A Little Rain and A Job Delayed . . .

We woke up this morning to more of the gentle rain that started last night, and brought some cooler temps with it. But some hot coffee and a warm muffin fixed things right up.

I called our friend Nick Russell about 11 to check in and see how Miss Terry was feeling. He’d mentioned in his blog she’d been under the weather, but he said she was feeling better now. We also talked some about our respective upcoming travels.

About noon Jan heated up our leftover Italian from last night’s meal at Tomato Street. And just like Mexican leftovers, Italian also gets better with age.

By 1 pm I was ready to finish up my transfer switch project by installing the receptacles on the generator output so I can plug it in when we need it.

But things quickly came to a screeching halt when I discovered that I did not have the correct parts. I guess when I pulled all four out of the bin I got two that were in the wrong bin. Hopefully I will be able to find the correct parts locally this afternoon and finish up tomorrow.

Brandi called about 3 pm to check in and give us the latest Landon update. Landon will be 11 months old in a week, and we’ll see them at the family reunion in IL in about a month. Yeaaa!

About 4 Jan and I headed into Newport to check out the True Value Hardware to see if they had the parts I need, and they did. So I’ll finish up tomorrow morning.

Then it was off for another visit to Rancho Alegre where we ate a couple of nights ago. It was really good, and we wanted to try it again before we leave on Friday.

This time I just had a big bowl of the Chicken Tortilla Soup, and also got a bowl to go. Jan had a two enchilada, one chili rellano plate and she also also had leftovers. This was the best Mexican we’ve had in a good while, and we’re going to miss it.

Rancho Alegre Dessert

They give you a free dessert after your meal, Buñuelos with honey and whipped cream, and a strawberry topping. The perfect finish.

On the way home we stopped off at an Exxon station to scout it out to fill up with diesel on our way out of town on Friday morning. We’re only down to half a tank, but we’re going traveling thru the wilds of Montana and Wyoming for a while, and I don’t want worry about getting diesel in the middle of nowhere.

When we got back to the rig about 6 to find a note taped to our coach telling us there was a water line break, and water would be off until tomorrow morning. But when I checked at the outside faucet a little later while washing the bugs off the windshield, it seems to be working OK.


Thought for the Day:

Trust in God. Question everything else.

  1. Hey, Greg.

    Montana and Wyoming are beautiful states. You don’t have to worry about being chased down by bandits. They even have gas stations and truck stops. In fact at the intersection of I-90 and I-15 just west of Butte there are two truck stops. There is a Pilot on the south side of I-90 and a Flying J on the north side.

  2. Yes, but we’re not on the Interstate.

    Because we’ve done I-90 several times, this time we’re taking US-2, and when I look at the map thru Montana I see pretty much nothing from the Idaho/Montana border to Kalispell, just miles and miles of miles and miles thru the Kootenai National Forest. In fact it looks there is over a hundred miles thru the Forest with no towns whatsoever, much less truck stops.

    As far as bandits, I think I can outrun their horses.

    Thanks for reading the blog.
