Watch what you say about Fords!
I plan on driving the 7.3, dragging a 48 Chevy behind it!

I reject your reality, and substitute my own:
It looks to me like the '48 Chevy is going to push that Ford F250 to the Reunion!

Yeah, that's how good a Chevy is. From atop the trailer...it can use the same principle as wireless charging for your cellphone.

Final preparations underway for the trip to Kansas City! I got the new radio installed last night, so I have tunes now. I also have to make some adjustments to the chain drive of the winch. I have a bit of clean-up to do on the truck, and I'm ready to go.

I think I'm going to stop by Arrow Rock, and visit the Bucksnort Trading Company along the way. There may be a chance for a photo-op with Mater at Arrow Rock.

Moderator - The Electrical Bay and Rocky Mountain Bolters
Rusty Rod is rolling out at about 0330 Friday morning. Rusty will take CO34 to I 76, to I80 through Omaha and stop to drop off brand parts in Council Bluffs IA. The meeting spot is at the Cracker Barrel at the intersection of I80 and I29.
Once the deal is done, Rusty will head south on I29 to KC and probably just park at the Super8 all week end.... that is unless yall want to see my surprise. The road home will be I70 to I25.


Another quality post.

Well I made it it took me 10 hrs of steady 60 mph in scorchinheat and hummidy. Got 17 mpg better than what I thought would happen. The oil pressure dropped on one gauge btw ibhavev2.. Got in about 6pm and had a nice steak dinner. They are predicting 83. Had the usually delays at the gas pumps you have constantly watch or it spillover flow. It is 2.09 here will try to go back to sleep. If spell check does not correct I wwill not. I am on my phone.

So Ron.
You are at the Super 8 already?
It's 5am right now and I woke up, then couldn't get back to sleep. So here I am typing again.
Vicki and I should be on the road by 10am and that should get us to the show grounds about 2pm today.
We still have a lot of loading to do.

If you want something to do.Take Hwy 9 into KC. As soon as you go across the river, get off at the first exit.
It will take you right down to the River Market.
It has a lot of shops and restaurants. Also the Arabia Steamboat Museum.

Great place to walk around and watch people.

Vicki does not know it yet, but I would like to walk thru the Argosy Casino some time this weekend.
Hope they don't card me!

Don

I napped off and until one a m. To old for this. I thought I might go to the casino also but I am not delusional enough to think they might card me. Could only hope.
