on the road...again!

My boys are on the road-- again!

 Junior bought himself a truck and they have traveled to Salmon Arm, British Columbia.

But the trip has not gone smoothly. 

I am sure you all have experienced the same feeling of foreboding that something bad is going to happen. 
Young Frank woke up at 3:45 am yesterday morning with that feeling. His mind was working overtime and he remembered that he hadn't re-torqued his tires. He had changed his winter tires over for his summer driving tires. At 4.15 am he was re-torquing his tires.

They left at 5.10 am

But that wasn't the problem. 

Turns out the truck started to vibrate going through the mountains. The vibrating didn't get any worse but it caused young Frank to stress a little. They stopped in Kamloops hoping something was open. Nothing was. So they made the executive decision to continue on their way to Salmon Arm. They made it there without any further incident, loaded the new truck onto the trailer and got themselves a hotel room.

They went to the local Canadian Tire and it turns out that Frank's u-joints, all had to be replaced. 
They now are on they home. Back through the mountains. 

They are calling for more snow!
