I put April in charge this time and she called around to several recommended mechanics in town and at least one of them said that on older (’92) vehicles, the check engine light doesn’t really check very much, and that it’s okay to ignore it. (We […]

We’re on the road again. Back in a more traditional outdoors nomadic mode. We’re on our way to Dancing Rabbit Community in Missouri, which was approximately 1400 miles from where we were about two days ago in Flagstaff, AZ. Today we traveled about 450 miles, arriving here at Meade Lake State Park in Kansas.
