Sick Sierra


Adventure Location: Decatur, Al

Today's Date: 12-04-2022

Well not a lot has happened today. The cold damp morning and dragging feeling for the OFM resulted with the OFM just sticking around the Castle this morning in hopes for better weather.

On the way back to the campsite yesterday Sierra started misbehaving. We took the symptoms to the Internet and found that the work is beyond what the OFM can handle these days so Sierra may go to the dealer shop in the morning for the repair. If not then we will run Sierra in the “emergency mode” to go to the doctor Tuesday morning and then try for the dealer service that afternoon.

It is supposed to be rainy for a few days so that will create more thrills on the road we bet.

Our guess is that we will have beef stew with tortillas for supper and do some more coloring for the excitement of trying to have tooooo much fun.


  1. Sounds like you've got a good evening ahead, in spite of the cold/damp day. And in spite of anticipating car trouble. I hate car trouble. About as much as plumbing trouble or HVAC trouble, but I've got good guys for those.
    The car is something else again. Mostly because in spite of it's being a 2004 Honda Element, it hasn't cost me much yet. Only serious repair was strut replacement a bit back, but that went well. Good luck with Sierra being back to it's reliable self!!

    1. Thank you. Those Elements are notorious for lasting trouble free for a couple of eternities. Sierra is a 2014 and has been very reliable for the times we have been together. It has 125000 miles now.
