Daily Narrative  The day began late with yet another time zone change throwing us off, we are now three hours different from back home.  The bus' right rear CV boot had split wide open somewhere in Montana, or earlier, and the CV joint was making a real racket.  On board mechanic Ken reappeared and with the expert guidance of Bob, super mechanic, we rounded up a new CV joint and managed to get the old one off and the new one on.  This, of course, took many more tools than we have along, and if not for Bob's help would have set us back a few hundred dollars at a shop.  Theresa spent the day reading, answering e-mail, and checking on Ken.  We had another excellent home cooked meal by Mary Jo and relaxed in the evening.  Our good buddies Dion and Rachel called to give us an update on our dog, Deshka, who they are very graciously dog sitting while the folks are entertaining out of town visitors.  Keep those emails coming Rachel!
