    Yesterday we went to Arkansas City Kansas to look at houses and we got a leak in radiator that boiled all the coolant out. We were stuck for three hours before could get the truck started again, made it to Newkirk OK and spent the night. We are in Ponca City to repair the leak and should be back on the road in about a hour. Hopefully we won't have any more trouble on the way home. Seems like if it's one thing or another that makes our days challenging. Haha

    Bad news for our truck, it has a blown head gasket. We made it home about six pm thanks to a friend. The truck is still in Ponca City and will be towed back to Broken Arrow for repairs paid by the dealer after the holiday so we will get a rental car tomorrow morning. Really glad it's still under warranty. Needless to say it's been a couple of stressful days but we're home safe and that's all that matters.

    This afternoon I used caulking to attach rock castings and going to do scenery this evening.

    This morning I applied plaster around the rock castings to blend them with the mountains on the south end of module 08, left. Still have a few rock castings to blend on the north end, right, and gorge but will leave them for another day.

    Next step is painting the foam and rock castings then sift real dirt and ground foam on top. Cynthia made a lot of trees for this module.

    The two foot long steel trestle should arrive later this week.

    Yesterday afternoon I planted more trees, also placed vegetation over the joint between modules 07 and 08 to hide it.

    Still need to paint the rock castings some more.

    I received the steel trestle this afternoon and I'm in the process of putting the kit together. Man there's a lot of pieces.

    The last few days I've had problems with my legs so haven't been able to work on the layout but feeling a little better today.

    I've spent the last two evenings removing flash from the bridge parts, have everything ready to assemble now. There was a lot of flash and the instructions are not that great. Luckily have experience building bridges.

    I've been sick with a stomach flu for the last week and haven't worked on anything. Today wasn't too bad so I hope it's just about over.
