RURR needed: truck from CO to VA

Need to get a rig from boulder to DC. It's tall enough to give the shippers headaches. Anyone by some miracle heading this way with an empty trailer? No time to drive it myself.
Thanks

That's what I thought, too (except I'd call it cvc's) but I don't remember the fenders being that trimmed (maybe they were though) otherwise it's a perfect match. Probably is. Loved that one. Still can't believe no one bought it when Chris had it listed at $18k.

It will be for sale in Oct after sitting in Tony's driveway all summer. He's got an extremely well established pattern going. Known the guy for close to ten years...

Its a spin on the civil war Under Ground Rail Road that moved slaves from the South up to the emancipated North. Stands for Rover Underground Rail Road. Its how we help each other out moving parts around the country for free or for some gas money. It facilitates transactions that would be cost prohibitive to ship otherwise.

Hope springs eternal though Doug...1st a HH, then next you know-perhaps you and I will be riding with him on some point so his shit can get broken on a trail.
My solemn vow is I will do my part to get him out of the beltway, in the vehicle (under its own power), with the dif locked.

Yes, Doug, this has been his track record, but all he needs is an Arles Blue support group. I'll find Tyler and we'll hold some come-to-jesus sessions, ala a snake-handling church from Crewe.

Let the record show that when I was on the hunt for my NAS, I desperately wanted an Arles ST. However, not finding something I was willing to bash up I did put an offer in on a '95 Arles SW. Lost the deal, and the white one came up....too good to pass.

But I've secretly yearned for an Arles still...so I will not allow him to part with it! We are going to have a reverse-Rover-intervention (unlike most of us that hoard/collect too many of them, we will now force Tony to retain ownership!).
