Broke Down in Covington . . .

We didn’t make it to Poche’s Fish N Camp in Breaux Bridge tonight as scheduled.

Instead we’re Academedocking in the Covington LA Academy parking lot just off I-12.

The hydraulic fan motor has started leaking again. I though I had it fixed this morning when we left Meridian, and it was – for about a hundred miles. This time it’s not loose, but it’s still leaking around the base of the motor.

I’m going to wait until tomorrow morning when I don’t have hot hydrualic fluid dripping in my face to look at it again.

Hopefully I can fix it enough to get us home. As it is right now, it pumps hydraulic fluid out about as fast as I can pour it in.

Wish me luck.

    Good luck and take your time.  Hope it’s still cool morning air when you are working on it.  Glad you are in a safe place though.
