Wednesday Musings.

We were up at 0430AM and had our morning coffee, then Donna headed out to the truck company and then tonight she has the restaurant. It was sunny this morning and got up to about 73 degrees around 01:00PM but there was about a 15 MPH steady wind, but it was pleasant enough, I decided to start on the preparation of our fiver for the trip I opened the battery compartment and found out the  two batteries I bought last summer don’t have caps on the top to check the fluid. They are two deep cell group 27 12 volts that replaced two deep cell group 24 ‘s that were shot, I guess they are maintenance free, so while I had them out I hitched a permanent line with a connector for the maintenance charger that I keep on it in the winter rather than the spring clamps I used this winter .I will wait until I am ready to check all the systems inside before I plug the 110volt lead in and then the converter will carry the batteries and I can unplug the charger, I will leave it unplugged on both ends but where my batteries are located there is a shelf so I will keep it in the trailer incase I need a charger for the truck while we are traveling. My generator has a 12 volt plug in case we are not at a park with 110power, but that rarely happens and  if it did it would only maybe a one night at a Wally World or something.

Just as I was tightening everything up a storm front came in it got dark and you could feel the temperature drop. I buttoned it up before the rain started, so far no rain, but it’s a good ten degrees cooler, looks like 63 now.

Rigg’s is a happy guy, Samantha’s girlfriend Lisa just came in and Rigg’s has a crush on her and he is bringing his toys and wanting to play with her.

Not much else going on at the ranch, waiting for Nicole to get home from school boy the weeks are flying by, I can’t believe a week of March is already gone. that means April and vacation will be here soon, At that time a lot of people are heading home from there winter havens, we will just be leaving.

Everyone have a fine week, and be safe out there. Sam & Donna…
