Gordon's Well Trip Report

Christmas - New Year's Eve 2005

We left Northern California at 5 AM on the day after Christmas heading for Gordons Well. Our first stop was unfortunately an unplanned one at Cummins West in Fresno.

The "Low Coolant" light came on about 6 AM.  Pulled over at a rest stop, and sure enough it was low.  Put two gallons in the overflow tank and found the leak at the coolant filter. We kept driving while making calls to see if we could stop and get it fixed.  Cummins West in Fresno has emergency services available.  Since his was a holiday, they had to call a tech in to do the work.  Three hours later and a $450 bill on my credit card, we were on the road again.  Not a good way to start the trip.

Digging out after getting the rail stuck
Here I am teaching the fine art of digging out.

While at Gordons Well, I hooked up with Justin from Revenge Racing.  He spent some time tuning the suspension on my car.
