We ran too hard yesterday, Athena and I were both ill from being tired. On our trip home last night, we had trouble on the freeway, someone while we were parked disconnected the hooks on the tow bar assembly, they got loose under the car and made a lot of noise. We flipped our flashers on and attempted to get off the freeway, the guy behind us began honking and getting very angry as Athena slowed to attempt to get off the freeway, in spite of the other drivers she was able to get over. I did the investigation, figured out what happened and made the necessary repairs. We got back here just before mid night. I took the time today to sleep in until 8am, add a book shelf to the wall on the drivers side of the coach, re-located the emergency brake switch, repair the outside door swing arm, organize the kids movies, and reorganize the outside holds on the rv, then read the drivers manual Randy gave me. I noticed Oregon has criminalized most every violation, it is a wonder there is room in our jails.  Oregon now has a law on the books that allows jail time for littering. I think the punishment of picking up litter like Singapore does, is more fitting.

Athena made a killer pizza today, the kids went swimming, Sarah was walking on water until she looked down. Other than that not much happened in Pantekoek land today.

Good night.
