We had a great visit and took a trip to the Giant City Lodge for an all-you-can-eat chicken dinner. The lodge was built by the CCC during the 1930's. It is an amazing building that has withstood the test of time. To think this stonework was done without modern tools by hardworking young men.
There is a monument to those hardworking young men whose sweat and hard labor has given us so many wonderful parks and places for us to enjoy today.
After our two day stay, we hit the road, traveling just a short 175 miles to see our four granddaughters that live in Missouri. The trip went well, but we're still plagued with that alarm whistle that goes off whenever it wants to, caused by that defective wiring harness. Thank goodness it is intermittent, and we have a radio that we can turn up to help drown out the noise. We won't be able to get to the Freightliner Service Center in Gaffney, SC until mid September to get it repaired so I'm going to see if I can get the new wiring harness sent to me and install it myself. It's not a big job and the peace and quiet will be worth it.
We have adjusted our travels, our plans to go to the Winnebago Factory Service Center fell through, the earliest appointment we could get was for mid August, when we have to be in New Jersey. I have to figure out if I can do the work myself on our large slide, the plastic slide guides are cracking and need replacement. I have to research if there is a way I can do this myself without heavy lifting equipment. Or I can put it off until a later date, but the cracks are worrying me.
However, it's not all bad. We are looking forward to a great month with the girls. It's worth it all.
Me and 1 year old Charlie (Charlotte), my new BFF.
