Last Saturday we pulled into Ehrenberg, Arizona for a weeks stay. A weeks stay in Ehrenberg???, yep, I’m not really sure why, but here we are. The town made famous by the RV community, Quartzsite is just over 20 miles away, and then Blythe, California is across the river from us. The river, which runs directly behind our coach, is the Colorado River and then, other than that, there just isn’t much except the fine weather. When I hooked up the water filter last Saturday, I found that one of the hose attachments was cracked and leaked like crazy. Then, I found a screw in one of the tires on the Tracker (toad). Soooo, yesterday we traveled into Quartzsite to see what we could find to fill our needs. Luckily we found a good deal on a water treatment system, but as far as the tire, it was fixed ok, but as we got onto the freeway I found that the balance of that fixed tire was way out. Now we will have to make a return trip just to get the tire balanced…damn.
Today we made the decision to register for the caravan trip leaving from Texas through 7 countries, and onto and through the Panama Canal and back. We will be leaving the 7th of January 2008 for 78 days…anyone want to join us??? Fact is, I met a couple today from Twisp (Chuck "The Cougar Research Guy" and Kathy Smith) and I’m working on them right now. Well, we finally got our appointment in Yuma to get some warrentee work done. Keep your fingers crossed that it wont take too long and that this will take care of our water leaking slide.
