Europa is getting a full top-end rebuild...new head, intake, exhaust gaskets, head bolts, valve guides, new water pump, thermostat, hoses, belts, etc....she should be good for 200K miles when I get her back on the road again.
Had new tires put on in Charlotte, NC and Dean rebuilt the front brakes in Gadsden, AL. So most of what is left to do is just "cosmetic" and normal "home" upkeep.
So I am feeling very good about the rest of the year...I just have to weather this little setback!! It has definitely changed my travel plans for the rest of the year, mainly due to the summer temps and weather in general...not to mention it has rather screwed up my budget!!! LOL!
Also spent a couple of days with the kids in NRH,TX. They are doing fine and the g'kids are just growing up WAY too fast! LOL!
