Lance lives up by Grants Pass Oregon. Sounds like a good plan going to Stockton. Should be lots of people to caravan with from there. Was trying to get my bus to the shop this morning, just in case I decided to tag along, but you know how those other things complacate your life.John JonesKeymasterJanuary 27, 2018 at 9:03 amPost count: 4219

I got my deluxe job done for me…. on to my mango job… I took the bus to the paint store yesterday and had them match it to your old original paint. They told me the seagull grey was a bitch…. 😉 😉 😉 😉 wouldn’t think would ya?? Then… I have two doors I need to prime… then… I can think about leaving!!!!!!!!!!
inbetween projects… I pulled up all the maps / routes… I wish I could figure out how to do a screen shot on my computer screen and post it?? anyone???
My First Preference is this……. Leave Sometime tomorrow (Sunday) before lunch. Get to Baker Hot Springs in Delta Utah.. 310 miles. Then Monday morning leave Baker Hot Springs and head to Spencer Hot springs… 317 miles… Tueday morning.. Had to Reno, Visit with Jim Cusato and Mitch Case if I can set it up…. 192 miles to reno…. then still tuesday, I;m thinking lunch time, head to Damons house in Stockton, 181 miles. Thats EXACTLY 1000 miles…. 😉 😉 😉 The relaxing way…… 😉 😉 😉

I’m 1/2 hour south of Stockton. Maybe hit up Justin with the notchback, he’s in sac.. what about smitty? Only this site can we do this type of stuff, hit the road and someone will let you crash in.
I’ve always thought it would be cool to show up to one of my planned stops and there already be a bus or two, hanging out, holding the best spot… Maybe holding a beer too….. 😉 😉ColeBParticipantJanuary 27, 2018 at 12:15 pmPost count: 933

Plan on it.. I’ll show you guys what I take… it’s really not much… I try to keep it maintained and not drive like a dumb ass and break it.. If I do get wild hair.. well…. It’s a risk…. Pat has gotten to it…. tranny fluid, including reducs, engine oil, look in all the drums, check the bearings, repack probably, remove rockers, retorque heads if need be, do valves, done. My Dells are happy as a clam..
When I grow up, I wanna be John Jones!!!!!!John JonesKeymasterJanuary 28, 2018 at 6:55 amPost count: 4219John JonesKeymasterJanuary 28, 2018 at 10:04 amPost count: 4219
