this weekend we spent all of our time trying to work out the fixing of the RV bathroom
it sort of went well, we hit major roadblocks but at least know more about the plumbing now. all those white plumbing fittings on the ends of the black tubes...those are all RV specific. we spent hours at lowes trying to mock up something that would work, and there was no solution to be had. okay, well the internet always has the answer, so we know of a possible solution. we knocked out a few things and faltered on others, but the idle issue is fixed, the bathroom floor is almost ready to be put down, the toilet is almost ready to be installed, and we think we know where to get the plumbing fittings we need. so really, even though it felt depressing and awful to do so much work for nothing, really it was not that bad.

saturday there was a bike race/fun ride. julie and i worked a stop where we made cyclists swim/wade out to us to get a signature. hee hee.

To check in you had to wade out to us

it got muddier and muddier as more people came and trampled through the reeds, and the rocks got wetter and dangerous for folks in cycling shoes. oops. lots of people fell in the water after trying to carefully wade across. it was warm outside, and noone was hurt, so it was funny.

Our muddy checkpoint stop

we had a nice campfire at the pipeline afterward, the smoke was just enough to totally ward off the mosquitos.

as usual, Dottie has been very cute and funny.

i'm really ready for the weekend to happen again, this week is going to kill me. i need time off, big time.

Meanwhile, Dottie has been honing her rodeo skills. This video was right after she threw up on me.
