Rain & Repairs
TrackTown, USA: Though we only returned
home (via airplane) from Los Angeles Monday, we start a
several-week-long RV adventure today... which means we had a very busy Tuesday
prepping the RV for this trip.
It poured rain today. Black skies and strong winds. Huge puddles had formed at
our RV storage facility. I refused to get out of the car until My Driver repositioned the

And then, of course, Brian is checking on our erratic
entry steps. The steps sometimes extend when we
open the door and sometimes do not. Or... they decide to

I can only imagine it won't be the last.
But the most important task is getting new covers for the slide
room! After six years of wind (Indio!) and moldy rain (Eugene!) the awnings have
turned into stretched-out, hole-ridden, nasty flappers - more appropriate for a
pirate ship forever-lost in the Bermuda Triangle than the elegant Magna Peregrinus.
It's always something.
Brian will take the old awnings to his
awning-guy and they will use the remains as templates to
sew replacements. The new awnings will be installed
Something else new? After six years, we bought a new
duvet cover. On sale, even. Yeah!
Until my next update, I remain, your Eugene correspondent.
