    Headed from Cincinnati, Ohio to Charlotte, NC either Jan 7th or the 14th weekend, via Lexington KY, Knoxville, TN, Asheville NC. Not sure which weekend yet, but could haul either direction for fuel and a 5th of bourbon. PM if interested. Enclosed van, 48" height limit. Could pull an open trailer (UHaul type) if you pick up the rental.

    Anyone within a reasonable distance of Madison, WI heading towards Massachusetts in the next 30-60 days? Trying to put together a sale on my small toyhauler for a potential buyer out that way. Conventional shipping via a transport service is crazy expensive.

    I might be on my way to MD next week, but that still puts me close to 6 hours away, unfortunately. :/

    Taco, I might be heading out to NY soon to pick up a hellofacopter. Taking out an equipment trailer. How long is your toy hauler and could you pm me what it pays if all plans work out? I will find out more on the timeline tomorrow. I think we are just waiting for the weather to get better out east. Also what's the height?

    I'll be leaving NYC headed west along 80 headed to Helena MT. I'll be empty until Helena.

    Here's my route more or less. I was considering stopping off at Standing Rock to see it in person and hopefully not get shot by rubber bullets or hit with a fire hose.

    The Des Moines stopover is a maybe, I have a friend who moved there and started a farm. I have family in Detroit and Chicago I was also thinking of stopping off to see if I have time.

    [​IMG]

    Return trip will have a long stopover in the Twin Cities to visit a friend who may tag along headed back east. We'll stop by Aerostich en route back home so that trip may look something like this.

    [​IMG]

    I'll be using either a double trailer or possibly just a hitch carrier. The bike I'm picking up is a lightweight.

    Anybody happening to be heading from the Albuquerque, NM area to anywhere between Peoria, IL and Madison, Wi in the next 60 days? I'm trying to get a 690 Enduro up towards Chicago and would love to pay for some of your gas.

    MAY have an empty (non-enclosed) motorcycle trailer going from central Michigan to Kansas City about 4/1. (depends on the weather - if it's gonna be nice that first week of April, the wife would haul the trailer out there while visiting the kids, and I would ride the ST1300 out a few days later and trailer the bike back to Michigan). Could haul up to 3 dirt bikes, or 1 heavy bike out there. Again, depends on weather conditions during that first week of April.

    I will be leaving Southern Michigan, driving to the DFW area sometime between April 20th-May 10th, staying until mid-late May. From DFW, I'll be staying near West Monroe, LA for a few days before heading North back to Michigan. If anyone needs anything hauled/picked up along or adjacent to that route, I'd be glad to help.

    They golf at the course where I stay when I visit down there, they are very small, skinny, tiny guys. Video makes them look bigger than they are, apparently!

    Would it be possible for you to get the 690 somewhere DFW? I'm tentatively traveling to the area around the end of the month and will be coming back to Michigan early May, if everything goes to plan!

    I could probably do that. What are the details?
