Up and out of Alma, NE by 10:30. Our day was going great until just South of Salina, KS on I- 135. John and I heard a noise and thought it might be a tire so he pulled over and we got out and walked around the RV and saw nothing wrong. We got back in and headed off again when the truck lost power then started blowing white smoke. This was NOT good. John thinks it might be a turbo. After several calls and hours waiting help arrives. Yeah!!
This is never a good sight.
Here we sit watching the traffic go by and waiting on the tow trucks. The whole time we sat here we never saw a police car come by.
Yeah! Help arrives at last. This is the tow truck for the Freightliner.
Hooked up and ready to roll.
The tow truck for the Mobile Suites arrived.
The tow truck guys getting ready to leave with with Freightliner while John drove the truck towing the Mobile Suites. The windshield was quite dirty.
And we’re off to the truck repair shop then to the campground.
John driving one of the tow trucks. He is happy we are making progress.
Fred worn out from his traumatic day. By this time his dinner was three hours late. Poor doggy.
Almost to the truck repair shop.
Yeah we made it…..now on to the campground.
Finally….here we are at Spring Lake Campground in Halstead, KS.
Tomorrow we hope to get word on the truck. The towing company guys were very helpful.
While we were getting set up the couple from next door came over to introduce themselves. They recognized John and I from working on the parking team at the Escapees Rally in Gillette, WY. Small world, huh?
What a day? We are tired tonight and hope tomorrow brings good news.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
