Known more commonly as Wyoming, the state qualifies for renaming. Since my arrival a week ago, the wind starts early morning and continues all day until sundown. Yesterday was worse than the usual expected winds. Blowing about 30 MPH constantly with gusts at 50 MPH, it wasn't a day for exploring. Staying at home and doing tasks including laundry filled the day light hours. Took till nine last evening before the winds died down.
My home was rocking for the entire day. Considered Dramamine. At times, I was wondering what my escape plan would be if Wandrin Wagon was blown on its side. There is a scary thought. Considering the direction of the wind, which window would I have to use as an exit since the door would be on the down side.
With that on my mind, I wondered what my home and contents coverage was in the event of such an event. Called GEICO insurance to get the answers. With depreciated value of Wandrin Wagon and contents, I made the swift calculation that I would have enough money to replace the loss with a pop up tent trailer. :-)
Time to get out of this windy place. Silver Slug is out of the hospital after the transmission transplant. One more day of exploring with the new transmission before heading north to the Tetons and Jackson Wyoming. And away from the wind.
