“When the Chips are Down, the Buffalo is Empty”

That was posted somewhere near one of the campgrounds in Montana or N Dakota – thought it was cute.

I don’t think this ‘chip’ had anything to do with a Buffalo :-) but it did happen somewhere on the road through N Dakota.  Seven years of driving all over this country, and this is the first time we got a chip in our windshield!  Then, we got two.  That’s one thing that rallies are really good for – you can find most any kind of RV service/repair people.  We’re here at the pre-rally gathering for the Gypsy Journal rally and Jim flagged down this car that was driving by:

A half hour later the chip was fixed and it didn’t cost us anything.  On The Spot Windshield repair works directly with our insurance company (GMAC) and it was covered.  Sometimes things just fall into place!  Quite an interesting contraption he attaches to the windshield to fix the chip:

Amazing that you went 7 years with out a chip! Those mobile repair guys do a good job...Robert had to have one fixed in Iowa last week and I believe it was someone with a similar business name. Wish I had been the one who invented that procedure! K

I am so glad you were able to get your chip fixed, and on-site at a rally even! Just make sure you know what they are going to charge BEFORE you get your chip fixed. If your insurance doesn't cover it then they may try and bully you into paying for a repair that was supposed to be "free". If you are ever traveling in the northern Utah area and need any of your RV glass repaired or replaced, make sure you call Diamond Glass, they have the best customer service EVER.
