Closer each day!!

It’s getting closer and closer!! Have most of it back together! Might still have 1 bolt issue…I’ll know better this evening. Cross your fingers!! The 23rd is getting close!!

Getting closer to Road Ready!!

Succeeded today in getting the exhaust manifold off! So glad! And from what I can tell, there are no sheared off bolts. Hope to remove it from the engine compartment tomorrow, clean it up & re-tap the bold holes and have it back on…

Headed North Tomorrow

Tire Issue!

Quiet Nite! Long Miles!! :-)

Made it to Louisiana first day! 370 miles!  I’m way out of “shape” to cover that many miles in one day. But I’m wanting to get this first leg done & over with! Time to be on the beach! Going to try for either…
