Well after numerous personal issues (family losses, sick dogs and health problems) we were finally able to take our big 3 week motorhome vacation up to UT, CO, SD,MT,WY and ID. The food,dogs,clothes,people and tow car are all in the motorhome so off we go.
We are going up to open our mountain home first. 2 hours into the trip up the mountain we start to lose power and the motorhomes dies. My husband is hugging the side of the road and gets it started again. 1 mile down the road it happens again. After 8 more times of this happening he is able to find a vacant ranger station to pull into. We go to use the cell phone to call road side service and guess what no cell service. Unhook the tow car and down the road he goes to find cell service.. Comes back about 1 hour later and it is determined the motorhome has to be towed back down to the valley. After 2 hours of waiting still no tow truck driver, so off hubby goes to call again. When he comes back he says that they sent the tow truck driver to the wrong location soooo it will be another 3 hours until he gets there. The dogs did great – they loved we took them to explore the forest. For those that do not know we bought this motorhome brand new a year ago and this is the 3rd time it has left us stranded. We now are jamming 3 adults, 4 dogs, food, clothing into a Jeep for a ride down the mountain.
Our vacation we decide to just go up and stay at our home in the mountains. This is good because when we left the valley it was 110 and tooo hot for me. 2 days later a cold front comes through and it is snowing where we are at. What have I packed for clothes shorts, shorts and more shorts. It was neat to look out and see snow and the dogs had a blast. We even had a family of deer on the property. For us city folks that is a big deal. The snow only lasted a day. It was nice to get away from all that was going on.
We have another trip planned in the motorhome (even though I said I would never get in it again) in a week to go to a wedding in IL. So cross your fingers for us we make it there and back.
