Our appointment at Camping World was at 1:00 pm. We were awakened early by a knock on the door, because the techs were supposedly ready to start. But after we got up and got dressed and went in, it still took them almost two hours before they even looked at Bella.
When the tech, Craig, inspected Bella, he told us that the electrical system is connected all wrong and it may take a couple of days to get it fixed. It is pretty cold here and we didn’t see the point in trying to juggle sleeping in their parking lot for a couple of nights so this time we decided to take CW up on their previous offer to put us up in a hotel.
The closest hotel is 25 minutes from the store so they had an employee drive us to the hotel. We are now in a Holiday Inn Express in Brockport NY and we have no transportation. We walked in the snow to the closest strip mall, which was only about a ten minute walk but in the cold it felt like miles.
The two employees at the front desk were so very nice to us. One offered us her winter coat before we went on our walk and the other one gave us her cell phone number so we could call her if the weather got suddenly worse and we got stuck somewhere.
We went to the restaurant the hotel had recommended. We found the food to be pretty bland and we were not too happy with it. But it was warm and it got us out of the hotel, so you can’t win them all.
After looking in a couple of stores we headed back to the hotel where we worked on our laptops and watched tv. For people who don’t get to watch tv we sure have had plenty of time lately to catch up with our favorite shows. I guess that’s what you do when it’s too cold to do anything else. With this extra time on our hands, Bernie decided to highlight her hair, so she has a new look.
