    Newt here
    Well it looks like all is set. I've told the Lads to be at the shop for 5am. I think they were suprised that there is 2 in a day.
    The truck got an oil change, a wash, and the summer tires and wheels back on. The trailer, got the wheels pulled and the bearing checked and repacked, new seals all the way around, lights checked, breaks checked and suspension checked. Did I miss anything?

    I hope to be back by Saturday, with the Deuce in tow
    Thanks to all for your prayers and understanding...Newt

    I've got enough to get me to Buffalo. Then it's that cheap yankee fuel. My F150 holds about a tanker truck load. At least that is what seems when I pay.
    Thanks...Newt

    Drive careful!!! I imagine the seller has heard the story of what happened by now. I also imagine he was flabbergasted and saddened as the rest of us were.

    Looking forward to seeing pics of your buddy's dream.

    Hope you got all the proper paperwork in order to get back across the boarder. If not it can be problems. Good luck

    Newt,

    This is another roadtrip the two of you share together. Make it a safe one, I'm sure you'll remember every moment.
    My condolences to you, and Dusty's family. He was a great guy!

    Hi Newt. We've lost a good friend in Dusty...but gained another in you. A big warm welcome to the hamb, pal. We'll all be with you in spirit, and thinkin' of you guys while you're on you're trip. I'm sure we'd all love to have you share with us as you go...if you can. If not, we'll see ya when you get back. One suggestion if I may? Get first-floor rooms, and park that truck/trailer/roadster right outside your room. Maybe slip the attendant something to help keep watch. All the best to you and the "Lads". They didn't realize there were two five-oclocks? Hahahahahaha! God bless. :) Rick

    Hey Newt,.... I find it a privilege to pray for those who ask for it,... after following some of the threads and posts, I can see where this adventure is going to be filled with mixed emotions,.....(as it is in life) It's not just about the destination, it's about the Journey.

    Your on my prayer list for traveling mercies,..... (Oh yeah,.... and we want to see pictures !) :D
