Yesterday was a much needed lazy day for us, after our week at the RV show. We slept in, then didn’t do much of anything all day long. Terry did a couple of loads of laundry, we checked e-mail, cruised the internet, watched TV, and I napped for a while on the couch.
We needed to unload our display tables, books and RV guides, and everything else we had used at the RV show from our van and get it all packed back into the bays of our motorhome, but we both seemed to be drained of energy and couldn’t get motivated to get started.
About 5:30 we drove to Hummelstown for dinner with longtime subscribers Dave and Thelma Middleton, and their friends Gary and Donna Rath, at a place called Hoss’s Steakhouse. The company and conversation were great, but the restaurant seemed to be having an off day. Dave and I ordered our steaks medium rare, and they were very well done, we asked for bread a couple of times and never got it, and when I tried their chocolate pudding for dessert, it tasted sour.
Dave and Thelma felt bad, because they had invited us, but it wasn’t their fault, and they have had good meals there in the past. Maybe the manager was taking a day off or something.
Back at the Thousand Trails campground, I answered a couple of questions from readers who wanted to know about any suggestions I had for an RV park in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, and how I felt about using synthetic oil and transmission fluid in a diesel pusher motorhome. I replied to the first one that since we have only visited the Valley once, and were not impressed enough to stay long, I didn’t know enough about it to suggest an RV park for their winter stay; and told the second person that while I don’t have synthetic oil and transmission fluid in our Winnebago Ultimate Advantage yet, I plan to switch to both at our next service. I know many RVers who do use both, and report good success with them.
Then we spent the rest of the evening watching television, including the season premiers of two of our favorite shows, Two And A Half Men, and Pawn Stars. They’ve moved The Big Bang Theory to a new night, so we’ll have to wait until Thursday to see its season premier.
And that was about it for our Monday. Like I said, it was a lazy day, and that’s just what we needed.
Thought For The Day – I don’t mind going nowhere as long as it’s an interesting path.
