Monday, May 28 - Memorial Day
Up again at 6:45 to read my devotions, and then begin cleaning up to prepare to leave. We are starting to get a system for this trailer, but I'm sure it will take several more trips to really have our "jobs" delineated so all runs smoothly in pack-up. This morning I took the inside duty while Rick worked outside. We were doing great until he couldn't get the water hose off. Put on the list - a channel lock wrench (adjustable). Rick holds the bar on the beds from the outside to make it easier to get the support bracket in and out. However, when we went to dump, we evidently only got the black water to empty due to a slight hill at the dump station. Lesson learned on that one - we unknowingly carried a 2/3 full gray water tank clear up to Emigrant Springs where we used an vacant full hook-up spot at the campground to empty and then left a few dollars with the campground host! We had realized it was still full when we stopped for lunch.

We run back to the trailer at Stanfield Rest Stop to grab a bite to eat, then another stop at La Grande for round two of shopping at Wal-Mart (we had another list by now!). Home around 4:45. Tired!! But a great visit with Luke and Kady and we learned more about our trailer and truck. We still are not happy with the mileage we are getting, but that might just be what we have to live with for the time being!
