MAROONED

December 8, 2014

DRY DOCK AGAIN

Well I am beginning to believe that a lot of resistance suggests that I am doing something right.  If so, I must be doing really great now.  When I left Lampassas for Austin I was under a major deluge of rain.  On the way I noticed that my electric trailer brakes and the right turn signal weren’t working.  Google maps misguided me, then I finally found the RV park…and a nail in my tire.

Fortunately an RV repair man came in the office when I was checking in.  He put a plug in my tire for free and offered to come back for the other repairs later.  At least I won’t have to haul the trailer to a shop with no brakes.  So even without brakes, I DID get a break!

With all this trouble I will be busy getting repairs.  I am finding rewards as we locate the team to build a new space venture.  I think we are building towards some real progress now, so hang on for more news to follow.
