Thanks to everyone for your comments of concern, good luck, and offers of assistance. Fortunately, as I type this post we are on our way west to Kansas City at last. We did make one slight change and we left Hwy. 50 at Jefferson City to go up to I-70. Just for this leg of the trip. When we leave K.C. in 5 days, we'll be on Hwy. 50 once again.
We didn't leave the Lost Valley Lake Resort until close to 3:30 so we needed to bogey down the Interstate instead of poking along a scenic byway. We hope to arrive at the RV park before dark. I called the office to see if we could reinstate our reservation and the old guy on the phone told me it had never been cancelled. Hopefully, he is correct and we will have a space to park when we get there.
The service tech from 3R RV Service Center (Union, Missouri) arrived just after 2:30 pm. He was efficient and seemed to know just what to do and within 20 minutes the job was finished. No serious damage had been done....jack should be fine and dandy tonight when we need to use it. The charge for this repair was $185.00. Really, that isn't bad at all since the guy had to make a service call to such a distance from their shop. It will put a small crimp in the budget for sightseeing in K.C., but that's OK as we will still have a lot of fun.
We have several things planned to do in the Kansas City and Independence area. Some of it centering around another "dead president." We had planned to go to a Kansas City Royals baseball game Sunday afternoon, but that is the item that will be axed from the budget this time around. We'll catch them on the next stop when we will also allow time for a game with the St. Louis Cardinals. It's all good!
As I'm writing this we are still about 31 miles from our exit to the campground. Here in Central Time Zone it is about 6:20 pm. A long and tiring day even though we sat around and did a bunch of waiting. We'll probably just grab a burger tonight for dinner (not White Castle, though) and get to bed early. Tomorrow will be a brand new day. (profound statement....like tomorrow would be an old day???)
I hope everyone enjoys the rest of the weekend.
Special thanks to Sam and Donna for their generous offer to come to our rescue. I don't have a link to their blog now, but please look at my blog roll and find them listed. They are 5th Wheel Vagabonds and really nice folks!
Until next time....so long for now!
