Today was not a big day. No problems, and our travels went fine, but it was a day in transit.
We got up at a reasonable time in Silver City. Moving from one place to another in the motorhome isn't as simple as hopping in a car. After getting up and having a bit to eat, we put the dolly on the motorhome, put the truck on the dolly, put running lights on the truck (they're held on with magnets), and use ratchet ...
