    Taking 1st test drive tomorrow...from L.A. to Utah. Could use phone #\'s

    Hi,

    Well I'm test driving the rig for the first time since I got it. Taking it from Los Angeles to Utah and back. Hope it works [​IMG].

    In case it doesn't anybody willing to give me phone numbers if I get stuck? I'm going up I-15 all the way to just north of Salt Lake.

    I'll have my ham radio on, call sign KG6JLI.

    Wish me luck! [​IMG]

    BYOB unless you like 3.2 beer....We always say that drinking Utah beer is like F%#king in a canoe...damn close to water.

    What areas will you be skiing? You might want to try Snowbasin where in less than a month they will have the Olympic downhill.

    Good luck on your roadtrip...we live in the upper north eastern corner so I don't think we could be of much help if you broke down.

    AJ, not a beer drinker, but I have some awesome red wines and a nice sipping rum and some kick a$$ cognac that I'm bringing.

    BTW, I am going to Snowbasin. Been skiing there and Powder Mountain for years now. Know all the locals, hang at the Shooting Star... it was a best kept secret for a long time. Oh, well. I'll be there til opening ceremonies unless the snow craps out, then I'll go where it's good.

    Thanks for the offer of help!

    Were only 24 behind you, I do carry a tow strap - hehe. We'll look for K5s by the side[​IMG]. I'll PM you our cell #'s. You gonna have your HT up Sunday night? How about 146.4 2M simplex if you are. We'll holler if it's not too late.

    Mark,

    I PM'd you. Truck's not quite ready so I'm leaving Sunday too, about the time you are. I check in with you on cell, but should try out the HT. 146.4 simplex..got it.

    Keep that tow strap in your rig. Just in case [​IMG]

    I live in Sacramento.... so if you change your mind (you might wanna watch the weather report there's supposed to be a bad storm hammering our area and moving into Nevada tonight and tomorrow...) and take Hwy 99 or I-5 and then cut over later on you can call me for help.... I'll PM you some numbers. I'll be out and about but at the very least I can help you find someone who can help you if you need it...! Or you can call me so I can post any questions on repairs and phone you with the replies if you need em.....
