Cannonball Stage 8
Today my carb broke 3 miles from the start, I got lost and therefore saw a bonus 30 mile section of Arkansas, the bike ran out of gas twice and I missed a the best catered lunch of the rally thus far. It was a great day! The bike went the distance, with no trouble other than the roadside carby repair with a soldering torch. (thanks for the solder & flux Eric!). The roads are great, with some good twisties up and over Mt Magazine, 2 lane country roads from nowhere to nowhere, but always moving westward toward the Pacific.
We’ve been on the road long enough that I’ve lost track of what day it is, what the date is, or what town we are in or where we are going tomorrow. Not a single thought about work has crossed my mind in days. This is starting to become the cross country experience that I had expected.
Brown and Barlow float lid. Needle is activated by the bob weights, which are lifted by the float. New pins and safety wire did their job, but the solder failed this morning. Fixed on the side of the road.
