Stock tank woes, Heading out for Best in the Desert once again!

 Saturday we were out and about, talked with Cal Ranch and they acted surprised that our new stock tank was leaking and how quickly it leaked.  They said to bring it back and they would exchange it for another. 

Saturday evening we spent visiting with John and Karen. 

We bought lights for the outdoor kitchen and Ken got them up.

The lights are actually brighter than the picture looks.
We bought two strands and decided we liked just one 
for now.  

We sat out there and listened to the thunder, lightning and 
rain. So nice! Even got cold enough for a few minutes we 
were able to use the propane fireplace 💙

Sunday morning we loaded the stock tank  back up and got there just after 0900.  Exchanged it and away we went. We hadn't eaten breakfast so thought we'd stop at Betsy's.  That didn't work as there was a line of people waiting, so on to Fandango, same thing.  Headed to Gardnerville and CVI. They were busy, but got our tummies filled. 😋

This stock tank leaks even faster that the other one did..so now it sits with about an inch of water in the bottom. Ken wants to try flex seal on it, but it'll have to wait until after the weekend.  I've emailed the  company, (how they want you to contact them) Behlen but no response yet. That was on Monday. 

Spent the last couple of days getting ready to head to Silver Springs (about 1/2 hour from here).  It's the Best in the Desert, Vegas to Reno race once again. 

Heading out later today and will be back home on Saturday. Always a great time with friends. 😊

Time to get a move on and finish loading up! Have a great day! 


  1. Frustrating. I too would probably just try to seal it myself rather than going back and forth. Hope it works out for you!

    1. The company is sending some sealant so we'll try that! Thanks

  2. Yup I'd get flex seal and do it up good ... every seam. That's funny though ... I have several of those tanks and none of them leak, although they are the smaller version. Don't you just love the cool??

  3. The smaller don't have the middle seal in the bottom which is what i'm guessing is leaking..but I really don't want to go to 6 foot. Yes, ready for cool weather, but then again, I always am :)
