We are not where we said we would be today no wine with dinner. I still have it, the ability to schedule an extra day at a place evenwhen it was not planned. Today was going to be a Harvest Host stop which we were able to cancel no problem. This was a good thing because of the warm temps (my MS is so looking forward to cool weather) we need electric most of the Harvest Hosts don’t offer. The other good thing is by stauing in Pendleton an extra day we put ourselves in places after the heat has moved through.
So today is one of those days. I have taken some time today to add a link page to the blog you can find it under the menu. This will make it easier to find a link without having to search through all the posts. I have also caught up on sleep no getting up early to head down the road.
My last post mentioned pulling into our spot last night to a sea of white, well it was not snow. I do wish it was though. I have a few allergies mainly pollen, some molds nothing a pill can’t control. That’s a mostly true statement, Cottonwood trees are a killer. Maybe I shouldn’t have said I’m doing ok because all this Cottonwood isn’t in bloom. (see what happens). The trees don’t brother me most times but I have to wear a mask so I can breathe when the seed pods are a blowing. I’m hoping the extra day here will get us out of sink with the bloom.
I also have to share what not to do when bringing in your slide. When we were getting ready to pull out yesterday I try and bring in the slide, it stops about halfway in, so I let it back out. Now I try it again same thing happens, back out again this time it’s off kilter damn I think. I’m getting fustrated and then I start to think what am I missing. So usually I have a routine, take care of water then pull in slide. Taking care of water includes cover the sink with the boards that came with the unit, then I would bring in the slide. I keep the boards on the shelf under the tv, when there they overhang into the path of the slide. So upon closer inspection guess what step I missed. The cover for the sink. Needless to say these covers now have a new home so if I miss a step no major damage should occur. I was able then to bring the slide in a little take it back out so it was back in line then pull in the slide. Lesson learned follow your steps, don’t rush, and we will get there when we get there.
So the coming week will see us in Canada and then onto Haines Alaska for a few days of exploring and photos.
