The last few days have been going by so fast, that except for a quick read of a few blogs, I have had very little time or energy,] for the computer.
Pictures? Give Craig a digital camera and he will shoot a couple hundred shots in a day. Who has time to process or even look thru that many images? I haven't had time to look at the few I have taken.
Is all of this bad? No. Living is so much better than sitting around the house dreaming!
Someday, after we get back home, I will have time to review the picture folders.
But not tonight!
Yesterday morning we left the KOA and drove 20 miles to the Alfa repair shop called Alfateers. When Alfa went under, the employees formed this repair center company and specialize in fixing Alfas.
We had a very long list of work that we want done. We decided not to trust what La Mesa told us about maintenance, and are having everything checked out here. We also are having the seals on the slide replaced, and some EternaBond applied to the top edge of the slide to prevent further leakage. We know the bill will be steep, but we want things done right!
So far they have solved two problems, the electrical and the tank sensors, by simply finding loose wires. We had a problem filling the fresh water tank, and they found a kinked hose in the line.
As at many RV service centers, we have been able to park overnight with a 50 amp hookup. This week there are five rigs with their owners staying in them. We all gather at a picnic area while our Alfas are taken back into the work areas. At the end of the day they are brought back out and reparked and connected up for us.
The other couples have been quite friendly. Tonight we had a bit of a party celebrating that we would all be moving on tomorrow. One couple had driven cross country from South Carolina just to bring their rig to Alfateers. They are having extensive remodeling done and a full body paint job on the outside. They will fly back home and leave the Alfa here for several months. I asked why they came all this way, and couldn't they have gotten the work done on the East coast somewhere. Their answer was that they wanted it all done right and this was "the place!"
Yesterday we took the rental car and went to the Getty Museum. Another of my long list of places I have always wanted to see! The art was amazing of course, but the building and garden design was also a feast of fantastic views.

Our repairs should be done tomorrow, and they will be giving her a wash and cleaning the carpets as a bonus free service. (Nothing is really free, but it won't be a line item on the bill!)
We have a good feeling about this place and the people who work here!
Yawn! No editing ... just publish and go back to bed!
