    Hello All...I am a New member here.....Another one of Many cool sites I was unaware of.....:( I am A Chevy Lover to the Core...But I am Also A subaru Lover to the Core....They are related now after all...:) As well they share some coot traits....
    Both tend to leave good Mechanicals alone, allowing for great interchanges to occure....

    I am Posting this thread mainly looking for freight to fill my Car trailer Going from Eugene Oregon Down I-5 To L.A. And then Over to Pheonix Arizona.....I will be leaving around 3am Friday morning the 7th of Oct, I have a Confirmed stop in Chico Cailifornia, and after that or before that I am open to stops...?

    I have a 12'x6' deck running down there empty....I am pulling it with my 90 Suburban, and with cost of fuel thru the roof, I'd like to hual things down for folks if I could ,to help soften the fuel cost.....On my return trip I will have a Car on the trailer, but the rear of the burban will be open to parts as well..?

    So if any of you guys here have anything needing hauled south and are close enough to connect with me off the I-5 corridor, Please post here as well as e-mail me and if you like call me also.....

    I have posts on several subaru Sites as well....and So far only a few minor pieces are going with me south.....

    Mods...If you deem this needs to be elsewhere feel free to relocate, But if you would please sticky it till Oct 7th.....

    Thanks, John in Oregon

    I live off Beltline and Hwy 99 South....I went to Willamette Myself.....:)

    I am not a true Member( no Pay yet) ...I saw in the Pacific Region there is a Member needing a 6.2 Diesel Motor to go from Corvallis just north of me down to Redding Ca....Any chance you could PM him and See if it still needs hauled...? Give him this Post link...:)

    Thanks, John

    John, welcome. :waytogo:

    Cam sent me a PM to check with you on his diesel and then picking up a cab I bought from him in which I need delivered to Kansas.
    However, since you are on the way to Arizona, if I could find some place in Arizona to store the cab, preferrably another member, it would be that much closer to me.
    Unless you could go out of the way to make a little detour, say, thru Colorado on the way to Arizona, that would be better.
    I don't know. Let us know what you can do or have in mind. Also let us know a ball park range of your asking fees for deliveries.

    Again, welcome and hope to do something that would help all of us out. :waytogo:

    What Part of Colorado works..?

    I could possibly do Denver...? I am going to look at My options.....If I do Cam In redding grab your Cab then Do my drop in Chico, I can slide south then east on I-80 thru S.L.C. Utah and end up over in Denver...Then shoot south from there...Let me see what Milage from Chico to Denver is Via I-80......Do you have a Place I could Drop in Denver...? If Not I may have...:)

    Ok, Looking on mapquest....If I go Chico Thru Salt Lake City and Then hit I-80 or State Hwy 40..( not sure how Ugly it is ) It is about 1200 miles from Chico To Denver.....How Much would you be Willing to pay to get it to Denver....? And if there are any others with parts on that Route speak up....:)
    Denver is 980 Miles Out of my way to Pheonix....But if I can pay for Fuel, then It is Doable .....

    On that note, From Denver I will be going south west thru Santa Fe N.M. and Albuquerque....So Let me know If there any other parts needing run along that route...???????

    Talk soon, John

    Oh yeah, Denver would work fantastic! I know a few personal friends from my hometown living there. Need to get ahold of them to see if they could hold it.

    Or, if someone on this site wouldn't mind having a cab take up some space, I could come get it at their place, too.

    Man, this is finally starting to sound good to get the cab home. At last! :bow: :waytogo:

    Let me do some checking John. Thanks again! :saweet:

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention the "offer" for the fuel cost.

    What are you driving and what mileage does it get? :thinking: :ears:

    If you end up going through SLC, I'd be interested in having you pick up a 3rd seat for a burb and a NP241 I've been trying to get down to the Phoenix area for a few months now.

    You're not taking the cab to Denver anymore? I don't know if I can pay enough to make it worth your while. How far out of your way would it be?
