Thanks for the offer, you might make the same one to Doug and maybe give him a ride down to his forlorn baby!
It looks like right now the plan is to find someone in the El Paso area that can go to the storage lot and get an oil sample and then take it in to be tested for glycol and unwanted metals. If glycol is present, I'll drain the oil and coolant and replace with water and fresh clean oil. If glycol isn't present, I'll get it ready to travel and get the heck out of El Paso as quick as possible.
If that turns out good, I'll be looking for a ride from here, (Franklin, TX) to there, El Paso) along with a few tools and some parts to either put the fan back on, if the fan torus is still functional, or build a misting system for the radiator using the fresh water tank.
Then, I will climb into the old girl and baby her 700 miles back to my place, stopping quite a few times to refill the water tank and to camp for 3 or 4 days if needed.... and it'll definitely be needed, I don't plan on breaking any speed records and I figure I'll be greasy, hot, tired, grumpy and thirsty before the end of each day.
So, what we are talking about is about a week of travel and a some extra cash for parts, camping and of course, ice cold adult beverages!
I also want to take this chance to thank everyone for their input on this minor problem. It kind of renews my faith in humanity, which has been sadly lacking for quite awhile.
If anyone wants to donate to the fund, I guess the easiest way would be to donate through paypal at GHTrucking ^ msn.com (remove the spaces and the ^) or send it directly to Doug at his paypal account, as he'll also be needing to travel back to my place to pick it up after I get it up and running and replace some of the funky design by Disney horrors that have been inflicted on the poor beastie.
You could also send other donations to my wife,
C/O RV Relay Station
Franklin, TX 77856
We'll keep a close watch and post what expenditures went where and turn the rest over to Doug to help him get back down to pick up his baby.
I have some pictures that Doug sent me, I'll resize them and get them posted here today.
