Near Disaster at Pioneer Villa

Just as I was getting ready for bed after having done as much packing as I could, Lisa called from the Klamath Falls (Midland) rest area on US-97. She told me that she had had a close call. When she stopped at the Pioneer Villa truck stop in Halsey, she saw that coolant was leaking out of the bottom of the pickup truck. The lower coolant hose clamp had come loose. She was able to tighten the hose, and says she's had no trouble and lost no coolant since then. She's still going to drive for a few hours tonight, probably at least as far as Redding, because the weather is nice and because she didn't get up until about 1 PM Thursday, so it's earlier for her than it is for me.
