Upcoming epic road trip…NY PA MD DE VA and back

Post by abscate »

Will probably take the T4 for self contained camping …not all trips go as planned

The T4 had a motor mount failure and Caitlin had to comretrieve me from DE in Shagg. More pictures to come.

Fenders delivered, cylinder head delivered, transmission delivered, seats picked up , door picked up, New friends m acquired, internet to IRL transition, smooth.

T4 safely back home. Had to flat bed her back due to loss of brakes and a possible bearing/wheel


Loaded up Jane Bond, and the metal vultures took her to car heaven

Off to ferry, driving 60 instead of 65, gas stop, food stop....missed the 0700...caught the 0800

:lol:
