We made it, and with minimal hiccups... We were noticing awful smelling smoke out the exhaust but only when off throttle at in upper RPMs, so downhill. Many folks told us many things were wrong. Anything from bad valves to jake brake problem (it doesn't have a jake brake, ha!) Finally, in Gellette Wy we ran in to a guy who knew the problem immediately. He charged $160 and advanced the (high pressure) mechanical fuel pump with a bent wrench. He said it had one more adjustment left before a new chain.... I must admit I can still smell a hint of the odor when descending a hill, but it is soooo much better... And we made it so..woo! here are a few success pics..
Gotta show the ole Corn Palace
The coolest hitchhiker of the trip, he was with us for a few hundred miles... his dog Lucky
Nice human compost toilet atop an Oregon mountain..
Bus on 'da beach..
The last pic we got before the digital camera died, forgot the charger. There was forest fires and as unfortunate as that is, the effect is amazing
