We did have one pressing chore that needed to get done today and that was get the oil changed in the truck. There were lots of speedy oil change places near our campground all advertising 30 minute oil change for $22. This is lovely for a car but the price changes considerably for a truck that takes 15 quarts of oil. We chose Auburn Autohaus to do the job. They could take us at 11am and do it for $90. With a name like Autohaus I was expecting strudel or something but only coffee was evident. The man running the operation was very outgoing and really seemed to like what he was doing. We did have to wait about a half hour while they finished up with a Mercedes that was on the only lift capable of holding the truck. But there were magazines and coffee and a fun collection of model cars to look at while we waited.
Another thing accomplished today was a whale wash to remove all the road krill. We had managed to accumulate quite a collection of critter carcasses over the last 4,000 miles and it was time to do something about them. Many campgrounds don't allow you to wash your rig but it is hard to find a car wash big enough. So you have to take advantage of the opportunity when it presents itself. I helped by staying out of the way in the shade.
God speed dear sister and brother. I miss you already.
