In preparation for the trip we had Bob at Vermont Home and Marine go through the rig and the trailer… Basic…

-Check & Service Oils of Engines 2x, Transmissions 2x, Blowers 2x, Drives 2x
-Check & Service Filters Oil 2x, Fuel 2x, Drives 2x
-Check & Services Bilge Pumps 3x
-Put Props 2x back on
-Check & Service Trailer Lights, Brakes, Tires, Brake Lines, Brake Fluids, Wiring…


And we dealt with….
-Check & Service on the Truck Oil Filters, Oil Levels Transmission and Engine, Break Fluids, Breaks, Tire Pressure and threads, New wipers…
-Brought 20 Gallons of winterizing Fluids, 4 Gallons of Engine Oil for the boat, 48 Spark Plugs, 5 Gallons of Windshield washer fluids, 140 gallons of Diesel Fuel, About 40 beers in the cooler (this reminds me I have to get a bucket of Kettle One Vodka..),bunch of DVD’s Some tunes but we rely on XM mostly.
-Brought three Cell Phones, One Lap top, Two GPS (truck & Boat), two digital cameras, enough clothes for three years and all the crap I am forgetting…

I am sure Jeremy brought some Boxing Gloves … he’s a single happy go lucky kind of guy but that’s none of my business…..

Also we took the Donkey D!cks off for the trip... . We're straight piping it with the 5" headers out the transom... Trying to make friends as usual...Can't wait to run...

We'll see how we feel but we'll go till we are too tired.

From the trips I have done before sometimes we manage to go straight through some times we stop for a catnap... But the idea is to get there!.

We're booked at Bahia Cabana Wednesday& Thursday waiting for the rest of the crew flying in.

Merging on 81 in Bringhamton NY

Just passed into PA on 81.....

Typing only when I am not driving....

Extra Tank---Filled up cheap initially and we'll load up in the Carolinas where it is cheaper... Need 240 Gallons for the boat also....
