Since we arrived at Rock Creek RV Park we have been walking every morning about 4 miles around the park trails.  So far we have walked about 12 miles.  We're trying to get our feet and legs used to that much walking every day as we will probably be walking 4-5 miles a day while we are at in Campbellsville, KY starting in October.  We have done a lot of bike riding the past few months, but that does not prepare one for being on one's feet 10 hours a day, 4 days a week, and walking 4-5 miles each of those days.  

After our walk Elaine got our dirty laundry together and we drove into town to do the laundry.  After helping her carry in the laundry into the laundromat, and then I headed off on a couple of errands.  First I wanted to try to find a grease cap for the trailer wheel.  As you will remember the one Big O Tires got for me was too big, and is currently taped on.  Well, all the auto parts stores carry is the 2.5" outer diameter cap, and I need one about 2.44".  I've found the part on line that is exactly like mine made by TruRyde (they also make the electric brakes on my trailer), and I can get that online at, but I would like to pick up one locally, so I'll visit a couple of trailer supply places in the next couple of days to see if I can find the elusive grease cap.

The TruRyde grease cap that I need!

Next on the list was Lowe's where I wanted to get some small eye hooks and some clear urethane spray for a project I picked up at a local thrift store.....a Merry Christmas plaque.  When we are in Campbellsville  I will hang this on the front of the coach using the small eyelet hooks, and since it was only painted and not sealed, I wanted the urethane to put a coat on both sides to protect the paint from the weather.  Came out real nice, and Christmas will be here before we know it.

I mentioned yesterday that I took off the trailer fender and straightened it out, but forgot to post a picture of it, so here it is.  Looks pretty good.  You can still see the damage, but it is much straighter, and fits flush against the trailer side again.

On our way back we checked out a city owned RV dump station, which was supposed to be a few blocks from Rock Creek on Washington, and sure enough it is there, and it is free, so that will be our first stop Monday morning when we depart Twin Falls for the eastern regions.

I took care of a few insurance customers this afternoon.  Tomorrow some more site seeing....maybe even some kayaking!

Thanks for stopping by!
