Ok took TH out for a run. Went about 50 mi round trip,was on I 70,with all the trucks, I was very impressed,with the balance of the TH,full water tank n no gear,but it pulled great ! No wagging or anything. On the way back I could comfortably drive with one hand,"30+mph gusts today here" the truck liked 67-72 mph, saw EGT's around 850-900' trans temp around 180'. Plenty o power,but I could feel it is heavy.

Finished "mostly"cabs.

Found a home for gen, even made a fishing rod holder,"that will need Velcro,and a base plate.lots of tie down points added. Came out ok.
I put detergent in BnG tanks before test run today,and a little bleach in fresh tank. Will empty this wknd.

The progressive surge guard arrived today,so will put it in tomorrow!

Making progress !

Darlington can be a mess also if it rains prior to the races. Took us 4 hrs to get out of the parking lot and about an hr after that to get home. Total nightmare.
No trailer either.

If anyone is interested I have season camping on the infield back stretch dead center of the back stretch on the fence! I might not be able to make it to the September 20-21 Nationwide/ARCA races. If interested message me direct for more info.

I just looked at the race date June 27, with any luck I'll be on way home from yellowstone about then.
I'm still looking, DW used the rest of her va-ca time for this trip,so she will not be able to use any more until mid September.
Mote pass ? Boat across ?
