Well, here we sit. Got all backed in and started to level and unhitch and the front landing gear just sits there and clicks. Got enough boards under them to get off the hitch - but are not quite level. Called our friend Rocky, thank goodness he is at Elkhart Campgound this summer, and he will come fix it.
Moved the dinette table to the desk configuration and it is working very well as a desk. It also gives me the advantage of being able to look out of the big side windows instead of the little one on the end of the slide. I now have a great view of the trotter's race track and can watch them exercise the horses.
Monday we started selling ads for the Escapade Programs Booklet. We always do the campgrounds first so we can give people some recommendations. Great travels thru the countryside. You can tell the Amish farmhouses -- no electric or telephone lines, huge gardens, and long lines of clean clothes drying in the breeze. Also the "home pasture" with some really great looking carriage horses is a giveaway, too.
I probably won't be adding too much to this journal this summer. First of all - we will be very busy and second - it will be about the same stuff each day - went out to call on advertisers, sold ads, picked up door prizes - or got turned down, will never go there again.
We will be back on the road the middle of September. Will post some pictures here and there during the summer.
Well, my great view out of the side window is gone!! - They moved the office trailer in and the entrance porches are about 3 foot from my slide. No Biggie - I can now see when people go to work.
Rocky came over and fixed the landing gear - he looked at it and it starting working correctly!! Man that is some repair man!!! We hooked up and moved the RV back and forth about 6 inches. We had put too many blocks under the curb side and the shower wouldn't drain. Sometimes that happens and we usually live with it as we won't be here that long - this time we decided to fix it as we will be here all summer.
The rest of the Advanced Staff has arrived. It was soooo good to see them. Ron and I went out for 2 ads late in the afternoon (managers not in till after 4). As we went back to leave first place the truck wouldn't start - lights worked fine - just no starter. Called Dodge at 3 minutes to 5 and made arrangements for delivery - called Road Service and had it towed - then called Bill to come pick us up.
On Friday - calls to Dodge - Not the starter - something electrical - would be a miracle if done before Monday. Call a hour later - Miracle accomplished, you have 1/2 hour to get here to pick it up. Loose wire & new starter later (guess they couldn't tell with wire loose) and we are good to go!
