We were all looking forward to a little break from routine & the chance to take the RV out again for the first time since we moved here to SLC. Per usual, and I'm happy to say that I've really come to expect it, we had a few "issues" to resolve. This time, when Steve dewinterized the rig, he couldn't get the water pump to funciton, & we had a propane leak that rendered the propane unusable for the first two days. That was actually a big deal because we knew when we left Moab, we would be camping without hookups--water or electric. But, I married a determined guy, and I'm happy to say that he's not afraid to ask for help from the more experienced full-timers in the campground....sooooo, he finally discovered that the handle for the winterizing on/off was broken, so even though he had turned it off, it had not actually turned off, and that was why the water pump wasn't functioning. The propane issue turned out to be rather complicated, but after stopping at the local auto parts store daily, sometimes twice daily for the duration of our stay in Moab, we at least had one tank working safely, so that I had the ability to cook again! Always an adventure!!!
|The hike up to see Delicate Arch is 1.5 miles each way in the hot sun, with no shade.|

|These two bicker by day but are the best of friends by night. ;)|

|There is a window that you can climb up to get a different angle of the world's most famous arch. Apparently, getting there resulted in the demise of another pair of Steve's shorts. I never knew he was so good at splitting his pants! ;)|
