Ready to Regale



Jackie and I hit the road. We've been to Lake Tahoe. She had been there before and really loved it. Weather was perfect. We kayaked and swam. We also took a trip to the northern California coast. She had never been there and she loved that too. It really is spectacular. We saw too much good stuff to even describe it all.

Things went a little downhill from there. We had planned to take out the boat but the frame of the boat trailer broke right at the bar that hooks to the hitch. Fortunately it happened while the boat was already in the water as I was pulling up the launch to park. If it had happened while driving to the lake on the interstate.. I shudder to think what might have happened. Of course, then there was the problem of getting the boat back out of the lake without a usable trailer. But, the father of the Jo children managed to patch up the trailer (no surprise there!) by drilling holes in strips of flat metal and bolting it to the frame where he had also drilled holes. This required going home to get supplies. We ended up having to leave the boat in the water and the trailer in the parking lot overnight but everything is home safe and sound now. This is Jackie's last night here and we have not decided what to do tomorrow. Blog you later.

Sounds like you are having a great time. Glad the trailer did its thing off the interstate.
