We had a great time with our granddaughters. Seems like kids nowadays are very electronic savvy. Even little Rebekah, at 16 months likes playing with things, like Marti’s iPhone.
“Hmm, what app do I want this time?”
We had a laughing good time last night and we tried and tried to get all three girls to sit still for a picture. This was the best we could get with all the giggling going on.
We left the Pin Oak Creek Campground this morning around 10:30 and did a leisurely 215 mile drive down to the Escapee's Turkey Creek Campground right next to Branson, MO. We decided to take a few days to rest up and see some shows before completing our trip back to South Carolina. Grandparenting is hard work! ;c)
We registered at the office and when we came out, Marti smelled propane. I smelled it too. Marti said maybe we should tell the office there was a propane smell, being as there is a large propane tank next to it.
I went and opened our propane compartment to check our tank. Sure enough it was our tank that was leaking. I quickly turned off the shut off valve. On of the brass fittings had vibrated loose and that was where the propane leaked from.
We went inside the Journey and it reeked of propane. We opened all the windows and put on the exhaust fans to clear the air.
I took out my trusty wrenches and snugged up the brass fitting (the one with the lines on it) and then sprayed some soapy water on it to ensure the leak had stopped.
We did lose a couple of gallons of propane. It was a quick fix and a cheap lesson to check those fittings. Murphy threw a nasty punch but we caught it in time before we had our own TV show: “The Big Bang Journey”! :cD
Now we’re all good and nicely set up to enjoy the next few days.
