Wednesday January 31, 2018 Port Orford Oregon
Last night I was awake around 4AM so I went outside to see the moon.
This is what it looked like. A light fog was in, so I could barely make it out.
This was the best I could do with some zoom.
It was cool out so I didn’t stay out there very long and went back in to bed.
Heading for Oregon
This morning I got it going and put the last things in my van and I was off. Well almost, I stopped in town to gas up and hit the grocery store for a few things and then I was off.
Losing radiator fluid
About two hours into the trip I stopped for a break on the roadside at a pull off. After my break I was walking in front of the van and noticed a pool of coolant on the ground. The new add on coolant unit I installed was just breaking in the hoses. Seems when I install a new hose, it has to go through getting hot before I can tighten things up enough to seal things. Both hoses to the new unit where leaking. It must of just started as when I checked the fluid level in the radiator it was still full.
Arrived at my camp spot in Oregon
I arrived in my camp spot just below Port Orford about fifteen minutes around 8pm. I traveled 9 and a half hours. Not much to say about it. No rain and the weather was nice. I just kept plugging along until I made it to my destination. Of course it was dark when I arrived but no matter. I just had to park and hop in the back.
I will do some reading and then hit the hay.
Tomorrow I’ll drive on into Port Orford and see what’s going on.
That was it for a long driving day.
This is where I camped last night. It’s a rock supply place for the road department overlooking the Pacific Ocean, just south of Humbug State Park.
I’m now parked at the library for internet access.
