Loaded up, strapped down, and ready to roll out in the morning. Stopping in St Louis to meet up with the other half of our caravan and then driving to Indy.  We'll make the rest of the journey Friday morning with a couple of sidetracks along the way I'm sure.  Looking forward to getting out there.  Safe travels everyone!

The Mrs brought the camera so I will do my best to at least get pics up when we get back unless I can figure out how to post pics from Flickr on my phone. Sitting in a hotel room outside of Indy for the night. Rest of the journey tomorrow. So far so good. Gas mileage sucks with an enclosed trailer but it was nice going through rain showers knowing its still clean lol.

We made it to our second stop outside of ST Louis. Our posi is locking up so I added friction modifier today so we should be good now. Headed out tomorrow for Dayton, ready to hook up with everyone.

I hope that takes care of your issue.  We are heading out of Indy around 10:30. Depending on what time y'all left, you most likely will catch us. We have a toddler that likes to tinkle ????  All good though. Great weather. Only hiccup is getting behind something that slung some sort of tar/grease and it's on the front of the truck and trailer. Not bad but doesnt come off with washer fluid or glass cleaner. Thank goodness it doesnt streak lol.  I'd be all kinds of ticked if the car got it.

We got here at 4:30, we washed the car and checked in to our hotel (Clarion). The car did great 17-18 mpg and we drove 1390 miles, even the A/C was working.

We pulled in at 4:30 as well. Ended up doing some antiquing in Indy after checking out of the hotel so we got here later than we thought. Had to make a walmart run......of course. Gonna do some cleaning when we get back and just hang out by the trailer with anyone that wants to swing by. Look for the red trailer with the gold birds on side of it lol
