Hillbilly camper rack
Annie is back in the shop this morning. We were really lucky on her problems and issues yesterday. The bill will definitely come in less than $500 and not near $2000 as we feared. The big oil leak was not a front motor seal as we feared but valve cover gaskets instead. The bill for that repair will only be $200 as opposed to as much as $1000 to replace the front seal on a 454 cubic inch engine. Ditto the brakes. We feared we were going to need a new booster assembly but it turned out to be a simple adjustment of the rear shoes. Whew!
Our day took an interesting turn Tuesday when we drove out to the Sand Creek Golf Course and the place was locked up tight with nobody in sight. We learned it was closed for "scheduled maintenance" but we rubes had no clue of such a thing. Meanwhile, America's Best called and told Susun her new eyeglasses were "in." So, we headed down to Pokey, as it is affectionately known here, to pick them up. We squeezed in a visit to Pokey Deseret Industries and a local gun shop as well. After returning some, we commenced to set up our Hillbilly rig above and barely had time to log another session on the treadmill before Happy Hour arrived.
All-in-all, a busy day.
The 23rd Annual Verde River Day was held last Saturday. We will talk more about that in a blog post soon. You can click here for the story and 46 photos. Ironically, out of the 46 pictures, the photographer only took 3 or 4 of the river. Typical.
