Steve and I have been traveling since April 17. We headed north for Flagstaff, Arizona, and it was cold. We continued west to Holbrook, Arizona, and it was cold. We should have expected it, but we didn’t. We were uncomfortably chilly but not dangerously so. Albuquerque was also cold, but we had something else to think about: Getting the Jeep operating again!
An AAA mechanic came to our campsite but he could not install a new battery. The problem had to do with our battery being encumbered with equipment pertaining to our tow bar. I will make a long story short. We towed our non-starting Jeep from Albuquerque, New Mexico, to Santa Rosa, New Mexico, and then to Amarillo, Texas. Steve contacted a Jeep dealership in Amarillo, and they connected him to F/X Motors Sports, which enterprise had staff that knew how to solve the situation in a few hours. Success!
Now we are camped in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. We appreciate the blessing of having our Jeep that runs again. Instead of remaining in our campground with a dead battery, we went to Bricktown, an entertainment district in Oklahoma City. We walked along the canal among all the other people having a good time. We snapped a few photos and walked back to Bricktown Brewery, where we enjoyed beer and pizza.
