    I have to fly to Texas in a week or so to get his car that was stolen by his step son who decided he didnt wanna be around when the $800 phone bill came in. HMMM lets see, get chewed out for an $800 phone bill or face a grand theft auto charge? The kid aint the shrpest tool in the shed. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Needless to say the car was prob beaten to a pulp but is said to be OK. I am skeptical.

    Ill be going from DFW to Central Fla w/ the car, that I am hoping will make it. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif Could folks along that way, that wouldnt mind helping out if need be, drop me a PM w/ your # incase I have problems along the way? I am hoping to make a clean run back w/ the car but I am planning for the worst. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Think of it as the CK5 Auto Club. /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Wish I could make a "trip" out of it, and meet some of yall while Im going thru, but I have to be back at work on Monday so its gonna be shift driving straight thru. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Thanx Josh Ill write'em down.

    I dont have any details yet, but it will be over a weekend. I think he said fly out Sat. morn. and head right back. Im actually gonna try to get him to NOT go and go w/ my wife or a buddy. I dont think itll be too hard to convince him since hes afraid to fly. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Re: ROAD TRIP, picking up my uncles stolen car in Tx.

    My uncle said its like 19 hrs straight. The kid made it in a bit over a day. We were all suprised he made it out of Fla w/out having a wreck. He is a TERRIBLE driver. Not crazy or anything like that, he just cant drive.

    Its a white New Yorker. The down sized front wheel drive one.

    Sometimes I hate being his favorite nephew. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Oh yeah call Steve.... hell help out. GRRRR! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Im not sure of the route yet. I only talked to him briefly while he was at the shop today. Hes made the run back and forth a few times from DFW to where we live so I THINK he has a regular route. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif I tried to call him a few hrs ago to discuss this little road trip but as can be expected his phone is turned off. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Re: ROAD TRIP, picking up my uncles stolen car in Tx.

    WOW thanx yall! I am getting PMs faster than I was able to reply to them. As I am replying to one I am getting 2 more. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I had to come out here for a few min to check this and reply to anyone here too. Ill be heading back in to finish replying in a few min.

    Guys thanx again! My uncle called me a while ago from work and told me he is still trying to find a truck to transport it on and that driving it is a last resort. BUT he has been looking for almost a month now and had no luck so thats why we are planning this.

    I wish I could make some stops and shoot the breeze for a bit w/ everyone but I REALLY dont think thats gonna be possible.

    MAYBE I will be able to plan where we will be stopping for gas and such and try to hook up w/ some of yall along the road and such. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    BTW its looking like well be taking I-10 for the most part.
