    Just got home from Inertia's place , put her up on his hoist and gave her the once over underneath , found a loose bolt on the trans pan that had some seepage and more disturbing loose saddle bolts on the rear u-joint , 1 was loose enough to be almost out and there was 1 that wasn't even finger tight on the other saddle good thing we checked everything it's amazing I hadn't spit the drive shaft . Other than those 2 issues we tinkered with 1 of the air bleeds to fix a little dripping and everything else checked out good so she should be ready to go . No I haven't packed yet and I'm pickng up 3 new gas cans tomorrow , still trying to find something uniquely BC to bring , maybe I'll stuff a Leaf Licker in the trunk eh LOL !

    PS no I'm not bringing any of that -4500km and every cop along the way looking at my BC plates thinking I must be hauling some eh .

    Depends how I feel and I guess who I let drive the car EH ! LOL , Inertia has been tinkering with the carb , I flushed and rebuilt it myself after last years trip and it has been pretty good so hopefully the extra rich condition is gone for good , I am looking at properties the week before the show so it might even turn out the car stays behind if I find the right place . For the record the car went both ways the year before the head gasket incident and would have made the trip back last year but with the carb dumping fuel the way it was the fuel cost on the trip out went from just under 900 on previous trips to close to 1300 last year or about the cost of the train ride .

    PS you going to finally drive that Duster of yours beyond the entrance to the trailer park and join us this year ?

    PPS give the little woman a kiss for me eh !-Cheers Chris

    You are making me think I should drive my Dart the 7 hrs this year rather than trailer it the way I usually do Chris.

    I am hoping to be able to make an appearence or two. We are scheduled to work an O.T. shift Saturday morning, and my better half is working the entire weekend also, so I won't be doing the sausage thing for everyone this year. (sorry)
    I will be playing it by ear for Sunday, as my daughter is leaving Ontario to start a new job as a registered nurse in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. She is heading out on Sunday, so I will be home to see her off, but I hope to still be able to go to the show to have my chance on the giveaway car!
    I'm hoping for sunny skies and a safe trip for everyone! :cheers:

    Hey Chris I work in both Beaverton and Uxbridge and live in Lakefield so if you're close by on your travels gimme a shout. Theres a spare bed here and we could muster up some grub.We don't have a shade to bring. Just what my gut casts lol.
    Car is getting closer to fireup. I have an interview Monday so gotta prep for that. But hoping to hear it fire soon.
    Save driving and hold your breath while in Brooks!
