   We will probably take the bypass around Lansing on our way from Elkhart to Midland/Sanford area.  We will let you know a few days before.  Would love to meet ya'll, maybe get together for lunch and a visit?  Jack

I'd like to be there, got some big work to do to the coach and competing projects for my time.

I'll get there via 4 wheels if I can't get the 8 wheels up to speed.

happy coaching!

Jack,

Thanks a million for helping me today and showing me the proper way to install the windshields.

I think we were at Olympic time with about 1 1/2 hours from start of removal to the last piece of bead lock/finish.

I will post some pictures in another thread.

We always enjoy any time spent with Jack and Paula.

Be safe on the road.......

Jack,

If your route back south from Ohio passes near the Niagara Falls / Buffalo area, give us a shout. Plenty of parking, power and water for an overnight.

Replace rusty air tanks, don't trust them anymore,  pull all wheel ends for inspection and fresh axle seals, replace "mixing chamber" cast Y pipe in exhaust... And document it all for tutorial purposes....

And whatever else I find along the way...

happy coaching!

Hope all is going well with your trip. We so Enjoyed having you as our guests and look forwward to your return in the fall.

A quick update on Miss Jackie. Her kidneys, a new trick, almost shut down so they force fed her liquids with IV's for two days. When I was there yesterday they were taking her for an MRI and we won't know the results of that until today. She's in good spirits but her legs are weak. Looks like a couple more days before she can think about coming home.

Thank you all for the well wishes and thanks to Cody for the PM inquiry.

Sorry about the ordeal with Jackie....hope it will work out to get home. Add to my prayer list.


About Jack & Paula...they need this long trip away from home to visit relatives and friends.

Wish them well and safe trip to & Flo.
