On the Road Again

Just a short note to let you all know that we are back on the road for the summer. Well we actually are not on the road now; we are in an RV repair garage in Greensburg, PA. Saturday we noticed a puddle under the motorhome while we were parked in Mike’s brother’s driveway. We had a problem last year with a water leak that formed a puddle under the coach and of course everyone thought it was a leaking sewer. Mike fixed that to eliminate that misconception. This year the puddle under the coach was sewage, much to the distain of his family and their neighbors. We had to run out to a Flying J truck stop to dump our tanks as there are no campgrounds nearby. That left us without the use of the plumbing in the coach for the weekend. We showed up at the repair facility this morning (Monday) at 7:00 AM. They got us in right away and tore into the project. It turned out to be a leaking valve that is hidden in the bowels of the coach. They have most of the parts and hope to re-use the ones they don’t, so hopefully we will be back on the road later today. So much for a trouble free summer.

We have the boat scheduled to be launched on Friday and need to be in Mackinaw City on Thursday. We can hardly wait to see what challenges await us there.

Our home phone is not receiving calls, if you want to get a hold of us please call our cell phone or send us an e-mail. We hope to be able to pick up our e-mail at least every few days using hot spots along the way. Our cell phone sits in our coach, we don’t carry it with us, so you will probably have to leave a message.

We hope that you all have had a nice winter and spring. We are looking forward to an interesting summer.

Take care, Love,

Linda, Jake and the Fat Man
