Our Location: Sam’s Club, Dayton, Ohio
No photos for this post, sorry, but it will be a quick update for everyone.
An interesting number of days we’ve been having. A few glitches, a few stresses, and a few laughs. However all is good and we are on our way, slowly southward. What we thought was a fixed issue in the spring wasn’t fixed and so we are still dealing with that. We made our way to Pyett Springs and they managed to fix half the problem with the other half being a long wait for the part but they assured us we could continue to our destination in the warmer climes of the south. And so we left the Binbrook area on Saturday morning under very cloudy, and spotty raindrop skies. We have our problem half fixed and will get the remainder fixed along the way. That’s the plan Stan!!!
We had no issues with travel, everything was good, the border crossing at Windsor/Detroit was fast with only a couple of question and they didn’t want to look in the rig this time, which they usually do. We continued along our merry way making our first night out of Canada being at Wapakoneta, Ohio and the Walmart there. From there we moved just a wee bit further the next morning to Piqua, Ohio and once again to a Walmart. We found some interesting things of note with regards to finding an RV repair center. A visit to Paul Sherry’s RV was a extremely unhelpful and truly they didn’t want to talk to us regarding parts or repairs or anything helpful. We didn’t buy our rig there, so go away. We did. We next stopped at Dave Arborgast RV in Troy, Ohio. They are booking repairs with a starting date of mid December. Ummmmm, I think not but they did send us to a very helpful tire fellow. Grismer Tires in Troy was extremely helpful, very friendly and I would say if in the area and need tire assistance that’s where I would go. In a round about way we found out about Midway Trailers in Dayton from them. We pulled into Midway Trailer’s yard right around lunch and had them take a look at our remaining half of the problem. Sure enough, they have the part and will be able to fit us in tomorrow morning at 8 AM. Yeah.
We are currently sitting at the Sam’s Club parking lot, next door to Walmart (one allows parking, one does not). The sun is out and while a bit breezy it’s not cold, only cool with the temperature hovering around the 55F/12.7 C. The days ahead look sunny and bright with temps hovering at or above the current temperature. We are truly on our way to warmer weather.
I’ve been having some computer issues as well, my mouse is being an idiot and so I’ve been unable to update my blog. However I think I have this issue fixed now too. I’m on a roll. Haha
Thanks for stopping by, until next time… take care, be safe,
