Well today hasn't really been such a great day.
We left this morning - the 31st @ 6:30 after another fine breakfast. We headed toward Yellowstone a mere 156 miles from Landers, WY.
Things didn't go as planned. The south entrance of Yellowstone was closed and we discovered we had quite the oil leak.
We decided to head toward Jackson Hole, WY. Unknown to us last night there was a snow storm, and the pass recieved 4 to 6 feet of snow. They plowed the road but there was still too much snow for us! (Hopefully I will be able to attach the snow pictures.)
Finally made it there (Jackson Hole) but there was no place to work on the truck.
So we headed to Idaho Falls, ID, found a Ford dealer, and they are replacing a high pressure pump. They said it would be ready around 11 or 12 on the Thursday. From here we have only 2800 miles left.
Idaho Falls is a pretty nice city and the WIND IS NOT BLOWING.

We are thinking we will be able to get to the Canadian border tomorrow night.

  1. I have a question. Did you take some scales with you? Because you mention eating in every blog so I KNOW that you guys have put on some weight. You need to get your butt back to work. Today (Thursday) has been the WORST DAY OF MY LIFE. I don't know if I'm going to make it 3 more weeks + 1 day. And by the way....your retirement has been cancelled due to lack of interest on my part! So just put away the retirement papers cause it ain't gonna happen!! Understood???? But regardless of my bad day, I sure hope you are having a great time! pains me to say that!
