Mr. Blizzard ... thanks for clarifying. For a while some of thought you didn't know what you were talking about. There are enough guys out there like that, we didn't need another one!

Blizz, you forgot to add: wife asking you questions, the phone ringing, and the children fighting with each other.

We're planning on heading to the HDT Rally in Hutchinson, Kansas this coming week. I think Star Dreamer is coming. It would be great to see anybody else that can make it. Driving from St. Paul probably leaving on Friday night, 10-5-12.

Back in Carlisle, PA for another old car swap meet.

By the way Ed, were you also back here this weekend for another dog show? I didn't think about it until I got back on the forum tonight, but there was a big twin screw toter like yours with the dog run setup at the flying J when we pulled into town the other night, maybe it was you guys?

I just figured "how many white twin screw toters full of dogs could there be in the world?", apparently at least two of you.

We're off to Louisville for another old car parts swap meet. Then we get a few weeks at home to finish the box on the Topkick, then the first real trip with that truck to Daytona for the Turkey Rod Run (last show of the year), and then a month off in the Keys.

HotRod,
There are a few of us dog people running around the country in the white rigs. I am taking some time off with the rig right now until March unless this winter is mild like last year. I will use the big white van and say at motels. Just do not like the idea of driving the rig in snow and salted roads.
Sounds like you are on the road a lot right now. Safe travels to you.

Ed

Default Members on the road including your current locations.

It's worth a try. I'll start out with St. Paul, MN. Our sticks & bricks for now. Not sure when we're going to get the rig out next. I let my son and his girlfriend take it to the Country Jam Music Fest in Eau Clair, Wisconsin, last weekend. He said it was the only Truck Conversion that he saw in the campgrounds. Anybody coming through MN I'd love to buy you a cold one.

Been parked lately, but took the bikes to West Virginia for a couple of days. Nice to hit the little roads sometimes that you are afraid to venture down in a big truck. Passed some 10% grade signs, so I was glad we were on the bike.

Going to be in Carlisle PA first weekend in August for the All Truck Nationals. Everything from minitrucks to big rigs.
