Road Testing the Van and Dan’s Broken Down Truck

Tuesday May 26, 2020 Guerneville CA.

Testing out the old van

Today I needed to test out the van to see how the repairs I did were working out or not.

So first thing I did was take care of my chickens. The new chicks seemed to be doing just fine and no other eggs hatched in the incubator so I pulled the plug on it.

Road test

After that I cleaned off the van’s windshield and headed for Santa Rosa to give the van a good test out and see if there were any radiator fluid leaks.

Some visiting

My friend Marty  had a pace maker installed a couple weeks ago so I headed for his house to see how he was doing and shot the bull for a bit.

The van ran just fine on the way over.

Marty was doing well with his pace maker but said he was real low on energy and hoped that would improve a bit.

Planning an Oregon trip

After a couple hours I left and  started for home stopping at another guys place to discuss a trip up to Oregon soon.

And from there I made it back to Guerneville and went up to John’s place to discuss going kayaking soon.

Dan’s broken down truck

I made it home around 6 and didn’t see the note on the door. My friend  Dan had stopped by for a visit but didn’t find me home.

But shortly the phone rang and it was Dan a friend of mine. He said his truck stopped on the freeway just north of here and wanted to know if he could have the tow truck tow his truck to my house so he could work on it. I said sure come on in.

In about an hour the tow truck showed up with Dan and his truck so we got the truck situated in my car port so he could work on it tomorrow. He suspects his fuel pump has gone bad. It’s located inside the fuel tank so if it is it’ll be a pain to work on.

We sat around and caught up with old times until late.

The van tested out ok and I got a lot of visiting in today.

Nice day.
