Both my radiator seems blew out Wednesday night as I was going through the Tri-Cities. Called KennyW who was in Seattle but had a radiator at his place near where I was. So I went over and did a radiator swap and then went on my way towards Portland. Stopped and slept at a rest area and continued the last hour to Portland Thursday morning. Got my stuff set up before T-Roy got his stuff there. Kenny brought his stuff down late Thursday. The headers in the foreground were ones we found dumped off way up on a backroad near Ione last fall. I started at 5 bucks and ended up getting $1 for them. My goal was to see if I could turn crap I found into cash... and I proved my theory right. Found a good use for my old radiator. People kept asking, "How much for the Rock?". So I had to write this. Saturday... the main day. Can you say RAIN? We tried making a bridge to lure people across the swamp to view our stuff. Saturday afternoon... we finally figure out that shelter is good. We moved out of our spot upground. Technically, we asked for and got the same spot as last year. But they moved the number system around... so physically we were down the road from last year's spot in the lowlands instead of a nice graveled area. Sunday rolled around and I just had to buy these new 40" Ground Hawgs for $300 with a set of rims too. Only thing is one had started to be transformed into a pro-mud drag paddle. Oh well, they won't see pavement anyways. (Notice the sun comes out the last day as we are leaving). From the Swap Meet I was supposed to visit my Aunt (on my dad's side of the family) in McMinnville, Or on Monday, and then drive to Seattle and take care of some parts I was dropping off and then pick up my Aunt and Uncle (on my mom's side) as well as my mom's best friend at SeaTac on Wednesday the 12th. They were flying in from the Philippines after recovering from the gunshot wounds sustained when I was there 3 weeks prior. I found out they got bumped up and would arrive at SeaTac Monday at noon. So after meeting up with Colbystephens shortly, I went to McMinnville real quick Sunday night and visited my aunt in the memory care center (92yrs old). Drove from McMinnville to Tacoma (McChord AFB) Sunday night and parked on a street outside McChord AFB at 2am and slept. Woke up at 7 and dropped off parts with Dillon and then headed towards SeaTac. When I finally got the call to drive up to the main Terminal at SeaTac airport, I had alot of people looking at me as I slowly drove up in this: Luckily no airport security questioned me for suspicious loads. A quick stop in North Bend at Arby's. My aunt and uncle's first time in a Fullsize Chevy... first time in America too. My Uncle and my mom's best friend were doing well having recovered from the gunshot wounds. And this is the last chapter to a rather long story I posted up in the lounge. I'll probably sit down and write a descriptive ending for that story (which would be this trip as the ending). Anyways, made it back home $337.40 in fuel later after having sold a bunch of parts, buying some parts, visiting a few friends, family, and giving a somewhat happy ending to a story that didn't have on yet. Now to sort through all the crap I brought back with me from the Swap Meet.
