What happened to the White Lion

 With everything going on yesterday. I forgot to tell you what happened to the White Lion.

After the potential buyer came by and quickly looked it over, he told me he had a potential buy and would have to get in touch with him and talk over if he was interested and a price.  He agreed to pay for the towing if purchased.

Later that day, my brother called and as we were talking, he asked if I had gotten the motorhome started and I said "No".  I told him I had sprayed Ether into the air intake, and it just would not start.  He said that when he lived in Alaska, and the temperature was so low diesel engines would not start.  They would spray once in the air intake and begin starting it and then spray a shot while it was turning over and they would start.

I decided to give it a try, and sure enough it started right up.  I called the buyer and told him I could drive it over that afternoon and save him a tow.  We decided on Monday.  

I was going to pick up the new motorhome on Monday, but my SF agent took Presidents Day off, so it looks like it will be Tuesday.  The buyer called Monday and wanted to get together, but I asked him if we could make it Tuesday.  

Tuesday was the day.   Had my insurance on the new MH and told them to cancel the White Lion tomorrow.  It was nice to be able to drive it one last time.  If it wasn't for the smoke and the non starting, I would never know there was a problem.  We made the title switches with no hitches and we both left happy.

Then on Wednesday, as I mentioned, my body pooped out from all the moving I have done this month, so, today Thursday, not much happened.  I rested for the day and just loaded a few light things into Miss Adventure Travels II.  I'm feeling better this evening, and will take the muscle relaxant medication for the first time.  Hope it helps.

Thanks for stopping by.
