Air Filter, Getting Ready and Dinner

DeBary, FL.

53 deg. clear, no wind.

Forecasts = Partly sunny. Highs in the upper 70s. South winds 10 to 15 mph.

Once Jim went outside yesterday morning, he got out a few tools and removed my old engine air filter and installed this new one.

As you can see, it's very large and the filter element is permanently fastened inside of the canister. And as you may imagine, it's also quite expensive.

It's really not too hard to install though, and in about an hour and a half, Jim was finished and putting away his tools.

After he finished with the filter, he drug the tow bar out from under me and re-installed it on the front of CLT.

After lunch, Jim took a little nap before going out and putting some more water in my fresh water tank.

Besides doing some laundry, Linda has been starting to get the inside of me ready to travel. It's amazing how much stuff has been gotten out during our 2 month stay here. And as you RVers know, everything has to be put back in its proper spot so everything fits and stays where it's supposed to while we're traveling down the road.

Being that Laura has to work all weekend, Jim and Linda made arrangements to meet her, Lindsey and Ashley for dinner at the Perkins Restaurant. It will probably be the last time that they'll be able to spend much time together before we leave, although as I understand it, Ashley may stop by here on Sunday, and Jim and Linda may try to meet up with Laura Sunday evening after she gets off work.

The evening was spent doing the usual stuff.

Did you know that on this date in1954, The Nautilus was launched in Groton, CT? It was the first atomic-powered submarine. U.S. First Lady Mamie Eisenhower broke the traditional bottle of champagne across the bow.
