Good Morning, 56* this am, but supposed to rain later so temps aren't going anywhere today, Rail, up here in the Great Northeast you never know what the day will bring, lately we have had temp swings of 60* or more in a day . The weather people are saying that we are staying in the 50* or more range for the next week so that's a good sign. Maybe we can meet up in April if you get close. Well gotta go before the rain.

Rail,
Just for your info, I75 North of Knoxville has been closed for a rock slide, I am not sure if it is opened or not, they have a detour of about 35 miles. Not sure if you were planning on going that way or not, just letting you know.
Terry,
Sounds like a bust and productive day planned.
Frank

Keep plugging away on the outside, looks like the end is near,

Rail
I was goin' to chime in with directions too but realized you don't really need any routing help after so many years OTR. ! Soooo I'll just say you'll need all your fingers working properly if you go through NYC ! Skuh kuh kuh kuh

Everybody doin' the "Doctor Shuffle" git-er done or Dr Popeye might have to take over.

Now , everybody enjoying warm temps ,,,,,remember I asked you to exhale in my general direction ?? PLEASE inhale deeply and try again ! It was almost working there for a while but below freezing is about to return

Frank, Might not finish the wiring today, just too windy to be comfortable outside to do soldering and putting the harness together tomorrow sounds better. But almost ready to install the left side compartment, built in the shop now will slide it in and weld it up. Popeye, yup we're pluggin, did you get any of the warm weather we've been getting? supposed to be nice here next week,(temps) although it might rain, then turn cold again .

Terry,
I know what you mean with the wind, it is hard to get a good solder with the wind blowing. It also makes you mighty uncomfortable. Charles and Beverly stopped by today and Rita and I filled their heads with fulltiming stuff and some things to look for when shopping for a rig. Probably put them on severe overload, but we tried real hard not to, lol. They are a very nice couple.
Frank

Good Evening, Frank, wind never did let up today, tomorrow promises to be better. Glad you got a chance to meet up with Charles and Beverly, the info that can be passed on by someone such as yourself that has been out there and living the lifestyle is invaluable. Overload is inevitable, (but manageable ) I wish them all the luck. Have a Great night All.

Terry, temp's are crazy up there for sure, and you are getting more done than most!
Frank, glad you got to meet Charles and Bev! The information will soak in, but it may take awhile! The road conditions are something I will deal with at the time! But, yes I had heard about the closure! We are just juggling all the dates so everything will work, I have visa renew thing here, another trip that is a free, comp'd, all expense paid, one from one of the drug co.'s that we have to work around! but it is looking like the last of the first week in April, give or take a week? We will see?
Popeye, I have always avoided NYC, but still been there a few times!
Well, time to go, shopping day! Rail!

Terry,
Glad to here that you got some things done. It is always nice to have a hand from someone that you trust.
Rail, I just wanted to let you know, so you have a heads up. Things could change before mid April, but this is going to be a long term thing.
Frank

Good Morning, Frank, Yup, Andy (#2 son) used to be a tech for me, and manage my auto shop while I ran the bike shop, we work well together. Supposed to be 50's again today so should be able to button up the tail.
