Straighten up and fly right!

…comes to mind because we’re celebrating our escape from Camp Parking Lot.

Yes they did have to get the exhaust brake part from BFE overnight, and yes they did have to fabricate the other exhaust brake part that apparently a North Georgia shop said “that’ll do.”

A previous shop turned the adaptor pipe around, welded a piece to it, just stuck it in the brake housing and called it good.

Notwithstanding that exhaust gas temperatures hit 1500F.

We are damned lucky!

Anyway, they cut us loose or pushed us out of the nest but we arrived back at LOR a bit before dark. Mom got on the radio and manuevered me into our spot, which we obviously can’t get into, with no arm-waving or shouting at all. We usually do it without excitement.
