Fresh Oil and Filter

OK, the ride date is getting nearer. Today I put in fresh Mobil 1 10-40 and a new oil filter in preparation for the upcoming trip. Looks like it is going to be a hot one with the first few days forecast highs in the upper 90s.

Our goal is to get an early start each day and be at our destination for the "heat of the day" gets too intense. We make lots of stops along the way for gas and to take a drink. Having the ice chest on the Bushtec loaded with water, lemonade and soft drinks makes it much easier.

This evening I will begin packing the trailer (tools), airing up the tires and starting the pre-ride checklist.
