HabCar used and why, where? Yes, to town for water

CrewCar used and why, where? Yes, to town for food for crew

Luna used and why, where? Yes. I attempted a trip to NM but was worried about the brakes and then about 30 miles out the check engine light went on.

General notes and comments: Van will get oil change in Grand Junction on Thursday if possible. I checked the oil, it is dirty but barely below the MAX level so I’m not sure why the oil light went on. I added ½ quart and then argued with the vehicle for about an hour to get the oil light to go off. Luna is amazing van, but sometimes she’s just a little bit overwhelming in her engineering. I mean, I checked the oil with the dipstick only to find out there are two types of dipsticks and that you are supposed to let the computer do the checking first at any rate!
