Maybe the thread should be moved to this category, but I'll just post a link to the 2014 Eagle Motel trip planning.

I wanted to start putting new posts in this thread since the Eagle Motel gathering is unofficially underway. 

I just got this picture from Eaglefreek.  That's his wagon, towing Prafeston's SX/4.  They are currently in Colby Kansas and reported they just saw Rmick in his SX/4 on the road!  More updates to follow, anybody that is in town can head out to the Rambler Ranch tomorrow (10/10) and look at all the great cars Terry has.

We made it to the ranch around 2. Couple other people already there and Terry has graciously let me use his shop to work on my car.

Us getting food in Limon. Wish I would have snapped a picture of rmick's car with ours but I only took video.


My car finally off the dolly!




We were both very relieved to have my car off of that dolly. We had some pretty sketchy tail wagging the dog moments. I was tensed up for probably 75% of the trip. Constantly checking the side mirror to check for any movement. We decided those double trailer trucks were causing most of the issues.

Probably set to friends only on Facebook. Let me fix that.

Edit: figured it out. I had posted the wrong links.

Hmmm...no PPE, not even work boots. Be extra careful, ok?

My last chat was with Doug on FB, on Wednesday the 8Th 2014, sent him a some photo's of my 1980 Two tone Brown 2 Dr Coop Eagle which I have not seen in 4 years, My wife and twin brother, took it from storage to inspection which it passed till 10/2016. I am the first owner of her, bought her in late 1979 from Adams American, Warren Ave, East Providence, RI for $8,297.99, with the AMC Body protection program of the time, it made to the island by ferry, which I took pictures of sent to Doug in Iowa, after Doug left FB, slept for a few hours, got behind the wheel with my wife Paula, crossed by Ferry to the mainland Rhode Island, on Thursday the 9Th of October 2014 at 11am est:, with laptop and my cables
we drove out of RI to CT to NY to NJ to Entering Pennsylvania, with one stop over, as only have been home from my Cancer treatment/Coma ordeal in Chicago, less then two weeks ago to take the trip 1086 miles Rt70 west, to Eagle Motel, 423 Manitou Ave, Manitou Springs, CO 80829, we are about to be on the move again in about one hour, though not Sanctioned by my doctors, I am feeling good still, wife still sleeping, The Eagle is Running Fine like a new cooper penny, has over 200 thousand miles on her Same everything in her since bought except oil, brakes and one clutch, she runs both on gasoline and CNG, has been easy to refill the CNG so far to NJ, as we go west now, we will see if how far we can keep going on CNG as far as filling stations, we do have a full 22 gallons of gasoline on hand, in factory tank, but so far have not used a single drop of gasoline, total cost of full thus far has been $14.85, that's for some 496 miles thus far, if all goes right I stay healthy and such, we should be there by Saturday October 11Th,2014 around 7.30am CO. time. Doug if you see or read this, can you post my car pic's in this section? See you all there soon I hope all goes well, as has been going so far! MSG for Doug, if you can PM me, Paula and I would like to visit you on return from CO. if it does not cause you or wife any problems? My total time behind wheel thus far in over a year is 11 hours.
