Explosion

Light at the end of the Tunnel

This photo is the side of our RV that was badly damaged in the explosion. Nelson’s RV did a great job repairing it. We only had one minor issue after the RV was returned to us and Nelson’s sent a repairman to us to fix it. As of right now, it appears that our RV has been restored to it’s pre-explosion condition.

Life at the Residence Inn

Pasted Graphic
We checked into the Residence Inn on Tuesday. We will be here for an extended period of time while the RV is being repaired. The longest I have ever stayed in a hotel is ten days on ski vacations in Austria and Park City. The dogs have not stayed in a hotel for more than two nights.

The Search for Sanity

IMG_0168
have one goal today - to find at least a few hours of sanity and reason and escape from the horrors of the last few days. We moved out of the hotel and back into the RV yesterday. I spent the day cleaning, straightening, etc. I also reinsulated our water source. The heat from the fire had melted the insulation we had put on the pump and hose. I also hooked up the park’s cable tv since we no longer have an antenna (it was torn off the top of the RV). I am so very happy to be back home even though the exterior of the RV looks like we are in the middle of some kind of disaster. I cannot clean the outside of the RV because a “body man” is coming by to look at it on Monday. Inside the RV is quite pleasant. Read More...

The Morning After

I was glad when it was finally close enough to a reasonable hour to get out of bed. I was not sleeping anyway. The dogs and I left the room to go for a walk around 5:30 AM. It was cold and still raining, but we still went for a fairly long walk.
