  1. I didn't take many great pics on the trip, but here is the truck in Maine. Looks like Fall is early this year. The trip took me four days and 7 hours, averaging 11.3 hours of driving per day. I didn't add all the gas mileage, I was just relieved to pay less than $2 a gallon on most of the trip.
  2. I'm just outside of Albany, NY on my rest-stop adventure today and have been making good progress. Spent the night at a truck stop along Lake Erie. Woke up to the coldest morning I have experienced in a while... but it felt good. Started up the MJ and coolant started pouring out on the ground. Turned out to be just a loose connection on the lower radiator hose. Pulled the air box and tightened her up, Good to go... Then started it up and it began leaking from the other side. Turned out the upper lose was loose too! My MJ hasn't ever seen colder temps. It was originally from FL/GA area.
  3. I am in the middle of a 3,141 mile road trip in my ’91 Comanche and currently taking a break at a rest-stop in Indiana. So far things have gone well. The MJ still has a few minor oil leaks including the rear main seal and the stupid oil fill cap, but otherwise rolling along good so far. The SofTopper has worked and I purchased a 4 inch thick foam bed on foambymail.com along with a Coleman 0 degree sleeping bag to avoid paying for hotels. Seems more comfortable than my bed at home. The strangest aspect of the trip has been the lack of clouds. NONE. The whole way there hasn’t been a
  4. Smart move. Thanks for your service. Always good to get out of the house at least once a day. I would keep working, even part time. She will appreciate the alone time as well.
  5. LA police were caught flat footed over the weekend, but they rallied yesterday. It took them a few days to coordinate a response to the criminals who are using targeted hit and run looting with convoys of cars. Police were much faster to respond and many arrests were made. There were also continued acts of courage by the local population helping to guard businesses. It was a day full of high speed chases and cops running on foot in all directions. I am hoping the message is clear and that things will settle down.
  6. Serious looting in Santa Monica today. A small antifa looking gang, dressed in black, started smashing at the front doors of REI with small sledgehammers. A thin redheaded girl threw herself in front of the store trying to stop it. The young men easily pushed her out of the way a couple times. Then someone in the gathering crowd threw something and hit her. She stood her ground and went back again until her pudgy friend with a "No Looting" sign also confronted the men. The two of them somehow saved the store. It was nuts.
  7. Last night was crazy here. What started as a peaceful daytime demonstration about a mile or so from where we live turned ugly by the evening. My girlfriend and I watched on the local news network as many small businesses around us, open for the first time in months, were looted and destroyed. The National Guard is here, so maybe things will mellow out, but I am angry that nothing was done to stop the looting. Cars were lining up outside shops and with no time limit, the gangs looted for hours at levels I've never seen before. Most of the grocery stores and other shops in our neighb

  9. I hear some truckers are having a tougher time getting fed on the road because sales are being limited to drive-thrus. Food places need to figure a work around for this. Keeping truckers healthy and fed should be a priority. It is unreal the number of trucks it takes to keep everything up and running.
  10. Let us know if it happens Pete... It's a rag tag bunch of us out here, but maybe we can get a club of Comanches together somehow.
  11. My girl has to work on Thanksgiving, so we celebrated early tonight. I am on my third trip to the fridge for leftovers already. Gravy. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
  12. Yeah, here is the Novak link for info on trannys: http://www.novak-adapt.com/knowledge/engines/swap-guides/chevy-buick-gm/xj-swap
  13. Camping at Guitar Lake must be incredible for night sky viewing. It's on my radar now, thanks.
  14. Also... It's best to purchase firewood in a local town before entering this type of area. The Mojave averages around 2 inches of rain per year (usually in Jan or Feb) so it feels like you are on Mars. I am totally mesmerized by plants growing out of rock crevasses and other inhospitable locations. In a lot of the forested areas of CA the burn risk is increasingly very high, so during much of the year fires are a real bad idea. Had a nice fire though and managed to eat three hot dogs, a full bag of Sea Salt and Vinegar chips and a 40 of Coors light before drifting off to stare at the Milky Way
