Mike,

Let me know if you want that gift certificate for service at Land Rover Denver East. It expires on the 29th of December. I won't be using it, though I don't know what they could do for a 110 there other than rudimentary stuff.

Abe

I second Rod's idea, as long as the car charger works and you can spare the minutes!

This trip is EPIC! (good luck fellas)

Rob, due to running behind, and we are planning on taking about half a trucks worth of parts with us we won't be stopping at cityside garage to pick up the extra trannies and t-cases, sorry.
This is bad Karma. You should bring him the parts. He could meet you in Moab I bet.

If its not too late, and you guys have room, my offer to shuttle trannies & t-cases from Denver to New Mexico still stands. (I'm headed to southern colorado over the weekend anyway)

Mike is about 30minutes outside of buffalo. He called 90minutes ago about 2 hours out. Ham and red beans and rice are waiting for him (as well as the radiator, doors! etc.).

Yup, just talked to Mike.

They are outside of Denver. Heading to Yousef's to change the radiator due to some leakage. No problems so far other than almost not getting onto the NYS thruway (toll collector balked at no doors), and taking on some 89 Ethanol gas which the V8 apparently did not like.

Speedo says they are doing 85, but they think it's more like 65.

That's all. I now know what it sounds like when I answer the cell phone in the D. Mike was shouting into the phone.
