The Best Laid Plans

We had planned to be near Santa Fe, New Mexico, today, on our way to Colorado. We had reservations there for the next 5 days. Those have been cancelled because we are still in Winslow, Arizona, and will probably be here at least until Tuesday. When we finally get out to here, we aren't headed to Colorado. We will drive to Rolling Retreats, a Mobile Suites dealer in Elk City, Oklahoma.

Remember the repair we had done last September, installing a new front landing leg on the RV? If not, you can read about it here. Well, we are facing the same thing again, unfortunately. We have a lot of driving to do between Winslow and Elk City, so John has created a way to tie up the leg when we are traveling. Hopefully, I won't have to get out of the truck every few miles to pull it back up. This is what the rope looks like when the leg is extended.

This is a view of how it works, hopefully.

With any luck, we should be in Colorado before the end of the month, but we have been a little short of luck recently.


  1. Oh, no! All that way worrying about the leg. You must be getting pretty frustrated. I would be screaming!

    1. I am screaming--at least in private. I'll may scream at some of the people involved--after they have done their jobs. Don't want to make them irritated enough to not do what is needed. It seems everyone involved--including us--could have done better. But we are really tired of the truck stop parking lot.

  4. Sorry to hear you're still having issues. Hope your trip to OK is less eventful.
