UPDATE from THE ROAD-
Spent a few days in Concho, AZ with my best buds, sawing up a bit of ponderosa pine, shooting the bull, and preparing the load for the run east.
Departing tomorrow morning for OKC at dawn, as the winds that have closed I-40 have been absolutely brutal, and |it terrifies me to run as heavy as I am through them.
Weather check says I should be fine through the whole route, as the front system seems to be moving through and I should be in the backside safe zone.
Don't know how my internet access will be for the rest of the trip, but rest assured that I will double check when I have the opportunity.
God Bless!
Dave

Good luck on that trip.
Do you have a pic of your load that you will have?

We like pics.  :)

have a pic of the load, and it's big and heavy. Figure I'm in at about 12-13 tons total, with everything that's on there.
Will be doing the final load check after breakfast, and rolling to OKC to link up with my friend Oren.
Raider |Bill, I'll be looking for your location probably tomorrow night, late.

You should get here just in time to see the leaves turn.

Well, gang, I made it!
Murphy's rules of combat were in full effect throughout the trip, which made for a very interesting run!
Left Tuesday around noon, heading to Amarillo. Rolled in there about 1AM, and passed out after me and wiener dog grubbed on cheeseburgers and Jim Beam (After being done for the day).
Wednesday, Rolled out for OKC, anticipated stopping near Ft. Wayne AR, but got a call from my best bud Davey, a trucker for CR England, who had been rerouted to Sacramento, and was approaching Knoxville when he called. I pushed it hard, and we were able to link up Thursday morning near Brownsville, TN, and set a spell.
Dave and I are best buds, 2 of a group of 3 of us. Spent a few extra days with #3 in our crew earlier in the week, and felt blessed that Dave would make a point of linking up with me on the road.
Spent that night somewhere just north of Bristol, VA, and made it to my folks this evening after the final brutal day on the road.
Raider Bill, I'll be looking you up soon, as I totally fell in love with that area driving through there.
It's where I'd love to live and raise kids. We'll talk soon.
Everyone else, I thank you so much for your help, guidance, wisdom, and support through my trying times.
I'm unloading over the weekend, and hope to get my blades sent out on Tuesday for sharpening, unless anyone knows who sharpens here in the area. Have about 30 blades that need to be done...
Good night!

Dave,

Just saw this thread.  Glad you made it O.K.  Beautiful country.  I spent 4 years on a job in Mehoopany, PA, about an hour down 267 from Binghamton.  Used to shop the farm supply store in Vestal on a regular basis for stuff we couldn't get locally.

As I recall,  first week of October, the leaves should be absolutely knock out gorgegous right now.  Post us some pix of the leaves if you get a chance !

What an adventure of a day!
When I finally got rolling this morning, I was able to link up with Jim (jdtuttle) over in Candor, and chat a spell while dropping blades off for sharpening at Mr. Earl's place.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The members of this forum are by far and large the finest people on the planet.
I'll go through fire to help any one of y'all if I can when you need me.
Mr. Jim, it was a huge pleasure to meet you today and chat a while.
Thank you so much for turning me on to Mr. Earl's sharpening services. I'm sure that we'll be seeing a lot of each other in the future!
Dave
PS - now, off to a REAL homemade s'ketti dinner at the neighbors! The "gravy" has been simmering all day long! WOOHOO! Fat & Happy I will be!
