Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
Rolling Date: 3-10-13 maybe
The bit of a breeze in Rockport kept most folks inside for most of the day. The Teams took a ride down to Light House Lakes to see how things were. The gentle breeze had three feet high waves going in the six inch deep water near the shore. After a bit of walking and sandblasting of the OFM’s skin and glasses, we headed back to the Truck.
As we neared the Truck, the OFM tried to open the door lock with his key fob transmitter. Finally he got it to work by giving six feet of Kentucky windage to the signal. We did not know the wind could affect the signal direction so much.
In the roads and parking lots are lots of palm tree parts that have been blasted from the palm trees. Down at LHL in the parking lot were several prickly pear pads that had been ripped off by the winds. All in all it has been a good day for staying inside.
The Truck trouble has gotten bad enough now that we know it is the new alternator that is making all the screaming noises. It looks like at 0800 tomorrow the Teams will be at the Truck doctor’s office to get another alternator installed. The old one is a month out of warranty and we would have to go back to Del Rio to for assistance if the warranty was still good. Looking back it is easy to see how badly that dealer in Del Rio shafted the Teams.
The schedule is looking better for some trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
