Collin has worked his butt off tuning up the carburetor on the van for the last couple weeks. Between breaks in the rain, he has spent several hours working on the idling issues and making sure the carb is getting the right amount of air intake. After several trial start-ups and tweaks, the engine warmed up to a wonderful buzz and Collin said, "Let's take her on a drive!" Olin and Taco hung out with grandpa for a few hours while mom, dad, and Dobby test drove the van up the famous Snake 421. We cruised by South Holston Lake and the van roared up the curvy back roads of Appalachia.
We checked out a trail at the top and cruised down to a fancy car meet-up.
It was a beautiful weekend and we were happy to enjoy the sunshine and explore some new places. Mom snuck in 4 hours underground on a cave trip Saturday night. Then Sunday morning, we welcomed in Easter with bunny pancakes, dinos, and a delicious ham! We took a relaxing nap and ended our holiday weekend with a trip to the Bristol Drive-in. It was amazing. The pictures do more justice than words.
