Welcome to Campers4Lifex2 - glad to have ya'll along! They are a full timing couple that moved so much that they got smart & found that the RV lifestyle fit the bill better!
So for an update on my Transmission dilema. I'm still living in the parking lot of the auto place. Hurst on the Hill. The transmission has been taken to a transmission place for a rebuild. I could have opted for a used transmission, but it made more sense to have the old one rebuilt like new rather than take a chance on a used & have it go faulty as well. The cost difference isn't big enough to justify taking the risk, nor are the labor fees.
I got bored this morning & thought, OK, I'll go take a walk...well, it was hot, hot & hot. Plus this is in a really old side of town. So nothing was really special. I'm just not into all the trash along the sides of old worn out roads & such. So I came back. Plus my foot asked me if I was crazy as it's hurting today. There is a railroad museum across the road, maybe I'll do that later. It's just too hot!
Sooo, I'm sitting here, nothing to do. Could clean the RV more, but that's boring too. Watched two movies.
Ah well, guess it could be worse. And I look silly. My a/c runs so cold that I am wearing a hoodie. It's around 100 outside, but cold inside. Not complaining though as I know many RV folks have trouble getting their a/c's to cool their rigs off.
Hopefully by tomorrow, they'll get the transmission back & put back into the motorhome so we can leave. I think I'll go back to the Iron Mountain park & hang around for a couple more days. Do a bit of driving around just to be sure that all is ok with the moho.
In the meantime, I'm just kind of penned up inside of it since it's too hot outside. Wow, this sure makes for a loooooooooooong day!
In the meantime, Ellie wants attention. She MADE me take these corny pix of her! But she must not have liked them because they seemed to have made her sick!?
Wow, it's really quiet here today. Yesterday, this auto shop was full of folks, noise, distractions, etc. Today, I keep peeking out the windows to be sure they didn't close up & leave! But then, that would not happen because David, the owner, would pop around to let me know they were leaving. Although I'm pretty independent & can take care of myself. I'm pretty self contained with all I need in here, he still is worried that I might need something. I went in to visit with his wife & daughter in their office, but they were reading books, so I came back out. I didn't want to become an intruder. Their son & girlfriend really like the dogs though & come running out to see them when I get one out to walk. The dogs kind of like it too! They love the attention.
This is my new chair that I bought when I was in Pa. Then I bought the little stool thing, one of those "as seen on tv" gizmos. I figured it would make a great foot stool for my chair & it does!
~As always, be kind to your pets, clean up after them on your travels & respect your neighbor~
