Kind of a toss and turn night. We were up at 7 taking our last walk around here. It is already quite warm and will hit 95 by afternoon. Not quite ready for this heat.
We had a quick breakfast and Nick and I made two quick runs to the Pilot station in Eloy to dump the portable tank. We were at 100% capacity and didn't want it towed completely full.
Got a call around 9 o'clock from Knight Towing and the lady said she quoted me the wrong tow price. I said "That's great! How much lower is it?" I knew that it wouldn't be lower, but I had to get a snip in. Of course it was $500 higher. Instead of $850 it is $1350😨.
The tow truck driver showed up at 1 o'clock for the noon appointment. He had a trainee with him and it took over an hour to get the White Lion on it's way.
Goodbye Midway Diesel and on to the yard of Middle Class American. Kay uses that handle in her blog comments. We left separately from the tow truck and arrived at Kay's driveway at 3 o'clock. I had forgotten to take Tylenol this morning, so I was beginning to ache all over.
While waiting for the tow truck, we sat outside with Stanley and Lisa. Kay was on an errand and would be home later. The tow truck finally showed up and unhooked. It was 5 o'clock before they left. Very long day just getting the WL towed. Kay arrived home just after they left.
While waiting for the guys to unhook the WL, I got a call from U-Haul. Fear grabbed me thinking they were going to tell me no hitch for a week or so. Not that. The young man said several employees were not going to show tomorrow and was hoping I could just drop the Jeep off and leave it all day.
I appreciated the heads up, but I told him I was coming from Phoenix to Tucson and would be there waiting for them to finish it. May be a long day of waiting tomorrow, but I'm used to waiting.😁 He did say he would hurry as much as possible after I told him my situation.
We talked briefly with Kay and then it was time for dinner and Gold Rush. Very warm evening. I am so thankful for all that Kay has done to help me not make a hasty decision. I'm starting to realize all the options I have to keep the White Lion alive and not be sold off in parts.😪
Got to get to bed early tonight. I have a two hour drive to Tucson in the morning for a 7 am appointment.
Thanks for stopping by.
All the best for tomorrow, drive safe.ReplyDelete
Thanks Bill. I'm at Uhaul now waiting patiently. All going well.Delete
It is so good of Kay to give the motor a pace to stay. It's good you don't have to rush your decision. Good luck with you're trip to get a trailer. Hopefully, you'll have everything ready to go for a Monday morning departure.ReplyDelete
Thank you Dolly. Sweet of Kay. I'm at Uhaul now. Hoping all goes well.Delete
When was the last time you were on the road at 5 am? Let Nick drive :)ReplyDelete
What a great friend Kay is to allow the parking of the WL while you figure out the next steps that can be done.
Thanks for the concern Jeff but I can still drive in the dark.😀 Kay sure has been a help during this stressful time.Delete
I'm glad you are giving it a second chance. Very nice of Kay to help you out. Yeah I'm not in to that waiting thing as you know, but I'm glad you found a hitch and trailer. Sending you prayers and good juju!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Nancy. Kay has really helped to give me options. Patience has been a virtue this past month.Delete
Always nice when Friends can help one another. This will give you time to find someone more knowledgeable about your type of engine. Good luck with the Hitch and Trailer.ReplyDelete
Safe Travels and Enjoy the adventure.
It's about time.
Thank you Rick. They're working on the hitch now.Delete
