Default Spring has Sprung we hope.

Well today although is has been really cool here in the Pacific Northwest this March I plugged the old girl in for 3 or 4 hours and installed a kitchen cupboard door that was partially rebuilt with a couple who are retired neighbours at my place in WA.

After we got that done I took the tarp off of her and looked at them and said ever had a ride in a Bluebird? He is the retired Base Chief of CFB Chiiliwack a long term Military Man. They said no....so I said ...you want to?

So after most of the winter a short two grunts and the old 2 stroke was running. Took the wheel covers off, aired her up and away we went. After checking all fluids of course!

We had a blast playing the musical horn people looking and after about a 15 mile run on the highway we put her back in the stall. She came up to operating temp fully and we made sure the entire engine was warm not just the antifreeze.

Much to my surprise the voltmeter and the temp gauge started working! The temp gauge worked some of the time before. So it was a good day. The bird ran great and we had a fun time. All is good in the Pacific Northwest.

Hey Gary I'm on my way home to that cool weather. Just north of Sacramento tonight at he Corning Gambling House. Sue needed some casino time. Played my horns today to amuse the cows on the range and didn't know there was three cowpunchers riding herd. They all waved. Those horns bring a smile to more than just the cows.

You're correct. This is an Olive Garden.

Hey Rob, how much is the ferry to Victoria these days including the toad? We'd like to come up some summer.

Morey the ferry rates are just about the same for the US ferry or Canadian ferry. For my 60ft of coach and car the cost is approx $300 one way. It is cheaper if you disconnect the car and drive it on separately. Sue doesn't drive so I go on as one unit. The Canadian crossing is a much more scenic route but the US route has easier customs clearance. I always take the US ferry out of Port Angeles. I do recommend you book a reservation
