    Default Pre trip maintenance chores

    I am getting ready for a trip in a couple of days. In doing my inspection I found that my right tire is wearing on the inside. Since there are no laser alignment facilities near me I decided to try an experiment. I found and emailed the alignment specs to my local tire dealer. Since he races cars and regularly does toe in alignments on his race cars he agreed to try to align Charlotte. I think he did a pretty good job as I could tell a difference in how she felt. The new tires will be here today and he will mount those. I am also changing the oil,it's just a bit early but so what.In the process of doing that I decided to take a look at the little hoses that feed the MAS. Sure enough I found the one going to the rear cyl. was cracked. I also too off the front one. Very strange it seemed to be made of some clear plastic like fuel line or aquarium air line. It was not cracked or even weathered. I decided to replace them both anyway so all would be equal. Actual oil change will take place tonight then I will take Charlotte over to get her new shoes on Wed. I am so excited about this trip I can hardly stand it.
    I leave Thurs for Rexburg Id to see my sister. From there it's on to Billings and Beartooth Pass then back to Wyo and Thermopolis, Martins Cove,Independence Rock and anything else I can fit in and back on Thurs the 16
