    If I'd have known it was only going to be the 2 of you going I'd have made it happen too. I really enjoyed the back half of the big adventure when it was down to only a few trucks.

    Same here, and the fact we needed to get at least 8hrs of travel in yesterday. We ended up pushing all the way back to California and made it home around 1am this morning.

    We were afraid of that so we stayed south and took 70 across to 50 through Utah/Nevada.

    I know that you probably already know this, but locking the converter is very important. I have a toggle switch on my '70 and '72. It can be a pain, but it's better than not locking it.
