Looks like Trey and I are headed up in the 2fiddy pulling a car trailer to Mass and dropping it there and then picking it up loaded for the return trip. May overnight in Norwalk Ct with Neil. The rest of the trip is fairly fluid.

Raub the Baltimore airport is right off of 95.. just saying

Around the Portland area…. not getting too much from this storm as of yet. The Midcoast may be getting more than us though.

Ron,
May take you up on that, plans are still fluid. Neil offered the same in Norwich Ct. Meeting up with my buddy Tim you have met in Newburyport and dropping the trailer there. Will likely run up with you guys on Friday. New house still around Waltham ?
Looking forward to some seat time with Rooster Tail Ron in the slick stuff.

Just realized you posted pictures that weren't BMP's LOL.

I'm worried about. I don't want my flight to LA & 80º weather to be messed up….. but I seriously did want to go to Romp this year and photograph it.

I have some a pair of chains for anyone who wants to borrow them. Not sure on the size… they came with the Rover with 245/70-16 tires. I'll take some pics & measurements if anyone is interested. Just a few minutes of 295.

Doug,


You had definitely better let Bruce know that you are bringing Trey so he can let the local restaurants know to plan accordingly.

Thanks Daniel but my pickup is 24ft long and car trailer about the same. Parking that combo on the street in your town, not so fun.

Great to see you're coming Doug! That'd be ideal for Raub to fly in and meet you, then drive Shayne's new hoopdy back down to Florida
