Friday morning was our departure day. We thought that a later departure would be better as 800 rigs lining up for the dump stations could take awhile! There was a lot of rig activity early but there was still many left when we were ready to pull out. We get to the dump stations (there were 9), and no line up so all was good!
We returned to the WalMart in Sturgis to do some last minute ‘shopping’ and lunch. On the way, John had to slam on his brakes to avoid a collision with a train crossing arm and lost his brakes on the truck! John finds a brake repair tech to look at his truck down the road from WalMart. The repairs took a couple of hours so while John waited for his truck, the rest of us worried through our lunch! They had to replace some steel brakes lines and then we were all back on the road again, heading to Camping World.
During our trip to the Maritimes, our toilet was not operating like it should so we ordered a part from Camping World before we went to Goshen. When we picked up the part, I realized that it would not completely resolve our toilet problems. Adding the additional parts, our parts bill would be more than a new toilet! It would be an easier job too, change one toilet for another instead of removing the old toilet, replacing the affected parts and re-installing the old toilet! Humm, let’s take the night to think about it, AND, the repair time would not cut into our Mexican Train time! In the morning, we asked John & Di and Ray & Donna to carry on without us as we could be awhile with repairs.
