This is how all the fun started yesterday…
Yep, I got the van loaded, had Jeepers sedated, and was ready to hit the road…and there it was — a rather fast coolant leak coming from the rear. It ended up being a day-long ordeal. Why did this happen? It turns out my leaf springs were installed rather carelessly and a bolt securing them ruptured a hose that runs the length of the vehicle.
Kudos to the folks responsible, however. They promptly apologized and are issuing me a check for the $400 repair in just a couple days. And, truth be told, after the costs are reimbursed, I actually came out ahead. If we hadn’t been stranded, I wouldn’t have found myself at Thunder Valley Casino earning a decent wage for the evening.
Tomorrow I’m going to make a stop in Chico on the way back to Redding.
