    I am in the process of planning my route from Oregon to Colorado, to Illinois, to Minnesota, then back to Oregon. Trip is tenatively planned for October. If anyone needs a vehicle transported along that route... I have a 1 ton diesel tow rig available on this trip.

    VACATION /forums/images/icons/grin.gif
    I'm from Illinois and my wife is from Minnesota. Heading back while it is still somewhat warm to see the fall colors. Should be leaving around Oct 10 and returning Oct 20-24? Nothing set in stone yet.

    Should have seen my vacation last year... Drove to Illinois from Central Oregon in a 1966 GMC 3/4 ton pulling a homemade 6x10 flatbed trailer loaded with 60-66 GMC parts (1 cab, 6 doors, 4 front fenders, 2 hoods, 2 tailgates, and 6 rims/tires...) Then stopped in Utah and picked up my sister who just graduated from College and moved her and all her stuff back to Illinois.

    Crossed the Wyoming border and weighed in at 10,000# combined. Got 11 mpg the whole way out and 20 miles per quart of oil /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif I even came back without a bed on the truck pulling the trailer empty and only got 9 mpg coming back.
    Pics of that 1966 GMC truck on the way back empty are in my webshots album. Webshots link
