MMW 2015
« on: November 15, 2014, 06:17:02 PM »
Time for a mini adventure. I am in the planning stage to drive there. Only just under 2800 miles one way taking a northern route. I can return by a slightly southern route and stop in Tulsa if there is anything going on there.

So need to plan on lots of maintenance checks and overhauls. Then make a spares and tool list.

My wife still does not understand WHY I am even considering doing this.

What's the date?   Wondering if I'll be around.   Today was my first day back in over a month!

MMW 2015 is June 29 & 30 and July 1 & 2 in Abotsford BC . Then Tulsa is about 2100 miles from there so 4 days of travel. Probably in Tulsa July 6th or 7th.

Take a more northern route going up. Atlanta, Nashville, St Louis, Kansas City, Sioux Falls then hang a left (west) Spokane, near Seattle then north to Abbotsford BC.

Slightly more central/southern route back home. Head southeast from Seattle to Boise, near Salt Lake City, around Denver, Tulsa, Little Rock, Memphis, Birmingham, Atlanta.

Total mileage for just that without side trips is 5727.

Sounds like fun I kick around the idea of a drive to MME with my car when its done finding the time would be hard for me. 

But if the car is done for MMW I'd be up for it only about 450 miles from me maybe we could meet up in Seattle I'll bet check heleker sp? he's in Seattle will be driving might end up with a group of minis for the last 250 miles or so.

On your way back a drive along the Oregon coast could be fun but then again there is some cool canyons in Utah that you'd miss without some back tracking keep us posted.

If you come thru KC, let me know...I have a fully equipped shop with a short rise lift in case you need to do any repairs or maintenance....

I would really like to go too, but haven't quite figured out how I can be gone that long.

When I read your post about your car I looked up your location. It's good to know of places along the way if trouble arises. Thanks

If you need help in the Oklahoma City area, let me know. And if you continue through the Tulsa area, Dan's there... if he isn't out jetting around the world hanging out with flight attendants. Haha

Willie B, when are you leaving for Abbotsford?

Remember to check in with me if you come thru KC, I have a shop at your disposal should you need anything. Two of the three routes Google recommends go right thru KC.....

My number is 913-648-6339

Will be heading out June 23. Going thru Tulsa on the way up so I drop in on Dan. My return route does go thru KC, probably July 7 or 8. I will for sure give you a call, even if just for a visit.

Yep, newer phones take phenomenal pics for what they are, and you can post them straight to the Web - Facebook especially makes it easy for everyone to follow your trip.

Depending on what time you hit town, I know a great place for lunch or dinner. I'm in Overland Park, a suburb on the southwest side of town....keep my number in your phone too. Since I'm retired I'm free to help if you run into trouble along the way, don't hesitate to call, OK?

Wish I was going with you!
