|Ruth and Paul|
Paul is a retired engineer and Boeing executive. They bought a used Country Coach a couple of years ago which is Paul's ongoing hobby. He's much more interested in fiddling with it than living in it. Pay attention. This is the kind of person it takes to be an engineer and a Boeing executive. Paul keeps a list of all the problems in the coach. Not just the current problems... ALL the problems. The top of the list shows the problems that have been fixed, how and when they were fixed and what to do if they recur. It is in blue. The middle of the list shows problems he is currently working on and what he has tried. It is in yellow. The last part of the list shows problems that are low priority and haven't been worked on yet. It is pink. It is not enough that he can pull these up whenever he wants and look at them on his laptop. He has them printed out on actual paper for quick reference, in triplicate I'll wager. Whenever something gets fixed, he throws away the old lists and prints out new, updated ones. That's why he was a big executive and why MY motorhome is going to gradually decay into dust. I don't have any lists. We had a couple of lights out in our coach and Paul came over and fixed them. Then he gave us a couple of spare halogen bulbs for future use. He has 4 dozen of them, just in case, along with 10 of every type of fuse known to man.
the previously mentioned Mt. Walker. This is a mild peak, only about 2800 ft high, but it is the only mountain facing the Puget Sound with a road to the top. There is also a foot trail up, but you know I'm not messing with that. The view from the top is spectacular, or at least it would be if we weren't surrounded by smoke.
