Terry, where are you guys gonna spend the nite before we meet up?  We can recommend food/lodging for you guys or perhaps meet up w/you, especially if you need service on anyone's cars.

Let us know!

Looks a bit chilly up there Terry.  Don't expect the weather to be much nicer here LOL  No, actually it should be in the high 50's maybe 60's if you pray enough.

Terry & Elba,
Thanks for the update.
I was getting the chills looking at your pictures.
Your baby will enjoy the weather in the lower 48.
I hope you have a smooth sail, on the water and the land.
Will you be able to get over the mountain passes or will you have to come down and around?
See you soon and have a safe trip.

Good luck on the trip.

Terry just had his first "Oh SH#T" moment on this trip!
He's in Seattle, and had a fuel leak. Just filled the tank, and then fuel started running out on the ground...oh oh...that can't be good!
Turns out his fuel pump doesn't have a return line fitting, and the return line on the frame was left open. When he filled the tank, fuel started siphoning out of the return line!!
He's gonna plug the line on the frame, and hit the road!
Hope that's the worst thing that happens for any of us on the road to The Gathering.

Now how about that? I thought there was a breather cap on the frame end. Did it dall off or did the price of gas scare the end off? Either way its great to know he and Elba are safe on the ground and starting the migration.

Hope the rest of the trip is uneventful.....
