Two days in the car and we are back to Connecticut.

What a great event, I was honored to be a part of it.

Home Sunday afternoon. I stopped along the way and spent the weekend with an old friend I had not seen in 30 years. It was a great week or riding and socializing with the gang. Many thanks to the unorganizers.

well repairs were not completed on Monday. Shop is closed today. so will not be done until EOB Wednesday. I now KNOW EVERY STEP of Fontana village. I know where all the bodies are buried and the full name of every worker here :-) in fact the staff at Fontana has been great and it is not to bad.

Hoping for better luck tomorrow. There could be worse places to be stuck than Fontana Village Resort.

After sneaking out of Fontana Village on Friday ahead of the rain Friday morning, Joel and I made it back to Atlanta last evening around 5:30 after detours to VA and NC. Many thanks to Craig, Terri and Matt for setting this Unrally up. Also may thanks to those who worked behind the scenes. It was great to see old friends and make new ones, that is what the Un is all about!
Also a special thanks to Bernie and Bob's Boot Repair. Because of their after hours service I didn't have to ride with one boot and one sandal last week.

the saga continues, seems when the injector went bad, it shorted out one of the trucks computer chips. So new board is needed.

Andy Raye came to my rescue and drove back up to Fontana Village and picked me up. I am home now and back at the office.

Once the truck is running, I will drive back up, pick up the truck, head over to Fontana Village and then pick up the trailer and then finally have myself, truck and trailer back home

Randy, Sorry to hear that. I was considering offering a pickup and drive home, but I've been under the weather with 4 yellowjacket stings July 1-4. Glad to hear that Andy was able to come to your rescue. If you need a ride back to Fontana, let me know. Other than Pam's birthday on July 7, I have no commitments.

Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.
