Beautiful and desperately needed rain. ..although we don’t normally travel on bad weather days, it was a really short trip. . .and no major highways, so we headed out. . .all was well until we got to Dad’s place. . .started backing in to the same place we’ve been parking for the last two years. . .never when it’s been wet though!

DRAMA. . .trust me. . .if there is any drama to be found. . .WE will find it.   This is probably the only soft spot in the whole place. . .and once it sunk. . .there was no moving it!

Thank the Lord for Emergency RoadSide Service to the rescue. . .thank you Hatch Wrecker Service. . .they were so nice!  Even offered to trade us their entire business, all the equipment, and the employees for our rig. . .even swap.  THAT was a definite NO. . .Thanks!  Once we got out of that little jam. . .we headed to the nearest RV park.
