Bulldozer

Bulldozer!
Weng and Francisco's Hill Top Home and property is a work-in-progress. The road going from Aticama to Hill Top Home is very steep in parts. One of the things that Francisco wants very much to get done, is grading that road so that the steep parts are leveled out.

Jerry and Carolyn have bought a piece of land below Hill Top Home. Jerry is an experienced heavy equipment operator. Part of the deal that Jerry made with Francisco, is to do the road grading with a bulldozer that he would provide.

This morning Little Mavicita and Jorge are going up to Hill Top Home to watch Jerry run the bulldozer!

12 Noon - Pics of the road work.
Little Mavicita and Jorge have returned to MsTioga with pics of the road work for you to see! For much of the morning, Jerry has been using the bulldozer to straighten and level out the "S" curve. This curve is the hardest part of the road for an RV to ascend.

Jerry is also grading the hill to provide an access road to his newly purchased property where he and his wife Carolyn are to build their home.
Jerry begins the job.

1PM - MsTioga's radiator repair.
The TiogaRV Team is heading for Tepic. We have an appointment tomorrow at 8am in the service department of the Ford dealer. In order to make the appointment on time, we will Nite Camp in Tepic.

MsTioga has a small leak which appears to be coming from the radiator's tank. Besides the leak repair, there are some other maintenance jobs that need to be done.

Little Mavicita has received a request from Reader ArtClay for a pic of the tree tunnels. There are two tree tunnels that we drive thru on the curvy road to Tepic! We plan to take some tunnel tree pics!
