Thursday 8.3.17 was a lazy day. Leaving our home base at the base of Kenai Fjords was hard to do. It was a beautiful spot next to the river that makes boondocking dreams come true. Roo pointed north and hustled her fat ass towards Anchorage once more. We made it about half way there when we decided to call it a day. Between mile marker 58 and 59 there was a turnout on the west side of the highway that had a giant rock in the way. Rock= noise reducer. This would be perfect for the night. Limited highway noise and a chance to do a little work. Don't let the painted pavement fool you, this was a piece of old obsolete highway that was a designated parking spot.
Time to get down to bizz-nazz. Roo has a problem with leaking gravel dust into the bedroom over long stretches of dusty road. I pulled the rubber barrier around the radiator down and found some cracks between the metal structure and fiberglass. This was most likely the cause of the dust in the bedroom. Last week I bought two tubes of roofing tar in anticipation of this project. Why roofing tar? It sticks to everything even when it's dirty. It will flex with the RV and can stay pliable in all temperatures. We'll see how it goes....
