Due west of Helena lies the little town of Elliston. My aunt lives out here and offered up a free place to park. Who can turn that down? Coming out of Helena we were eyeballing the hill in front of us. It's already 90° out and Roo doesn't like the heat. The hills are a steep climb and the temp guage jumps up almost immediately. We stop, unhook Shirley again and press onward. The rest of the pass is made at 25mph in 2nd gear just to keep the motor from overheating.
There's got to be something I'm missing. The RV has the power, but the temp skyrockets under boost. I'll be giving the CAC (cold air charger) another thorough cleaning to try and dislodge any debris that may have been missed. The last attempt was half hearted.
Upon our arrival we're greeted by a rough 100 yard lane with big chunks of gravel in the way. The only way up and into the driveway is to back it in. It took a few minutes, but came through without an issue.
I'll finish up my work here and get ready to do nothing for the rest of the afternoon. Our busted mirror replacement is supposed to be delivered here today so long as UPS can find us. This place is around the bend and them some.

I'm just a guy, with a wife, a dog, and three cats. Watch us travel the country.
