    mapquest.com says I live 257 miles from Caddo Mills,TX so that would be 514 round trip. At 10.50 MPG I should be able to make round trip for about 50 gal.
    So looks like somewhere around $150.00 should get it. Some things have come up that I don't have any control over, but still have my fingers crossed that we can be there.

    No, not the problem. 3300+ miles at 10 mpg, (pulling trailer), is 330 gallons, @ $3.00 a gallon, it's $990.00. That's the problem. $990.00 can buy a lot of other things, (like Helo Maxx 8's :D ) .

    (Plus, have not added in the $400 beer and chilidog budget)

    The RV-ing diesel fuel account is growing. The first eBay items drew disappointing results, but the behind the scenes contacts for additional parts was unbelievable. The Kawi guys and gals are buying up the crap I thought was going to end up in the scrap pile behind the shed. I've held back on the high ticket items and people are waiting impatiently for me to figure out prices and post up.

    Because of work I had to stop teardown Wednesday. Short week and spent the afternoon on the project and got done at dark. I can feeeeeeel the love.
