No Easy Rider!

Bob, Let's see if Lynn has any thing to say on a way to get it to Marshalls' place or closer to where you will be going. I was looking at maps and see no easy way for you to use US-64 as he suggested to get anywhere back to I-40. This may be undoable. We'll see! Thanks, Ed

Unfortunately, we can't leave the park unattended, so I can't take it down to Marshall's place yet. (This is one downside of running a lodging business that we didnt' foresee.) If this were October, it would be a different story.

Thanks Lynn, It was worth asking. Maybe we will yet find somebody that can pick up the part from you and bring it back this way. Ed

Let's do this!

Looks like Lynn's work situation is such that its not possible for 1 person stay to mind the store while the other delivers the part. According to Map Quest it is a 3.5 hr. drive between Angle Fire and Estancia one way.
It also looks like there isn't anyone to move the part so here is what I have come up with ...
My plan was to drive 17 hrs from St. Louis to Estancia, close the deal hook up and go to the nearest truck/rest stop and sleep.
Instead, I could drive to Angle Fire which is about the same distance. If Lynn could give me a place to sleep and wash up, 5-8 pm. on the 26th to 8-10 am.the 27th, I could rest up from my long drive, sleep in, load up the shroud, have short drive down to Estancia arriving noon or early afternoon, close the deal, put on tires, hook up and go on the first half of the journey home. The operative word here is GIVE.
Does this sound like a good plan to anyone?
Bob

Plan

Well, from what I just read in my PMs' I guess my only quesstion is have you two decided what the plan will be and when? I really want to thank you Bob for being willing to go out of your way to pick up the shroud. Lynn if you can accommodate Bob for a place to sleep I will send you a $100.00 money order for the shroud. Is that acceptable? Let me know if this is doable guys! Thanks so much, Ed

Upping the ante to a hundred is really an issue or necessary. We're trying to work out timing issues involving more folks than just Bob and me!
