travel log on my way to Colorado
Why do I always pick the hottest days to drive through Vegas...
First stop, Sevier, Utah KOA. Nice stop in a park newly built on the river. A bit dusty, nice folks, and the best part...30 degrees cooler than Vegas!!
LIV would not go beyond 2000 RPM or 45 MPH peddle to the metal. So I pulled off in a rest stop, opened the hood thinking I had an oil leak or something, couldn't see anything obviously wrong, so I sat down with a cold beer (no not really...I don't drink when on the road :) with a cold glass of water and You Tubed Transit Van "decrease in speed". Sure enough, I found a video that explained if any lead parts are used on the frame, it will cause the system to think something is wrong and decrease speed until it is fixed to protect the engine. Well...take a look at the first pic. What do you see. YES! A blown out lead tire and YES I ran over a piece of it. I found it wrapped around my generator muffler so I removed it and hoped that was the problem. Yep it was! LIV took off like a rocket and all was good. Thank goodness for You Tube!
So much hay in Utah! Where's all the cattle?
Second stop, boondocking in the Vail area of Colorado. Beautiful...The next morning a hot cup of coffee and off to see the Georgetown Trains.
Meals on the road are not bad when I can mix a bit of frozen with fresh local products.
Had a beautiful trip through the Rocky Mountains, stopped many times to take in the view and made it Limon, Co in the evening where I stayed the night before I was to reach my next client.
