Good Morning;
Popeye - it was on a Ranger pickup. I think it was either snow packed in around the throttle cable while driving into the blizzard or possibly carburetor icing. I believe heat rising from the engine melted whatever the issue was. I was thinking if you were facing into the prevailing wind while snow was blowing perhaps some snow turned to ice and froze the throttle linkage.

Today is a clean A/C day. Supposed to be calm and reasonable temperatures so will scoot up with the compressor to blow out accumulated dust and leaves. Heat pumps are working well and would like to keep them like that for the extent possible.

Sun us out and trees are stationary, even the tops! Will be a great day.

Hope the weather has warmed up and Orrin has been able to safely fill the water tank.

Have a great day.

May the best of your today be the worst of your tomorrow.

Ron, I see where next week is supposed to get more "seasonal" not looking forward to that. Today was interesting, first thing in the morning (around 5:30 am) I go to the shop and turn the heat up, outside light doesn't come on, (it's a motion sensor) hmmmm next, inside stove is not running, okay breaker tripped, nope, breaker is no longer making contact and arcs when I push and wiggle, well the box isn't really big enough anyway so off to HD, (3rd day in a row), new panel box and a set of breakers later that's what I did today.

I spent most of the day in Midland, Texas, getting the hot water heater working, and filling the water tight. Very exhausting day. So about 5 oíclock I ran into a traffic jam that cost me over an hour. Iím shut down for the night. Going to get a hot shower and get the grubbiness off me. I hope everyone is doing well. Iím thinking it will be Monday or Tuesday when I get to Yuma, the winds have been really bad fuel mileage is only been about 8 miles to the gallon that I havenít gone in a mile over 65 miles an hour. Sorry about the typos I am using Tapatalk. Keep the shiny side up. ORRIN.

Coffee is brewing. 25į with cloudy skies this morning. Heading to 29į with afternoon snow. Yesterday was mostly conserve energy. Did clean up drive and walkway to be sure snow forecast for today is easier to clean up. Neighbor came over with his 9 month old daughter. Sassy had a great time. Today is going to be another conserve energy day.
Caught this moon picture in the evening in a very short break in the clouds. There was a contest run by one of the radio station in Detroit. To guess how many minutes of sun light we would have during the month of February. My guess was not enough.
Took this moon picture in the evening during break in clouds. Never got a chance take a better picture before it went back behind the clouds.


Orrin, A hot shower. That's all that maters. Safe travels.

Popeye, that's the plan. No more climbing.

Gordon, one of the maintainace items many miss until their AC doesn't work correctly.

Terry, stay warm. Always something that needs repair.

Everyone stay well and safe.

Good Morning All.

Weíre a week behind you. We hope to pull out next Friday for Yuma but without the motorhome since weíre looking at only two to three weeks in Arizona. The plan is to stay in the casita on our lot in the Foothills while weíre there. Itís just a couple of blocks from Ron, Frank, and Ritaís place. You will find Yuma an old school hot rodderís dream. It seems old farts with cars love to strut their stuff. Our neighbor across the street from us has a 67 Stingray that theyíve owned for over fifty years, 427, 400 horse, triple carbs etc. Itís worth the trip to Yuma just to see and listen to the car. Youíre going to love Yuma. Did I mention that you will see cars that are 60 to 70 years old with no serious rust issues?

Good Morning;
Frank - that looks great. Going to enjoy that on the trail. When is the shakedown run?

Another lovely day.

Did the AC cleanup yesterday. Observed the fan blades in the units are very sharp. Got away pretty much unscathed. Only one minor bleed. Note to self - be careful reaching leaves out of the unit when near the blades.

Shopping day. Have a small list of items to pick up. Will require multiple stops as the list is bits of this and that.

Safe travel Orrin. Going to go better now that you have water aboard. At the minimum you will feel better.

Have a great day.

May the best of your today be the worst of your tomorrow.

Poured first cup of coffee. 26į with light snow this morning. Heading to 31į with snow accumulation less than a 1". 3" to 4" of snow forecast for yesterday never showed up. That was OK. Lowes had a Little Giant 22' ladder on sale. So a trip to there to pick it up was the only thing that got done yesterday. No plans for today.


Orrin, safe trip to Yuma today. Do not forget to meet Frank and Rita.

Frank. very nice trailer.

Gordon, I always check the screws that lock fan on shaft while cleaning AC. Surprising how many are loose.

Harvey, I like old cars. Send picture of your neighbors in Yuma.

Prayers and best wishes for everyone.

Good Morning All.
