We finally got moved back to MD from PA, we ended up staying longer than anticipated due to needed maintenance and repairs on the 5th wheel. Stu decided to do some PM work and found a bad bearing. Some of you may remember our TX fiasco when another bearing went out, we sure didn't want that to happen again!
He also took time to completely wash the Freightliner and the 5th wheel...no wax but they look much better (at least until the next heavy rain).
Last but not least was heating the steel bumper and pulling/pounding it back into position. It's been that way for over two years, glad to get it done. Looks better and will look MUCH better once he gets it painted.
Sadie enjoyed her play time with her new friends but she was also happy to get back to MD to play with her sister after helping Stu with his repairs.
We've been busy with family meetings, doctor/dental appointments and taking motorcycles in for service. I left my bike at the local HD dealer before we evacuated to PA...after almost three weeks, they said it was done. We went to pick it up when Stu took his in for his 30k service...found out they only did the things I have to pay for...none of the warranty items were addressed!!
Next was the news that Stu's bike had metal in the transmission fluid...so they are pulling it completely apart and rebuilding it. Glad we have an extended warranty! We are hoping to have the bikes back tomorrow or Saturday...time will tell.
Stu learned that he will be getting both his knee replacements done next spring...that means no trip to Arizona this winter. We'll be staying in the Florida again. Sort of good news/bad news scenario. He'll be glad to get his knees fixed but we will miss all our friends in Arizona as well as missing the Gypsy Journal Rally there (we also had to miss the upcoming Ohio one...sigh), but this will allow us to go on a 7 day western Caribbean cruise with some of our friends this February.
Not much else is new...definitely nothing else exciting. We spent one day babysitting Stu's grandgirls...had a blast! All the doctor appointments have gone well as have the dental, vision, etc. That's always a good thing...especially since I have had too many friends die in the last six months. Once again we are reminded that life is too short...do what you love and love what you do!
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
