4 days ago, lifted the bed (engine compartment cover/storage) to retrieve 2 chairs.  The hinge broke. Spent the day disassembling, repairing, and reassembling the bed.  When Clark went to lower it, the gas support shocks were locked in place, wouldn't retract.

3 days ago, Clark spent the day looking for the support shocks at every auto parts, rv parts and marine store in town...unsuccessfully.  Need to be ordered.  No time, We'll do with out.  

2 days ago, Clark bought $15 plastic pocket door tie back strap opened it up to install and it broke.  spent the whole day looking for another...unsuccessfully. 

Yesterday: Clark broke off a tooth- Muscled my way in for a repair

The day of departure.  Ellen said, while getting ready, "Day one."  Clark replied "Who won?"    Ellen "DAY ONE"   Clark "WHO WON"  Ellen "Who's on First?"  Clark "What?"  Ellen "DAY ONE"

Supposed to leave today 10:30am

Just before hooking up to leave, ran an errand in the PT (tow car)  and it stopped dead cruising down the road. A tow to the repair shop......we need a timing belt.  5 hours of labor and lots of $$$$$!  We're still waiting.  It'll be end of day today or tomorrow am.
Can't really stay at the house - toilets are shut off, frig & freezer are shut off.  No dry food.

It is now 7pm.  We have the PT, it is hooked up and we are on the road!  Against Clark's father in-laws best wishes to leave tomorrow due to the eminate thunder heads and nightfall.

8pm This is kind of fun!

9pm Passing all the truckers @ 75mph.  Loving it!

Ellen looking for Wal-Marts on the computer.  Yes.  We are connected on the internet and have had a connection the entire time.  Can you hear me now?  Verizon rocks!

Found website that shows all Wal-marts that do and don't allow overnight camping.  We're in luck.  Hays has one and they allow.

12 midnight arrived in Hays Kansas.  Stayed in Wal-Mart parking lot.  Are we really sleeping in a Wal-Mart parking lot?  Clark has spent the night in some odd places in his time, but certainly not by choice.
