We spent the day getting ready for our departure tomorrow to Logan Lake and the Coast. First, Val cleaned the place, vacuuming and washing floor while I washed the windshield, put our chairs in storage including spare water, beer, paper products and ended up rearranging the lockers to suit. I checked the “HYDRO-THERMO” heating system and checked out the access to the motor from the bedroom and ended up dropping the bed on my hand and almost crushing it. It swelled up right away but the skin didn’t break. Val put a cold compress on it. That bed is HEAVY!!!!! I took the garbage to the dump and loaded the hitch in the back of the jeep. 4 o’clock and we are pretty well ready to go; time for HH at Marcel and Donna
We left around 9:30 am and headed West on Hwy 1 to Kamloops with Val following behind in the jeep. We stopped for fuel at Flying J @ $1.30/L (that’s over $5/gallon). We arrived at “CUMMINS” 15 minutes late (appointment was at 10 AM) and they already had a truck in the Bay so we had to wait then finally our rig went in. In the mean time, we drove to town in the jeep. Our first stop was at Thompson RV to return an item then onward to Costco. We also stopped at Walmart and finally returned to CUMMINS around 2 pm. We sat there and read while they finished working on the rig. I had an oil change and lube, all the air and fuel filters changed and the same done on the generator. It all cost a lot more than I thought but at least now I have peace of mind and a starting point for maintenance. We finally left at 3:30 and headed up the Coquihalla (#5 Hwy) to 97D where we turned off to head for Logan Lake. We set up then drove to the Kirkby’s for HH and dinner. Their son Trenton was there, also friends Mike and Donna. Trenton’s girlfriend CLaire showed up a while later and we proceeded to have a few drinks, good food and great conversations. We came home around 10 PM and went straight to bed.
