Re: Yippie!!! from a Newbie!!
Well, I bought her! This is the shakedown tour. Starting in Yale, Michigan -> made it to Chicago on day 2; -> Springfield, Il on day 3; -> Encountered some vicious thunderstorms in Tulsa, OK, along route 44; spent the night in Stroud, OK, day 4; -> made it into the Panhandle, TX, and spent the night in Vega where I stumbled on the annual Vega Bluegrass Festival (Oh Yeah!!!), Day 5; -> Went south to Planview, TX to see my friends cotton farm, rode in one of those new John Deere's that drive itself by attaching to 10 satellites, then too hwy 70 into Ft Sumner (where Billy the Kid was shot, killed and buried!). Notice a funny smell from the engine. I have a broken fuel line that's dripping diesel on the hot motor...smells like turpentine. It is broken where it goes into the distribution manifold. EVERYTHING IN FT SUMNER CLOSES ON THE WEEKEND! I'm stuck till Monday! Oh well, it's the journey, not the destination, eh? Lots of friendly folks along the way!!, Day 6; to be continued.
