Just In Case . . .

My main accomplishment at work today was to order a new high chair for my client. Well, not him personally, but for his baby.

I did leave work about a couple of hours early since I wanted to wrap up all the outside travel-prep this afternoon, rather than do it tomorrow morning like I usually would. But since it’s suppose to be 40° and a 90% chance of rain tomorrow morning, I wanted to get pretty much everything down now.

(Weather Update: It’s not going to 40° with 90% chance of rain tomorrow morning. It’s now supposed to be 38° with a 95% chance of rain.)

OH Boy!

It only took me about 90 minutes to get everything packed away, disconnected, and tarpped. The whole ‘tarpped’ thing was a ‘Just In Case’ job. As in ‘Just In Case’ the oil leak is not fixed.

This way we don’t have a oily mess to get off the windshield before we can drive around in Kingsland.

And since it’s supposed to be in the low 40’s overnight I also plugged in our engine block heater so the oil will be all warm and toasty tomorrow.

Our first stop tomorrow will be at the Buc-ee’s up in Katy, about 90 minutes on the way, for coffee, and we should know then if the problem is fixed. Or at least we already had oil on the truck by then last time. So we’ll see, I guess.

I plan on pulling out of our site by 8am, and hooked up and on the road by at least 8:30, but hopefully earlier. We want to get up to and around the bottom of Austin before the rush hour gets going.
