New glasses. Sam has mentioned problems reading the board and computers at school. She tested only a .25 near sighted, which normally is not a prescription, but since she has mentioned it so many times, she got her first pair of glasses.
One of the things “Turtle” was missing was a battery tie down. The battery clamps were shot so I removed the battery box, cleaned everything up and installed new clamps and a homemade tie down.
Good to back on the bike after 8 days.
My “friends” decided they needed to “salute” the ultimate expedition vehicle ever sold in the US (a 1993 Toyota FZJ80 Land Cruiser, named The Turtle by Sam)… and we even messed with the local children.
This weekend we met friends from PA, MD and VA for a float on the Rappahannock River. At least we hoped for float and not drag or paddle too much. Notice the heavy use of Wiffle ball bats….
With this group, protection and aggression is the order of the day. The kayak went well, only a few accidental kayak sinkings, Sam and I got close in the tandem when we got hung up in a rapid and water was flowing over the boat. Deb took a decent fall and has a great bruise to show for it ; )
Off to work, home to pack and on the road to VA.
Getting ready for a trip. New storage drawer and a slider for the fridge.
The Turtle gets base-lined. All fluids (coolant, oil, AT trans, F&R Dif, transfer) and a new oil pump seal
I am ready to not be at work.
