Where I stayed
What I did
Fix RV and Truck
After hooking up and putting the AC on our Quique, we went to Costco to get another thing done to the truck – this time preventative
The news was not good. The motor would need to be replaced. However, they had to ship it from Indiana which would take many days. I could overnight it but that might cost $300 – 2 day might cost $200 of which would not be covered by my insurance. This is becoming the "repair" trip – spending more money on repairs and replacements than on the actual trip. So it looks like we might be here almost a week in the shop. At least they let us stay here.
After chilling out for a few hours to let the hot Tucson weather die down a little we went out to eat at what is said to be the oldest Mexican restaurant in the US – El Charro Café. It was one of those moderately priced places with a really retro interior and a huge bar. For some reason Pooh got the wings – in an original Mexican restaurant. At least she did not have the burger. I had this really excellent Chimichanga with all the fixings. The windows of the restaurant opened up to the mountains on the east side of town and it was really nice to see the sunset against it. After a big and filling dinner we did the free wi-fi thing at Barns and Noble for a few hours. I did more blogging and Pooh watched Dexter. After our session there it was time to go back to Arizona Roadrunner to spend the night in a garage.
