A Holiday in the Rockies

As Thelma is not ready to leave, and Dave, the mechanic is driving up to the Rockies tonight to go to the Horizons Unlimited meeting at Nakusp. I have told him I'll drive up with him and catch up with friends there, before coming back on Sunday to hopefully then continue east towards Labrador on Monday. Fingers crossed.

The good news is that the gearbox is not as bad as we feared - the circlip on the output shaft had come off and oil had escaped out pf the gearbox through there. It was not something that I could have forseen which makes me feel much better about it, and in fact he said I did very well to realise there was something wrong as quickly as I did and to stop. Otherwise the there would have been considerable damage.
