Musical Instruments(?)-
Will we have enough musicians on the trip to consider jamming around the camp fire? I could bring my carbon fiber cello. It's bulky to transport, practically indestructible, and sounds pretty good for what it is. Just don't expect expedition cello playing like that in the movie Master and Commander :D (that was actually Yo Yo Ma playing in the movie).
After Chazz' chili dinner, we may have several new musical instruments.

I learned some new things about my vehicle during the shakedown cruise and subsequent research. As a result, I'll now have the following on the trip:

- 2 gal. motor oil (one 15W40 to make Disco happy, one 10W30)

- 4 quarts PS fluid

- 4 quarts 75W140 gear oil

My rig requires the following

20w-50 motor oil (engine)
GL-4 (not GL-5) 90w gear oil (transmission, transfer case, portal axle hubs)
DOT-3 brake fluid (brakes, 4x4 control, locker controls)

I have a slight oil leak going on which I have not been able to locate. My mechanic thinks its the O-rings on the push rod tubes. It should get better as the weather warms and I drive the truck more often. I'll be bringing extra engine oil and GL-4 90w to keep things topped off. I'll also bring the extra brake fluid as requested. Coolant is not a problem as the Pinzgauer is air cooled.
