Wednesday Musings.

Slept through our morning coffee, for some reason I was up most of the night and only slept from about 02:30am until 05:30AM right after Donna left for the truck company.

This morning I changed the fuel filter on the truck, luckily the two I ordered last week arrived by UPS yesterday afternoon. So it was about a half hour job to change it and another 15 minutes to prime and get the engine to catch, a couple of rough snorts and then the Duramax settled into it’s smooth idle.

I then hitched the unmarked Duramax onto the Weeb Command Post and turned them both around to face north out at the end of the driveway.




               Ready to roll in the early morning.

Hey Rick almost looks like your truck doesn’t it.

Now one more night in our own bed and it will be off to the southlands.All three of us can’t wait. It is always exciting to head out especially to new places you haven’t been to.

We will try to get a blog out tomorrow after we stop for the night, we will have the camera’s up front in the truck with us.

Probably neither one of us will sleep much we are both so excited to be getting away.

Tomorrow morning we should be in Georgia, I can see a Moonpie in my future and an RC Cola.

Hope everyone is having a good day in blogland, see ya all tomorrow. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…
