Despite all the issues with the Suburban, we had a pleasant surprise here in Lander. On a whim, we decided to work a small arts and craft show here in the city park. It was a one day event and LONG. It started at 10am and ended at 10pm. That translates into a 16 hour [read more by clicking on title]
Just after I change out the oil cooler line, change the filter, top off the transmission, transfer case, and rear differential- the transmission creaks, groans, screams, and we lose all our lower gears.
It drives, parks, goes into reverse, and shifts fine- but the days are numbered.

Ughh- I just finished installing a new oil cooler hose on the suburban. What a mess! It took me half a day yesterday and about half a day today to snake this four foot hose from the front of the engine compartment to the back of the oil pan.

It’s day seven of the Central Wyoming Fair & Rodeo in Casper, Wyoming. Three more days of work until we’re done but I’m wearing down. Each day I sleep a little later trying to catch up from the 8-14 hour days. It wouldn’t be so bad if I was really busy but half working and [read more by clicking on title]
We’re into day three of the Central Wyoming Fair & Rodeo. The Carnival opens before the rest of the Fair and Rodeo and we’ve been selling donuts and frozen drinks during the Carnival hours. We don’t have to but since people are here it’s an opportunity to make some more dough (pun intended). The actual [read more by clicking on title]
Time is our greatest asset but it is not necessarily our friend.
We’ve passed through three states now and we’re nestled into Casper, Wyoming for the Central Wyoming Fair and Rodeo. The show lasts a total of 9 days, the first 3 days are exclusively the carnival and then the rest of the fair [read more by clicking on title]
We’re pulling up stakes again and heading to Casper, Wyoming today. We’ve been in Grand Lake, Co for over a week now and it’s time to head on to the next show.
