Last Minute Preparations
We're getting there. Only 2 1/2 weeks until we take off. We've fixed our heater so our daughter and her family that will be living in our house will be safe. It had a not-so-small gas leak. It took 2 weeks to fix. Naturally it was in a cold snap (yes, we have those here in S. CA). The day after it was fixed, it was almost 80. That's the way life is sometimes.
Dan is off at Camping World getting the RV generator fixed. We've had our share of difficulties, but much better to have them here rather than in the middle of nowhere while on the road. The generator should be the last item to repair.
A son-in-law will be setting up the sattelite for our TV tomorrow. Then all we'll have left is for one of our children to show us how to use the web cam, and the last minute shopping. How spoiled we are, TV, microwave, computer, cell phones, GPS, and more. When we tented it across the country with 7 of our 8 children, we didn't have any of those. None of them had been invented except TV, and they only had antennas for RVs. It's different when you have a family getting away for a few weeks. We're going to be gone 9 months, including during the Olympics.
