I don't think it's what he wanted to hear. Actually, it's exactly what I wanted to hear. That meant I did not have to waste my time taking off the head to see if the problem was only a gasket.

We left Saturday to play in Colorado before going on to Moab. My engine suffered a catastrophic failure in Abilene Kansas. :pissed: I removed the #1 sparkplug, and it spurts water out when it turns over. This after I broke my ass doing a tub-clip swap to get ready. Smuz drove 300 miles to rescue us ...

I'm sure that you could find somewhere to park your LJ in Moab and pick it up on the way back.

My Wife does not like to wander around outside at night looking for a place to pee. She also likes a private shower, and a real queen-size bed with linens. A kitchenette is nice, and so is access to a hot tub. How about within walking distance to Restaurants, Movie Theater, Shopping, Grocery Store, ...
