Q,

Looks like we wil be coming by to see you and the gang on Monday. Starting tomorrow at Roosville and heading your way. Best I can figure we be there Sunday, meet up with Dman to drop off DT400 Parts and then stop in Klim and visit for a while and head out.

Vinnie.

I must appologize for the status of the RR. I admit, riding and reporting are difficult at best, when trying to get the best pictures and all in the report.

Update.

Finished the TAT on Monday , traveled to Eureka, Mt and starting South tomorrow heading down a modified CDR.

Hopefully we can get a day off along the way to do some picture sorting and posting. If not, the RR will just have to stay on hold.

Like BigDog says, 'if we going to do it, we going to do it right".

Finally made it all the way to Port Orford. What a great trip, few hurdles but then that is part of the TAT. Will try to get the pictures sorted and a RR in ernest going.

FYI, the new helmet cam is working well. Hope to post some video in the RR when we get some edited.

Just turned my phone on and got the message, will try to call in a day or two.

Thrush?

Vinnie,

Might this be a Turbine powered Thrush? Look at that airfoil. LIFT!

Sorry again for the piss poor pictures while on the trail. Internet service has sucked at best so pics again have to wait.

Update;

Yes we did finish the TAT, great ride, great pictures to share when i get back to the report, and yes, Neveda kicked my ass again. Right to the last mile, Neveda had more to give ole Vinnie before getting out of there.

Hauled up to Roosville, MT, started South on a Modified CDR. Yesterday we made about 250 miles, dirt roads, dirt trailes, great ride, then worked our way into the Glacier National Park and rode about 30 miles of two track to the main gate on the West side. Very cool ride.

This morning woke up to 6" of snow, snow still falling and roads turning bad. Hung around East Glacier in the shack cabins we rented and finally decided to make a run South.

Dirt has turned to mud . Drove us back to the asphalt, even remote roads were slick and we. Made it to Choteau, MT and finally decided to end the day early as we were wet, cold, and loosing our effort to make gear changes to deal with the weather. Snowed all day here, but tomorrow looks better.

Plan to hit the road again tomorrow and keep Heading South to warmer temperatures. All in all, its a great trip, we have many pictures to share and some video I hope that will be good.

More later, when we get some ability to upload pictures.

Vinnie out.

Not sure what kind of cropduster it is. We discussed it briefly and Uncle Jack indicated it was a 1986, and yes it is a turboprop. Definate upgrade and awsome workhorse. I know it is a much better plane than the pawnee's they used to fly.

Like I said earlier, was cool to watch my cousin takeoff at the farm on the private strip. Allowed me to get upclose for sure.

Q~
Just spoke with Dman, sounds like steaks and all will be ready for Sunday arrival. Plan is to then meet up in Idaho Falls with your group on Monday morning before we start working our way thru Wyoming.

Time passes so damn quickly during the ride, hard to keep a good picture report as we ride. Formal RR looks like it will have to wait until we get done. Early mornings, long days, and tired evenings are definately becoming the norm.

See you Sunday and Monday Q.

Thanks Lee for the support. I have taken care of several of the Unfinished Business items on the list. Will cover them in the RR as they are part of what has been driving the need to finish the TAT.

Standby for pictures and RR. Wanting to do the post correctly when I have time and access to net services that really work.

Snow kicked my butt today for sure. But then it was a good day as well.
