The different colors designate different days traveled. I started at home and got back home today. I will have to check my GPS track log to find out the correct mileage. Natchez trace parkway was on [MY] way Home.

Those are pretty long days, Let us know your ave. speed, how long you were driving and the stats when you get a chance to get them from your GPS.

You're an inspiration to all of us that would like to do the same but may never do it

best GPS moving average 37.6 mph in Texas
My usual average is 35 mph
worst day average 33.2
longest day 412 miles that is too long for this time of year. Traveling in Mark Twain National Forest after dark is VERY challenging! The last 14 miles took an hour.

I missed seeing you at Chickasha until the wife and I were pulling out of the Best Western parking lot and driving out of town on highway 81.

You were between 2 Semi's as we passed you. Its good to see a T still going as good as yours.

Hope to meet you at Chickasha next year!

Dean -- That pulled pork looks yummy! Now I'm gonna' have to fire up the smoker. :-)

Dan the only thing I bought at Duncan was a Coleman stove. My backpack stove was not useable.
Duncan has little pre war, more of a flea market.

Mike the pulled pork was excellent The secret is in the sauce.

Bob not good pulling the trailer 14--20 the carb I am running now is at the low end.

What motor oil do you use?

Dean, how did you tear up a rod bearing in OK?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By David Walker on Wednesday, April 02, 2014 - 04:28 pm:

Dean, how did you cross the Mississippi River at Kentucky? I hear there's a ferry somewhere up there still in operation.

Hope to cross there some day.

Dean, I'll buy the second one, after Hal. You're like a modern-day AL Westgard. I'd love to hear about all your adventures.

Could have been worse. You could have gotten porked over...Oh wait. You did that too.

Dexter the rod was fine the Babbitt in the cap came loose just replaced the cap 50,000+ miles is darned good fore a rod as far as I am concerned. My first set was wore out at 37,000 miles.

David I found two ferrys on my way home Kentucky - Mo & Mo.- Illinois .

Jared don't hold your breath waiting fore me to do a book. With my spelling & grammar I shouldn't be typing hear.

No matter, Dean.

The knowledge that you have and could impart to us - if you wrote about more of your "incidents" - would be well received.

Kudos on your achievements!


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Adam Doleshal on Thursday, April 03, 2014 - 11:40 am:

Dean, if you could keep your max speed down closer to 30 MPH, your bearings would probably last forever and you wouldn't have to work on them every 37,000 to 50,000 miles... :-)

Dean, I would imagine those are re-babbitted rods of your own manufacture, not ones "purchased"?


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Dean Yoder on Thursday, April 03, 2014 - 01:36 pm:

Adam the firs set were purchased from a good dealer. dippers & crossexed.
The ones I am running now no dippers no x rebabbitted by me.

This morning I was in the dentist's chair, and while he worked on me he started telling me that his wife is into "vintage trailers". I immediately thought of this thread and Dean's rig. It turns out that "vintage" meant a completely reconditioned 1960's Airstream pulled by a modern vehicle.

I was disappointed. Just goes to show you how a word can mean different things to different people.

Dean, does your T have any accessory oiler in it? I guess I am another breath holder for that book Dean. Would love to hear your tales from the road. Every adventure is at the very least a valuable learning experience and of great entertainment value for us T nuts.

There is no better educator or entertainer than experience and you certainly have time in the saddle that most of us will never accumulate. Think co-author.....

Sample title ideas....

"Bouncing over America"

"Seat-spring Marks I Can't Show You"

"Oil in my nostrils, and hair, and clothes...."

Dean, you could sit down with Stan Howe and let him write down your thoughts, you could be Hermans cousin from Iowa.

Rick

Rick, what a great idea !


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Erich Bruckner, Vancouver, WA on Thursday, April 03, 2014 - 09:14 pm:

I was thinking that too. What a combo it would be.

Eric, I run the outside oiler that is cut into the hogs head 1/2 line to front of pan.
I have used others but feel this is the best.
