you're welcome,skalie. I'm not entirely sure about the Vegas pissup. From the looks of the Vegas thread it appears it will be well after Oregon. Unless the people organizing it have changed the date to accommodate those from other Countries.
Do I have to read the whole thread? I need a synopsis. I thought Vegas would be in July and we'd have ours in August. It would work out wonderfully if it were a week later, so the Ozzies, Kiwis, and other fruits could attend. Who is planning Vegas? We should coordinate.
.......... btw, if I have a good working like winter I'd be interested in picking up an old timer big fuck off Mercedes or something in Vegas and driving up to Oregon and then thinking of a way to get the thing back to Holland.

we deleted the group, since it had been brought here to the main forum. that way it would all be in one place, and more people could participate int he discussion.
All the info we had so far is in here, though.

Any non-drinking drivers onboard?
Sure, I'll do it. You'll be amusing drunken company.

Ah, hell, skalie, Vegas is only two days drive from Dallas. Fly into Dallas, I'll pick your drunken ass up at the airport, we can drive to Vegas.
Vegas to Portland is just one days drive - I've done it several times.
Since Muffy is gonna hook up with 'crika and likely go to northern Idaho between Vegas and the Oregon Coast, I could use a co-driver. Last time I drove to Oregon, by myself, was 3 days. Shreveport to Colorado Springs, then CS to Salt Lake City, then SLC to just south of Portland.
Get the car serviced, make sure the rubber is good and balanced, and go. Gets about 30 mpg at hiway speeds, So from here to Oregon is about $200 worth of gasoline.
