Seven short weeks after arriving in the port city of Veracruz our new Beta engine has been released by customs and is climbing the mountains of Mexico in the care of XCF Transporte Carga Consolidada.
Yes, she's riding the roads in a big semi tractor trailer and the crew of Traveler is dancing around in glee.
I'm not sure why it took seven weeks, three money transfers, three FedEx document packages, and thirty eight email communications but it did and, fingers crossed, the new engine should be arriving at the yard in Guaymas soon. We'll wait for our mechanic Omar to let us know it has arrived.
In the meantime, we are doing odd jobs around the farm waiting for the fruit to be at just the right stage for picking. When that time arrives, we be working around the clock to get that stuff harvested at its peak of perfection. This farming life, gotta love it.
|I hope to have a picture in the future of Omar with the red Beta coming up on the crane. This shot is of Omar lowering the old blue Perkins.|
