Mark has a sister in Ogden, Sharon, who brought us her car to use for a couple of days, and her son, Trevor, is going to help her get around while we have her car. My family has also been helping us, and I also want to thank all of you who have been praying for us. All prayers are gratefully received!
We got Sharon’s car late this afternoon and wanted to go up to the wrecking yard to see if there was anything that we could salvage from the truck. It was dark when we got there, but we have lights on our phones and were able to see what we needed to see. Yesterday, the truck was too hot to get close to, so this is the first close inspection we were able to have of the truck.
Most of the responses I’ve gotten from you all have been asking what started the fire? We only wish we knew! Someone suggested to Mark today that it might have been the cruise control that Ford had to recall because it was causing cars that weren’t even turned on to burn up. However, when I put our VIN # into Ford’s recall page, our truck wasn’t on their list. We are hoping that the insurance claims adjuster will be able to figure out what happened after he has a chance to look at the wreckage.
In the meantime, Mark has found a U-Haul trailer that we can rent for a reasonable price to tow the motorcycle behind the RV to Oregon. We need to get a trailer hitch attached to the rear bumper of the RV in order to do that. Mark is going to do that tomorrow, and then we have an appointment in the afternoon to pick up the trailer. That would hopefully put us back on the road by Monday after we talk with the adjuster.
