Just To Check In . . .

Just a quick update for now, with more details to follow tonight.

Jan and I are both in Katy TX at Brandi’s, as is Miss Karma.

As I mentioned in the last blog, Jan and I met Brandi and Lowell in Lake Charles on Sunday afternoon so I could send Jan back with them while I worked on the problem.

So yesterday morning I was on the phone early with Cummins, Spartan, and finally Good Sam ERS. A number of you recommended Billy Thibodeaux’s Premiere RV in Scott LA. But it was 125 miles from Covington, and I figured Good Sam might balk at a tow that far.

But they said they would tow that far if needed, but they actually came up with a place that looks good, and it’s much closer. Big Wheel Diesel & Wrecker in Hammond, only about 25 miles away.

Even better they’re both a Cummins and a Spartan authorized repair service. And they were also the company was towing us. All in one neat package.

And they were fast. About 10 minutes after I gave GS ERS the go-ahead I got a call from Pete, the wrecker driver, telling me he’d be there in about 20 minutes.

And after that, it all went down hill. I’ll let Nick Russell tell you about how that went with his blog post, Greg Wins, and I will flesh it out more tonight.

But our rig was finally parked at Big Wheel by about 5:15 and I was on the way making the 6 hour drive back to Katy by 5:45, getting to Brandi’s about 11:35pm.

That’s it for now. More tonight.

Thought for the Day: 

Now that cellphones are becoming more and more waterproof, pretty soon it will be okay to push people into pools again.
