Quoted From A Fellow Traveler:

Life is short, Break the rules, Forgive quickly, Kiss slowly, Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably, And never regret anything that made you smile. Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we're here we should dance.

Windshield Fixed

We had a small chip in the upper left corner of the windshield. A passing truck kicked up a stone about a month ago and caught us.
I called our insurance company and they had someone come out to fix the chip right here in our yard.
He drilled a small hole at the five ends of the star. This will stop the cracks from growing, he then sealed the holes with a liquid plastic and cured it with an ultraviolet light.
The whole process took no more than fifteen minutes. You can still see the area but the process doesn't eliminate the crack, it stops it from spreading.

We are in the process of removing anything that can freeze from the coach. This is a real bummer because we will probably only have a few weeks of freezing before we head for warmer climates. I could keep the heat on but I guess it's a toss-up.

Running the heat sounds easier, but then I am a bit lazy. We had the poor judgment to be in ND now and had snow last night and had to move late last night to get out from under trees that the campground was concerned about falling on the coaches.

So we are giving up our remaining ND plans and heading the heck south!

Please drive safe in that snow, it's not fun driving in that stuff with a coach.

Back in 2006, before Wendy and I moved to Peru, we traveled the USA (17,300 miles) in my old Toyota Landcruiser. In Boston, someone broke into our car and we had to have a window replaced. As the car was as pretty old, the insurance company had to find a source for the specific piece of glass. Finally, we had our new window installed in Maryland. Good travels, Bill
