Wednesday night, Ann & Bob (Sister & Brother in law) and friends, Karen and Chris, came for dinner. Here's the dinner buffet. Chris is seated on the couch, Karen and Bob are standing:
Today turned out to be a good day in several ways. We were scheduled to go to Camping World to have our Even Brake system completely replaced. When we left Tucson, the Motor Home Monitor was completely dead. We weren't getting any signal at all. We contacted the Colorado Springs CW and they called Roadmaster. Turns out the system was still under warranty. Because it's changed so much in the 2 years since we bought it, they needed to replace all components - at no charge to us.
Our appointment was set for 10:30, but of course, Jim was eager to get there early, so we were ready to pull out by 9:30. Guess what! I got to drive the rig - by myself -- from the campground to Camping World! I stopped at the propane filling station on the way out of the campground, and then drove the half mile or so to CW. Jim led the way in the Saturn. I was so excited - and a little bit nervous. I'd driven this rig on the test drive, but the salesman and Jim were right there with me. I'm determined to be able to handle this rig on my own, so every chance I get to practice is good. I did great! At least I didn't scrape any signs or trees, and got us out of the campground, through an intersection (with construction going on), down the road and into the Camping World parking lot.
We got the system replaced and were on our way in a couple of hours. Jim took over the driving, and I brought the Saturn back to the campground. He went on to the truck stop down the highway to fill up with diesel and have the rig washed. The diesel set us back about $230 for just over half a tank, but the wash was only $63!
I took a walk around the campground to get some pictures.

On the lower level, there are some really nice tent sites:
We've spotted several critters today. Rabbits (I tried last evening to get pictures of them playing, but they didn't turn out), Canadian Geese, 2 coyotes, 3 mule deer, and an assortment of birds. I heard a meadow lark, but couldn't spot it.
