A Bump in the Road Adventure

Had a sight seeing day with friends Liz and Shorty Guptill today Wed 4/29/15. First stop was a wonderful little village nestled in the heart of San Benito Co Historical Park. Even though the park was closed the day we went, we could still walk around and peek into the buildings. As we strolled up the little road a man came out and introduced himself as Don, the grounds keeper. Don asked us if we would like to see the inside of the wonderful buildings. Of course we said yes... So we had our own private little tour. He and his wife have taken very good care of this neat little town. Don was very knowledgeable of the history of the each of the building there on the grounds. I am sure we heard and saw more than we would have if we had been in a large group of people.
Next on the list was the San Juan Bautista Mission this mission is another awesome mission on the trail of missions all along the California 101 coast Hwy.
Our stay at Morgan Hill Thousand Trails was coming to an end. We received an invitation from Gail and Mike Alexander over at San Benito Thousand Trails on Sunday 4/31/15 for one last get together with the RVers here in the area. We met up  at their coach along with Janice and Dave Evans, Liz and Shorty Guptill and an old friend of Gails, Sherylen Patterson. We had a great potluck lunchand afterwards we played a little Rummikub. What a great game, I just can’t get enough of it…
Tuesday morning as we prepared to hit the road to Yosemite… oops!  bump in the road!!! Ready to roll the very last thing to do was pull in the slides. Drivers slide comes in normal, the passenger side NOT SO MUCH. Ed called an RV repair service and luckily they could come out the same day. Had to do one of our extended weeks here so the slide can be repaired. Parts had to be ordered from Winnebago so now we’re just waiting. Hopefully we can head on to Yosemite Monday or Tuesday of next week. Not the Adventure anyone looks forward to.
Until next time, with the update on repairs… Happy Trails and Safe Travels!
