They can't replace the burned-out motor but they can raise the window so that we'll be watertight and secure for the rest of the trip and I can get a permanent fix.
We never over-plan a trip and we've been having a few impulse side trips along the way. The most interesting so far was a two hour canal cruise at Lockport, New York, site of the first five locks of the historic Erie Canal. We've also been to two of our four Frank Lloyd Wright houses, both of which are undergoing extensive restoration after having been almopst demolished due to years of neglect, even abandonment.
Tonight we have dinner with cousins of mine just north of Pittsburgh and then we head south to spend the night in Uniontown, Pennsylvania for our tours of Wright's most famous house, Fallingwater and the smaller, very different KLentuck Knob.
With luck we won't have any more car trouble as we begin the loop back home.
jvb: glad you're back--I'll catch up with your new blog ASAP now that I'm back.
Karl: Yes, I had a major repair done just before we left as I didn't want to be going through the mid-Atlantic states without it during the onset of Global Warming.
