The days plan started innocently enough, a trip to the car wash to remove the accumulated top soil before the government declared PaT farm land and then a stop at Walmart. On arriving at the car wash the whole day went awry when I noticed the left front tire on PaT was in serious need of some air. After adding the air I decided to detour to Pep Boys to see what it would take to remedy the situation. On the way there I decided to go on and have the alignment checked, which was planned sort of killing two birds with one stone. They discovered nothing wrong with the tire, it was holding air fine, but they did discover part of the alignment hardware was missing. So $150.00 dollars later I was on my way. Next stop was Wally World and the happily accepted my donation and I finally arrived home at 3:30 pm., a 30 minute trip only took 6.5 hours.
Another step in the preparation process is out of the way though as we slowly approach departure day. Getting pre-trip checks finished is just another way of enjoying the good life.
