Back to the house we went for a re-do. Only THIS time, her leg was very red, swollen and hot to the touch. Not good my little friend! You can tell from the picture where we ended up. I made an emergency call to the Vet's office and got in immediately. I figured my trip was going to be postponed a day or two.
Back home a few bucks lighter in the wallet, I drug them kicking and screaming to the rig. I again went through everything on my list to be sure I didn't forget something and we were off. Lucky for me, the rain had quit just in time. The four hour drive to Tehachapi Mountain RV Park was eventless, if you don't count that big truck and trailer slamming on his brakes in front of me for no reason.
I'm not sure if he missed his offramp or was just trying to piss off the guy in the car behind him, but it caused me to hit MY brakes a little hard, sliding everything in the rig forward two feet. When Nick Russell, world renown author and RV Pro tells you to tie things down, believe me, you should do it. Thankfully, nothing hit the floor, but my bungee cords were stretched to the maximum!!
There were some dark skies when I arrived at the glider airport, but they just provided cover from the sun. It was cool and beautiful ... but where did all these windmills come from?
I don't remember them being here last time I traveled through. I probably just wasn't paying attention. Down to the 40's last night, I was glad I set my heater to come on when necessary.
Up early this morning, I'll be off again headed for 95 degree Quartzsite and a 50 amp service. I'm pretty sure there won't be cloud cover to keep us cool.
Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes ... and Jessie thanks you for your good thoughts. They made her feel much better!!
