understandable. after this trip my motor is coming out. i'm sending the trans off as it needs to be converted to a 4 speed. i built everything too tight so just easier to pull the motor to pull the trans. also i will be swapping to a better head. stock only flows 150 cfm and the bo port head bench flowed 220 cfm i believe. should see some improvement there. i will be setting the cam with a degree ring this time as well!  while its apart i want to see what its going to take to make a diff fuel tank out of stainless that holds more than 11 gals. i want to make the st a trip next year but need a 4 speed, more fuel capacity and a little more mid range would be nice.

We can do a group meal if you wish. The Mexican restaurant is open again also if no one is in the mood to cook. Of course,I think I remember your innards don't agree with that.  :D The group meals have always been the BEST!!!!

I haven't tried the Mex eatery since the new owners. It had gotten to be not so good before closing. I'll probably give it a try Labor Day .

Less than a month away... I sold my tow vehicle. Not to worry though, as I bought another one.

I'm really looking forward to some dune therapy. 😎

Got lots of work to get done to make this one.  Rebuild the spring hangers on the toy hauler and get the motor rebuilt in the truck. Will find out tomorrow just how bad the truck is.   Two new spring hangers and lots of gussets on the new and old ones to be sure this doesn't happen again. 

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

Fast, I don't think a lack of pick up or hauler should cancel your trip. I am sure everyone involved in this trip will bend over backwards to get you there. You aren't that far away. Heck, I bet people will trailer your buggy and provide any kind of "housing" necessary. Remember the 'old days'?!! (That could start a whole new thread!) If I had anything to offer, I would.
