I am bringing and oil filter and a PV belt. Just in case. Hopefully I won't need much more.

But I'll let you know.

I think that should've been shipped in the car BUT, it seems, Febi Z-HM 2615 (which Mercedes use for PAS & self- levelling suspension) is an acceptable alternative - which you can get at NAPA stores in the US.

I am also bringing some LHM+, but I do believe LHM+ is possible to obtain over there.

That must be right but I doubt from the average parts emporium on Main St, Smalltown, USA

If they have jcbs then they have lhm. I often see it in plant and garden machinery places.

I can recommend the "Tractor Supply Store" - but not sure how widespread they are.

Oh, I do not plan on missing the solar eclipse.

Also, news everyone! I finally have my car here in the United States, and I am here at Saratoga Springs, New York for the big Citroën event:

I have also created a travel blog thingie, called Grand Détour. On a separate website, so more people will be able to read it. But you can come too!

I was amazed on your blog for yesterday to see that you stopped in Damariscotta, I've eaten at the place that you did!

Hehe, yeah, it was a fun place to eat. Now, a lot has happened since then, as you can probably tell from my journal. I am now near the West Coast.

Meeting Citroën people over here is a lot of fun. And even meeting people who recognise the brand is interesting. Older people over here remember them from back in the day where they were sold over here. Check out the journal for more Citroën and US/Canadian imagery.

Also, on 25th, I will be going to the Mullin museum, and they are themselves in seeing my car.
