We had a great morning at Hoover Dam. It is an amazing site. There's enough concrete in the dam to build a 4ft. wide sidewalk around the equator of the earth. And it weighs about the same as 18 Empire St. Buildings!
From Hoover, we headed N. on Interestate 15 towards the Grand Canyon. We made it over this steep grade and began going down into St. George, UT. Coming down, I lost power and couldn't accelerate. I was losing speed and was able to coast down far enough to reach a safe spot to pull over. It was a bit scary, as I had to get over and cut off a semi to do it. Kids jumped into action, were buckled up, and took it as well as I could.
We got a tow to St. George, only about 6 miles. Looks like it's the fuel pump, and we hope to be on the road tomorrow. The good news is it happened going down the grade and not up. The tow truck came right away, the guys at the shop were very nice, the Days Inn only cost $50, AND there's a Denny's across the street to boot! We'll post pictures tomorrow, as my camera is locked in the RV at the shop.
My take is this was bound to happen and now it has. Should be smooth sailing from here on out!
Okay, off to dinner at Denny's. Then we all get a clean shower. Also a bonus!
