Saturday, May 19, 2012!!

A few days ago I got my pressure washer back from my son, and one of the things I wanted to do was to pressure wash the underside of the motorhome  and get rid of the remaining mud that accumulated while in Mexico. I realize that much of it dates back to our second day in Mexico, November 14th, when we had a little problem on a muddy, rain soaked road. Still, I removed a lot with a hose at the campground yet there was a lot I couldn't reach with the hose unless I chose to crawl under the motorhome in the mud. NO WAY!!! I was under the camper today greasing all the fittings and noticed that a lot of mud remained. The pressure washer made short work of it and I was surprised to see just how much stayed on the chassis, through several rain storms and many miles of bumpy roads.

As I mentioned above, I finished the grease fittings today so I'm all set for another 5000 miles. I also took it to a gas station this morning and filled it up with diesel ad $3.719. Diesel was $4.119 just a few weeks ago and it will probably go even lower, but I didn't want to wait too long to fill the tank as we'll be leaving for the Northeast in less than two weeks. Two of our grandchildren will fly up on June 10th and we'll have the better part of a month showing them everything from Boston to Cape Cod, where Helen and I grew up and where their Dad spent the first 12 years of his life. Now we are in making lists and packing things. Heaven help me!
