Tentative Van Decision
I picked up the van and my mechanic and I went over its issues. In the short term, it's safe to use. He pointed out something that could become a problem down the road. Rather than take a chance that the bad thing happens when I'm two thousand miles from home, I'll probably put it up for sale this summer.
Before I do, I've got a lot of hauling to do. I've a utility trailer full of junk that needs to go to the transfer station. A friend has offered me about three cord of oak firewood for cost of taking it away. I'd also like to make a trip to the lumber yard and pick up materials for some building projects. Once those projects are done, I could let the van go.
We've had it for seven years. Considering it was ten years old when we got it, that's not too bad. Heck, I could drive a new car into the ground in seven years, never mind a used vehicle.
Since we've been back I've been putting in some long days. In fact, I don't think I'm getting enough sleep. There's no excuse for that. After all, I'm supposed to be retired. Really don't know when I found time to go to work.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
