And here in a nutshell,is why America is where she is today, https://crooksandliars.com/2019/07/interview-trump-supporter-shows-just-how, Imagine 30 million voters like her and she is just average. AVERAGE! that means there are like 15 million voters more stupid than her...GET THE FUCK OUT, AND VOTE BLUE!!! Signed, the rest of the world, (Except Russia and China because you are now weak with stupid leaders).
The world is hopeful America can pull out of this nosedive...Except for Russia and China because of the sheer stupidity of the elected and appointed leaders makes America weak and stupid, oh so very stupid.
Cheap things to have for long distance cruising
A camping egg container. Hard plastic (Ooo, I know plastic) for storing eggs. Not needed in North America, but elsewhere, where the eggs are not washed, they will store un-refrigerated for over two weeks on the counter. So I have been told. My dozen eggs don’t last me 4 days as I am a voracious egg consumer.
My cholesterol levels are awesome.
Zip-loc bags, ALL sizes! From sandwich sized to store and transport cell phones, medium sized ones to transport ipads and/or tablets and giant ones to store precious chart books. Buy boxes of them!
Ask us what has happened to our ipad and one or two cell phones....And a DRL camera, though we had no bag around to contain that camera, R.I.P.
The wife and take a night time swim in our resort and marinas pool and tonight we were dive bombed by a bat, don't know what genus but this species; vampire bats, is super cool. Oh, and a possum walking by the pool freaked my wife out.
Finally got around to taking apart our exhaust system to see if there was any build up that would account for the Mighty Perkins running hot. There was. Not a whole lot, but enough to make some back pressure that would impede the cooling system from working properly.
To clean the hardened soot and carbon is going to take elbow grease, a screwdriver and wire brushes. This will be tedious, sweaty work in this Guatemalan heat. Oh, I also broke the gasket removing the exhaust elbow.
The barbs that the exhaust hose slid on, connecting the elbow to the muffler were corroded, still serviceable but in the next year or two I am going to have to replace both items $$$$.
Getting the get up and go to get up and work is hard. This heat just beats you down. Two minutes in and you’re a pile of sweat, glasses slide off your nose and tools slip in your hands.
After I get this done, I want to remove the injectors, put a few drops of oil down the cylinders and turn the engine over by hand to free up the piston and any frozen rings, after all, the beast has been sitting idle for 9 months now.
On the plus side, I found a program that allows the laptops Linux system to download books to our 2 kindles. With over 4000 books on the laptop it is good, and I mean really good to get some of them on an easy to use platform we both can use. I am reading “The Forever War”.
