    Here I am, on the road again. There I go, turn the page.

    Well I'm off on the road again in another day plus some hours. This a continuation of the trip I took in 2011 and the goal is to fill in all the blank states Here I am, on the road again. There I go, turn the page.-201_4105.jpg I'll actually be going back thru Maine and into New Brunswick before turning west. My oldest son will be riding with me for the first 2.5-3 weeks until we hit Santa Fe. Planning on meeting up with as many of the other Moderators as possible and any members that wish to meet along the way. Needless to say I won't be doing a lot of moderating but I'll do what I can when I can. The only dates I'm planning on the DBA rally in Tenn. June 8-14, have to be in WV June 19th for crew chief a race car for the weekend and Bend Oregon Sept.13th for my sister's wedding. I'm figuring this will be a 4-6 month ride so I'm not in any hurry to be anywhere.
    Just need to check that the timing and advance curves haven't changed on the Ignitech unit and adjust the rear brake pedal. Ran a fuel mileage test today, speeds of 65-75 for 41.2 miles, used .748 gallons. Yeah that comes out as 55.08 mpg and also figured out my speedo/odometer is reading 2% slow. I suppose I could go back in and reprogram the Vapor unit by why bother. So tomorrow becomes laundry and packing day.

    I'll be posting here and on Facebook pretty much daily with pictures of the day. I travel with a cell phone, netbook and a Spot GPS tracking unit.
    This should be the link for the Spot unit SPOT Shared Page if some one wants to test it on or after May 1st and let me know if it's working.
    Facebook posts are in the public domain so you don't have to sign in to read them although they be pretty much the same as here but with more pictures

    Hi LDR,

    If you can remember this song, you're OLD! Wait, I can remember this song, DOH!

    Have a great journey, you know, - a proper journey where you go from somplace to someother place, not like reality TV where people say what a great journey it was when they get kicked out!

    Have a good time and we will be waiting for reports.
