But, it could have been worse. We could have been in the middle of nowhere; we could have had an accident (one deer narrowly missed us the other night); and any other scenario you can think of that is not good. We are just trying to make lemonade out of our pile of lemons.
Long story short, the moho engine has an ‘owie.’ A serious owie. Hopefully all of the parts for an “inframe overhaul” (whatever that is, but Dick sez that is what it needs), consisting of a new head and turbo, plus an exhaust manifold, will be here tomorrow. We paid a bunch of money for those things, and they dang well better show up and show up SOON. Monday is a holiday and the shop will be closed. Great. We had plans to be in NH on Thursday, and plans before that to visit friends in Ohio.
Our life is now on hold. We’ll know a little more today, then decide how and where to proceed. This is life on the road and we just deal with it. We found a pet-friendly motel, and Missy is grateful for that and has settled down. She does not like riding in cars and let us know it yesterday on the ride around town trying to find a place to stay. She immediately sniffed out every square inch, found her bed, and took a nap. I refused to let her have the remote, and she was sure sniffing it.
We obviously don’t know how we are now spending our weekend, so please tell me about yours.
Life is…still good…and certainly never dull, y’all!
