Friday  -  August 7, 2009

This past weekend was quite busy so I did not have time to write a daily journal, therefore this is being written after the fact.  We started this trip on Friday, August 7th departing home at 11:00 am and heading west on the Pennsylvania Turnpike for approximately 65 miles with our destination being Spring Gulch Resort Campground in New Holland, PA.

Joining us on this trip were our friends Ken & Peg…..in fact this was their very first time to go camping and they were doing it with their brand new 32 foot Jayco travel trailer.   When they were setting up at the camp site I could hear a loud bang.  When they were extending the electric awning something failed and the awning unfurled.  Ken called the Carefree Awning Company and they suggested to tie up the awning and take the travel trailer back to the dealer for repair.  Ken & I disassembled the awning and discovered a gear in the motor had broken into 3 pieces.  We could have easily made the repair but did not have any way of obtaining the replacement part.
