Truck is Fixed!!!!

Yippeeeeee!!!! Ocean Crest Motors in Warrenton, Oregon, called us about 3:30 yesterday to tell us our truck was fixed. Oh, what a relief.  We quickly got ready and were on the road in 10 minutes.  It’s only 60 miles north from Tillamook, but it took us a little over 1 1/2 hours to get there because of all the twists and turns in the road.  In many areas you have to reduce your speed to 25 MPH to go around the many corners.

We arrived at 5:15, just before they closed.  Oh, it was so nice to start up the truck and hear it purrrrr.  There wasn’t any nasty smoke puffing out of the tailpipe either Smile   Heck, they even washed the truck for us which was very nice of them.

I headed back in the borrowed Mustang and soon it got dark and a bit scary for me.  I haven’t driven in the dark for over five years! Then add to that there wasn’t any moon shining and there aren’t any street lights outside of the little towns.  So all those winding roads and up and down hills in complete darkness….yes, it was scary!  I was so glad for the line on the outside edge of the road to guide me, because oncoming traffic headlights were blinding!!!

Oh, well, I stopped at Fred Meyer’s to fill up the Mustang and got home about 7 p.m.  Jim stopped and got us a pizza for dinner, but first thing we did was pour ourselves a drink….it had been a hectic day.

So this morning we will move to Lincoln City and rejoin Jim and Linda Mossman.  It’s been two weeks since we’ve been together and we sure miss them a lot.  We’ll stay there a couple of days and then move to Florence for a bit.  After that it’s see the redwoods and travel to Sacramento to visit friends who are members of our Escapee RV Club family.  After that ??????????????

Well, hopefully, that is the end of the truck problems…so far, so good.  Thanks to all our friends who have expressed their concern through facebook and emails.  It has all been much appreciated.

Remember, you are loved.
