Hot Rods Help for a coast to coast road trip

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by NVRRDUNN, Jan 1, 2018.

  1. I have another post elsewhere here on this subject but rather than modify it, I just started over...so....I’m a 70 year old hotrodder that needs a couch for a few overnight stays enroute on my bucket list trip from Eugene Oregon to Stigler Oklahoma, then on to Greenfield New York, where I plan to join up with the Rolling Bones group and travel back home to Oregon, via a stop at the Bonneville Salt flats where I am going to be a go-fer crew member for my friend from Creswell, Oregon who is racing an alcohol 29 roadster there, then return to Oregon. My wife and I were planning on taking this trip a couple years ago and winding up in Stigler Oklahoma where her sister and significant other live then return to Oregon via Rte. 66/Grand Canyon/ California highway 1 on the coast then home, …..but she contracted stage 4 liver/bone/lung cancer in late August, so she wont be coming but she wants ME to take this trip anyway….so, in her honor and her memory, I’m gonna. I then changed the route to a much longer one to take advantage of combining another bucket list trip of visiting the homes of my ancestors in Warsaw and Dale N.Y for 3 days and doing some family genealogy stuff., then travel on to Greenfield NY to stay 2-3 days there to rest up and help the Bones crew get their stuff ready in any way I can be of help, then hit the road with them. I have a sleeping bag and a pillow, and traveling light, so a couch will work just fine for me overnight. I just figured I would rather talk with people with interests in cars and such and make some new friends during my overnight stays on the trip to the east coast rather than stare at 4 generic uninteresting walls for those evenings! I have most of the bases covered, but the places I need a bunk/couch/room are in or near Rawlins Wyoming, St. Louis Missouri, and Warsaw NY. I’d prefer to stay within 10-15 miles of these places. If you can help me out, you can contact me at coupedeviller@gmail.com using C2C ROAD TRIP as the subject line so I know it came from this forum….or you can leave a message for me on the HAMB. I tip very well. Thanks so much. ..Steve in Oregon. (Pix of Alky Bonneville car below....You MIGHT recognize it.

    Steve is headed for Columbia,Mo tonight. Check out the other thread. Don't know if he will have time to check in with us for a HAMB travelogue. I didn't even know he left town.

    I should have responded here, as I did a couple of hours ago on another thread.

    Someone PM'd me Steve's phone number and I called him. At that time he was at the Starbird Museum and will be here this evening to spend the night.

    It sounds like he's having a great trip.
