Merry Christmas !

We woke up and had had our normal Uncle Herschel's breakfast at Cracker Barrel where we spent the night.   After breakfast we got under way for our 180 mile trip to Livingston, TX.

You are a red neck if you still have your Christmas signs up.  It’s called normal in this neck of the woods.DSC_0002 DSC_0004

Now do you have a drive thru liquor store?  That just don’t seem to go together.DSC_0005

We stopped at a Pilot to get DEF at the pump for $2.79 gallon.  We had to drive into a big truck pump area backwards, opposite the normal direction.  Our DEF tank is on the passenger side and the DEF pump is on the driver side.  Thus drive thru in the opposite direction.  The truck stop was slow so it was no problem.  I also filled up the two 2 1/2 gallon portable containers.  I added 4 gallons in the RV DEF tank and earlier added the two 2 1/2 gallon containers.  So, that means overall the RV DEF is lasting about 4 gallons per 1,000 miles.  Since the RV DEF tank is 13 1/2 gallons.  We can go 3,000 miles on a tank and that is a very rough estimate.

In Onalaska we got fuel for $3.53 a gallon.  I jammed it in.  In Livingston the fuel is $3.59.DSC_0007

We got to our lot about noon.  It was 80 degrees and 90% humidity.  Whew…. we gone from a dry heat to a wet heat. DSC_0011  

The power steering gasket is still leaking.  I will order the gasket and install it myself in the next few weeks.  No bigee hopefully.  DSC_0010 DSC_0009DSC_0008
