2013 Crossmen Protest Tour
Day 41, Tuesday, July 23th
Show Day- Lake Highlands High School
Housing- Southlake Carroll HS
The offending broken bracket.The morning started out calm and peaceful as the routine of wake, stretch and run followed by breakfast and the quiet of the early hours ticked by. After grabbing my morning black coffee and bowl of raisin bran and making my way back to the mobile office I happened to look up and see that something was awry. The awning that covers the rear slide when it is open in order to keep out the weather has a broken bracket. The awning was dangling only supported by the fabric and the front bracket. We couldn't go down the road like this. Joe and I took down the awning and slid the fabric out of its groove. Joel and Eddie placed the assembly inside the RV so that we could take it to one of the American Dream locations in Clebourne about 40 miles away. My contacts in the Bourne location near home called them and asked them to help us get things back together. Joel and I hustled to pack up the RV drop the trailer and make the hour trip to the shop. While there the good folks said that we could make use of their beach chairs in their display while we waited for George in the shop to get our truck back together. Joel picked the beach umbrella and the beach towel to pass the time. The folks at the shop were so tickled by the scene that they took photos for the the shop wall. The work was completed in under two hours and we made our way back to the housing site with plenty of time to spare. EPL went well in spite of the oppressive heat and off we went to Lake Highlands. The show was well received by our last Texas audience and their applause and standing ovation was a send off of sorts. Well wishes for their team for the rest of our journey together. Many thanks to our hosts at Southlake Carroll. You have been great hosts for both of our stays. We look forward to our return some day. Joel soaking up the florescents at the American Dream Vacation Shop floor beach. Good as new awning bracket.
