Safe arrival - solo - Florida to S. California
Well, almost solo...Scooter, the Wonder Dog, did his normal sleep from pulling out to potty stop.
Nancy flew from Florida to LA on 1 August, and I headed West with the Monty that morning. 14 days, 10 en route stops, 2614 mi, Patrick AFB, FL, to Seal Beach, CA, to accommodate Nancy's recall for a short term (probably) job with her former employer, Boeing. Recalled 4 1/2 years after being laid off. Came as quite a surprise. Will make a significant difference in her retirement situation in a year or so.
Safe and sound, no problems with the Monty all the way. Had a minor leak in the turbo system of the Dodge, which I had fixed in Albuquerque.. Wouldn't have known it except for the "abnormal" higher EGTs and lower boost pressures I noticed at higher altitudes. Took a couple of days "extra" due to the extreme hot weather expected transiting the Mojave Desert. On the road at 0600 - 0630 each day to beat the heat.
Nice, brand new military FAMCAMP at Seal Beach Naval Sta. We will probably be here until mid-Sept, or maybe early Oct. 10 min with no freeway travel from Nancy's work....can't beat that!!
Looking forward to resuming our travesl soon.
