Picking Up the New Fuel Pump, a Visit and Loading Up the Van

Wednesday September 15, 2021 Guerneville CA.

New fuel pump

I was off to Santa Rosa when I got it got it going to go to the auto parts store to pick up my new electric fuel pump that I ordered yesterday.

I drove down to Smother’s Auto Parts to see Cindy and pick it up which I did.

A visit

Then I drove the short distance to Marty’s house to visit a bit and discuss our trip route we’ll take tomorrow and some other stuff too about the trip.

We visited about an hour and I had to go home to do some more van loading.

Leaky radiator

When I got home I noticed my car had a wet spot on it’s front bumper that I’d seen the other day but today it was a lot wetter. Hummm, what can that be. I removed the plastic grill in front of the radiator to have a look.car


Water jet

Looking carefully I could see a little jet of water squiring out of the hole.spray


I’ll need to repair that when I get back home after our trip is over.

Too much food

I spent the rest of the day loading things in the van. I figured I had way too much food so I removed a lot of the older canned stuff I had stored in the van and some of it was getting a bit old.

Spuds and onions

My brother Tom brought some onions and potatoes from his garden by so I loaded that stuff too.


I puttered loading stuff the rest of the day and got most stuff all loaded up except for the last things that are in the fridge which get loaded just before I take off.

We’ll be off tomorrow

I plan to leave in the morning headed to Marty’s house where we will take off on our trip headed to Troy Oregon through Winnemucca Nevada. We plan to take two days to drive on up there.

Internet access

I should have some internet access if Marty still has his Jet Pack or else I’ll have to use the libraries and schools on the trip to post.

Hang tight and you will hear from me.

Nice day.
