Steve was busy dumping our holding tanks while Merikay and Craig got settled in their campsite. They have a 2007 Alfa See Ya motorhome and pull a Jeep. Their blog is: http://merika-merika.blogspot.com/ We pulled our rig into the site next to them and got all set up.
We are pretty glad we did-- more about that later!
Steve also noticed a big oily spot under our rig just after we leveled off in our campsite. Rut Roh! Breakdown again! Brake fluid line seems to have broken leading up to a front wheel. Good thing we are near a large enough town to get parts. Steve blamed me because I was driving the motorhome up on blocks to level it and he said I stomped on the brake pedal too hard! Well, better that it breaks here in a park rather than in the middle of some mountain descent, right????
We sat out in our lawn chairs in T shirts and capris and relaxed and enjoyed the lovely warm weather. (remember that part!)
Merikay and Craig said they had some good Wisconsin Bratwurst to treat us for dinner, and we brought over some tater salad and pasta salad. It was good to sit and compare stories and travels and RV stuff since we saw them last summer.
We did the obligatory photos across the table of each other....
and they took one of us.... getting pretty shined up here I think?
OH we did follow up the meal with a wonderful Key Lime Pie!
About 2 am I heard this familiar sound on the roof... hmmm it wasn't rain. Nope. It was sleeting ice particles pinging down. Then it was silent. You KNOW what that means??? Yup, the temps dropped and the rain changed over to SNOW! The weathermen never mentioned this, it was only supposed to drop down to 40 overnight. When I looked at 7 am it was 24 degrees!
This is what we woke up to:
Remember those lawn chairs??? My lawn chairs have NEVER had snow on them! We always put them away before rain or bad weather. Guess it might have had something to do with those four bottles of wine, eh?
I made up a breakfast bake pan to bring over for our morning gab session. Here is the recipe.... (click on photo to enlarge if you need to)
We hung out till about noon in their rig, waiting for the snow to melt. The weathermen promised 55 today, but it never got that high. Even now at 4 pm, it's only 40 degrees and the snow is starting to finally melt.
I whipped up a pan of chicken alfredo lasagna and another pan of regular italian lasagna for dinner tonight and will be popping them in the oven as soon as I am done typing this.
It was a good choice to move up to the campground after all. Kinda nice to be up on the electric sites for these cold brrrrr days!
