May 6, 2011 we paid $4.13 for diesel. Now three years later at the same station we paid $3.99 for diesel. Now ain’t that something? Now if we could get the Canadian prices at the same prices from three years ago we would be alright – NOT!
We will leave here next Wednesday and cross over the border and head for Lethbridge and Bridgewiew RV Park there. On the way I think I will stop at the Cummins dealer and see if they can check the Babies DEF usage. I called Cummins and they said usage should be about 2 1/2 gallons per 1,000 miles. The Baby is about 4+ gallons per 1,000. It started out using about 2 1/2 gallons but has worked it’s way up. Hopefully they can check it and adjust without waiting all day long. I think it’s all computer adjustments. I got enough DEF to go 4,300 miles. That will get up us to Fairbanks and even Anchorage. If they adjust it right, I can go 7,000 miles. That’s a big difference.
This morning we went to a buffet breakfast at the Golden Corral restaurant with Ed & Sandy Kruty. It wasn’t bad for $15 bucks for two old farts.
Of course it was still cold and a little rain here and there all day long. Not a set out day for sure.
Today Butch & Kathy Ford might be coming in. They’re the ones coming from Baltimore, MD and left last Thursday. They spent last night in Black Hawk near Rapid City, SD.
