    Been doing things. We are taking a stupid route to Barstow. Going down through Laughlin to Yucca first. There are some long, steep hills. Got down first gear going up one of them, so far. The engine heats up going faster.

    Jim, you got any idea what that barge weighs? Those mountain grades can be tough, I'm sure.

    They both do, I eat at both every year. You cannot compare the two, they both have their own style of food. And Blake's has a hot dog! Yummy

    Finally stopped for the night. Camping near Barstow. We had a little trouble with the fuel pump fuse, and then some crap in the carb float valve. Got it fixed. The Mohandas are really hard on it, had to work to climb grades, and gets hot quickly. Still losing water out the pump. And the manifold gasket thing is getting worse, it blew out the ends too. But it's still running. IMG_20181101_160842.jpeg IMG_20181101_231342.jpeg

    Well, it looks like you do have "accommodations" in the "rear". Is there an Arizona a lunatic asylum missing a couple of patients? You guys are totally NUTS, but in a good way. I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    You better throw some Barrs Leak in the radiator. You got nothing to lose at this point.

    May be worth a try to regrease the water pump.

    How much further are you traveling Squirrel?
