September 29, 2014

5:30pm
This has not been the best day. My car is trying to be kaput. I got 2 stores serviced here in Woodland and was just about to head to Davis to get bunny greens from the co-op ... but, then my car started hesitating and sounded awful and the check engine light came on. I had to really baby it to keep it running long enough to get home. So, I got home and spent about an hour getting my eBike tuned up to head to Davis. Of course, I hadn't used it for a while, so hadn't charged the batteries recently ... so, a bit more pedaling than I liked! But, I got home fine and the critters won't starve. My neighbor, Martin, now has one of those code readers and hooked it up to the car to find out what was wrong. It is a malfunction in one of the ignitor circuits ... So, now, I have to figure out how I'm going to get that fixed ... in the mean time, I'm on the bus and my eBike for the foreseeable future. I'm probably going to have to give up at least one of my stores by next week because I can't get to them by bus (no connecting routes) and they are too far by bike ... That's my new Arbuckle store, for sure ... not sure about a couple of others.
