Generator box dropped!

Generator box dropped!
Yesterday evening it was noticed that Little Honda's generator box was not level. One end of the box was hanging down about an inch. On inspection it was found that the sheet metal screws that secure the box to MsTioga had let go!

This morning, the box was raised using our hydraulic jack. Then the holes for the sheet metal screws were drilled out to accept 1/4 inch bolts. The new bolts are secured with lock nuts!

MsTioga has onboard tools and supplies to make repairs like this.

Leaving Guanajuato.
This morning MsTioga and The Team are heading out of the City of Guanajuato. We all agree that this visit to Guanjuato was a fabulously good time!

MsTioga should reach the City of León today where our plan is to visit with our friends, Mauricio & Edith González and their family!

12 Noon - Chilis for hamburger!
MsTioga and The Team arrived in the City of León and made a bee-line for Chilis Restaurant. I have not had a good hamburger since last May! I ordered a bacon cheeseburger. Wow! Was it good!!

1:30PM - González home.
MsTioga is now Camped in front of the González family home. There are six in the family. Mauricio and Edith [Dad & Mom]. Machicho [17M], Monse [15F], Valeria [14F] and Sebastian [9M]. M=masculine F=feminine

Edith invited me to drive with her doing errands. Taking her kids to after-school activities and then shopping. I had a good time talking with Edith, who does not speak much English, but understands a lot of what is said in English.

We went shopping for some camels, and Edith bought two of them. I am not kidding!
