Fabulous Luck

I haven't been able to post the last few days due to surreal serendipity.

Today I woke up alive  in the Blue Ridge mountains near Asheville, North Carolina. At daybreak I tiptoed outside discovering a thick fog blanketed the dawn. 

Minute by minute the fog began slowly disappearing revealing 100 feet of visibility, then 500, then 1000, then 1500 feet and so on until the blue ridge mountains slowly appeared in the far distance.

Mother nature magic!  An incredible way to start the day. Alive. In a fog.

More good news...

The motorhome transmission repairs were completed in Greenville, South Carolina. The final cost came in at $300 under their original guesstimate of $1600 at just under $1300. 

We took it on a test drive about 75 miles of climbing foothills and ascending grades it was still performing beautifully which is how we came to be camping in Asheville, North Carolina. 

It was marvelous fun for me to be a passenger in my own motorhome. I never knew it could be such a delight. 

On another issue that cropped up last week, the overhead heat pump that provides heat and air conditioning suddenly malfunctioned.  It was installed 20 months ago. Tuesday it was temporarily repaired by a mobile RV tech, so I once again have the comforts of air conditioning. This is a huge blessing in August! 

Even more good news, the mobile tech is honoring the 4 months left under warranty, new parts are supposed to arrive next week to finalize the repair and rumor is that it won't cost me any additional money, though I did pay a $75 service call fee, well worth it too in view of things.

Good tidings continue... it's 14 degrees cooler in the mountains than Greenville. I've learned many ways to do two handed tasks with just one hand.


Thanks for stepping in today.

  3. Glad you are doing well. Breaking something as you did or getting very ill while traveling alone is one of my big fears, so glad you have someone with you and are managing.

  4. All wonderful things are happening. Hope it stays that way

  5. So glad things seem to be working out. Especially your being able to manage better with one hand. It sounds like your pain level is lower too. That is good.


Life is goof!
