US-20 is a lovely road traversing the state of Oregon from East to West. I love this road. I have our Rand McNally GPS set to provide warnings: for turns, for steep hills, for time zone changes, etc. Part of our drive on Sunday was through this section of US-20. There are as many curves as Bayer has aspirins! And the Rand McNally kept announcing: “right curve ahead”, “left curve ahead”, “winding road ahead”. After several hours of this Peggy looked over at me and said, “Aren’t you glad you never got that Parrot? As much as she says that, exactly the same way every time, the parrot would have those phrases down pat and that’s all you’d be hearing out of the silly bird: ‘Squawk – right curve ahead’ ”
Serendipity is finally talking to us
We have owned this coach for 14 months. Out of that time we were stationary for 9 months. We haven’t driven her all that much. But since adding the Silverleaf monitoring system I’m finally feeling as if I know her a little better.
Last year when we were returning to WI from OR I thought I was having problems with the coolant temp. Off and on again those concerns have been repeated. But as I’ve had time to watch the actual temps being transmitted by the sensors in real time I’m realizing that the analog gauges in this coach are simply un-reliable. Silverleaf lets me know what the engine is doing and I can finally drive her as she deserves to be driven.
You can’t beat familiarity when it comes to operating an RV. The better you know your ride the better job it can do for you.
Did You Have The Best Time?
If you haven’t seen this graphic before, it’s worth a glance — and perhaps some consideration when you plan your next RV trip. The busiest National (and Canadian) Parks are busy, busy, busy…. and picking the right time to visit can be the difference between enjoying your visit and wishing you had not come.
So, I enclose it here for your consideration.
Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll talk with you tomorrow. 🙂
