    ITS ALIVE!! Not gonna attach a stupid video of truck running but it does run. Now, only have about 3 months of prep work to get done with absolutely no time to do it.

    No bueno.

    At this point I doubt I'll get on the road tomorrow night as expected either.

    any idea of your backup plan?

    my vagina hurts a little and I'm sick to death of pulling the top of this motor off to chase a small leak. Thinking I'm gonna run it as is and just carry a little coolant with me and then worry about it after GSMTR. If it becomes an issue I'll either deal with it up there or park it and ride bitch for the week.

    Dennis is rolling through ATL Sunday evening so he should be there sometime Sunday night too, claims to have a couple buddies with capable rigs coming too. Assuming I can get all my sh!t done on time I'll convoy up with him but not sure that will happen, if not then will head up Monday morning sometime.

    I told Jynx I had 5 gal of gas and a match in another thread and headed back in that direction. :cry:

    No backup plan. Just gonna keep working til I'm ready to go. I don't really want to drive through downtown Dallas traffic, even on the weekend, so departure Saturday night is now what I'm hoping for. Still hope to arrive to camp NLT Sunday night, but knowing nobody else will be there early Sunday makes that not a big deal either. Gotta be on the trail Monday though!

    Short version, replacement motor allocated and nearly installed. I wrestled with all day Saturday trying to mate it to the tranny with no luck. Ill be back at it this Saturday and hopefully have a running rig. After that moab prep will be full on tilt.
