As it turns out, I had a fulltimer friend who was also having service on both of his Schwintek slideouts AND needed to get a rack from Lippert. After harrassing and a bit of cajoling, he was able to get his parts there a couple of hours after I got there. I sat in the lobby and worked a bit:

Before too long, I got the word that the truck had arrived, they processed paperwork, and were ready for me. I got the boxes loaded up, tarped, and secured:

I drove past Notre Dame on my way out. It made me think of some kind named Rudy or something.

I checked on my parcel regularly:

I'm a little proud to say that securing loads in the truck bed is one of the things that scares me more than anything. The 2 boxes and tarps made the 600 mile return trip without issue.

Somehow I timed my lunch stop at the same time as FOUR tour buses. The lines at the food counters were insane- easily 30+ people deep! I decided to skip the fast food and instead opted for a mashed pre-made sub and a couple of snacks.

I left Lippert shortly after noon and arrived back in Pennsylvania around 9:20pm. My buddy showed up a little later for his box and I drop mine off at the service center this morning.

I'm hopeful that by this time next week, I'm not homeless any longer!
