While I cooked a banana cake, a meat and vegie soup and hard boiled the eggs, to use most of the last fresh vegies and bananas, John started the repair on the aft water-tank brackets. First he removed the tank and this took the longest time as the bolts were tight and the hoses(all four of them) didn’t want to be removed. Some boiling water helped.
All put back together good as new. The forward brackets could not be drilled in the same place as the old ones as the drill is too long. They are just sitting there waiting for the failure of the original strap.
Had a drive around the town. I bought a “Claro” chip so we could have better coverage. I finally found a store to put money on the sim.
We drove towards Chile and just before immigration turned off onto a yellow road and found a campsite between some monkey puzzel trees.
A family were nearby so john took our water melon to them and the rest of our pecans in the shell. Rather give them away than loose them to customs.
