XL – Alton Holding

Thursday September 25, 2014

Today is laundry day. Mary Lynn is using her machine on board and I am packing the laundry off to the dryers at the Marina Office. This is a trip of about 8 miles (it seems) uphill both ways. The boat looks like a yard sale. We are preparing the boat for our guests. Mary Lynn’s brother Allan and his wife Anne will be joining FRACAS for a couple of weeks. We have rented a car for a few days to explore St. Charles and the St. Louis area. We are planning to get out of here and head off to Hoppies on Monday.

I have a few filters and a buzzer to find today if possible. No west marine here but apparently the O’Reilly’s and NAPA have some marine stuff I hope.

We were picked up by the Enterprise guy and we have rented a beautiful HNNNDI SNOTTAH or Snottah for short. We stopped at several auto parts suppliers and were unable to find the filters that FRACAS needs for her fuel system. We ordered what they had listed and they should be here Friday afternoon for pickup.

Tomorrow morning we will be off to the airport to pickup Allan and Anne . Some pics of our trip down from Grafton to Alton.
