We have been keeping so busy that I am two days behind in posting. I think I will now have a little time to catch up.
We left Fossil by mid morning and worked our way to Hood River, OR on our way to home. About five miles after leaving Hood River on Interstate 84, our van gave up moving! Susan steered us to the (rather narrow) shoulder and we tried to assess any obvious problem -- oil check was ok, water level was ok, we had just filled up with gas, no wires appeared loose. Nothing obvious that we could see.
Called triple A and have been towed to the Ford Dealership in Gershwin, OR which is an outskirt of Portland. We are in a motel and will see what the service department comes up with!
Now that we are settled in, I will work on updating so this will certainly be out of order.
