Adventures of Wyoming – Part II

We left Rawlins, WY later than expected this morning so decided we should seriously consider another night in Wyoming but also wanted to find a place that would let us have water. The place in Rawlins did not so decided we’d only go a short ways to Rocksprings, WY. The GPS said we’d get there by 1:00. It’s only 111 miles so you can see just how late we were leaving Rawlins.

About 50 miles down the road we started hearing a new noise! EEK! Sounded like the driver’s side front wheel was about to come off and then a big noise and the steering was odd and I felt like we’d had a flat. Limped to the nearest off ramp but stayed on the off ramp to stop.

Not flat but the front wheel was hot and smelled bad. Called Good Sam. Took three tries to get a complete transaction as the cell coverage was poor. Fellow was sweet but it was over 2 hours before he found a place that could service the RV and a company that would tow. It would be four hours, yup 4 as in 1,2,3,4 hours before the tow would arrive! We decided to limp into Rocksprings. We arrived in Rocksprings about 4:30. It was nerve wracking and exhausting but no trouble as we went fairly slow.

RV is now sitting at the place that will check it out tomorrow and we are at a motel. We recognize we will be here for two nights at least as even the best scenario won’t see any repairs done until too late to start for Jessi and Brandon’s.

As we think about it, Glen and I feel it maybe a wheel bearing but when I was parking it at the repair shop we noticed it makes terrible noises when backing. Dear me! The adventures of Wyoming continue and we haven’t even had any real fun!

  1. Oh dear, I’m going to start praying for competent mechanics!!! Gosh I hope it’s not a bearing. Are you at and RV service center? Well, think of it this way. Nice change to be in a motel room. You can stretch a little. Blessings on you my dear!
