Re: Getting ready for the meet...

We've got train reservations for Sunday (kids are free :D ), but it doesn't return until 7:30pm, and I don't want to drive that road in the dark! Stevec, Are you still doing the train? Earlier we had thought about doing it which is why I did not reserve room for Sunday nite in Silverton. Yesterday ...

Re: Getting ready for the meet...

Decided to do an engine swap with Miss Alice. Something telling me the noise she is making is getting louder each year. Swapped Miss Iowa's engine into her plus a new front tranny seal and clutch assembly. Miss Iowa came with leaking front tranny seal so her engine needed pulled anyway. Hard work fo...

Re: Pot Luck Dinner

Winnie just said she would haul in a crockpot and make red beans and rice for the pot-luck. Said she would also bring something toward a desert. She said Durango has both Wall-Mart and Sam's so she will do grocery shopping there before we come up to Silverton. .

Re: Meet Location

I presently have the engine/tranny out of both Miss Alice and Miss Iowa. Was going to do an upper engine workover on Miss Alice's but started hearing bad things about place I was planning to let bore for o/s pistons. Decided to just swap engines with Miss Iowa as she came with a leaky front tranny s...

Re: Getting ready for the meet...

Just a little venting. The logical route from Kaw City Oklahoma to Silverton Colorado is about 780 miles. The first 350 is through flat farm land with two lane roads. Being not dumb and to save to cost, the beef and pork industry fatten their animals where the grain is grown. For me the only way it ...

Re: Getting ready for the meet...

You could try and slip the clutch a time or 2. If there is some rust or stuff in there it will be gone after you've done that! Frankenstein, I sure wished you could make a meet over here so we could meet you. Better yet, bring a boat load including Vidar and others. I have a family type pontoon boa...

Re: Getting ready for the meet...

The clutch grabs a little when its cold too, a little jumpy, but it could be the non-factory clutch cable and where the previous owner mounted it. Hope to make it! The clutch on Miss Alice was jumpy. After about 3 years of daily driving it is more smooth now. Always thought it to be rust in flywhee...

Re: Getting ready for the meet...

A big item just got crossed off of my "to do" list. Late yesterday I finally completed building the new LH fender for the trailer. Started sandblasting it about 6:30 (cooler)this morning and just got back from taking it to the powder coat place.

We also hope you can make it Fouling spark plugs happens. Good to keep an extra set along. When we made our reservations Silverton was filling up due to a large group of some sort (not lj10.com) More pics will be great. I believe Stevec, SMUZ, Tweedybird and SuzukiTom have CB's? I have an old Cobra ...

Re: Date?

My ramps are close to 5 ft long. I usually find a hill or low spot for the trailer. A story on loading/loading. Driving to our motel after arriving at Moab for the 2009 meet I spotted a large tire shop with a small hill at the back of the parking area. As it was Sunday I did not have to have permiss...

Park Ranger shot at Poison Spider Trail

Noticed in today’s (Sunday) paper where a Utah State Park Ranger was shot at the trailhead of Poison Spider Trail. Happened Friday night. About 100 officers were on the trail of a suspect in an area near Dead Horse State Park. The injured Officer was in a hospital in Grand Junction, CO. Critical but...

Re: Meet Location

Miss Alice and us two oldies would not have had fun at Disney this fall without the Sami invite. Will definitely say I enjoyed the ZUKSofKC.us folks AND the respect they showed for our LJs by (as Suzuki Tom says) censoring the trails to what we could handle.

OK – I knew that with the nature of this beast I could not wait until April 1 to fess up. Confession 1 – To make room for more pictures while at Moab, I had my camera card downloaded to a photo disk at the City Market. However, before I picked up the disk I located / purchased another card at the Ph...
