Today we unfortunately didn’t do as much as we wanted, but still had a great time. Rhonja prepared breakfast in the microwave, bagels with cream cheese and bacon. Apparently bacon is easy to prepare in a microwave, and our stove isn’t perfect either so it was a great solution. It turned out awesome. Rhonja claims bagels are pretty awesome.
Our RV has issues with the AC though and also our sewage is a bit leaky. (Yesterday I tried hooking it up, but even though all valves were shut, there was an immediate flow of nasty stuff. Today it dripped nonstop during our trip, which technically is littering, which technically can be fined up to $1000 if we believe the signs next to the road.
Yesterday we called our RV support and they told us to visit a place in Fresno, so they could take a look at our issues. After an hour drive we arrived at Cruise America Fresno. Immediately a woman came to us and asked if she could help us. Unfortunately she apparently could not. They were a small site and only had experience with the larger RV models, so we made a call to support again.
Support was going to check around the area for a garage that could help us and call us back.
We waited 5 minutes in our RV and thought, screw it, we have no idea how long this’ll take so we’ll just do some Fresno sightseeing.
We made the right decision: we visited the Crazy Squirrel, which is a boardgame store. Also went to a comic store for a change, where Rhonja bought a small Legend of Zelda figurine, and afterwards headed to a huge shopping area to grab some lunch at the ” Cheesecake Factory”.
Boy were we fooled. That place is just a regular restaurant and do also serve a few cheesecakes which admittedly do look great. The food was still great though, but we didn’t expect to get pizza and pasta there. But the meals, despite us getting a lunch version, were too large for us to fit in a slice of cheesecake. Yes, even when split between the two of us. It’s as horrible a thought to us as it is to you 🙁
With more time to burn we visited some more stores that seemed appealing like Gamestop, Disney and the like. Still waiting to hear from Cruise America about our RV aid.
After 5 hours we decided it was high time to head out. Even if they found a garage able to help they wouldn’t have time anymore anyway. Our RV site was also still a 2 hour drive away so we started towards Yosemite. Rhonja drove while Marcel tried to call one last time. Obviously this was to no avail. But they’d keep looking and we have a $75 dollar budget to spend on fans. If only we could find one….
But like you just read Rhonja was behind the wheel. Which means adventures aplenty! Because the road to Yosemite isn’t flat like last time. Rhonja was rather apprehensive about driving the RV on mountainous roads but apparently Marcel thought she handled herself well enough already to try anyway as he refused to take the wheel. Typing this means we’re obviously still alive! Rhonja took it nice and easy and driving automatic is really quite helpful in the mountains. She even managed to back into our newest RV campsite with a little extra eyesight from Marcel.
Our dinner consisted of “leftovers” from yesterday since we bought way too much meat and the eggplant was enormous! Marcel served as an excellent grill master and Rhonja prepared the vegetables, wrapped in BACON this time. ‘MURICA!
We’re currently figuring out what exactly we want to do/see in Yosemite tomorrow. There’s plenty to see, so it’ll definitely be awesome!
