though. You accomplish things many of us would not even think to tackle.

You also seem to know when to call it quits ... also a valuable skill!

Wow... Az 93 from Vegas to Ely is one long hill, with a couple climbs to 6200 feet. Fortunately, you don't take a right at the sign (and dirt road) to Wheeler Peak 13,065 feet. Even though we left Vegas about 9:30 this morning, it was pushing 100 and kept rising and falling as we went up and down. Just long, slight to modest upward and a couple 4 mile 6% grades. As long as I ran in 3,4 gear at 45 to 50 mph the Hot Coolant Bell wouldnt go off. It is probably one of the easiest hill runs there is but so hot... thank goodness for generators and a.c. units. Could not run the dash air... it would pretty quickly ring the bell... A couple bio breaks along the way. 82 degrees now vs 109 in Vegas. Big improvement.

Congrats on a successful exodus, Flagg's! Bonita has been a good girl.
Annie, I love your salute to RVMdom. Thanks!

OK., I haven't figured out this multiquote thing, so before I get too far in my catching up... Di, I wish I had seen that post about checking out the lake of the ozarks campground before I left... I'm home now, and was half the day Saturdsay ferrying campers into Warsaw to do the laundry thing for those who were going to be there the next week.

Also, I noticed Omms were needed for mel's mom. Those have now been made. Ok, I started on page 4814 and It looks like there are well over 10 pages to catch up on! I'll see the page count when I hit submit reply.

I failed to mention... 93 is undivided 2 lane, uneven shoulder, gravel, but pretty good road with the exception of a stretch marked loose gravel strategically placed right where you don't want to see gravel. At the top of one of the 6k passes at thr 6% grade of S turns. Again - nothing of consequence but what should have been about 4.5 hours tops, took 6 hours with 3 roadside stops. And by that I mean, 2 in a turnout on the side of the road. The 1 in Calaiente is actually just parking on the side of the road as it goes through town. The Sinclair station was on the left side of the road. Further down you could park in front of the old train station. I think Annie has a pic.

So who's been to the Great Basin National Park?
