Lubricated the rails under the rig's main slide this morning, cleaned the battery terminals, ran the rig's engine & generator up to temperature & then discovered we have a nasty leak in our kitchen faucet. I have the feeling a cold snap we had awhile back may have cracked the plastic fitting in the faucet assembly so we are going to have to get that replaced. Also wrote down the rig's tire size today because for sure we are going to need new tires all the way around before we hit the road again in the fall. The Goodyear G670 tires look fine but I checked the tire dates & they were made in May of 2002 so their safety expiry date is long overdo.
I threw the 3D Pipe photos in last night's blog for no other reason than to just break up the usual pictures of birds & flowers just in case folks might be getting bored with that stuff. It's a real challenge to refrain from being repetitive with the blog when not out traveling to new destinations on a regular basis. I try to vary the topics as much as I can as well but when your sitting in the same location month after month that can be a real challenge. Blog repetition can be a rut that is hard to get out of. Our daily reader numbers continue to drop but that is to be expected because after all, this is first & foremost a travel blog. It's a travel blog that is just temporarily stuck at home for a few months right now:((
Some people might suggest only doing the blog while traveling & of course that makes a whole lot of darn good sense. Some fellow travelers do that & it works well for them but they are not a blabber fingers like I am. Blogging & the photos that go along with it have become a very enjoyable hobby for me whether we are on the road or not. Gives me an opportunity everyday to vent the thought process. Why be selfish & keep my life all to myself locked up tightly in my head. That's where headaches come from you know!!
Tourists see the world, travelers experience it.
