I'm thankful that the storm is actually becoming less of a threat as time passes . That doesn't mean that it can't gain intensity , but hopefully not , as we are 'camping' about 3 miles inland from the coast .
Doesnt look like thunderstorm Karen is going to effect us anymore. Your camping trip is safe!

Yup . I didn't even have to roll the awnings up . Just the occasional shower .

But , you might get a sprinkle or two out of her , yet .

We didn't even get the wind . We did just have a nice kinda heavy shower , but it's down to tree drip now .

That shower was enough to wash the XJ off a bit .

Currently @ Magic River .

That shot was taken at a campground we hosted in Michigan a couple years ago . We still live / travel in our motor home . We'd planned to move on Eastward after Karen , but It's kinda nice here , so ...

It's nicer a little further east but I am partial to the area.

Washed her for the first time since owning my xj.... Not my idea my apartment manager told me it was too dirty for the parking lot.... What a pain 10 dollars later at the 25 cent wash place and it's still a dirty mess... Think I will just park on the street from now on

I did the same thing today except I used mobile 1 synthetic and a WIX filter. I'm going to now go 7k between oil changes instead of the 5k I've been going.

A Fram filter, what were you thinking ? Get that thing off there and put something decent on before it does any damage.

Fram internals vs. other filters:
