Report by Thecla

Monday 23th June

Official change of the key of the Landrover and stickering of the Landrover with the names of us. But the stickering doesn’t work out so simply because the heat had done some damage to the prepared sticker. We needed the help of doctor Dirk with his scalpel to complete the names.

Today Trudy and Thecla stay on the campsite and make a short discovering hike in the nature. They see all kind of exclusive,  blooming and smelling plants, giant trees with magic air roots  and exotic birds. There are also some animals in the orphanage, but they are more easily to see.

Benno and Dirk drive with the Landrover to the company of David, in search of the disturbing noise inside the T ford. They get fantastic help from David Verdu en Carlos Joniaux, by changing the location of maintenance in a open door location what really more comfortable is, less warmth.  By opening the carter pan there was a small piece of Babbitt which felled down.
The energy level of our man went to a very deep point. The piece belonged to the front cover of the crankshaft bearing. How worse is it? Some call it the BIG END!!
The great hospitable David and Carlos offering any help we need. Professionals who have a good network of people. Benno and Dirk are taken to many different garages in search of a solution for the broken Babbitt. Finally they decide to let make a new piece of bearing what they can prepare by their own.
