HAPPINESS is to have EVERYTHING you NEED,
NOT the NEED to have EVERYTHING.
11.30 Friday- Finally settled in a campground
We’ve been in the area, Wildwood, FL, for a few days, but hanging out at Alliance RV as they remedy the passenger side slide and an oil change. It’s taken three days and we must go back on Monday for them to fix a hole they accidentally drilled into the side of the injured slide.
We are now staying at Three-Flags RV Resort in Wildwood, FL. Alliance is just five miles from here. Needless to say this park feels like home. For six months they let us stay here for a very modest price while I finished chemo and radiation. Wednesday and Thursday nights were spent at a motel called “Sleep Inn.” A little pricier than what we usually opt for but was worth every penny. Just down the street from the Inn was Hungry Howe’s. We’d never eaten there before or any of its franchises but I’m ready to go back. We both decided on the buffet. I was delighted with every item I chose. Salad, spaghetti, 2 slices of pizza, 2 pieces of Bowie bread and corn; awesome! I even went back for seconds on the pizza. That was just about it for something to Wright about. Forgot, I did take some camera pictures.
This contraption would eventually pick up the slide, which weighed in at over 1/2 ton, so the techs could repair the slide skids which were on the bottom of the slide, which is why the slide had to come out. To lighten the weight of the slide furniture components inside had to be dismantled, cloths removed for the closet and draws relocated to other parts of the coach.
This is about what it looked like. Needless to say both Scoots and I were getting a little depressed. Fearing she might go catatonic we both spent a little time talking her through this ordeal. One saving factor was her new portable condo, a gift from Carla’s sister Ozzie.
In the end we all survived the trial, especially the coach. The oil change was on schedule for today, Friday and Monday they plan to finish repairing the hole the placed in the slide.
