A new fall day dawns, bright, sunny & warm!
I decide I will sort one or two bags at each rest area we stop at - so after we play, eat breakfast, and play some more, I bring a bag to the picnic table to sort while he lines up his race cars and airplanes.
I am devastated, going thru the first bag. Beans and flax seeds are smushed in with papers, flyers, empty containers and envelopes, spices, and vitamins.
I sort everything, pulling out clothes and towels first, then making stacks of things I have to toss, things to go back into different drawers, etc.
Jasi is so independent and happy, content to play, eat, and stay here all day.
He also cooperates when I tell him we need to get on the road, jack! He fills up his water bottle, washes his airplane, climbs into his car seat. I notice shiney spots shimmering from last nite's rain, under the front of my truck & make a note - I don't remember last nite - or in the wee hours of the morning when I stopped here - if the pavement was oily.
I check the dipstick and see that it is a quart low. Then I see that the overflow tank of the radiator is totally dry.
I have been thinking about both the heat indicator and the fuel compression - I think that for a new engine and radiator, the engine shouldn't be running as hot as it is. I hope I am wrong.
