What a great (long) weekend! Lots of driving. So many hours in a bus. My body hurts! Haha 1600 ish miles for me from utah. Yesterday was HOT. Got to Vegas at 230am crashed for 4 hrs and when we left around 730 it was already 90 degrees… I started stopping every hour it seemed like to cool down and get ice haha. You don’t realize how much of a grade it is from Vegas to cedar city until it’s hot and you’re in a bus! It’s almost all uphill haha but luckily it cooled off in cedar city and we grabbed a long lunch and chilled out. I made it home at about 6. Long day. Lots of stops. The Goodrich 58 westy ran like a top! I had to readjust idle mixture really quick in so cal at sea level. And I had one clogged idle jet. But other than that all it took was ICE haha.
it was so nice to meet Tom Unke and Creig and their families! Creigs place is cool! And that Jerk chicken was delicious!
so cool that Tom H came out to OCTO as well! We had the KCW customer camp at Franz’s swap spot! Franz was selling shit like hot cakes!

sounds like a great trip ! Ive never been to OCTO…
Do you really think the ice works ??ColeBModeratorJune 8, 2022 at 9:03 amPost count: 2612
Ya! Matt’s new garagemahal! Haha he bought up the house right behind his house in Huntington Beach. He tore the garage down and built a big 3 car garage! Big for so cal! Now he’s got a baller 2 story house… but the levels are separated by a shared backyard haha
You should make it to one OCTO bubba! Sounds like June 2023 is the next BD gathering OCTO. We will have a few cars there if we are in the USA. That’s supposed to be when Peking to Paris is. But I’m guessing we will get pushed to 2024 with Covid still an issue and the Russia/Ukraine conflict going on.
On the ice… I don’t think it hurts… and it’s gotta do something. Would be cool to test it someday. But I have no worry gauges to test with! It’s a cheap way to have a little piece of mind. Makes you stop more often too haha. So you can re up on ice! Maybe that helps tooRustabusParticipantJune 8, 2022 at 9:04 amPost count: 2595
