Another travel day and our traveling cat Lucky was ready to GO, even though we woke to a light sleet.
The trip turned eventful. We still have two of those lousy tires that came on the Montana. CHEAP CHEAP CHEAP. We stopped at a rest area where another RVer told us our back right tire on the fiver was bouncing. Len checked and saw it had a bubble. We decided we would get two more new tires when we got to Tucumcari. The tire had other ideas. About 20 more miles more up the road and the Pressure Pro let us know the tire was giving up the ghost.
We no sooner were on the road again and the Check Engine light came on. Now, some of you know we have had to have the engine oil cooler coil replaced three times. The second time Ford completely replaced the engine, radiator, hoses, etc. We are sweating it. It is happening again???
We got to Tucumcari and found the Ford dealer.
Don't think they can help. Closest Ford dealer is in Amarillo, TX 115 miles up the road. Well, here is hoping nothing happens until Thursday when we will get to Amarillo and have our truck checked out.
We found a tire dealer who has to order the tires we want. They should arrive tomorrow morning. We will replace both of the orignial tires still on our rig.
We are on:
One can only imagine what these towns were when Rt 66 was the Mother Road. The town we left yesterday, Milan and the neighboring town Grants are really hard hit. In a 4 mile span Len and I counted 64 business that were boarded up. Tucumcari does not appear as bad, but we still see lots of closures.
Here is the park we are staying for two nights. Nothing fancy but is does have free WIFI and Cable. This makes us both happy.
And a place for vehicles on Rt 66, that like Rt 66, that have seen better days.
The answer the question about my new camera. It is nothing fancy nor expensive. Only a Kodak easyshare M532. It does the job.
