. NO WINE !!!. It was decided to make a trip to a liquor store further up in the RV. Oh no it won’t start, out into the rain again for urgent phone calls, Liz being dispatched to the liquor store on her own, in fact she ran there, apparently being chased by the Police, we reckon they were following the scary lady around. Me I am making frantic phone calls, whilst unbeknown to me Dave is calmly starting the RV, flash git. Two drowned rats eventually return and the journey begins, in the dark and rain on roads never travelled before to a destination unknown in a monster truck, nerve racking and nearly temper fraying . Late that night we arrive to be met by a very friendly helpful guy who had waited up to show us where to go. Lovely site, no lighting. Back to the reception to rouse our friendly host, you guessed it, we of course have no torch, this is essential to connect the power and water. Eventually we are set up and out comes the alcohol, thank god. The mood changes straight away and laughter began. The RV is fantastic now. Going to have a day to recover and replan our route, we are just outside Albany at this time.
Last morning in New York, and little did we know what was ahead of us what a fecking nightmare, this part im gonna pass over to terry to finish this off, but at least we laughing about it now. What started bad just got worse, phoned the RV rental company to arrange pickup, only to be told that it would'nt be until between 1330 and 1400 and not from our hotel. One yellow cab ride later, with mr friendly driving, we were eventually picked up. 45 minutes drive later after listening to every radio station broadcasting in New York for about 10 seconds at a time at 100 decibels minimum we arrive at the rental company, only to have to sit around for hours waiting for our actual RV to arrive !!. this is delivered by our recently met DJ, who then parks it in a lake for us to wade through. By this time Irene and Liz had decided to go and shop for supplies. Eventually Dave and I joined them in the shopping precinct, to be met by the two ladies with a shopping trolley full of everything except the essentials
