Adventure Location: Aransas Pass, Texas
It has been a fun and busy day today. The morning started with a ride to the repair location to pick up the Truck. A look at the work order showed that they had done a very thorough job of testing the ductwork valves. Except for the one that needed replacement all the other (and there are several) actuators and flappers or whatever is the right name for those items were deemed to be in good operating shape.
A little over $500 added load to the OFM Teams credit card. Then the OFM remembered a plastic piece on the side of the driver seat he had broken a few months ago. It is the part that holds the electric seat controls. The OFM had already figured out a get by repair to save the probably high cost of a new piece of plastic. He did a wise thing this morning and found out what an actual GM part would cost. It was under $20 and can be here tomorrow. So tomorrow we are supposed to go back to the dealer to pick up the part. The parts we priced for the get by repair was almost $15. It pays to get real numbers to work with.
The camera we ordered Sunday night to be the standby camera for when the current camera fails came in today. It was supposed to come in on the 17th but Amazon moved it really fast.
Now the OFM needs to verify everything is ok on this $75 camera before we head out into never-never land of the west. Yep the OFM is big on these small point and shoot cameras that can go everywhere with him without being a pain to carry.
Recording the adventures and then “enhancing the adventures” for the blog is a great way of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
