Dodge 360, blown engine in a '74 class C Mini Winnie

She's dead fred.

Came over Loveland pass, no problemo and down through Denver heading home and east from Southern California on Interstate 80. Misfiring started in Nebraska and plenty of oily smoke out the exhaust.

Well not good because I'm headed for home in northern Wisconsin.

Walmart, oil and prayer.

35 quarts of oil later I am back, a little shaken and  tired as the leaves are coming fast on the trees here in the north.

The base unit is a 1973 Winnebago Mini Winnie, power is supplied by a Dodge 360 engine.

The trials and tribulations are all here and encompass a couple of years of my life an ten thousand miles of travel across the USA. All the highs and lows are here as I prepare…
