When leaving Seward, we packed up in the rain and while hitching up, the landing gear of the 5'er broke. Time to face one of my biggest worries. Landing gear and Slideout issues can really ruin your day. Fortunately, I researched how to repair Landing gear issues and even bought some spare parts in case of this emergency which in this case happened to be shear pins. I was glad I had this part with me and fixed the problem quickly.
We timed it right and on Thursday when arrived, we were the only people in the entire campground of 190 sites. Made for some nice walks in solitude along the paths and walkways along the river. It was quite relaxing sitting along the banks listening to the water flowing over the rocks in the river. We never did see any bears but several times we saw Eagles flying along the river looking for fish.
The weather has been kind of off lately but at least we had one nice day where we got a couple long walks in and were able to leave the windows open for a bit. Our last night, heavy rain returned which was good considering the massive fires not too far from here. It was quite cold and while filling our fresh water tanks we could see a lot of fresh snow on the trees a couple thousand feet up the mountains from us.
