    Vehemus interuptus

    Our travels seem to have been put on hold.

    A Windstorm managed to cause a seam on the Dancer to pop loose, allowing water to get in, just in time for Monsoon Rains to bring plenty of water.

    Turns out that the plywood they use in these things is NOT made to deal well with being wet.
    It will take a week's work, or more to repair.



    Of course, we got off lucky, compared to my nephew, whose barn fared far worse.

    Someone stole the barn's wheels during the storm, too?

    Presumably you'll be looking for new manufacturer panels pre-shaped and pre-decorated, but I'm only guessing. That doesn't look like something to build up from scratch.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    No, not at all. This all occurred a week or so back.

    I know you will be glad when it's finally fixed so you can travel again before summer is gone.

    Will your nephew have a barn re-raising?

    Hopefully. He is carefully collecting all the wood that is salvageable. and waiting on the insurance report.
    The barn is over 100 years old. Hopefully it can be restored.

    Re: Vehemus interuptus

    Other than the repair work to the coach, how is the planning coming? Have you figured out how you will get the phone and network access you'll need in your early locations? Have you picked a target first location?

    We have a Verizon Mi-Fi hub. That should serve our needs for now.
    We are still planning on going to Maine before the cold weather sets in. Then follow the Autumn change down the Appalachian foothills to Atlanta for a long overdue visit with family there. Holidays in Florida and perhaps slide along the southern route to California for the winter. We'll see how that works.

    Sounds like a great trip!
