Back on the Road

I just picked the VW up yesterday afternoon at the VW dealer in Bellingham, WA. It seems like they did a great job replacing the head gasket and testing all the components. This is the only time in my life I’ve paid someone to work on my vehicle (Ouch!). But, it works again, and I didn’t get dirty. Keith Cox Autobahn in Bellingham is letting me use his shop to get the van sale-worthy, and then he is going to consign it and help sell it. His idea of it’s value is right in-line with mine, and his commission is very fair, so hopefully things will work out with it. Today I just couldn’t stand it, and I went to BestBuy to get a new laptop. It is a bad-boy machine. Here’s the specs: HP Pavilion DV1000 Special Edition, 100gb HD, 1gb DDR memory, WideScreen WXGA display (beautiful), remote control, DVD/CD writer, and, it will actually etch the surface of CDs after they’re burned. YeeHah. Once I get my old Olympus camera in the mail, I’ll be back in the swing of things. I made sure to set up all the bios passwords I could, so whoever steals this one won’t be able to use it! Friday the 28th I’m flying from Seattle to Cordova, and I’ll be busy working in the shop up until then. Last night I camped west of Bellingham near Mt. Baker. Tonight, I’m heading towards the coast just south of here.

    Ditto from us, happy camping… Glad you’re ‘back on track’ and on your game plan, for now…
