I spent this morning finishing up a few chores around the rig before we head out..
First up, I installed the replacement TireTraker sensor that Daryl and Cheri Lawrence had given me. Because it was a new one, I had to delete the old one from the monitor first, but it only took a few minutes and I was back in business.
Next I finished repairing the fold-down arm on my driver’s chair. The wooden frame inside had broken so I had to remove the arm from the chair, peel off the cover and the foam inside, and then repair and re-glue the wooden frame. Then I used spray adhesive to reattach the foam to the frame, and then replaced the cover. Then after everything had dried, I reinstalled the arm on the chair.
After taking care of a few more things to get ready to travel tomorrow, Jan and I drove into town to grab lunch at McDonalds, and then to pick up a few things at Wal-Mart.
About 5pm Nick and Terry, and Jan and I headed back into town to have our last meal together for a while. We decided to check out the local Applebee’s.
We’ve always enjoyed them, and this time was no exception. But as usual we spent more time talking then eating, trying to see how our schedules match up for the next year. It’s possible that we won’t see them again until next February or March. I imagine Nick will have accumulated a nice long list of repairs by then.
Getting back to the rig, I went ahead and pulled the truck behind the rig and got it hitched up and to roll tomorrow morning. And at the same time I got pretty much everything else loaded up too.
It’s going to be interesting to see how easy it will be to get out of here tomorrow. It rained pretty heavily last night, and it’s rained again tonight. In fact it’s raining right now.
Tomorrow we heading about 250 miles east to the East Belvidere SD KOA for the night before traveling on to Sioux Falls on Tuesday, where we’ll get our SD drivers licenses renewed.
That’s assuming we’re not stuck in the mud tomorrow morning.
Thought for the Day:
We should not fear our government. Our government should fear us.
