Iron Mountain Weekend.
I'm back at Iron Mountain. Came back yesterday evening when the motorhome was finished with her newly rebuilt transmission. But there's a problem. Ellie does not want to climb hills. She wants to bear down while climbing & won't relax into gear, so I have to let up on the gas, then push it again. She's eating gas like it was candy! So on Monday, we go back to the mechanics & we either will go over to the transmssion shop together or he'll come to us.
When I got here & parked into my campsite, I noticed that the dog house (console) was EXTREMELY hot. So I want to see if something went wrong or needs to be done that still needs attention. If I can't make it 12 miles without an issue, I'm pretty sure that I can't make it 400 miles.
At least I have food, the animals have food. We have power & water. We have a lake to view & walking to do when we feel like it. Rates are good too at $12 per night. And we have a/c!! I was told it was supposed to get to 105 today & 107 tomorrow. Is this normal for this part of country this time of year or is this global warming?
I think it's a little cooler in Texas. The August heat will be waiting for me though – soon!
Internet isn't strong up here, so I'll go now. Hope everyone is doing well!
