Overview

We had a few mishaps on this trip. When we arrived, the Jeep’s battery was dead and the check engine light was on. We were afraid we would have to drive the motor home back into town for a battery, but Nick dug around and found jumper cables so he managed to jumpstart the Jeep and we were able to get setup. We continued to have issues and had to get a charger to keep the Jeep charged between trips. On the trip between Hunting Island and MB, we noticed the camper making a rubbing noise. At first we thought maybe it was due to all the rain. Upon return home and having everything checked out, we ended up getting a new battery for the Jeep and new brakes for the motor home. Final bummer was the loss of the diamond in my engagement ring. Just happened to notice it was missing as we sat around the campfire on our last night. No clue where or when it happened. 🤷🏻‍♀️

On the positive side, we had good company despite all the rain. The Hineses joined us for sightseeing, shopping, dining, games, laughs around the campfire.
