Late Fall Trip in the Southwest
« on: October 17, 2013, 05:57:06 AM »
Hi all,

Headed out on Monday for the first trip in the "new" old coach. Headed form western Colorado through Utah to Nevada for the NHRA race in Las Vegas then week boondocking in the SOCal desert and visiting Family and then Pomona for the NHRA season finale. Then home via original Rt 66 and up through Monument Valley. Home by mid November.

Here's hoping for a trouble free trip.

Sounds like fun! Which one is the "new old coach"? The 5A, or the Crown?

The 5A is the new old coach.  The Crown has been coast to coast 30+ times and is well proven  :-)

Sure wish I could...Darn it.  I have to be headed to Denver on the 15th to work a couple of games at DU.  I'd rather be hangin' out with you folks by the Big Lake.  :-)
