We will be there too. We are just not sure when and with no bird we will park close. We will be there for the Prime Rib for sure. If I had to crawl from Lake Havasu to get there I will be there. Kathie will drive so I can meet her there.

Default Quartzite

We should arrive on Wednesday. I was doing a final check on the generator today. Started it, loaded up with air conditioners to warm it up and noticed a coolant leak. Checked it and found the block drain valve was leaking past the stem and lost half the header tank coolant in very short time. Replaced the valve and I am ready.

System checks before travel are always a good idea.

Now there are 8 of us here. Great weather today.

Default Zip Dee Chairs...

Any interest in four gray color Zip Dee chairs and two Zip Dee leg-rests that attach to the chairs? Make an offer. I can bring them to Q tomorrow. Short notice I know.

Keep an eye on the new valve--vibration eventually caused a similar valve to crack on our generator. Ours extended out quite a bit. Hopefully this won't be a problem with your installation.

We hit a delay with the idler pully bearing is dead! Looking today for a new one, and the shaft is also bad. The tac is dead also and I side swiped the side on the post to protect the fuel pump's.
