    Uncle John and I are leaving bright and early in the morning. We are heading for Bonneville and if all goes as planned, will arrive Friday afternoon.

    I plan to do daily updates from my Droid phone, via Photobucket.
    Wanted to get this thread started before leaving home and photo updates will show up soon enough.

    Starting off with the approximate route for the next 10 days
    After a pit stop back here in Omaha, we are heading down to the HAMB Drags.

    Put new Excelsior radials on the Roadster today and took care of a bunch of other small things. The radials make a huge difference in how the car rides and drives!
