We set off for Walmart for our overnight stop. NO, you cannot park overnight in the Walmart on Overland in Boise. At that point, Doug noticed the repair was hot. Oh no, that can't be good. By this time, it was getting dark. We needed to find a auto parts store. We did and the lovely staff told us that the Smoke Shop just down the block let overnighters park in the vacant lot next door. The woman confirmed that was so and we limped there.
Upon investigation in the morning, Doug discovered that the rim was bent. We bought a new rim and tire and he did the repair again. It went much quicker as he has done this several times now. This is not necessarily a good thing. We finally left Boise around 1:00 pm. Of course we were nervous about whether this time it was actually fixed. We stopped several times to check on it.
At Tulalip, the wheel was warm. We got set up at Tulalip Casino rv parking. We did not sleep much that night and in the morning drove around a bit and it didn`t heat up anymore.
So we were off. It`s only about a 2 hour drive from Tulalip to Langley. We arrived at the border at 10:30 am and even though we never have any problem with crossing, this time it was even easier because the woman in the booth was changing shifts. Only question was "How long have you been away?".
We were at our friends place where we park every spring and fall by 10:45 am. They have been doing some renovating and the area in the back of their acreage now has a riding ring and a very nice driveway. We are parked there, under the willows, beside a pond. Lots of daffodils. Probably the nicest rv site we have ever had.
Graeme came over for lunch and visited until he had to leave for work. About that time, it started to rain, then POUR. It poured like that most of the night and started back up this morning. Holy cow, thundering down. We couldn't even hear over the rain.
This morning we have come to the library to use the internet and pick up some books and movies. The gardens are full of daffodils.
We will blog again in a few days. We will be here for 10 days before we set off to the park.
