  • It's official-no long haul for me.

    Due to lack of funding, unless I win the lottery, I will not be able to long haul. I will make Madison for certain and am working to come up with the cash for Rochester, but that will be it for me. Damn I need to find a job so I can do this right next year. See ya all on the road. Please make sure to offer up pics daily so I can see what I am missing. Now to get the Elco road ready. Still got a couple oil leaks to fix.
    Hauling ass & sucking gas are the best uses for a truck.

        Sorry to hear that Jim.

          Madison is a guarenteed stop since I paid for that room in October. Should be able to come up with the cash to hit Rochester.

              Very little progress on the wagon.

              The truck gets the same bad mileage that the wagon does (~9.5mpg) and isn't as much fun to drive (no tunes, no A/C, old bench seat, less power). I am currently driving it ~100 miles a day so the thought of taking a vacation in it where I drive ~4,000 miles in 12 days doesn't excite me that much. I am sure it needs some work but it is the only running vehicle I own right now so it is hard to take it off the road to work on it.

              I am beginning to wonder if it is really worth 8 vacation days, $1,600 in gas, $1,000 in hotels and who knows how much in food and drink.

              Just beginning to get bummed out :'( :'( but we shouldn't highjack Jim's' thread.

                  Man Jim, I wish you well and hope you can make some of the tour. Hope you find the job you like and all goes well in the future. ;)
                  It's not the destination, but the journey and the friends you make along the way that counts.

                    Sorry you can't make the entire trip. I had to cancel the entire PT because I lost my job as well. I have worked for 35 years straight without being laid off, and now at almost 50 years old, I am searching for a job. IT REALLY SUCKS! >

                          Tim, thanks for the offer. At this point, I am trying to get the cash to make Rochester and maybe Ames, but Madison is a definite as I paid for that room back in October. I have your # and will call if only doing Madtown.

                            I'm not long hauling either. Work's dropped off a bit for me, the car is down and I gotta watch the pennies for a while.

                            However, I'll be in Madison (barring some unforeseen calamity) with MIKEE and a few others to see the rest of you roll into town. Got my 'business cards' all designed and test printed and I'll be passing 'em out at the festivities.
