    This is Mrs. GoKarterGo. Dan broke down on way to Sonora. Lost rear driveline and slip yoke out of NP208. If anybody can help...please respond and I will give you his cell #. He will try to make it to Oakdale.

    If it ain't broke.......Don't fix it....

    I won't be going up there this weekend an ddon't have the parts to fix him if I was. However I can put his rig on my trailer and take him home if it comes to that. PM me for my home number and have him call me.

    Thank you. This is new to me, so I'm trying to figure how to work things around this site. I gave him Burt's phone #, so now I'm waiting to hear from him to see what he can do. I'll keep you posted.

    I gotta spare rear driveshaft with a slip yoke if he needs it. How did this happen in the first place?

    Re: GoKarterGo Broke down in Escalon...needs help!

    wish i would have seen this earlier.....i would be glad to help. sounds like its too late to help now. im thinking all the cali members should swap info. (name,number,town,etc.) just in case. it could easily be kept in your wallet or glovebox for emergency purposes. never know when you might need a helpful hand. even for short trips it could be useful. what do you guys think? im in........later tmanofcali

    Spoke to Mr. GoKarterGo and he is at Burt's house fixing things. Thank you Burt and everyone who helped or offered help. Despite breaking down, he is still determined to go play in the snow!?!

    If it ain't broke.......Don't fix it....

    Re: GoKarterGo Broke down in Escalon...needs help!

    Thank you everybody.... We got a new slip yoke at a Chevy dealer near there.. And put it back together at Burts house.. And still got to play in the snow a little.. I also sliced my hand open reaching in to the tool box.. I had to get 6 stiches.. But even a bad weekend could turn in to fun... Thank you Burt.. I could have kissed you...LOL... But I think your wife would have gotten mad... I have meet people on this site that I probably would have never have meet.. So Thank you CK5 also.. And Burt what kind of Beer do you drink. If everybody from CA is interested.. I would be more then willing to start a post for phone numbers and addresses.. They could email them to me and I will put them together and email them back to who ever sent me one.. It is up to you guys Thanks again to everbody...Dan

    If it ain't broke.......Don't fix it....

    Re: GoKarterGo Broke down in Escalon...needs help!

    Dan I made up a new section to my site just for that last night. For anyone that is interested I can give them the URL, If you PM me and agree to put your info on there. For security reasons my opinion is you must agree to submit your info and agree to not use the info for anything bad!!! before I'll give you the url.

    GoldRush, I don't really like 'posting' info on a web site. Even if someone has to know the URL to get to it that doesn't rule out no do good web surfers! I like the idea of have list but we sould keep the W.W.W. out of it. Just my .02c

    Re: GoKarterGo Broke down in Escalon...needs help!

    That sounds like a good Ideal. Although I'm in Colorado now I plan to move back Around the first of March sometime, it would be cool to be abel to get a hold of people in CA just in case anything happend. I'll be going on I-40 Through AZ in to S CA and on up to SAC by way of I-5. It would be cool to know there are people out there that care when the sh!t hit's the fan.
    I'll have a cell phone and C.B. for the trip just in case.

    Well thanks for cumming up to the snow. It was fun[​IMG]
    Marsha even had a good time digging in the snow. Thanks Dan for plowing the way home and Burt for the winch. Thanks Bozz (sp?) for helping with the digging also.

    Can't wait till Blazer Fest 2002 this year. [​IMG]
