Jan 9, 2016 - Day 62 - in Rice Creek RV Park in Riverview, Florida

We had a lazy morning, then Garry started a new project; repairing tears in the slide cover. He discovered that the bedroom slide cover is losing its stitching to attach it to the bus. Probably needs to be replaced so we will check out places at the RV Show next week. We measured all the slide covers then got ready to visit the pool for a couple of hours before supper. We walked into the pool as it started to rain. Garry got his hot tub time in before the thunder started so he decided that it would be safer not in water. We made it back to...

Jan 8, 2016 - Day 61 - to Riverview to Rice Creek RV Park

We moved over to Rice Creek RV Park and were set up for the day before 11;00 AM.

He did discover a leak in the sink sewer drain, so took it out...

We never anticipated the delay at the mechanic but a throttle control seal replacement to fix a fuel leak and the replacement of the steering gear box took longer than expected. Then a rain delay then another huge problem with the electric connection between the...

Nov 15, 2010 - Welcome Home

WHOOPIE .... WE MADE IT! We pulled into our winter home around Noon today, 80+ degrees. After winding through the park, we arrived at out home for the next five months = #1541. Sitting in the middle of the space was a small palm tree with a welcome home balloon attached and a pink flamingo! I knew my sister had been here and she confirmed that when I talked with her on the phone and she said, "Well, every snowbird has to have their own palm tree and flamingo." We have a few minor issues to deal with in the RV - like a leak in the toilet,...
