Cool and crisp this morning. I hope to get the overflow hose installed on the coach this morning and will also start up the refrigerator so we can start to load up for our New England trip. We are also getting ready for the long Labor Day weekend. Here in WNY that signals the end of summer. The kids go back to school and people close up their pools. By the time we return the leaves will be falling and we be be thinking about winterizing the coach.
I went out late this morning to finish up the overflow hose. I got the tools and parts together and looked over the situation.

Bonnie had left for Warsaw before I got back she was going to pick up some engine antifreeze and a radiator cap. She ended up going to NAPA 3 times. I even talked to them on the phone explaining that I needed HD plane jane green antifreeze. They said ok we got it. So what did they send with Bonnie extended life organic acid based antifreeze. Now we have the expense of returning it. The good news is that the new radiator cap fit.
Bonnie left almost as soon as she got home to stay with her Dad this evening so her mother can have an evening out. I talked to my son, daughter in law, and granddaughters for almost an hour. Also my daughter a couple times regarding getting her internet modem replaced tomorrow. Not sure I can help as UPS freight is to pick up the old HydroHot tomorrow.
Bonnie got home a little after midnight, I am still up. Now we are off to bed.
I did not sleep that well last night even though it is nice and cool. Up this morning and now waiting on a UPS freight truck to pick up the old HydroHot.
I worked a little in the garage mixing the extra boiler coolant so it is 50/50 by using the refractometer.

I left for Warsaw to exchange the antifreeze. Have you bought antifreeze lately. Not sure how many different kinds there are but there are many. I was looking for one with a ASTM Spec of 4985. I found it and it is for heavy duty diesel engines. The bottle is labeled as for cars and light duty trucks. But since it meets the standards I should be ok. Its quite a trip to get into Warsaw now since there is a detour in effect as they are working on 20A in the village. Bonnie called as I was heading home and she is headed home also. Looks like I am doing chicken on the grill for supper.
The chicken turned out good and we spent the evening relaxing and now off to bed early.
Another nice cool night and boy did I sleep good. Got up after 8 hours of sleep and caught up on blogs and emails. I headed outside. I finally decided to wash the rig. I have been asking for help all summer but the others always had something else more important to do. Its hard on my shoulders but it had to be done. I could not stand the film on it anymore. I started around noon. One side and the back were in the shade so I started there. By the time I finished that the other side was in the shade.
|Wow this thing is big|
|Nice and shiny|

|Headed for the washing machine|
I heard it rain a couple times during the night. Must have been hard as it woke me up. When I checked the gauge it showed about 1/3 of an inch. We got going and headed to church. Today was youth Sunday as it is the 5th Sunday. It was good to hear whats been going on with the youth. Alexus was even up on the platform, she did a really good job.
After church we headed for Firemans Field in East Aurora, the same place we camped a few weeks ago. It was a Firetrucks and Food Truck event and fund raiser. We had lunch there. I had a burrito and Bonnie had a Taco Salad. My back has been hurting me the past couple of days and I stayed in the car while Bonnie picked out our lunch.
From there we headed in to Buffalo RV to see our friend Ron who is working there now and to look at some of the Jayco rigs. While nothing really spoke to us and it sure was humid. So we headed home in a light rain and now maybe I can get in a nap. Well I got the nap and now I am wide awake for the NASCAR race.
Thats about it for this week.
Thanks For Checking In!
