truck trouble - the mechanical kind....
i curse myself for not getting an oil change before i left oakland....grrrrr.... no one comes by, no one i want to approach that is. i decide to go for the 30 miles.
i make it to the flying j, rae's favorite truck stop. i buy oil & have to ask a small scrawny white boy for help lifting my cab - it weighs a TON & i can't lift it by myself. i start adding oil - it is about 2 1/2 quarts low. i have to ask someone if they know what is supposed to be in the plastic tank - no one knows but someone guesses radiator water.
i find the isuzu manual & sure enuff, it's the anti-freeze. i have to buy it & add it. now i'm worried - i do NOT want engine trouble, especially w/other folks treasures on my truck. the young man urges me to wait until tomorrow to start out - he says the road is desolat from here to laramie, 100 mile stretches with no one! my kind of road in the u.s.a.
i decide to head out & get an oil change asap. fingers crossed! peace, sam
