Moving on – to Decatur, IN for Repairs

5/4/14 Sunday in Decatur, IN (Allied Recreation Group)

After good by hugs with Karen/Sherie we were on our way by 8:30 am. Nice to get started sooner rather than later. We were grateful that Karen/Sherie showed us a good route to take, since Ohio is their home state they know the roads. Other than stops for fuel and a rest, it was pretty uneventful. I must note that Ohio needs to put more resources into their roads, they’re pretty rough in general. US 68 was the pits-2 lane with many bad potholes and patches yet US 33 was wonderful-4 lane much of the way and smooth. Lots of farmland along our route. We did hit a lot a wind in the last part of our trip, so John had to work harder to stay straight and our fuel mileage suffered. Quite a few dead critters on the road; some deer, several raccoons and opossums.

Arriving by noon we got fresh water from their dump/water site (they just have a dirt parking lot with power supplied  where we park the RV). The pluses are we have satellite reception as well as WiFi from the office. John spent his afternoon watching golf and car racing while I napped. Hey, I didn’t sleep well last night. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

We’re supposed to meet with the team tomorrow, I think at 7 am. The repairs we’re here for: D/S water leak and bedroom water leak that they’d repaired in September but returned. Also to attach the wiper seal to our front P/S (passenger side) slide. Plus service our engine (fluids and filters) and inspection of chassis for lubrication. Also check window weep holes at D/S (driver’s side) chair and P/S chair.

A bit of spring to brighten your day.

About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
