Good evening.

Truck: Well the truck is in the body shop, hoping for the best and a speedy return.

Exercise: I rode the bike around a bit today to work off a little nervous energy, just 2 or 3 miles.

While out I spoke to a fellow that I had seen here last year and he has a Electric Bike that he wants to sale. It is one of the heavy duties ones with the flat tires(large round tires for sand/rocks) but I don’t think I want one that is for that rough of an area, I kind of like an all-terrain type bike. But I took it for a ride and I thought about it. I had never rode one and was surprised at the power it had.

Have a nice evening folks.

Water

Pictures: Just yet another wild flower.

Truck: Today I unloaded all the stuff in the back of the truck so the bed could be worked on at the body shop. I keep a lot of stuff back there, mostly tools.

Exercise: I did my exercise this morning and will take a couple days off now, the exercise page has been updated.

That’s all for today, please have a nice day, there is a limit number of them for each of us.

Tomorrow

I am not doing a photo today but I will be back tomorrow. I have been running all over the place getting things ready for being without the truck for a while, hopefully not more then 5 days.

I did do my exercise this morning but other then that, I have just been on the road, running.

Mirror: Yet another bad mirror from the parts house ( O’Reilly Auto Parts). Went in today and picked up the second one, put it on the truck in the parking lot and tried out all the power movements (power Mirror) and all that worked okay, but then as I took off down the road I notice it was not straight while up in the towing positions so back to the parts house and the replacement is on order 😣😞 Nuts!!!

Exercise: Wearing off a little energy in the mornings is a good thing about now, exercise page updated.

Night Folks

Road Running: I went into Grants today to pick up a Mirror that was broke in the accident, after calling to ensure that it was there. When I got there I open the box to make sure it was the right part and it was but …. it was broken, soooo, a wasted trip.

Exercise: I did my walk, updated the exercise page.

Accident

Pictures: Yesterday morning I left the park to head into Grants for some shopping and odds and ends, about 5 miles from the park I passed a state highway truck going in the opposite direction and a large piece of metal flew off of it and hit my truck. Took a long time for the police to get there to file a report.
So then I spend the rest of the day making reports and working with the state highway department filing claims, getting estimates and such.
It will take the highway department 4 to 6 weeks to process the claim. I need my truck so I went to the bank, got the money to fix it and set up an appointment for next Monday at the body shop. The cost estimate was $2500.00 and time to fix the truck estimate is 5 days.
I was both lucky and unlucky. I was lucky that I was not a second or two later to the spot where the piece of metal hit me because it would have come through the windshield and badly hurt or kill me, weee, close one!!! Unlucky in that I was passing by the state truck when the metal piece came off.
