Brian thought that was a good idea, so after showering and breakfast, Steve went out to off-load the quads. Rain is in forecast for today and tomorrow but it's supposed to be back to sun on Saturday...so we're hoping to get out for a ride with Dale and Chloe. We expect to have the truck back by then but figured he should off-load the quads just in case.
We headed out about 10:00, following Dale and Chloe to the Tonto National Forest Office to pick up some permits to ride in the area they are planning on taking us to. There is no cost for the permits, but they are required.
By this time it was going on 3:00…wow, where has the day gone? We were going to stop at Camping World for a new vent for the trailer but we got stuck in heavy traffic so decided to just go home...arriving shortly after 4:00.
We wanted to take Dale and Chloe to dinner, so they suggested a popular local pub...The Handlebar Pub and Grill. What great place...and very busy on this Thursday night! We enjoyed a couple of beers from the extensive list, and dinner. A great spot...thanks for showing us one of your favourite spots Dale and Chloe!
I was back just before 12:30 to find Steve right where I left him...on the laptop editing pictures. He hadn't heard from Brian at Midway yet, so he called...apparently they couldn't find an issue. He said it fired up and ran just fine this morning. They were going to fire it up again around 3:30 and to call back then. Well, if we pick the truck up today, we would be smack-dab right in the middle of rush hour. He suggested tomorrow, but that was out because we are going riding. Steve said they could just keep it for the weekend if they wanted, Brian agreed...so we will pick it up Monday. Yay! We have the Chevy Equinox to continue driving for the weekend!
With that taken care of, we decided to go to Desert RV and take a look at what they had in their parts department...we picked up a new latch for a cupboard and some led lights. Next onto Camping World to see about a replacement vent for the stove topexhaust fan. The ones Steve has found are so cheaply made that he decided to see if he can find a better made one on-line.
When we got home, Dale was loading their side-by-side onto a trailer. Once he had finished that, he brought down their other truck, hitched up another trailer...and Steve loaded our quads onto it. Our fifth-wheel down there, with the rental car beside it and our quads all loaded onto the trailer, ready to head out in the morning....
