Need For Changed Oil Eventually Takes Me To A Wichita Falls Dock On A Bay
I am a big fan of being right on top of vehicle maintenance, never procrastinating on these type issues.
So, since I was driving to Walmart, among other destinations, and knowing Walmart had an Auto Care Department, I figured what could go wrong with a Walmart oil change?
I figured right. It was an efficient operation. I walked in, said I needed an oil change, was told to park the vehicle at the first open bay, did so. A Walmart auto tech guy was quickly there with a high tech handheld device taking down all the vital information.
I was given a card to scan on the in store price check scanning devices, with the card scanning telling me the status of the oil change whilst I did my search for Walmart goods. The first time I scanned the card I was told "Waiting". The second time I scanned the card I was told "In Bay".
I did not scan the card a third time because the in store loudspeaker loudly told me that "Mr. Jones, your vehicle is ready."
The whole process took about 15 minutes.
Leaving Walmart I took the out in the country route, leaving Wichita Falls to make my way to Lake Wichita for some maritime refreshment via a location I'd not been to previously, that being the Lake Wichita Boat Launch and Dock.
Walking out to the end of the Dock was a bit of a rickety boardwalk experience that I liked.
In the photo documentation above, way in the distance you can see Mount Wichita looming over the far side of the lake.
I had originally planned to do some mountain climbing on Mount Wichita today, But, with the temperature semi-hot in the mid 80s, and with no wind blowing, I opted not to overheat via mountain climbing and instead acquired endorphins via negative ions zapping from the slow moving waves on the lake.
