Windy Wyoming, Wednesday, August 4, 2010

Can hardly believe today is Wednesday again. Due to our air conditioning being out last night, we sat outside in our chairs and met some of the nicest travelers. One couple was from Palm Springs California. They were very interested in our trip to Alaska and asked a lot of questions about it. The temperature cooled dramatically as the evening wore on. By morning we were sleeping under blankets again!

We ate a quick breakfast of cereal and stopped at a local McDonald’s for a cup of coffee so that we could hit the road early. We wanted to stop in Salt Lake City to see about the air conditioning by lunchtime. We called Camping World and they could not fit us in today. After several calls to other dealers, we got an authorized Winnebago dealer who could see us at 1:00 p.m. We had no trouble getting there, even with the time changing to mountain time. We’re only 2 hours different from home now.

We found the dealership in Salt Lake City without any trouble. A nice young man named Tim helped us and I told him I was concerned about our wine from the Napa Valley getting too hot in the RV while they were working. He assured me they would take care of it. While he drove the RV back to the technician, we walked down the street to a great deli to pick up a sandwich for lunch. Before we could get back to the dealer, he called saying they had found the problem. Without going into too much detail, we think the voltage in last night’s campsite was high and it tripped the breaker and prevented it from resetting. Nothing wrong with the system. By the time we got back to the dealership, Tim had the RV sitting in the lot with the generator going to keep the RV cool for our wine. He was a great serviceman and I’ll write an e-mail to his manager when I get home telling him what great service we received. And they didn’t charge us anything for looking at it. So we sat right there in the parking lot and had our lunch before hitting the road again.

During the afternoon we had a lot of windy areas that kept us on our toes. We also saw the first bad clouds and lightening that we’ve seen in a long time. But we never hit any rain. We reached our evening destination by 5:00 p.m., Ft. Bridger, Wyoming. We are in a quiet little campground so we are looking forward to a restful evening. We should get to Cheyenne Wyoming tomorrow evening.

Stay tuned. Bonnie
