The Easiest Fix Yet

We’re on our way again. Here’s what happened. There was a cap that failed that was on an unused oil port in a very obscure hard to see and reach position. John was able to find it and use a steel epoxy to plug ite.

We will stop by a Detroit Diesel shop to pick up some more oil in about an hour. We are about 7 or 8 hours from home, but we plan to stop on the west side of St. Louis tonight.

Thanks for praying!


“That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ” (1 John 1:3).

  1. Well done, John. What a blessing your skills are to your family. It appears to have been quite the wet and greasy trip for you. Your willingness to assist and persist in times of trouble is a wonderful encouragement.

  2. Thank you for sharing the “trials” yall experience. It would be so easy to think of your family as everything always goes smoothly. It’s encouraging to see how you persevere through them.

  3. Oh how wonderful! It is always such a relief when it is something minor. I checked your blog last night before bed and was so glad to see that you all were okay. God certainly answers prayer!

  4. Hi, I am really impressed with everyones willingness to pitch in cheerfully on all the jobs required on the trip! How does John know so much about fixing buses? It certainly is an amazing blessing for your family that he is so good at it!
    All of life is on the job training. The bus’ manufacturer (MCI) has a great tech support department and we have purchased the manuals for it. In depth motor and transmission work does require a trip to the shop.
