Leak

Day 47
Les Schwab Tires

7:30am - Scampy and The Team are at Les Schwab in Lincoln City. In yesterday's Blog post, we wrote to you that we found out that one of Honda's tires seems to have a slow leak.

Besides having the leak repaired, Scampy asked for her tires to be rotated. It may not be absolutely necessary for Scampy's tires to be rotated. Even so, it' a good idea, don't you think?

➜ Honda's right-rear tire had a screw sticking thru it.
➜ Scampy's tires were at 40 psi. They were topped off to 50 psi.
➜ Scamp's fresh water tank was filled at Les Schwab.

10:30am - Heading to Salem
It's cooled down a bit in Salem. Today's high is only 74℉. Last weekend in Salem the high was 100℉.

I wonder if Tránsito missed us?

1:15pm - Back with Tránsito
We just checked out Tránsito. Everything OK with him.

On the drive from Lincoln City, we happened upon a scale alongside the highway:
➜ MsScampy weighs 1,700 lbs
➜ Little Honda weighs 3,100 lbs


3:30pm - Annie Lennox
My youngest child [who will reach the age of 50 this year!] turned me on to Annie Lennox, singer and songwriter. "Don't Let It Bring You Down"

I bought that song on iTunes. I like it! Now it resides on my iPhone.

6:30pm - Insurance for Tránsito
Do you recall that we could not get insurance for Tránsito because of a proof of address thing?

Yesterday, for some unexplained reason, all of that Proof Of Address stuff just went away. Poooof! Gone!

We obtained the insurance from Progressive. This is the same insurance company insuring MsTwayler and MsScampy.

Tránsito is expensive to insure because he is rated as a commercial vehicle. That's what the insurance company told us.

  1. When you sent out your 2016 Christmas greetings, among others you included Ms. Scampy in the greeting. Today you refer to Scampy getting "his" tires rotated. What gives? Is Scampy masculine or feminine or both?

    1. You got me there! MsTioga was a lady. I guess Scampy is a lady too!

    1. Hi Vera,

      In Spanish, the name "Tránsito" is for a male.

      If that name were for a lady, it would be Tránsita.

      So, now you know. Our new tow vehicle is a man! 😎

  4. Pretend that you want to a miner for bitcoins
    This should give you an idea how bitcoins work


    This is only the paper version of it. if you try to become a miner
    You better have some serious computer skills and spendable money
    The computer hardware that you need to run becomes increasingly expensive the more you get into it. The more you need
    The second question you would need to ask is how much computer hardware and what kind you need to get started
    Getting coins is somewhat easy bu The cost associated with keeping them is where it gets expensive if you're not creative

    4. Mister ed,

      I am only at the retail level of cryptocurrency.

      At this level, I have nothing to do with ledgers, accounting, etc.
