It's happening again!

Well as some of you may know Janey, the now famous 110 is making its way back East, Ron brown is buying it from Jim C. Ron is a bit busy, so he graciously asked myself to bring her back east! At first I didn't have a copilot, but my father has stepped up to the task, hes spent some time under my 90 and is a little familiar with Janey.

As of now the plan is to fly out and start the trip back on Sunday the 23. I plan on stopping at the Grand Canyon for a day or so, then hit the National Rally in Moab for a few days, and the fallowing Sunday we'll be heading East! We should have a bit more time, so whenever I have internet access I'll try and upload some photo's of the progress!

Hey Mike, good to hear you'll be at the Rally. See you there.

Its true - turns out I'm going overseas again and I'm not going to take a 25 year old 110 with me! After relaxing for a year in sunny CA, Janie is going back East.

When are you planning to arrive at the airport Mike? I still havent put the alternator back in since I had it tested. Also, this time, you'll have a roof rack. A gentleman bought the SD rack from my 90, so I'm going to strap it to the roof and he'll get it from you when you get to NH.

Sweet!

What kind of phone do you have Mike? Does it support GPS? It would be great to setup a "Where is Mike/Janey" site for the trip.

Randy it will be great meeting up with the OK group again! I contacted Alan and we should be set for camping with you guys!

Jim I believe I am arriving Saturday the 23rd at 4pm, let me email you that info! A roof rack? Cool, we can stow the doors up there!

You know Charles I have been trying to figure that out. I have the Samsung A930 and it has the GPS location. I have it enabled, but I have not found a way that I can go online and look at my phone's location. If there was a way that one could track where my phone is it would be cool to be able to put up a "where is Mike or Janey on a map"!!!
