Woke up at 7:30 this morning and got out of bed at 8 o'clock. Walked around the roads seeing how to get out of this rough area I'm in. The roads have large potholes that White Lion doesn't like. Someone told me this area is known as Snyder Hill BLM Land.
When we got back, I called lots of RV repair places in town hoping to find someone to fix my leak problem, but everyone is booked for weeks from now, so had to go with the do-it-yourself plan.
Finally fixed my coffee and crackers this morning. As I was walking around I ran into Neal, owner of Yuma's friend. He has the same solar set-up I have and he says he always uses his coffeemaker on solar power, so I tried it. The battery strength remained 100% even with the draw, so guess I won't be using the generator any longer in the morning.Neal and his wife Jen work on the road. Their dog, Mattie I believe, is only a year old and is already bigger than Yuma. They love playing and running around together.
After a shortened breakfast, Yuma and I made a run back into town to the Walmart. I forgot whipping topping which is a must and I wanted to return the epoxy glue I bought yesterday. Nancy, Kissack Adventures texted me to let me know they had Flex Seal at ACE Hardware, so I stopped by there and bought some.
Slapped that stuff on the black tank valve and let it set for the rest of the day. Yuma is giving me moral support😊
I went over to Neal's place and he was busy at work on his computer and his wife of four months was on the roof of their MH putting on a coat of rubber while getting a tan. It is in the 80s and quite warm up there. They've completely redone their 1993 MH over the years.
I asked him if he would stop by and help me get the White Lion turned around to make it easier to get out of here in the morning. These roads are in terrible condition so going back the way I came is my best option and it is full of potholes.
Put my Dish out a 5:15 and I could not believe it worked first time around😀 Will wonders never cease! Watching Gold Rush as the sun is setting.
I said I would only be here one day, but I just didn't feel like rushing everything I had to do today. Getting too old to rush around anymore. I get flustered easily.
Tomorrow is another move day but not very far. Thanks for stopping by.
I hope your leak repair does the trick. That's a terrible problem to have. You meet some really nice and interesting people on your travels. Have a good trip to the grassands.ReplyDelete
Thanks Dolly. Boondocks are a friendly group. I like that. Sure hope the sealant does the trick.Delete
Fingers crossed your repair job does the trick. Enjoyed all your pictures from Ajo. We are planning on heading there, Ajo, on Monday and hoping there are some spaces open. Sometimes it is nice to not rush and just enjoy the day. Take care and safe travels tomorrow.ReplyDelete
Thanks Deb. The crowd was not as great when I left so hoping you find a great site on Monday. Have a safe journey.Delete
It's always better to take your time, after all, that's why we retired, right? I've only seen that area on a map and it doesn't look like they keep it up at all. I'm glad the fix worked. Hopefully it hangs in there until you can get it replaced. I'll be seeing you soon I hope with my new rig.ReplyDelete
You're right Nancy. This area is being overused unfortunately because of the times. Hope my fix does the job till I get home. Can't wait to see the new rig 😀Delete
Hope the Flex Seal works for you until you can get a proper fix. I had thought about it ,but wasn't sure, so I didn't mention it. Yes best to take your time and ask for help in turning around. Love the sunset pictures, take care Doug.ReplyDelete
Thanks Bill. Glad Yuma helped me to meet Neal. Young man willing to help. I hope the sealant works till I get home so I can do the job right.Delete
Sounds like a lovely warm day. I hope as well that the seal works.ReplyDelete
Nice to have fellow rv'ers around to help get out of tough spots, no matter what they are.
No need to rush at anything, in my mind, retirement grants us much leeway if we just learn to accept a slower pace. :)
Thanks for the boost Patsy. It was nice to have someone watch my rear as I made the slow back and forth turnaround. As for rushing my mind says go, go go but my body says go slow, go slow 😁 I believe soon the two will get together.Delete
Hope the Flex Seal gets you home leak free. I have seen 'Black Tank' sealer and repair kits, you'll have time at home to investigate a permanent solution.ReplyDelete
Continued safe travels
You're right Jeff. I'll be home at the end of the month and then I have plenty of time for permanent fix.Delete
According to the Commercials you can apply the Flex Seal even during storms so you should be good.ReplyDelete
Always a problem turning around when you are by yourself.
Didn't think you were at Snyder Hill. We've stayed overnight twice on the south side not far from the road.
Be Safe and Enjoy your new spot.
It's about time.
That's good to know about the Flex Seal. Maybe it'll last. Snyder Hill is fine for a one night stand to be near Tucson.Delete
