PHEEBS & I SURE ARE GLAD WE HAVE AN AIR CONDITIONED VEHICLE AGAIN
This is my Tuesday May 26th post. Due to some kind of overall problem with ‘Live Writer’ I & many others have not been able to publish their posts using LW. I have copied & pasted my post into the Blogger format & published it that way. Photos may not appear. Hopefully Live Writer will resolve this problem today………………..
After nearly 5 years Pheebs & I are sure happy to finally have ourselves an air conditioned vehicle for our back road tours again. Humidity began building early in the morning & as we slipped along a few back roads between Bayfield & Grand Bend that cool air conditioned air coming out of the Jeep Liberator's vents just felt soooooooo refreshing. We had driven down to Ron's Four Seasons Performance to pick up a couple safety cables to go along with our new tow plate assembly. Found out after arriving home Monday our Sterling Roadmaster cables were not going to work with the new Blue Ox tow plate. Ron gave us a set of cables & I dropped off our old Roadmaster tow bar which he is sure he can find a buyer & sell for us. What a guy, always so very helpful.
Turned out to be too hot for me to do much of anything today so I stuck close to our cooling fans & central air while Kelly had herself a totally relaxing day after feeling just a little spent after Monday's hospital procedure. She did end up having to take a couple Tylenol's Monday night after the freezing wore off around the biopsy puncture site.
I would say we are finally in full blown summer mode now with all our forests fully leafed out looking so lush & green. Insects are in the air with bees buzzing through heated air. Our front yard has filled in nicely again as our privacy foliage thickens. Not quite thick enough for my liking of course so I may be out planting some additional shrubs shortly to hide us away even more.
Wrote myself out a check-list on a piece of cardboard for preparing the Liberty's automatic transmission & transfer case for towing. I will keep that in the console for handy reference. Procedure is basically the same as the Wrangler's standard transmission except instead of depressing a clutch I will be moving the auto gearshift into neutral while going through the steps. Sometime in the next few days I'll hook up the Jeep behind the rig & we'll take the combination for a spin to make sure everything is aligned & working properly. The Big EEE is due for another run anyway:))
GROANER'S CORNER:(( There was once an aspiring veterinarian who put himself through veterinary school working nights as a taxidermist. Upon graduation, he decided he could combine his two vocations to better serve the needs of his patients and their owners, while doubling his practice and, therefore, his income. He opened his own offices with a shingle on the door saying, "Dr. Jones, Veterinary Medicine and Taxidermy - Either way, you get your pet back!"

Nice that you got your blog posted and the Liberty ready to flat tow. I am sure that all will go well for you.ReplyDelete
Glad your blog posted!ReplyDelete
Funny groaner! I have had a/c in my vehicles for years, but lately I notice I use it when I wouldn't have back then. I'll just go for comfort in my aging years!ReplyDelete
I presume you meant transfer case not crankcase? Were you going without auxiliary breaking again? I see Missouri i the only state not requiring some type of either speed or weight related braking system on towed vehicles. If you google Motorhome magazine dingy guide, there is a section that covers that.ReplyDelete
Living in CA my whole life I didn't know you could buy a car without AC! Since we found out the Cherokee's transfer case wouldn't go into N when we hooked it up for our first run, I'd say taking a trial run with everything hooked up is much smarter :-) Hope LW is up and running today. Not sure I can go two days in a row without some Al Pics!!!ReplyDelete
Unless MIcrosoft reprograms Live writer, it will never be compatible with blogger again.. And since microsoft hasn't made any changes to their "live" series of programs since 2012, I'm not hopeful that changes will come now.... Maybe I'll be wrong....ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear about the problems with LiveWriter. I use it all the time and it's working well with WordPress.ReplyDelete
Hard to believe you're in full-blown summer when I'm still seeing snow patches in the forest and barely flowers between.
