Help!!!! Need co-pilot Chicago-Georgia

I need a co-pilot for my trip to pick up Shell Shock. Lori (my wife) has been put on something like bed rest. I do not want to bring her on a long and possible stressful trip.

So if anyone near the Chicago metro area is interested in a trip to Georgia to pick up a trailer with me let me know.

If I have no one by noon on the 24th I will put off the pick up till I can make new arrangement.

Figures, I have the tires, hitch and brake controller, but no one to go with me. I do not want to do this on my own.

Tedd ~

It might help folks step up if you give an idea of your timing & schedule for the trip...

I know I wouldn't want to leave at noon on Christmas Eve, especially with the weather predicted over the next couple of days. Is that your plan?

Sorry Shari, my bad.

The plan is to leave around 7am on the 26th for Chattanooga.
27th leave Chattanooga to pick up trailer, and return to Chattanooge that night.
28th leave for Chicago, expecting to get back to Chigao area on or about the 30th.

I'm willing to pay the way of my woodbee co-pilot including room and board and food.

It is a done deal. I have a co-pilot and am in good hands. Thank you.

I will have to keep a log of this trip and share it with you.

Okay. I'll play. I bet your co-pilot is Santa, worn out by all the Christmas rush and ready to let someone else take up the main drive. On this trip, he can sit back and enjoy the ride and company, "till" he's ready to head back Up North by New Year's Eve. Happy trails! And we hope all is well with Lori. Best wishes for all in this adventure. Merry Christmas!

May as well let it be known that we are teaming up for the trip. Can't pass up an oppotunity for such an interesting excursion. Hopefully, Murphy will leave us alone - - haven't had too many recent encounters, and it seems like most such encounters have involved travel along either Interstate 80 or Interstate 90 - - my travels along Interstate 24 have always been pleasantly uneventful.

I could carry my Dell laptop along, but am afraid that it wouldn't do us much good either. I don't have either a wireless or cell modem, and my cell phone is now eleven and one-half years old (purchased it in July of 1993 after my first one was destroyed in the flood of 1993) so it probably wouldn't support a cell modem if I had one.
