HOME AGAIN CAMP 8.5
Our first week back at the farm was a blur of one appointment or another for various reasons. I am very pleased to say that all the medical reports came back good.
Other meetings and appointments were also good.
It took them 10 days to refinish the trailer from the scrape, and to find the electrical problem.
The turn signal turned out to be that at some point when someone had worked on the wiring they had wired a ground wire in with others where it shouldn’t have been and two loose connectors. Why anyone would wire it like that none of us know. But between that, the loose connectors the bumpy roads were definitely causing shorts and blowing the fuses.
Since we had purchased the trailer there, they had done all work on it and the loosing of the connectors could have been due to the bump received on their lot we were only charged a small fee for the work AND they fixed for free the hot water tank that had worked loose from the wall. So that went well as well.
Other happy news was by spending long hours in the heat outside and talking calmly to the terrified cat he is back in the house after nearly two months. It was worth every bit of the time I spent doing so just to see him and Gypsy curled up together on the sofa safe and sound.
Granted he is minus some fur due to stress and allergies, and he has definitely lost weight. But my baby boy is home safe and sound.

After, as you can see he has a lot of fur to grow back, but I have faith it will.
Once we got back the trailer back we stayed in the area for a short while to help our son with some things, and to also finish up the retraining of the skittish cat.
The last 7 nights we stayed at Tulsa RV Ranch which is less than 15 miles from the farm.
All in all the visit home was good, but we were anxious to get back on the road and get away from OK.
