Ah, that is just so terrible! Are they going to get started on it before you get home? At least get it dried out?

Good thing you've got the Airstream. Do you have 30 amps in the driveway?

shutting off water

My security system has water sensors all over the house. under all the sinks, toilets, water heater, tubs/showers. any of them get wet the security system shuts the water off. I have a manual and electric water valve.

Bummer! Glad to hear your daughter was there to catch it.

You'll have new floors! That's good. Maybe you can match floors in the house with the Tradewind. I'd look for something besides Pergo. They used to be the leader, but no longer. We used an Armstrong product in our house (interlocking) and Karndean loose lay in the trailer. If you are not too anxious to get home and do stop here, I can show you how they look.

I worry about that happening, but in the summer we have to leave the water on because of the drip irrigation. Without it, trees and bushes get very unhappy in this climate. In the winter the heating and hot water solar systems need water pressure so water stays on. A neighbor checks every 2 days or sooner. Two times there have been problems, but that had to do with a system failure and no water. Each was simple to fix, but it causes anxiety while traveling.

We feel your pain from flooding...we lived in our Bambi for 4 months when our home flooded from a frozen pipe in the ceiling over New Year's (when we were at a 4CU New Year's Rally having the time of our lives)...

Hope your situation is resolved soon and without hassle... Bummer for this to happen...I guess that's what insurance is for...sure glad ours was good! Hope yours is, too!

Is picking new flooring an option versus having what was there replicated? If you can pick what you want, and do it via internet, the place could be done by the time you get home to do final inspection. Or if they are simply replacing what you had, they can do that too quite quickly, or at least we can in our area. These restoration companies do pretty decent work I'm told.

The upside is that your daughter was there to catch this whereas Terry and Greg walked in to a big surprise. Or should that be BIG.

The company working in the house is just getting things dry. Tney will report to the insurance company and they will then send out an adjuster. We will not have any work started until after we get home on around the first of August.

We are still enjoying our time in New Jersey, but plan on heading west tomorrow. The next stop will be a little town in Ohio called Jackson Center.

Hobo's is closed (in Jackson Center) but the bar a little farther up the street - same block - serves a great breakfast and has fresh pies almost every day.

New Jersey is behind us now. After a nice breakfast we hit the road and are spending the night at Shawnee State Park in Shellsburg, PA. So far this trip we have spent around $50 on tolls, but only in PA. For that kind of money you would expect a better quality ride!

Richard, sounds like you're on the Pa. Turnpike. The western part is older than you or me, and you know how we are a bit worn.

If you want a really bad ride, try the W.Va. Turnpike, where you are shaken, not stirred.

If you have time, you are not far from Mill Run, Pa., where Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water is located. One of the most famous houses in the world, it is quite for sight for architecture fans. You could leave the trailer at an RV park near the turnpike, drive south to Mill Run and Falling Water. Winding, narrow roads to the house, but doable if you can park it there.

Spent the day dodging storms on I70 today. We are just north of Columbus Ohio at Alum Creek State Park and it is raining.

In 2008 we were dodging severe thunderstorms and tornados from eastern Indiana to Colorado for 2 days after we visited JC. We didn't have the trailer on that trip and there were times we were going about 80 to avoid tornados that were aiming at I-70 in Kansas. That was some trip. Hope it is better for you.

When we travel, we usually try to stay in state parks whenever we can. In my experience, Ohio state parks have been top notch. Looks like you're closing in on JC. Have fun at the mother ship.

On this trip we have stayed in many state parks. This was the first one that was part of Passport America. Some gave discounts with the Senior Card, but most do not.

They have all been top notch and better then most of the private parks we have been in. We have been getting electric sites because of the heat.
