We spent all day on Tuesday, July 9th, at Interstate Power.
We finally left there at 7:45 p.m. and headed for Buffalo WY, arriving at a little after 9:00 p.m. Guess what? Error messages on the braking system unit in the motorhome... So, the next morning we called Interstate Power to make another appointment....for Friday, the 12th. Oh, well. We were ready for some quiet time anyway.
The next day, Wednesday, July 10th, we took a car trip on the Cloud Peak Skyway (Hwy. 16) as far as the little town of Ten Sleep. What a gorgeous area! It went through the southern portion of the Bighorn National Forest and over 9,666 foot Powder River Pass. There were wildflowers everywhere, incredible scenery and some of the oldest rock we've seen. Apparently the Granite Gneiss in this area is 3 billion years old. Wow.
|Beautiful expansive views!|
|Yellow Columbine in the little town of Ten Sleep|
|Another gorgeous area!|
|Good pull-out to scan for sheep...|
|More really old rocks|
|The lupine were everywhere!|
|Even the thistles are impressive here!|
On Friday, July 12th, we drove the nearly 80 miles back to Interstate Power in Gillette and spent the entire afternoon waiting for them to figure it out. No dice. Even after several consultations with the engineers at Brake Buddy, no one knew what the problem was. So, Brake Buddy agreed to send a new unit to us and we headed on down the road. Guess we'll deal with it later...
So, at 5:30 p.m. we left Gillette. Again.
