Travel Log – 8/27/2007
Day 2 was very busy, exciting, and encouraging. By the end of the day, we had the leak fixed, the wheel dismantled, problem diagnosed, parts ordered and mailed, groceries in the refrigerator, and some personal business handled. Phew!
The highlight of the day was the perfect job the tow company did towing the RV. Rick hooked up the RV to the truck and backed it up on the huge flat bed truck; then Sam and Moe chained the RV to the tow truck. The amazing part was the clearance of the wheels on the flat bed truck – about 8 inches TOTAL! Eeks!
My heart was pounding as I watched and took deep breaths. I also took a ton of photos. I even placed my cell phone next to one of the tires to add scale of the size of the tire compared to the space to the edge of the bed.
We are parked in the gravel parking lot of the RV repair place with a hook up to power so we’re operational.
By 7:00pm, Rick was exhausted and fell asleep in the chair. He did a great job of taking care of things!
Our timing? If all goes better than planned, we’ll be off today (Tuesday) — more like Wednesday afternoon or Thursday morning.
