As usual the bandwidth on this list is a bit over whelming, I guess I
to check my spam filter again... Anyway I thought I would add my 2 cents
respect to the forth coming activities next week in CO.
So.... I guess if I can get all the stuff done on the car, or at least
the top ten
critical issues, like non functional window, blower motors, brake pads
I should be heading off to Glenwood Springs (thanks Brandon) this sort
of time next week.
I think my son Matthew is signed up for the trip, I keep trying to
concept of 24 hours driving, stay for a bit, and then 24 hours driving
back, he just nods and looks at me like I am speaking another language.
the joys of a thirteen year old.
I might hook up with Nathan E. in Chicago on the way but it sounds like
has a few "issues" and I might leave a bit earlier and try for a more
drive out there. As traveling back with Pajak promises to be anything
Mapquest says take Hwy 80 West for ~800 miles with a wee stretch on
Hwy 280. It looks fairly direct, any comments on the pros and cons?
I would be interested in hearing from the brave folks on the East coast
are heading over. It seems like most of the owners here in Canada are a
bunch of Jessie's and "aren't able to make it".
Intelligence reports seem to suggest that a certain pearl white owner
be doing a bit of work on his car and it would be great to see that one
flesh. For those on the fence - get off!, and make all the effort folks
put in organizing this worth-while. It would be great if their hard work
rewarded with a huge turn out.
Cheers, Mike Hopton
