I know I worry too much. On any given night I can find something to worry about. I guess it's my nature.
The trouble that Judy is having with her Motorhome's breaking system, and the need to have it towed has been giving me some "worry."
I worried a lot about getting the Alfa home and getting it parked on the upper drive. Some of those concerns were validated by the fact that we couldn't get it in until an additional tree was removed.
I still have some small misgivings about pulling it out, turning it around and driving back up our road 1/4 mile of rather steep grade, but these thoughts are not too bothersome. I'll worry about that the night before we do it the first time.
What does worry me is what of something should go wrong with the Alfa, either now or in the future year or so we expect to be here, and we can't get her out? There is no way she could be towed.
Our road, Old Ranch Road, is a long, private, dead end road. There is only one way out. If we got stuck on it, we would block access to 24 other properties. It is unlikely that this would happen, but I can't help but think about it.
We live in a wildfire prone area. Our land burned over sometime in the past. We can see a few burned fence posts and charred redwoods. It could burn again. Every so often in "fire season" we talk about it. I'm of the mind that if a fire is threatening, I'm out of here. It's only a house and lots of "stuff." Craig would try to stay and run hoses.
I think that if a fire was threatening, we should be prepared to just leave the Alfa parked where she is. She can be replaced. If we blocked the road, the owners of the 24 down hill properties could very well sue us.
Fire, breakdowns, not imaginary potential problems, but things we should think thru before they happen.
Right now Craig is running the generator trying to bring the batteries up to a full status. They are new batteries and we have been using the lights a bit on and off. He has run the generator before, but not for very long. I hope the neighbors don't get mad. They are all some distance away, but I hate to pollute the mountain air. I can smell the diesel. Not nice.
Do I sound "down" tonight? I guess I am. I want to go somewhere!
