"The Road Goes On Forever" are the lyrics to a favorite song that The Highwaymen did. For those of you who haven't heard of the group, they did 3 albums. The group consisted of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson.
Ahhh, now you know the group.
We are off the road and back to almost normal from some travels. It's nice to be home, but it was interesting to be on the road for a bit. It seems that the road gets longer each time we get on it for some reason.
Anyway in a nutshell, I am super glad that the temperature right now is 68 degrees at 7 in the evening. It got all the way up to about 78 yesterday and there was some rain today. During the drive we saw temp in the 110 range and on the coast 80's with humidity that was way too hot for comfort.
Funny how the humidity sure makes a difference.
What we did notice is that the army is out in force more than before, but we didn't get delay by any roadside checkpoints.
We got the green light at the first checkpoint and it was pretty smooth sailing the rest of the way. We did notice that the prices have increased on a few of the autopistas, but still are a great deal considering the quality of the roads and speed available.
We brought down a new satellite receiver which we will be working on in the next week or so. The receiver will use our old C band dish and has about 200 channels on one satellite, digital and has US programming.
We quit using the C Band dish about 9 or 10 years ago and now there are a few trees in the way which have grown up in line to the satellite we need to steer it to, so first we cut down a few 40 ft trees and then we can work on aiming the dish.
If anyone has on old C Band dish and want digital service let me know and I can put you in touch with the information on the service.
