Today started out as a work/chores morning with me working on computer/website stuff, while Jan drove down to the park laundry to do some rugs and a quilt that are a little too big for our rig washer.
Lowell sent over some Landon Easter pics. It’s amazing how much he seems to have grown in just the couple of months since we last saw him.
Later in the afternoon I worked on repairing a couple of cables, one was the power cord to my Winegard Carryout Satellite Dish,
There was a locking pin on the 12v power connector where it plugs into the dish that is supposed to keep it from accidently coming loose. But instead it makes it very difficult to get it loose when we stow it away for travel. So a little quick work with a pair of needle-nose pliers took care of the pin.
Next up, I resoldered a loose wire on the cable for the Remote Alert System for my BrakeBuddy Braking System.
This is what provides the auxiliary braking for our pickup when it’s being towed behind the RV. The Remote Alert lets me know that the BrakeBuddy is activating properly when we’re on the road.
The rest of the afternoon I mostly puttered without really accomplishing a lot, but it was fun.
Then Nick and Terry Russell showed up a little after 5pm and we all headed out for supper at a local Mexican place called Los Gringos Locos (Crazy White People?). Although our waitress was a little hit or miss, the place was busy, the food was good and, as usual, the conversation was a big part of the evening.
Leaving the restaurant, Nick drove us out of town toward Tortilla Flats for a little ways to check out the RV parking at the local Elks lodge, and get a good view of Superstition Mountain, the fabled home of the Lost Dutchman Mine.
Tomorrow, probably more of the same.
Thought for the Day:
My first flight lesson was "Avoid the edges of the sky, rocks live in clouds, and hit the softest, cheapest thing around, going as slowly as possible."
That and preflight.
