One more obstacle, one more test, one more opportunity to hope for the best.
“We’re getting close!” This phrase has become somewhat of a joke between me and Sam these last few days. Every day there seems to be another challenge. Yesterday we found out that the “professionals” ordered the wrong radiator hose. So we started over again. The right hose came in this morning on an overnight flight from somewhere in Tennessee. That in itself is amazing, considering everything that could go wrong. So, right now, 9:00 p.m., there is a “mobile mechanic” setting up his flood light and doing his thing underneath the RV. At this point I can only hope. I have no expectations, just hope.
Meanwhile, yesterday we decided to drive our car to the next town, Williams, AZ, where we have been trying to get to for the past week. We were scheduled to stay there and ride a train to the Grand Canyon. Well, it’s a good thing we took this preview trip. The RV park was just a large parking lot with RV’s lined up as far as you could see, and the train looked very uncomfortable. So, given the recent “signs” we cancelled the whole thing.
Here is a picture of another cute Route 66 diner we saw in Williams. It is a very picturesque town, but we’ll save the rest for later.
