Going with the flow

Stix n Brix

It was a very nice visit with both families but we sure could tell that the "great northern migration" of snow birds was in full flight.  We were on I95 and the traffic was terrible.  I made the comment that I enjoy posting on the blog when we camp because I usually have something to write about whereas the time between trips can be a bit dull.  Well that must have been an omen, because late last night, Gin heard water running under the house as we were getting ready for bed.  We grabbed a flashlight and went in the crawlspace to take a look.  A pressure tank had rusted through and was spraying water all over the place.  Luckily, it looked like it had just happened so we turned off the water to the house.  Timing is everything.  So Easter Sunday we went to Lowes and Gin installed a new tank.  All is well.  I'm so thankful that she knows how to do so many things.

That changed our plans for the day.  We put some food in the MH in preparation for our trip Wednesday to SC.  The pollen is just so thick right now that we want to wait to wash her as late as possible.  We did try a different setup for the hitch but that didn't look like it would work too well.  I needed to move the MH to try to hook up the Suki and that's when we found out that the jack under the driver's seat is not working.  It has always been a lazy jack but we now have to raise it manually.  We did this 3 or 4 times and it still didn't improve.  We'll carry our poles and blocks with us and take her to the dealer when we get back.  Hopefully it won't take long to fix it and it won't cost too much.

I've got a couple of work days ahead of me and I know Gin will be busy getting the last minute things ready.  We have already learned to take things as they come and roll with it.  Life is too short to worry about things too much.

Always something! But you seem to be developing a good attitude.

Go with the flow!
