    Well that's good news! You traveling I mean, not the starter situation. I'm in the middle of tourist season here in Cooperstown so all I've been doing is working and gathering parts I need/want. Just have to get through August and this current bout of Mercury In Retrograde and I should be in decent shape getting my rig running in Sept. ~ peace and good luck to you, glad you are traveling.
    What's up Smudge? How's the part situation? Hope this finds you well ~ peace
    All three of the parts I've been waiting on for my van just arrived! And all three were wrong.

    It's a few, the fuel sender, air filter, spark plugs, spark leads, distributor cap, and a rotor button. The mecahnic quoted me $980 but I got everything online and at parts places for $360, no joke. It's what I get for being a woman with pride stickers on her van I guess, people assume they can fuck me over.

    Just being a woman without pride stickers or anything else. I know of a few garages in the us run by women only. The founder is putting a lot back into it to teach other women. Mechanical work is not hard at all if you have a good teacher, The electrical can be tricky but still doable. Kinda like Chefs don't bake and Bakers don't cook. Similar trades but a whole different game. Best of luck to ya. ~ peace
