We are still at the Quality Inn in Corinth, Mississippi. It seems we were a little optimistic about leaving here on Friday. Tom got a call to come over to the diesel shop this morning. When he got there they showed him our manifold and the several cracks that are in it. Tom made the decision to replace versus repairing. At this point we feel this decision will be less stressful. So there is a chance we will be leaving Saturday but the part arriving will dictate our departure.
We had the opportunity to see and talk with our grandchildren on a video chat today and that certainly brought brightness into our day.
Sunday, March 22, 2020 (Catch up post)
Another rainy day but we decided to take a ride.
|Raindrops on the front windshield. It was raining when|
we started the ride.
|This is were we turned around today.|
|The rain had stopped and with no one around |
we decided to take this walk .
|Wildflowers along the path and a new tree. (Upper Left)|
|This is a damp area and there is a lot of moss on the trail.|
|Clicking on the picture will enlarge it to read about this spot.|
|Just liked the look of this very large tree.|
|More views as we head home on the Natchez Trace.|
|This dome house was near the Natchez Trace RV Park|
we were staying at. We did see several of these in the
area . Googling the only thing I could find is that this
shape of a house is safer in a hurricane and a tornado.
We are so glad you stopped by!
If you have time to leave a comment we would enjoy hearing from you.
Aside from the expense it will be nice to have all these issues resolved, you will be able to travel confidently down the road :-)ReplyDelete
We would totally agree. If there was just a way to avoid the expense...lolDelete
Sorry for you with the unexpected repairs and costs. It's good that you are able to purchase new versa repairs as this will give you some warranty and peace of mind. It is a bummer when these kinds of things happen. Beautiful area you are in. I would have loved the walk in the forest.ReplyDelete
Definitely a bummer but at least it happened near a diesel shop that could help us get back on the road. We agree and feel better about purchasing new vs having it repaired.Delete
Bummer that the manifold cracked but getting a new one solves it permanently. At least you're in a pretty place and have the means to explore while you wait.ReplyDelete
All true. Better to find out now then somewhere else down the road.Delete
Trying to repair a Manifold is only asking for it to break again soon. Wise Choice to replace it.ReplyDelete
Be Safe and Enjoy!
It's about time.
We agree and one thing we do not need is another diesel shop stop for a while.Delete
Better safe than sorry. Beautiful country you’re hanging out in.ReplyDelete
We always better to be safe then sorry. It is a beautiful country around here hoping to come back when things are not so crazy.Delete
Hopefully this will be the last of repairs for a while. Safe travels and good health, take care Tom & Deb.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Bill. We hope so too. You and Patsy take care and stay health, also.Delete
Makes sense on the igloo house..thanks for Googling it! Hoping once this is all done the Stinger B will do you well for the next several years (or however long) I have to agree at least you are in a beautiful area to have to have the work done! Videoing with grandkids...priceless :)ReplyDelete
When there was the only the one by the RV Park I didn't think to much about it, the igloo house, but then we saw several more clustered together in a couple of different places and it made me curious. Wish I could have found out more. Fingers crossed the Stinger "B" is good for a couple of years at least. Always nice to see the grandkids on video.Delete
