For those of you interested Only in TRAVEL, I (Jack) wrote the blog between March 2010 and October 2010 during our travels west. We saw the most beautiful places and had the best time in our big truck and little trailer. See Blog Archive below.

Pat Myself on the Back!

Every time I thought the refrigerator was working, it wasn't. I was resigned to an uphill battle with Forrest River to get it fixed or replaced under warrantee.

I figured it out. I took the back of the refrigerator door off (on the outside) and there it was--a plug sitting there waiting to be plugged in somewhere. I found the outlet. If any of you techies know anything, will you let me know if that could have been my problem all along. The check gas light is finally off for good (I hope). I expect this to be the last word about the refrigerator.  If it isn't, when or if I pass a deep canyon...

Yesterday was a lay around and do nothing day. I ran out just once to get a few things from WalMart. I have been sneezing like crazy--I never sneeze. It dawned on me that they are harvesting, now, and I've been driving by all the farms.

I fell asleep early, but woke up at 1:30 a.m. and wasn't able to go back to sleep. I wasn't feeling well in my sleep and I "dreamed" that someone needed thirty six cupcakes set up at a stand at a baseball game, then changed the number to 45 and didn't tell me where to get the table. I ran around all night looking for it, then dropped the cupcakes. I was furious because I kept telling them (whoever them was) that I was sick and wanted to sleep." I woke up mad because the dream was so real.

There really aren't any pictures to take here, but it's not bad considering I have all hook ups, a place to eat (and gamble if I want) and swim after 8 p.m. for $15. per night.


  1. Sometimes the smartest people overlook the simplest things. You should be proud of yourself.
    That problem sleeping sounds all too familiar.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

    1. Whoever built this thing, Rick wasn't very smart.

    2. Unfortunately or fortunately blogger cuts my iPhone comments short.

    3. Sure hope what ever bug this is goes away quickly!

  2. Jim says that was probably the issue. Way to go girl. I woke up angry this morning also - but of course I can't remember what the dream was. I hate when that happens. Went to the Bear Paw Battlefield today but it was so blasted cold. 44 degrees with the wind blowing. We didn't last very long.

  3. Oh, you have no idea how much it means that Jim thinks it is the problem. I'm laid up not feeling well, at all. Hope they let me stay here--they are pretty explicit about how they want you to gamble and they reserve the right to oust you when they want. There are sites left in the park so hopefully I'm safe. Terrible storm here, today. I heard a loud bang and the awning on the next door's RV had been blown loose and they were about to lose it. Fortunately, I carry a lot of bungee cords. I was a little scared, but I would have hated to see them lose it. I got it back in and bungeed the heck out of it. When they came home they were so happy--they were going through the storm and were rushing because they wanted to make sure everything was ok. We were rock in' and roll'in--that's for sure! Tell Jim thanks.

  4. Wow I sure hope that plug was the finally part and the end of the problem. Harvest time can be tough for allergies. Hope you feel better tomorrow and they let you stay another night. Storms can do bad things to awnings


Thank you for visiting. Have a great day.
