This week we have put a lot of miles on our “toad” running back in forth to Coeur d’Alene. We are trying to get ourselves ready for our trip south and that includes getting the toad taken care of. The other day when we started it up and the “check engine” light glared at us…OK, now what??? The mechanic in CDA convinced us that it was time for our 60,000 mile check up and it would only cost us $400. What a bargain… We also had our air-conditioner re-done seeing as how it still wasn’t cooling from the last time we were there. Well now that we’ve paid our bill, test drove the car, and switched on the air conditioner, I hope that we’ve seen the last of a mechanic for a while. Our last weekend here at Farragut is upon us. Again we are just about filled up. I think we have 35 campers with us. This morning about 4am we were all awakened by a thunderstorm that came passing by our way…WHISH-BANG-BOOM…lasting but a few minutes, it was noisy and left a lot of wet behind. With the coach sitting here for the last month and a certain amount of Pine needles and dust gathering on her top, I decided today was a perfect day to put a little soap and water to her and get her all ready for the road. It turned out to be a good Spring Cleaning Day.
