It had to happen sometime....

Yesterday was to be our fourth and last day of driving, we were scheduled to be in Las Cruces for a few nights and then on to our winter home.

But in the world of RVing things happen, so instead of completing our miles yesterday we sat on the side of the road somewhere in west Texas for seven hours waiting on mobile service.

It is lovely to drive and live in a nice coach like this, but the rule is, the more dodads you have the more chances for one of them to break.

We actually kept our cool fairly well, we even laughed as other RVer's passed us on the road as we sat there. We knew exactly what they were saying, the same thing we have always said as we passed others sitting on the side of the road, That Ain't Good!!

Luckily after three technicians failed, one very savvy guy on site and another on the phone with Jay we were fixed up enough to drive.

Today we will be in Las Cruces and hope to arrange for a more permanent fix.


  1. Oh nooooo! Brought back some memories of many years ago...our breakdown almost half way to our destination point stranded us for a day and a half. I think it's every person's nightmare, but when you have a RV or camper attached, in our case a truck camper.....not good at all! Glad you were able to be on your way without too long of a wait (although even being stranded for an hour seems like an eternity, doesn't it?). Travel safely, God Bless.

  2. Oh my! I can relate to you only our repairs were warranty work. We'be been sitting in a hotel room for 6 days now and I'm ready to be back in my home on wheels.
    I'm glad you didn't have to wait too long and that you were able to get it patched up enough to get back on the road.
    Safe travels, K

  3. You're telling me that Jay REALLY kept his cool? That's almost an oxymoron. Let me know when you make it home.
