Woohoo we got the truck back this afternoon. Since they had to drain all 200 gallons of fuel, the first thing we did was go right back to Love’s to fill up! Hahaha yup, I know what you are thinking…but so far no repeat of bad fuel. Ok, the total repair bill came to $8,481. Want some fantastic news? The first thing I did once I got back in the truck was to turn on the freezer and check the temperature. The biggest compartment was still reading 36F and the smaller one was reading 48F. Most of the high dollar meats were in the bigger section so all that food is saved. We did lose the refrigerator food such as vegetables and pickles, but no big deal. So, for 3.5 days the freezer stayed unplugged and yet saved the contents! Excellent insulation and build quality! Woohoo!
We tried multiple times on multiple phones to broadcast our trip down to Sioux City but we couldn’t get a data tower to connect at all. The answer might be found in the Verizon Outage Map located here: Outage maps we will broadcast tomorrow if we have a chance. If not, the trusty snowman camera does a fine job as backup in times of no data! See ya in the morning for the backroads trip to Grand Island, Nebraska
