10/11/16 (Tuesday) in Flagstaff, AZ (Freightliner)
Didn’t sleep all that well last night, but that just happens sometimes. We ran our generator while we had breakfast. I did a quick clean of the floors. Then we took showers in the facility (really nice!). We pulled in the slides and brought up the jacks. We went grocery shopping. For lunch we treated ourselves to LaFonda. When we returned we noted that they still hadn’t moved Miss Journey. We gathered our books and computers and headed for the lounge. There we met another RV couple. Wonderful. So all afternoon we Rvers and a couple truckers had some great conversations.
At 2 we saw they’d taken our coach away, but at around 3:30 they told us that the wrong part had arrived and they’d already taken apart our rig to insert the new part. Thus we had to stay in a hotel. We were shown a list of likely hotels. I got to thinking that this was THEIR fault, tearing down our coach before they realized the part they’d received wasn’t the right one. I asked to speak to the manager. The lady we’d been communicating with went to the manager and returned telling me that when we showed them our hotel receipt they would reimburse us. Whew!
We called LaQuinta then, getting their LAST room! We said goodby to our RV and trucker friends, got our clothes and personal items out of Miss Journey as well as made sure they had good power connected, to keep our refrigerator cool without running down our batteries.
Once we checked in (4 people were being told the hotel was full) we walked to a “Five Guys” burger joint and shared a yummy burger. Everything felt more like a vacation at that point.
I wonder what tomorrow will hold for us.
