Motorhome is all packed and ready to go. First real road trip in my little Winnebago Warrior, and Ryan and our pups are going to. I’m exhausted and looking forward to unwinding and seeing Matt and Ashley.

Back home now. Motorhome started acting up in Boise. We took it to a Toyota dealer who was unable (or unwilling) to properly diagnose what was causing the problem. It was intermittent which makes it difficult on a 1992 vehicle. I’m sad and depressed because I planned this trip for a long, long time. But I’m grateful to the battalion of guardian angels who obviously kept us safe and got us home without too much damage.
This is the pic of her parked at the Toyota dealership.
I’m grateful we made it home safely. I’m very, very disappointed at not being able to spent time with Matt and Ashley before the baby comes though.
I do believe everything happens for a reason so that’s how I’m looking at this.
Blessed to be home.

After a day of rest, I decided to drive to Colorado and see my son and Ashley before my granddaughter arrives. My new RAV4 Hybrid got over 40 mpg and was wonderful to drive.
I decided to take the scenic route which was amazing.
We enjoyed a lovely visit and I feel so good to have salvaged my planned trip. They have a lovely home with a wonderful front porch. I sat out there and enjoyed the beautiful weather and the birds. (my car is parked in front of their house)
Matt and I went to Garden of the Gods – it was incredible.
While there, my wonderful mechanic (Blake Walker – Central Avenue Automotive) called and said he thinks he knows what’s going on with the motorhome. He’s picking it up for me, and I know he’ll get it right. Thank goodness!
Matt, Ashley and I went out to dinner – they are such a lovely couple! Their daughter (my first and likely only grandchild) is due November 9th.
I left Colorado on Saturday, September 7, 2019. My goal was to make it to Boise and stay there for the night. It was a very nice drive but I was sure glad to arrive at my hotel and get a nice dinner.
Arrived home at 3 PM on Sunday, September 8, 2019. Very good to be home and see Ryan and Mickey and Ava.
