I don't recall, but I wasn't looking last time.

Google maps thinks that diesel isn't quite as close: https://www.google.com/maps/search/d...5!2d35.2684149

There is a new gas station that opened up since last year. 13 miles from the lodge, they've got diesel.

Crunch time. I'm seeing several questionable cars successfully making final preparations. Who's not ready?

Did what I could tonight before laying down and passing out. Still a bit more to do in the am, but we'll be fine.

See (some of) y'all tomorrow.

I'm going to check out a rear suspension clunk tommorow. Other than that I'm just going to bring a bunch of spare spark plug wires and some tools.

I gotta put the R on the lift tomorrow after work and check out the rear suspension sensors, and do a check on the a/c charge level.

Mixed up the rub, making bbq sauce right now.

I already changed my oil, checked tire pressures and all that. gotta run thro a car wash and vacuum out the interior, but most of that will take place on the way home tomorrow.
