And we’re off . . .

10 Aug

FMC on Hwy 41

So, we’re heading out today.  Of course there were snafus in getting ready — there always are, aren’t there?  This one involved being unable to get the motorhome to start.  Kind of a deal breaker.  A camping trip should involve an actual TRIP, don’t you think?  Anyway, our friend Scott came to the rescue and it turned out that the chain from the cruise control was wrapped around the throttle and holding it wide open . . . okay.  Didn’t know that sort of thing was possible but it’s better now.  You can see our route here.  Normally I’m an enthusiastic camper but the combination of heat (90+ during the day) and missing the Olympics has rendered me less than enthusiastic.  I know it will be fun.  Now, to go roust the boys so we can get moving.

Oh, Ruby won’t be coming camping this time.  It’s hot and there will be days when we are off all day doing things like boating so she’s spending the week with Greg’s Mom.  She’s already gotten a lizard and my mother-in-law is looking forward to Ruby’s serving notice on the gophers that are ravaging her garden.  It’s a win-win situation.  Besides, my mother-in-law adores Ruby and spoils her rotten!

Have a great week!

    I will comment–and you can read when you get home.
    Hope you had a grand time, no more “motorhome” won’t start deals.
    And hope Ruby Tuesday has many tales to tell us all as well!
