Good afternoon Troopers ... .. 

Update on the Camper:  Called me on Monday, A/C unit replaced and ready for pick up. Drove to the dealership, checked in with the service writer. Cornerstone (warranty provider) had approved the replacement. Dealer actually put a bigger unit on than we had originally. Old one was a 13,000 BTU and new one is  a 15,000 BTU unit. Cost to me, $200. SO, back to camp, get trailer into the site, un hook, and one of the slides will not extend. Call service dept, drag camper back in on Tuesday morning, drop it off.  They called and said that the slide was fixed. Apparently a drive belt came loose. They brought the camper out for us to hook up and the Landing gear motor will not operate. Oh Joy! it's 1700 hr and they close at 1800. Tech came and looked at it, bad switch. Back to the bay for repair. They did get it fixed or replaced and the trailer brought back out. Paid them for the repairs, $100 for the slide and $100 for the switch, most of which was labor.

End result, we are back out at the campground, ALL slides working and a COLD A/C unit.  Happy Campers again!!

Hope the fires in California are getting under control and that y'all get some much needed rain, soon. Raining, here,  almost every day. Sometimes  in morning, other times in the afternoon or evening.

Enjoy the day, take care!   Toujours Pret!

This Dragoon Saloon is at Rose Barracks in Vilseck, Germany. 3d Squadron WOLFPACK put it together. Told them it was about time they got in step with Dragoon Base.

That is the 2d Cavalry Association president Bryan Denny at the bar. Great guy and loads of fun to have a beer with.

I lived in scottsdale for not quite 4 months and I thought I explored the entire Arizona.  I even went to Winslow AZ to find that girl in a flat bed Ford, My lord

I never saw the Dragoon Saloon because Tombstone it was too far south and east.
