Slept really well last night as if I didn't have a worry in the world. It was around 9:30 while I was working on a Phrazle problem that Yuma and I saw a blue truck pull up to the White Lion. It was Ivan, Road Trip 2022 and he had moved just four or five miles north on Sidewinder Road and read my post last night and saw I was having a problem.He wanted to know if there was anything he could do to help. I wanted him to hear what it sounded like, so I went up and turned the key and guess what?!! The darn thing started right up! What is going on here?
We talked for awhile as the WL ran. Then we went outside to see if it still smokes and it does. Plus, I noticed one of my radiator overflow patch jobs was leaking. Not going anywhere till that's fixed, so shut the engine off for the day. Of course, hoping it will start tomorrow.
Since I wasn't going anywhere in the WL today, and today is going to be such a beautiful day, I checked with Deb and Riley, On a long and lonesome highway... to see if they wanted to take a ride over to my old Mittry Lake haunts and I would treat them to a shake at the Date Shake Shop near there. I go there every year to have a shake. Their big item is Date Shakes, but I'm not into those. A good ole chocolate shake is fine for me.
At 2 o'clock, we all jumped into Deb's spacious truck for a day of joy riding. All, being, me, Yuma, Ivan, Riley and Deb as the chauffer. Little did I know it was going to be a 120 mile circular drive.
First stop was an antique vehicle Museum. We didn't go in, but took a few pictures of the antiques on top and outside the wall.
We then crossed the Colorado River at the Imperial Dam into Arizona.
Turned out to be an all afternoon event, but I think everyone enjoyed the ride. We headed on into Yuma and made a quick stop at the Walmart and headed home as it was getting late in the day.
It was 6 o'clock and the sun was setting as we left Deb's place for home. More chicken sandwich for me and dogfood and hotdog for Yuma. When I publish my post and have dessert, we're calling it a night.
