    Well guys I am gonna be scarce for the next month or so. I am leaving for Penasacola Fl Tuesday Morning. My planned route is essentially I10 all the way across. I will stop in El Paso the first night and then Houston the second night. My goal is to get into Loxley Alabama where my Brother lives on Thursday Evening. I will try to get on here and see how the brother hood is doing while I am away. I will also let you guys know when I am on my way back. I intend to make the trip back in 2 days.

    If anyone is along that route I would appreciate some contact info incase I have a problem.

    Thanks

    Ira

The wife wont let me take HER laptop on the trip:( . Who knows maybe the school will be totally lame and I will have nothing to do but browse CK5 all day:D .

    Well I left a day later than planned but I finally am in Loxely Alabama for the weekend with my Brother. Which we are gonna rebuild 2 NP-208s:D one in his J*(P and one in his buddies K5. I made a marathon drive from Las Cruces NM to Baton Rouge LA in 15 hours last night so I am a little tired today:doah:. Just wanted to let everyone know I am still alive.:D

    I was gonna but since I am not moving to Norfolk there is no reason to bring it out here and have to feed it. After I got here I was wishing that I brought it with me but am glad I did not. I would still be on the road if I did and would have only gotten about 8-10 MPG:doah:. I only spent about $120 in gas the whole way here:D.
