I'm about to do a southwest road trip. I just bought a crankshaft grinder from a machinery vendor in Lubbock, so I'll be headed that way in a couple of weeks to pick it up and haul it back to Tennessee. A side trip to Trenton is definitely in the works to visit Coilover's shop, and if anyone else along the way is up for a meet and greet I'd love to put names to faces and collect a few pictures of the guys I've been communicating with for a long time. No definite schedule yet, but I'd like to get this trip done before the snow flies!

I'm not far from Trenton, so would be happy to meet there. I've been wanting to visit Coilover's shop, anyway. Keep us posted on timing.

Cheers!

Hey Jerry.......I’m on IH-20 just over 100 miles south of Lubbock. Several years ago you sold me a transmission, then met my daughter who was visiting in Tennessee at the time and she hauled the trans back here to Texas for me. If IH-20 or IH-30 are in your planned route to head back east, it would be a pleasure to meet and thank you in person. The Interstate route would also take you east toward drdoug’s place in Prosper. Hope you have a nice trip, good weather and lots of chances to meet your fellow bolters.

Jerry,

I wish I could come visit your old butt out there. Just a little to far for me to drive!

My most recent visit to San Antonio was an all expense paid vacation in January 1968, courtesy of the U.S. Air Force! I'd love to spend some time there and see some of the sights I didn't get a chance to back then! I'm sure there are more appealing places to be than Lackland Air Force Base, in a basic training barracks!

My trip is on hold for a while- - - -I've spent the past week nursing a swollen hand that's probably a badly infected result of catching a sliver of hot steel off my lathe in the second knuckle of my middle finger. Now most of my fingers resemble link sausages, and holding a pen or a coffee cup is a lost cause! The antibiotics my family practitioner prescribed last week aren't helping much, so I've got an appointment with an orthopedic hand specialist coming up in a couple of days. Hope he doesn't have to do any slicing and dicing!

Sorry to hear about your mishap Jerry. It’s hard to get anything done on old motors or trucks if your hand is swollen, so I hope you’re finger gets well really soon!

I am sorry to hear of your hand's condition, Jerry.

You most likely do not have to be told: do what the doctors tell you to do.
