Day 186: Has anyone seen my sewage?

Shabbos here was nice as usual.  Saturday night we played a rousing game of Settlers of Catan, and our daughter was victorious:


On Saturday afternoon, we saw a pair of powered hanggliders fly overhead.  Our daughter built a model:


This morning, we dumped our black water tank, which holds the toilet waste, into our “blue boy”, a 35 gallon wheeled plastic tank used to transport RV waste.  The idea is to save the hassle of packing up and hitching up the RV just to empty the RV’s tank.  Instead, we dump the RV tank into the blue boy and drive it to the dump station.

We set off at 25 MPH towards Borrego Springs.  The plan was to drive the 10 miles or so to the state campground and pay the $8 to use the dump station.  To make a long story short, it seems the wheels aren’t rated for even 25 MPH.  By the time we heard a dragging noise behind our SUV, the wheel hubs had melted and the wheels had disintegrated.  The blue boy was badly damaged and had to be thrown away.

Once in town, we returned books to the library, got gas and fresh water, did laundry, and shopped for groceries. Hopefully tomorrow won’t involve any expensive mistakes like today.
