  • Home Safe...Check-in

    Home today at about 2pm... The OlíMopar Wagon ran great for its first Long Haul. 3104 miles start to finish for me. Almost more in one trip than the Wagon had been driven by previous owner in the 14 yrs he had it.
    Had an Awesome time reconnecting and spending time visiting with those I came across or followed around...Can hardly wait for the next one

    We had a great time too. This PT was among the best we've been on even with all the rain. Including about 11 hours of it coming home and two days of it going to concord........3760 miles, home today at 4:20.
    Next year!

      We got home this afternoon but were short haulers only this year due to work. Short haul was just under 1,700 miles.

                    The Freaks had a long-standing tradition, that the first long hauler to get home, starts the new countdown with any info released on tour, so it looks like it's "Redline's" turn.

                      Dave and I got to my house yesterday about 5:45. Dave left this morning about 7am headed to LA. Great week, the 71 C 10 did fine no major issues at all just a few annoying things.

                        We're home. 12:33pm today! We only did ~200 miles of Interstate between Nowalk OH and Macon GA! Took a little longer but we sure found some nice twisties Much better trip this year. Wagon was only up on jack stands once - Blairsville GA. Stopped for gas and lunch. Got back in the car and the speedo and overdirve did not work! Took about 1 1/2 hours to figure out what was wrong and repair it. Seems my extra spiffy Corvette 90* speedo cable adapter took a dump. Didn't feel like trying to fix it on the road so I just installed my old cable to drive the senders and we were back on the road.

                            We got home about 7:30 on Friday night, Short drive home was great this year. Had a great Power Tour even with the rain. Thanks everyone for hanging out with us. Somewhere around 2000 miles. Coming home we knew we were gonna be close on gas, made it with no problem, Saturday morning went to pull the car from the garage and it wouldn't start. Was out of gas!

                              Got to the lake house this afternoon around 4, didn't feel like driving all the way in one day so I stopped about halfway. No time clock = no hurry.
