Let the Journey Begin!! West Virginia Bound

Recommended Posts

LarsJensen

Left San Fran for Chicago and landed about 6:45pm. Will try to hammer out most, if not all, of the 500 miles tonight to pick up the Sunscape. Bring on the Waffle House!!!

While in San Fran for work, I jumped over to Napa to pick up a 381 prop from a fellow BU member (thanks man!!). I managed to stay dry during the historic rain. And good news for all the locals who depend on water for ag and recreation. The reservoirs are full...and then some. 

(Started a new thread to cover this trip but want to say thank you to everyone for their guidance and shared enthusiasm to pick up my new BU!!!)

more to come.....

There are some Stuckey's out that way!

Funny story - rolled into a Waffle House one night at like 2am driving my Trans Am nonstop from Michigan to AZ one year in college with a buddy, ordered a big huge breakfast...server was a 40ish year old lady....stacked.....said "Madonna" on her name tag.  We were in our early 20's.  She almost left with us that night.

So how's the trip going?  Do you have a route thing on your phone you can screen shot to us?  Are you traveling solo?

Nice boat, congrats!

70 and 46? I didn't think you Wisconsin guys even waited until the rule of 100 was met. At least the Michigan crew doesn't @ahopkinsTXi.

5 1/4". I thought about purchasing a variable one but it looked chinsy with too much play. The trailer tracks really well and the truck did great. I think it likes pulling boats around!
