BoggsMobile Update and Travel


For most of you these pictures of valves from the air brake system in the bus may be boring but that is exactly what our life is sometimes, boring. The second half of Yesterday's Post tells all about our boring day on Tuesday.

We arrived at Prevost Houston facility about 6:30 this morning and they directed me into the bay right on time at 7:00. When they got the BoggsMobile in the air the only leaks they could hear or see were in two valves that control the air flow for the brakes on the drive axle and tag axle on passenger side. They had pointed out these were leaking some on Tuesday but they did not recommend replacement then.

They seemed to be leaking much more today.

The bus is holding air pressure much better although it is going down a little lower than normal. At least I do not seem in danger of losing pressure and being stranded along side the road.

I did not get any pictures of the RV Park we stayed in Tuesday night but it was pretty full and the spaces were terribly close together. The motorhome to our right was parked about 10 feet from the engine on the BoggsMobile. I hated to crank the engine before 6:00 AM but it had to be done. I let it run about 10 minutes and then I pulled up into the parking lot so those sleeping folks could have a break. I am so sorry folks.

We left Prevost a little after 9:00 and drove about 90 miles or so to Beech Creek Assembly near Livingston, Texas. Bro. Don Goodwin is the Pastor and we are looking forward to getting acquainted with him and his folks this week.

After we were parked and set up we ate lunch and have done as much of nothing as we could possibly do this afternoon. I needed a little time to decompress from all of the stress of the last four days. As I am typing this it is time to set up the PA and get ready for church. I feel amazingly better than I did. I am looking forward to seeing what the Lord is going to do among His people tonight!

Thank you all for praying for us the last few days. Our little problems are nothing compared to what some of our friends are going through right now but they are still our problems. I appreciate you holding us up before God. May He bless you for it.
