Wow - hitting a deer sounds like a minor issue compared to rock
climbing a motorhome. Since my wife insists on a nice river-view
room the Best Western is $350-400 per night. This might make you
feel better about the $2,300.
Also in the "feel better" category. instead of thinking about
when to go to Maui I just ordered a heating element for my
Rinsekit portable shower since I'll be chasing local Winter
And since you're winging you can use a small vehicle when

It’s been a grand day .
I’m currently at a truck stop waiting for the heat to
dissipate before limping home , radiator cap off , several
gallons of distilled water at ready hand .
I avoided a significant accident on I 5 by swerving the
motorhome abruptly to the right stearing in and out of crash
debris . I felt like I was in Mad Max.
Now I’m almost afraid to hit the road .

I going down tomorrow in my Mazda with my wife and
staying at the Best Western. Just one night; a session on
Friday and one on Saturday before heading home. Wing gear,
including board, fits easily in my little CX-5, but I miss
my wounded van.
Congrats on the winging progress. When I started I was
worried that standing up from kneeling would be hard on my
knees, but it hasn't been a problem. I've convinced myself
that slow, but sure, progress is probably more rewarding
than being instantly good. Not that I was given a choice.

I learned a lot over my three days at Hood River.
Finally got up on foil under the wing. I had my last
session today and I learned that my method of getting up
on the board doesn’t work in the gusts and swells of the
Columbia gorge. On Kootenay Lake I would just stand up
on the board quickly pull the wing off the water a take
off. Doesn’t work here. I spent an hour getting dumped
before I started kneeling, getting some momentum and
then standing up. My legs are so sore right now but I
finally was able to get up consistently in the swells
and chop. Small steps.
Sorry to here about your vehicle, Don.
Condolences to the deer.
