Change of Plans

We are staying in Idaho Falls a little bit longer than we had planned, and it is not due to weather. Yesterday while Bob was working on the computer at the dinette and Jo was on the recliner talking to her brother a park custodian was weed eating our site. Out of the blue we hear this bang and then a crackling noise, a projectile from the weed eater had cracked one of the tempered glass windows. We have dual pane windows, luckily the inside clear window was not broken.

Here is the look that Bob saw:

Here is how it looked from the outside:

The park was very apologetic and is paying for everything. The mobile service is billing them directly so we are not involved in that at all which is good. The park did call the mobile service and tell them to overnight the glass so that is good. That's the good news, the bad news is that this glass takes about 2 weeks for delivery so we are stuck here until the replacement glass is received and installed. The only set thing we have is Bob's fishing trip in Canada in mid-June so the impact will be staying a couple days less at each place.

This gives us more time to explore the Idaho Falls area and we have found a couple more restaurants we just have to try.

Till next time,

Bob and Jo


  1. Wow - that is not good. But the campground taking care of everything is the way it should be. Maybe they ought to wait until the rigs have pulled out. If you go up to Rexburg, ID - that's where I went to college a million years ago. You will really get a chance to explore that area.

  2. Wed whacking sites while a unit is in it is a pet peeve of mine. What happened to your rig is why I hate it. We have not had such severe damage, but have had destroyed sewer hoses and chewed up power cords. Glad to hear that they at least stepped up and are paying for the damage.

  3. Are they picking up the tag for your rent too?

  4. Wow! That is NOT good! Great that park is paying....and I agree with comment above--are they giving you a break on rent?
