I'm going. I'll be there on Friday. I plan to do a road loop Friday before checking in Friday night. 5 meals provided this time - not bad!

I'm certainly no expert, but I would flush it and refill with pure Engine Ice. If the overflow persists, it may simply be the radiator cap failing. This happened to me last month. Everything was...
