Need help with transporting a part!

Hi Everyone! I need help to get a part from Lynn (Eubank on the forums) in Angel Fire, New Mexico to me in the Quad Cities... Milan, Illinois. He has no way to ship it from his location and size/weight is also an issue. If there is someone traveling from the Southwest to or thru the Midwest on Interstate 80 I could really use your help to get the part to me intact. I live close to where I-80 and I-74 junction thru the Quad Cities and there are rest areas and RV parks all around the area both in Iowa and Illinois if you are traveling through. There is also a Welcome Center in both Iowa and Illinois on I-80 each side of the Mississippi River. It is the AC shroud for my factory installed AC unit on my '67 Safari. It is used but clean and in good condition. If you have room and could bring it to me I would be very happy! Please contact me here or PM/E-mail me a phone number and I will call you to set up a pickup date with Lynn. He is located in the Monte Verde RV Park and Campground in Angel Fire, NM and will be removing it from his trailer in the next week or so. It will be ready to be picked up after that. I will buy a nice meal at a local restuarant to cover your trouble to do this if you can. Thanks to everyone for reading this and hopefully someone will be "Going My Way" Happy Trails, Ed

Yikes!!! One more post and I will hit the big 1000th. Being on the Forums since '04 I guess I only post when I am interested in the threads! Happy Trails, Ed

Ed,

Do you still want the rock guard? If not then I'll offer it to some other lucky forum member. I figured I'd check with you one more time before I moved on.

I only have over 200 posts, boy do I have a long way to go to hit the 1000 mark

Thanks, Mary

Maybe ...

Ed,
I am going out to Estancia(sp?) NM. next week to pick up a trailer and bring it back to St. Louis, Mo. I will have room in my pickup bed for an ac shroud. How about dinner and overnight camping fees? or camping in your driveway? Also I just noticed that Angle fire is in the Boonies almost half a state away from where I'll be + you are 100+ miles north of St.Louis.
Bob

Mapquest Says....

Bob, Looks like it's about 160 miles north of where you need to go then almost that far back down to I-40. I really hate to ask you to drive that far out of your way. Let's see if anyone else is going thru there and heading near here. I would meet you in St. louis or have you drop the shroud off at a forums members house in St. Louis rather than have you drive the 4 hours plus to get to the Quad Cities from near where you are taking the trailer. It would be too far north and (again) out of the way for you but thanks for the offer. I'll let you know if I get deaperate! Ed

Still looking for help to get the part from Eubank in NM to me in Il. If anyone sees this and may be going thru from SW to Midwest and can pick up the part let me hear from you soon. Thanks, Ed

If it helps, we live very close to US Route 64, stretching from Nags Head, NC all the way to Tec Nos Pos, AZ.

Can this happen...?

Lynn, Xbob2 is asking if there is any way to get the shroud down to Estancia, NM where he is headed. He will be leaving St. Louis area to there on Weds. or Thurs. to pick up a trailer for Lumatic. If this won't work then I will keep trying to find someone else heading this way. Ed

bite the bullet

Ed,
I would like to get your part to you ... I think I am your best shot. If someone can get the shroud to Marshall's place all the better but if not then maybe I need to drive...
