Seriously??? Another road trip?

Yep... i was still having withdrawals from last year. I hear there is another swap meet in texas i haven't been to. I fill up my trailer with parts for member HCC and Dieselwrencher in iowa, then off to Kansas to meet bassxclr8r and rob wagner to deliver more parts.
Of course there is snow on the truck the morning i leave. Stayed in Cameron MO and woke up to 5" on my truck the next morning...

Another cool trip Eric. What do you do with the sheetmetal? Use it on your own projects?

Re: Seriously??? Another road trip?

Definitely looks like a great trip, and now that I know you deliver Iowa, I'll have to start a list!
Crazy to think we can't open the US-Canada border, hope we can get that fixed soon!

I always think i can do more than humanly possible... Realistically, i will probably cherry pick a few items and sell off a bunch in the future.

Small world indeed. Did you have the 2500hd that looked like mine?

You will just have to live through my adventures until the border opens again.

Re: Seriously??? Another road trip?

That blue cab in the first pic looks strangely familiar...

When I saw this post I thought you were already heading back out on another one. Glad the rest of the trip went as planned. It almost looks like you returned with more than you left with though, not that it's always a bad thing. Thank you again!

Yes, that was my truck. We left a little later than we wanted and had to wait in line 30 min to get in Saturday. Next year we'll have to get together and say hello

Finally got to unloading the trailer. Low hump cab looks good underneath...

Re: Seriously??? Another road trip?

Sounds like a fun trip and those cabs look to be very solid. I wish I had known you were in Cameron, I would have came over and bought you dinner.
