Where are we today ?
Today is a beautiful bright sunny day and lots more rigs pulling in all day long. Not a lot happening here that we want to do as most stuff begins on friday. So we took this chance to read over all the info and grab Rob and Pat taking them for a drive to the "World Famous Daytona Beach".
As luck would have it was an awesome day and tide was low enough to drive along the beach. So cruise the beach we did, not real busy but thats just fine with us.
Only a few miles from the race track so just have to go there. And first we do the obligatory pictures of us standing on the beach at surfs edge.

|lotsa joggers on the beach too|
These guys are surf fishing and looks like one has something on his line. So we just have to stop and watch him. Just because we could.
A few minutes later he had landed a small shark! So quickly he was released and sent back out into to surf and back home where he belongs. While this was going on a small crowd had gathered including us and we did manage a few pictures of this vicious looking creature.

So I removed the bikes and bike rack and took it down to their service truck. We have it cleaned and inspected every year at their truck in Quartzsite and took advantage of their service here to get it repaired. The parts are much cheaper here at these events and the labor is free. Also performed by actual factory technicians.

he lives on Oregon not far from the factory

We needed a new draw bar (thats not what they called it, I just forgot the name) and bushings, a few new washers, got it working smoother and clean up the rest of the bar. I knew it was wearing as it was getting sloppy and was advised last winter to keep and eye on it. So 30 minutes later it was good as new paid our tab (about 1/2 of the coast of having repaired at an rv dealer). Gotta love the customer service we have had from them over the six plus years we have been towing fulltime with their product.

Great weather, a fun day and no supper tonight after a wonderful lunch out with our friends.
