Car In our Last park:
'55 Chevy hard top, Love it!
For Friday’s stuff Posting Thurs. Nite.:
We took a walk before we left St Clair, the car above was in the park, it is a beauty.
We left ST. Clair at
0800 yesterday. We drove I 69 a road we had never been on, it was smooth for
about 30 miles then turned rough…
42 tires @ $650 each! Can you imagine buying tires for the trucks I see on the road here?
Lots of farm land. We drove past Flint, Lansing, Grand Rapids and Holland; much farmland and just plain pretty country. We attended a Tulip Festival once in Holland. This year, due to the pandemic, no festival was held.
No sky lines but these two shots from Grand Rapids because we were detoured thru town.
We switched from I 69 to I 96 to I 94 good highways (mostly). We drove along the East coast of Lake Michigan but never saw it, I was disappointed. Years ago we visited St. Joseph and enjoyed the Lake bunches.
From Michigan we entered Indiana. JJ was driving, Sherry was co-pilot and I was on the computer looking for a RV park for the night. We slowed down. Sherry said we are stopping for fuel at a Flying J here in Gary.
That’s when it happened….. I was at the pump, Jack Jr. said, “Hey dad, there is a bad leak under the engine.“ OUCH. It appeared to be transmission fluid about a gallon. It turned out to be Diesel; A broken fuel line to #2 injector. JJ & I got the flooding leak down to a dribble,to move it from the pump. It appears to be much less of a problem than transmission.
So here we are at Gary, Indiana awaiting a tow in the morning to get it taken care of, yep on the road, IT HAPPENS.
Life is good, we are safe and Sherry fixed a big supper, Pintos, Cornbread, cabbage and salmon patties. We have the generator running. Flying J says OKAY to sit here waiting.
PS: Not sure of today on the internet. I do hope we are out soon.
