Alaska 2014 Get Acquainted

We had a tech out here in the desert at 8 AM doing an annual service on our Hydro Hot system.  He arrived on time, worked on our unit the whole time, finished in 45 minutes and left.  That’s damn good service.  He said it was burning a little rich and smelled of diesel when operating.  He aired out a little and now it’s running perfectly.

I took Carol in town for some Line Dancing and I just putted around the flea markets.

We went to Burger King for their new subs and buy one get one deal. 

Instead of going straight back to the Beast we did a little four wheeling.  We went down some trails, went where we went without trails, over some small hills and in a river bed.  We just wanted to have a little fun in the jeep.  A car would not have made it in most of the places we went.

We got back to the Beast and did a little catching up on this and that.  Gary & Mary pulled in along Steve and Lila, Don & Sharon. Yesterday Lisa & Jim arrived.

Today people went out on the side by side ATV’s again.  Bob & Molly used Steve’s Razor, Jean & Claudette in their Arctic Cat, & Denny & Susie in their Razor.  They came back all smiles & dusty so they must have had fun.

It was getting time for an early diner.  Molly fixed a   Santa Fe Soup and others brought their stuff.  So, here’s what we look like….DSC_0008
