And then the Rains came

Posted by on January 27, 2011

After dropping Erin off at the airport, our plans were to pack up everything for the move down to Lakeland for the plumbing fix. The hardest rain I ever saw hit not only Yellow Jacket but almost the entire state. We did get a bit of a slow down, enabling us to pack the trailer with everything we could fit in it. We then parked it until our return, wondering if the deluge would lift it from the tires and float it down the Suwanee.  The three hour ride to Lakeland had to be done at night with low visibility. Damn, these past two weeks are toughening us to no end. Greg Williams, CEO of Classic Coachworks couldn’t have been more accomodating. He immediately made our issue the priority of the work list. The problem wasn’t faulty craftsmanship, just something that happened. Like I said, luck has not been our companion this January fortnight. We have spent a day and a half here and the problem has been rectified. We just sit and await caulking to harden and then it will be back to the campground. We were able to procure police reports, the robbery incident report at the flea market, scanning and emailing documentation over to our insurance company and hopefully this will end the process on our part. So we made good use of the time spent here waiting. The down time has also enabled grocery shopping, laundry, and campground reviews to be done while work was progressing. We also like to survey surrounding campgrounds in order to give us an idea whether or not to add one to our list of visits. It continues to daunt me when looking at the photos of parks and grounds on the internet and then actually visiting them. Their photographers or photoshop illustrators are to be commended. They make squalor look inviting.

    You never leave a stone unturned or an opportunity missed on your travels, be it business or pleasure. It’s good to know that there is an honest person out there that doesn’t photo shop their opinions of RV parks and places to visit ! I’m sure getting your robbery paperwork completed is a big relief to both of you. And, also getting your plumbing issues resolved. Sorry for your bad weather, hope the sun is shing for you soon! Happy Trails to you both!
