Yea, new steps!

Before leaving Baker City, we stopped by Sumpter Junction for breakfast.  We both had their special with German sausage and new potatoes...yum!
Then in was on to Thunder RV in La Grande where we had the new steps installed that we'd ordered last week (actually, only the bracket was installed, since the steps are removable).  We bought the Torklift 5-step Glow Step,  While we had a folding step stool to help with the step from the ground to the bumper, the step from the bumper up into the camper was a big one and wasn't doing my hip any good, so we decided to pay the money to get the steps. 
While we were at the dealers, we had them fix a couple of small things we'd noticed: one of the rails on the slide needed to be tightened up (although it hadn't caused any problems) and one of the interior decorative pieces was coming loose, so it was reattached.
After we got through at the dealer's, we went to the Wal-Mart next door to do grocery shopping and then went by the storage yard to get some things from the fifth wheel (since Earl now has an annual Idaho fishing license, he wanted to pick up the waders he'd bought last year and has yet to use).
We're spending a couple of days out at Hilgard Junction State Park waiting for our mail to come, and the new steps are really nice!
