I've Got A Secret

What did we do yesterday?  Rest assured, no bail money is needed.  If we tell you, it might ruin things for somebody else.  We wouldn't want to do that...right?

We're in Pensacola, Florida at the Blue Angels FamCamp for the next seven days.  We are on the wooded side (of two areas, the other is closer to the water) and for the first time in months, we had to drag out the portable satellite dish to get a TV signal, Marti has to have her American Idol.  I like that show like she likes museums, it's enough to make me want to go shopping.  :cO

A little problem has developed on the Element, yesterday at a fuel stop I did my routine starting of its engine to circulate the transmission fluid, I noticed a drip coming from it.  Yep, antifreeze.  Looking closely, it appears the radiator is leaking.  I picked up some stop leak at the store and put it in and topped off the antifreeze level.  So far, it appears to have stopped the leak until I can get it to a Honda dealer.  The nearest one is over 50 miles away.  We'll keep an eye on it and carry some extra antifreeze with us until we get to South Carolina.  I've been a stickler for maintenance and before we hit the road I had the radiator hoses and the water pump replaced.  Sometimes, you can't win.

So tomorrow we'll reveal why we're being so secretive. A hint:  It has to do with a red head (and it's not Marti).  Stay tuned, it'll be fun.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

    We love Pensacola and especially someone that's there. Take care enjoy yourselves. We certainly don't want to hear about problems. Well, it's not that we don't really want to hear about them. We just don't want you to experience them.
