Thanks Ford for the great service?
I packed everything up and left my campground and headed to Rock Springs to have my rig serviced. I also wanted them to check my brakes and a few other things as well. I went to a lube shop and they couldn’t do it. So then I headed to the local Ford dealer where I figured they could surely do it. NOPE! They said the rig was too big and they didn’t have the proper equipment to work on it.
There is only one Ford dealer I have ever taken my rig to that really knows what they are doing. Unfortunately they are located in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA and a bit of a drive from here. Some of you might remember an instance I had with the Dallas Ford Dealer some time ago when I needed a fuel pump and they had no idea where to get it.
This is a friggen Ford truck for crying out loud! There are a million of them on the road. Anyway they gave me the name of an RV service guy who they said could do the work I was asking about. OK, I will go to him. Drove all over hell finding him and when I got there he said he couldn’t do the work as well. He gave me the name of a heavy equipment repair outfit and I went to him.
By this time most of the day had been used up and he could do it but not today. So I headed on up to the same spot I was in when I started the day and parked for the weekend. I wasn’t really excited about traveling on Labor Day weekend anyway so I guess it worked out OK.
At least I will be saving some money as I don’t have to pay for either campgrounds or gasoline.
Great sunset views
I did happen to get some great sunset pics.
Chica loves to run
The next day I let Chica off her leash to just run. I know she would rather run on a nice green lawn but this will have to do. Before I let her out without a leash I made sure their were no big raptors around to grab her. I have seen only a few very small birds one morning and the horses and that is all the wildlife around here.
And she always runs home!
Today started out as normal. There were many cars and ATV’s driving on the road. Then I looked up an saw the Sheriff drive past with all their lights blaring. Then it was the Fire Department.
Then I saw a couple of ambulances. Finally everyone returned and then I saw a large wrecker go past. A while later the wrecker returned with a damaged jeep. The pics aren’t that great, but it shows the damage.
I am not sure what happened but apparently that jeep went someplace it shouldn’t. Maybe he/she was drinking too much. It just reminded me that even though I have a 4-wheeler I cannot go everywhere and you still have to be cautious. Fortunately the police and fire services came out to this area to help them.
I have had high winds all day and now it is sprinkling. One way to wash my rig and Sami.
