    I'm a polar bear and even I don't run my a.c. on the trail.

    I was wondering about you yesterday, if you were going to make it. Glad to see it worked out!

    What route are you taking?

    Yep, I've been so busy with work and getting it ready that I've failed to update my build thread. Got plenty of pics and I'll try to update it after the trip.

    I haven't got my route there set in stone just yet. Going to make it to Amarillo today. After that, it will be a scenic route of some sort through Colorado, camping the whole way.

    I just finished installing 2 ryobi generators and a parallel kit on the semi. I can run the AC at night in the middle of nowhere now.

    Hopefully I won't need it.

    Turns out the root of the coughing and sputtering was a fouled spark plug, though the dizzy did help some by providing a better spark (cheap aluminum one v. a good brass one)

    It threw no codes of any kind this whole time.

    OOOOpppppppppssssss. Now I'm having to work on my Junk instead of wash it and pack clothes. Oh well it's just time and money right?

    Still trying to make it down Thursday afternoon though.
