In the clutch of a slipping clutch (groan!)

Pioneer Square, Portland

Pioneer Square, Portland

22 November

Took it easy this AM & cleaned up the camper a bit. I left around 11:30 to go to the tourist information office in Portland to get details on a wine tour. Of course, it’s Sunday and it’s closed.

Nevertheless, I had checked things out on The Oregon government tourism site . I had a big sushi lunch in anticipation of imbibing a bit and not wanting to get drunk, even though I intended to spit most of the wine I tasted.

Ponzi Vineyards

I first headed to Ponzi Vineyards but my clutch started slipping. Ponzi had a great Chardonnay, some good to excellent Pinot Noirs. I bought a few bottles and a magnum and then headed to an RV park in Wilsonville to while away the day.

Maybe I’ll go on an organized winery tour tomorrow while the truck hopefully gets fixed.

    I hope all you need is a clutch ajustment…. when was your clutch replaced? Or hasn’t it?

    Ciao Luigi,

    Wow! It’s turning out to be quite a rip, rather “trip”, and it’s only the beginning!
    Fantastic, I’m quite excited to think what stories you’ll have to tell come the next few weeks.
    Ti auguro buona fortuna, in bocca al lupo!

    Ciao Ciao

    Joe
