Bert's Mobile RV Repair

Aloha Everyone,

After 3 months of life on the road, including some gravel mountain roads in the Manti-La Sal National Forest, Honu was having problems with loose screws, loose paneling, and worst of all, one of the kitchen drawers would not retract.

Bert Warner of Bert's RV Service responded to our call. Bert met us just off I-15 North in South Jordan in front of where a new Holiday Inn Express was under construction.

Bert must have been over 6' tall as his head touched the ceiling. Here he is replacing a screw of one of the LED lights.

After 1 1/2 hours, Bert completed his work and Honu is almost as good as new. Bert did an excellent job and  his charge was reasonable.

We are now in the county of Box Elder, Utah. Wasatch Cache National Forest is East of us.

After driving through Provo and Salt Lake City where the sky was gray with pollution from industry, J.J. and I found ourselves again out in the wide country with farms, mountains and blue sky.

Our destination was Golden Spike National Monument located on the way to Premonition Mountains in the northern section of Great Salt Lake. Somehow we missed our turn off and by the time we realized our error, we were only 22 miles from the border to Idaho.

Our decision was to turn back. Tonight we are staying at Golden Spike RV Park. This is one of more upscale RV parks we've stayed in terms of facilities.

The Main Street of Brigham is lined with tall verdant trees adding another layer to this charming rural community.

We believe that the building on the right is the City Hall.

J.J. and I spent a couple of hours catching up with our readings in this shaded picnic area.

Our relaxing hour was interrupted when this very large, resident feline tried to jump on top of the table we were sitting. Some of you may know that I am extremely allergic to cats and dogs.
