The morning started with Mr. Murphy failing to sleep in and causing some minor issues with the locking cover on the bed of the Silverado. More likely it was because I washed the truck yesterday and the water that got into the lock cylinder froze solid. I was able to apply heat to the key and get the water to melt so I could get in and finish packing things that we needed to take.
|Hoping this doesn't cause an issue|
It took us a couple of hours to get the remaining stuff packed (I forgot my computer glasses), finish loading the trailer and putting the bikes on the new rack then I hooked up the trailer and we hit the road at roughly 9:12 am. Starting mileage was 57139.2 and we were off to try and make it to Roseburg, Oregon. Eight hours later we pulled into Roseburg and we are staying in a small park six and half miles from the freeway, next to a river because neither one of us feels like being cold in freezing weather. We have full hook ups and plan to dig in for the night.
I have a Goal Zero Sherpa solar power unit for when we travel. The solar cell sits on the dash and collects sunlight and recharges the Sherpa so I can use it to recharge things like my phone and Kindle. I was looking at their website last week and noticed that the have a power supply unit that works from a power jack in the truck to supply the Sherpa with power should we fail to find sunlight. I ordered it second day delivery and it arrived yesterday, except it was the wrong item. Obviously picked and packed incorrectly it was something completely different from what I had ordered. I contact them via email fully expecting to get a call tag to send the old one back. Nope, they told me to keep the thingy they sent and they would priority expedite the correct item to me. Unfortunately I won’t be home to collect by my grandson will forward it to me as soon as I find a place to stay long enough to get a delivery. Can’t say enough about Goal Zero.
While Honey has been having some issues with what has been going on lately she seemed to settle in once we hit the road.
|Just another day on the road|
It is going to be a quiet night. Looking forward to bed. Hope all is well and thanks for stopping by.
