I know you’ve been dying with curiosity to hear where we headed off to after “escaping “ from the Winnebago Factory Service Center.
Utah? (Judy, Sherry and Gail’s guess). At least 350 miles? (Nan’s guess).
Well, the truth of the matter is neither (although Utah is a very attractive idea).
Nope, we drove right across the street for a two night stay at the Winnebago Visitor Center. Let me ‘splain.
All this week, while the Journey was being worked on, I was fighting a nasty cold. At the end of each work day when the tech brought back the Journey, I quickly crashed on the couch, trying to get as much rest as possible before rising early the next morning to put the Journey back in the shop.
Being the wonderful, caring husband that I am, I have now shared the cold with Marti. So we decided to take advantage of Winnebago’s offer of two free nights to try and recuperate and kick these colds. I couldn’t see myself doing some PDD driving while hacking up a lung and having my nose run all over the steering wheel. Yep, we’re full of cold medicine, mega doses of vitamin C and Echinacea, while trying to get rested up.
Hopefully by Sunday, I can, at least, get behind the wheel and start working our way to Ohio, where we’ll visit Marti’s sister for most of a week before heading to South Carolina by 1 June. Life on the road has the same “fun” as living in a house. Sick days no matter where you are.
Before we left the service center, I once again decided to visit their parts area.
The Journey’s water pump has been making some different, unusual noises recently. So, before I get all soaped up in the shower and the water pump craps out, I decided to buy a spare.
I think I’ll change out the old one when we get to Ohio. Of course, now that I have a new one on hand, the old pump will probably never kick the bucket…
Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.
