I might stop by for dinner if I get the coolant problem fixed this weekend morning. Curse GM and the overcomplicated coolant refill process. I can just sneak in right? :P

Toni:

Roy's Easy Burp Process (no tools needed):

1. Fill coolant to fill line.
2. Drive for a very short distance (no further than around the block in a residential area) at low speed (30 km/h is fine) sawing the wheel left & right hard. This will dislodge any airblock.
3. Refill coolant to the fill line. There is little danger of pressure or steam because you drove for such a short distance and the engine is still relatively cool.
4. Repeat until coolant level does not change.

See you Saturday!

No map yet so just in case the meet up is as follows:
Milton Tim Hortons. Take 401 and go north on Hwy 25 it will be on your right.
Meet up 8:30am. First group departs 9am.
Rain or shine we are a go.
NS
PS Sly Bob will get a meet up time today for you at the War Memorial in Beamsville.

The lunch restaurant is now changed to ....
Bugsy’s
33 Lakeshore Rd, St Catharines, ON L2N 7B3
905-934-3246

This is the place we have always gone to except for last year due to road construction. Construction is now down the road closer to the canal. Bugsy's has more seating and a bigger menu.

Question:
What type of radio? I am guessing to communicate between cars while on the go.
But I cannot thing of what would work, Cobra point to point? Does CBS radio still work??
Would anyone have Internet access while on the go to update the way points.

I would like to meet up somewhere around 1pm.
Looks like a stop at Tim Horton's on Hamilton mountain or Bugsy's will be the best places to catch up.


Sorry, I am new to this ;-)
