Jeff, my wife reminds me (being younger than me, she actually still remembers things), there was an Airstream parked to the left of where you are now when we were there in September, but no one was around. From the content of your first post, it seems you've had yours for a shorter time.

Our impression of the RV campground was different than yours. We drove in and saw all these fancy pads, but when we got to the desk were were taken to the back of the building and shown where we would be in the lower area. The grounds were just dirt and uncut weeds, the sewer was a piece of broken off PVC (no threads), TV reception was impossible, and getting into a space was a challenge and the price was double what it was worth. That's why I said it looks better with snow. I'm glad you're having a better experience. We did meet a doctor camped there and he and I talked for a quite a while about the present state of medicine—how often do you ever see a doctor outside of the office?

We did enjoy walking through Park City and had a very good meal at Bistro something. Well, this was also a mixed experience. The food was very good, but a local woman in the next booth was very drunk, very loud, and very boring. If we come back to Park City, we'll probably go to one of the state parks to camp.

Keep us up to date.

persistent plumbing problems


I remember the frustration of trying, with much cussing and gnashing of teeth, to get those brand new fittings on that swollen pipe. Seems like years ago, even though it was just in October. I ended up with a HUGE pile of copper that was eventually sent to the recycling yard by a fellow churchgoer.

One trick that I did learn was to use the clamp portion of a flare tool to bring the pipe back down to the proper size. Be careful not to squeeze too far, as the solder won't fill the gap if too large.

And just like you, I thought I had one hole in a pipe, only to discover another and then another, etc, etc, etc.

I would have to venture to say that you did the right thing by removing all the old copper. Keep up the good work.
