TR6 Post Number 4

No man can leave for a four day road trip to pick up a car without paying a price. My price is attending two weddings on the same weekend. One Saturday, one Sunday. Right now I’m taking a well deserved break and watching CBS Sunday Morning before I have to go get ready for wedding #2.

On the TR6 front, my close friend Bryan and I are leaving Wednesday morning for Kansas City to pick up the ’74. I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The TR6 is going to Red Deer, Alberta, 125 KM north of Calgary, 520 KM north of the US border, 658 KM north of Great Falls, Montana and ultimately 2757 KM north of Kansas City, Missouri.

I am calling this trip the Wal-Mart tour as we are going to camp in Wal-Mart parking lots. Well that the plan... I might get feedback from Bryan but my goal is to do this to keep the cost down. We’re taking my father’s 2002 Dodge 2500 diesel Quad cab hitched to a bobcat trailer. A little more truck then we need, a little more trailer then we need but makes me feel a little more secure about the trip. It also seems appropriate that the truck that dad logged over 200,0000km in takes us there.
More on this later...
