On Saturday, we got up early, got the oil & differential fluids changed in the truck, did some grocery shopping, cleaned a little, and drove to Big Lake.

This gave me a chance to get the new-to-us Explorer into 4WD for a bit, as we followed an ATV trail for a bit. Had to make sure everything worked okay, ya know? :) After a round trip of roughly 150 miles, it's safe to say the truck meets our expectations, and we can take longer trips without worry.
Yesterday, we cleaned the rest of the house, grilled a bunch of turkey burgers (beer & brat mustard, some local seasonings, and BBQ sauce mixed in - yum!), went to the wife's summer company picnic, and then back home to watch a couple of movies.
Oh - what longer trips? We're thinking about taking the Alaska ferry from Whittier to Kodiak Island. It'll be nice to take the new truck along, so we can explore Kodiak in our own vehicle.
I hope all y'all had a good weekend, too. Thanks for stopping by.
