NEAR Rally

.It was hot in Vermont today.  Mid-90s most of the day.  And, of course, our Air Conditioner went out a couple days ago.  Luckily, in this new rig, there are two A/C units - one in front and one in the bedroom.  So, we could keep it bearable.  Actually, since we're plugged in to 30Amp power, we could only run one A/C unit anyway.
Since we're at a rally, there are reputable RV Repair people right on site, so it didn't take long for them to come over, check it out, get the necessary part - a new capacitor - and install it.  $211 and we have our front A/C working again.
We were also inside most all day.  Here's our booth in the vendor area at the NEAR Rally:

Then we taught our Google Earth Seminar to a good crowd.


And ended the day with our new hands-on Picasa photo editing workshop.  I always think of some tweaking to do after teaching any class, but all in all, it went pretty well.  I think we'll keep this in our repertoire!  We're teaching it again  here on Sunday, then we'll also be teaching it twice at the upcoming FMCA Convention in Madison, Wisconsin.

Getting the AC fixed was for our comfort. We also had our Blue Ox tow bar serviced. That was for our safety! Rallies are great for getting things done.

Well that is far from a reasonable price to replace a capacitor!
