May the road rise up to meet you, and may you leave no wet spots behind

Good luck and be safe.

No more wet spots! I am now back to plan A. I have 12 days to kill and I have no clue where I am going to be!
I am going to spend a little time tonight planning a little.
So many places so little time!

They did good by me. They were the place the factory recomended for the repair. It is not a glamourous place. They do have a lot of work though. I would visit them and oter local dealer and decide for yourself.

It's nice to a Plan B, mine was a secret escape to Mexico City to live on tortilla soup. It sounds like a riduclous plan, that's me.

Leaving my first WBCCI ralley, I was turning left, and was NAILED on the frint wheel/bumper of my 2002 Burb/8.1/HD/LT/4x4. Argghh, the kid had no insurance. Towed by I10 pirate to an Exit 31 in Miss. to a park, I found a great shop the next day that replaced the broken tie rod, aligned the front end. All on the same day and it drives straighter then ever. Well, now when I get to NM and park, I can worry about the body crush.

An idea for a sticky thread may be good places along the road for repairs.

Here is my first experience:

Bradely Thompson's Automotive
7378 Beatline Rd
Long Beach-MS 39560
(228) 865-9971

Fast and fair prices, nice shop, and he's a Harley fan and a fifth wheeler guy.

Michael, that's an interesting idea. My experience with threads is that the response won't saturate the country and the results will be difficult to present in a logical manner. Car Talk already does this on a website -- Car Talk Mechanics Files. Check it out and add your input. You get to give reasons why you liked their service, etc. Users of the site get easy search based on zip code.

Hi Bob, I see what you mean on the difficulty of organizing teh data in a logical manner. It could end up being a mass of useless info strewn across multiple threads. After looking at Car Talk, much of the info is way out of date an incomplete.

One possible format would to ask the garage/mechanic/dealer fill out a form (gawd I hate forms) with the intent of them knowing they were being critiqued and providing information for the world's most important web site . Then we could post the result by State.

This is probably a good idea, but maybe not good enough to implement. Michelle would have an idea if it would have been usefull, for me it might have been also. It would have been difficult with my 25' Safari with it's butt sticking out into the road to jump on the internet and look for a place to tow it to. Though I did have time, a VzN Aircard, and I would have saved myself 100 bucks.

Maybe not really practical for this forum, does anyone else have an opinion pro or con?
