Uncool - Mon., July 15

Our refrigerator appears to be dead, as in uncool. Everything we could think of was tried to make our refrigerator return to a cold state. The manual for our refrigerator has this to say about our code: "2nd time after reset: This is not owner serviceable. See your dealer or authorized Norcold Service Center."

Our most perishable refrigerated items are now in a medium-sized Coleman ice chest and the rest are in the freezer compartment of the fridge with three bowls of ice tucked in around them. We have a Good Sam Extended Warranty, so tomorrow we are driving the 5er up to Camping World in New Braunfels, Texas, for diagnosis, warranty authorization and, hopefully, repair or replacement.

Of course, once you have the rig going in for repair, you think of the other things that need repair. We now have a list of seven items total. We'll see how long this is going to take.

McKinney Falls State Park in Austin, Texas, is our destination for Saturday. We have reservations for four nights. I hope we can make it!!

This morning we had some rain and the temperature outside is pleasant today. There's a breeze and cloud cover. Yesterday was 100 degrees, today is 85. Quite a difference. We have a 60% chance of heavy rain and thunderstorms through Tuesday night. I can hear thunder in the distance as I type. The sky is dark too. Wheeeee!

I'm going to the office to check for mail before the downpour starts.

Travel Bug out.
