I was awake a lot through the night...the wind was just a howlin'...but seems Steve slept right through it! We both had a very productive morning. The first thing I did was download pictures and scan the bill from RVZZ for the repair we had done yesterday. Steve wanted to get an email written and send it off to Traveland RV. He's had no luck so far with the emails and phone calls to Traveland...we're not getting a warm fuzzy feeling about this situation!
Once that was done, he called Midway Chevrolet in Phoenix while I did some baking. Midway is where we have taken the truck for the "squealing" issue while in the States. We received an email back from Isuzu saying that the issue has been handed over to the U.S. rep and he will be in touch with Midway to arrange to have our truck diagnosed. We hadn't heard from Midway yet, so Steve thought he'd give Brian (the service fellow that we deal with) a call. It works out well...we will drop the truck off on December 2 before we leave for Cabo San Lucas. That will give them 2 weeks to work on the truck. It also gives us a spot to leave Buster worry free...a much better option than leaving it in a hotel parking lot.
With all that done, Steve decided to head out for a walk around the campground while I took over the laptop and did some much needed banking...darned bills still need to be paid no matter where you are! Steve must have been gone for almost an hour but I hadn't really noticed...being so engrossed in what I was doing. He ended up doing much more than just a walk around the campground...going down to the day-use area where there were a bunch of people with easels set up painting the beautiful mountains. He ended up finding the trail that came back here to the campground. But he forgot to take the camera!
It was after 1:30 when Steve decided to grill up hot dogs on the barbecue for lunch...a rare treat! We don't have them often but I sure love them! We sat outside and ate at the picnic table. It was a mostly cloudy day but it was very warm out... 26C/78F.
With the forecast for the chance of rain tomorrow, Steve wanted to get out for another walk...and take his camera this time! The trail heads down towards the river valley from just beside our site and goes around to the day-use area. The Virgin River is down there but hard to see in some of these photos...
...that leads up to a viewpoint with some interpretive signs...
And that was pretty much our day. We have decided to stay one more day...and leave Friday to continue our journey south. This is a awesome spot to just chill after a hectic of a couple weeks of travelling and hiking.
