So my poor parents had a bit of extra adventure tacked onto the end of their vacation last week. On nearly the last day of their trip, the RV wouldn't start. Thankfully they've got 5th wheel insurance, which towed the beast to a repair shop. My mom headed home (since she's not retired yet and her office expected her back after vacation) and my dad waited for the motorhome to be fixed. And waited. And waited. Then he waited one more day for a vital part they needed to order.
Finally, I talked to him today and he's on the road on his way home! He was really amused when the shop called him and said they'd forgotten to write down the mileage and wanted him to drive back. The joke was on them - he was already a couple states away! Maybe they'll be more careful not to forget something important to them in the future ;)
