On Sunday our brother from Sudbury also joined us and we had a very informal celebration of our sister’s 50th birthday. We mcgyvered a cake out of 4 packs of goldfish pretzels wrapped in white tissue which was held together with blue electrical tape. Prybar even cleverly made a bow out of the blue tape – very creative. A nice lunch and an even nicer visit and then we started packing for the Texas tour. It’s amazing how much crap accumulates when you’ve been camping for 3 months. Oh well.
Of course, I couldn’t go 100 miles without something going wrong with the Beast and, sure enough, it did. A loud bang and voila…. A spring from one of the rear hydraulic jacks just blew apart. Naturally, no one could fix it. Sigh….
