Mario ordered the master cylinder and hydro booster from their warehouse this afternoon. When he told me the cost, I almost croaked. The work has to be done, though, because I can’t go anywhere without those brakes!
I was able to change my reservations for the Neon Lights Tour from tonight to Sunday night so I could be here for completion of the brake job. Otherwise, Mario would have had to make a return trip to bleed the brakes later – at an additional cost, no doubt.
Sunday night for the lights tour works out better all around anyway because I will be able to get more sleep tonight. Then the 5:00 a.m. alarm tomorrow for my Hoover Dam Tour won’t be quite so painful.
This afternoon I made reservations for one night (September 30) at Kanab, Utah. It is about halfway between Las Vegas and Grand Canyon’s north rim, so that will be a nice break. There just isn’t a direct route from anywhere to the Canyon!
