Yuma and I took a a jeep ride along the bottom of the canal just west of where we are staying in the LTVA area this morning. It rained quite a bit this past Sunday, the day I returned and when it rains in the desert it means mud. Mud everywhere. The jeep is muddy, the motorhome floor is muddy. It is drying fast around here, so will wait till it is dry to clean everything.
The rest of the day was spent working on the 1990 Ford E250 Econoline Van my neighbor has. It won’t start and they want a couple hundred dollars to tow it from this LTVA location north of Yuma to the garage in Yuma.
The ignition key cylinder was acting up so thought that was it. Went into town and bought a new one and put it in, but still would not start.
Talked to Evan, my son-in-law a few times and tried a number of things to try and determine the problem. Evan thinks it is a bad starter, so tomorrow I will remove the starter and take it to NAPA and have it tested.
I will remember to get some photos tomorrow of me working diligently under the van.
Poor Yuma wasn’t happy I was doing other things and not playing with him. Hopefully, he learned something watching me work and not accomplishing anything.
See you later.
