On the move…
Last week I moved from Oceanside Elks to the Mission Viejo Elks. I had to attend a memorial to a prior boss. I was only at the MV Elks for 3 days (which is all they allow at one time). You just park in a parking lot with no hook-ups. I then moved out to O’Neil Park for 2 days only. I knew I was taking my rig into the local Ford dealer (where I have taken it several times before) for service and check a few items.
Need some work done on rig…
I took my computer with me so I had something to do while in their waiting room. They were going to check my brakes and a normal service, plus also check to see why it has been so sluggish lately.. When going down the mountains I can smell the brakes. I am very careful when driving in the mountains and don’t stand on my brakes all the time.
All I needed was a simple check up…HA!
They said that the brakes were OK, but also suggested I get a major tune-up. It hadn’t been done in some time so went ahead and took care of that. They road tested it and it was still sluggish. I needed a new catalytic converter. BUMMER!!!
So after replacing the catalytic converter it runs really good. Lots of pep. I still might have them replace the rear brakes anyway and turn the rotors. Better to do it now then when I am on the road somewhere in no-man’s-land trying to find someone to help me.
No place to call home!
After leaving the dealer on Thursday I returned to O’Neil Park and requested 6 nights. NO WAY says the park ranger. We are booked through Easter. She did have space available for that night only. I stayed there that night. PANIC MODE!!! I called several other parks in the area and they were all booked up. Then I called the MV Elks and they said come on down. They don’t have very much space and there were already 3 other rigs there, but I was able to squeeze into a spot. I am here for 3 days and then will probably return to O’Neil Park as I am only allowed 3 days maximum at the MV Elks.
Back to Oceanside in another week
I also got in touch with my son and we decided to meet up in Oceanside where we can hang out and catch up with each other. So it looks like I may be returning to the Oceanside Elks for another week. I am really glad I joined the Elks when I did. They are life savers this week-end when everywhere else is full.
HAPPY EASTER !!!
