Repair time

In Thousand Trails Verde Valley
Happy 10-10-10!

Tomorrow we take the pickup in to repair the body damage from the hail storm. Happily our insurance not only covers the repair but also the rental car we will need while they are fixing it. So far working with our insurance company has been really great. They have been quick and right on top of everything. We will take the trailer in to get checked over once we get the pickup back. It looks okay but the rubber coating on the roof is dented and we want it checked just in case. The tail lights and one roof vent are toast so we’ll get those fixed.

The last few days have been beautiful, warm afternoons and cool nights. A lot of RV’s came in yesterday and today so the park is filling up. Snowbirds heading south..

Dave and I bought Kindle’s a couple weeks ago and are really enjoying them. They have a couple free unscramble-the-word games that I downloaded and a number of free books too. It’s quite handy to be able to carry around a few books in one little electronic reader. No more having to tote around a bunch of paperbacks in the trailer!

A few people wanted to see the damage to the pickup...kinda hard to get the dents to show up in a photo but here ya go :

Hood and fender, kinda hard to get them all to show up in a photo, but you get the idea

The body shop circled some of the dents

Some more circled by the body shop

that was quite the hail storm..I am sure you aren't the only ones that will be getting a vehicle fixed.

Hi! You are many damaged cars. One reason we moved as quickly as we could was knowing the repair shops would fill up fast!

Yikes! I hope the repairs went smoothly. The size of that hail is scary!

So far, so good on the repairs. We checked on the pickup Friday and it's going well. Probably will be ready next week...yea!!
