We're coming to the end of our travels, for now. The next-to-last stop on the tour has been the Boston area, where I had some business in town and we had a few friends to catch up with. Unfortunately, our Internet-in-Motion box has croaked, so I've had to get online with other methods. (The box will be replaced via FedEx this week -- good customer service!) This has delayed the blog a bit.
On the other hand, I am in broadband land now. Our hosts, who are providing parking for Vintage Thunder, have given us free run of their house and use of their cable modem. In town, there's wi-fi aplenty.
I took the commuter rail into Boston yesterday and sat in the shadow of Faneueil Hall (downtown) for an hour people-watching and catching up on business on a glorious morning. It was one of those perfect Boston days, sunny but not hot or cold, a light warm breeze blowing plenty of fresh air from the sea. It was a day that everyone in a cubicle should have called in sick and spent the day walking the fascinating and varied streets of Boston.
Two more stops on this tour to come, and then we'll stop for some upgrades and repairs. The belly skin has a small section where some rivets have torn out (toward the front), and I am going insane from the noise of our Flojet water pump. (It's not a Shurflo as I incorrectly posted earlier.) We may adjust or replace it. The battery needs replacement. We also need to finalize some trim and caulking and replace the weatherstrip on the entry door. All of these things have been on the list for a while -- it's time to get to them.
