Re: Getting ready for the meet...

Made it to Colby, Kansas. 600+ miles today. Be home tomorrow afternoon.

Although, after looking at KC's weather forecast (104* tomorrow), I almost turned around and headed back for the mountains.

Re: Getting ready for the meet...

Well, the meet's over for me, I'm on the way home. So is Meyers.
Steve, Tweedy Bird, Steve's step father and Dion aren't leaving until tomorrow.

It was hot. And then it got hotter. More details later, I'm in a Motel in Price, Utah and I'm going to bed.

Re: Getting ready for the meet...

Sitting in a Day's Inn in Jerome, Idaho. 625 uneventful miles today. Long 12 hour day, but everything is still peachy. Only got 160 miles to go tomorrow. Should have the campsite all set up and be chilling with Meyers about noon. :whiskey: The TPMS is working awesome. No more worrying about trailer ...

Re: Getting ready for the meet...

Sitting in a Comfort Inn in Cheyenne, Wyoming. 650 uneventful miles today. Long 14 hour day, but everything is peachy. EXCEPT coming across Nebraska on I-80. That piece of I-80 is a 400 mile state-wide construction zone. Took me over 2 hours to get thru Lincoln at 20 mph or less. Ain't going back th...

Well, I'm down to the short rows. I've still gotta go to the bank and get cash, make sure there's enough in my account to cover all the automatic bill pays and the gas, lodging, etc. I'll put on the debit card. Go to the store and get beer and cigars. Charge my phone, put the camera in the truck, ge...

Aw, crap! I just found out that Mel (Lift-dr on here and my friend that was at last year's meet with his Samurai) lost the transmission in his truck with a gooseneck trailer on behind in Leavenworth, Kansas earlier today. Leavenworth is about 30 miles north of me. He called a Towtruck to get his tru...

Re: Getting ready for the meet...

Well. got the tire changed, the new spare on the left, the bad tire changed on in place of the spare. everything looks good. Got the TPMS on and set up. This thing is sweet. Gives a readout of all trailer tires, pressure and temp. Depending on how it works on the trip, I'm gonna buy more sensors so ...

Re: Getting ready for the meet...

Well, fudge. Before I put the TPMS on, I decided to check the left trailer tire which seems to have a slow leak. Well there's a crack in the sidewall that's seeping. Drat. Looks like I gotta put the new spare on and replace the leaky one w/ a spare I've got from a Kick/trak. Luckily the size matches.

Re: Getting ready for the meet...

Yeah, and I ordered it from Georgia yesterday and got an email that UPS says it will be here TOMORROW! :ohno: How cool is THAT? Two trailer spares are damn near a must, IMHO. It really sucks to be 1000 miles from home, blow a tire, and have to tippy-toe into the nearest town to get a tire replaced, ...

Got 90% of the camping stuff packed when my back told me to quit. Damn, how'd I get so much stuff? Now I need to convince Alice that we can stop at WalMart in Boise and stock the coolers, she doesn't HAVE to bring all the food for the week from Kansas. Wish me luck on that one. One big item left is ...
