    Well folks, greetings from Indianapolis, IN. I was in Chicago yesterday checking on a little toy hauler. I pick it up Monday or Tuesday. Indy was on my list of stops because I wanted to pick up some shop equipment from Greg Smith Equipment. I heard that Friar may be in need of some equipment as well. Ace bailed on the lift but don't know if Friar is still in the market. Well, I'm here and just passing time on a Sunday, finishing up my final expense voucher and sending it to Winchester,VA.

    These Kinkos, are a one stop shop for business travelers on the road. I was able to complete my business and check into ADV. Not sure where I'll be tonight so Friar, if your out there, post your instructions or PM me. I'd be happy to pick up whatever it is that you need.

    Mike/Deb, you guys are looking great. Thanks for the note, thanks to all the great responses from everyone. Oh yeah, Griz, I said ND but meant SBGD "South-by-God-Dakota":rofl I should be in your area in the next few days. ETA Wednesday or Thursday. Talk about a great road trip. I've really been enjoying myself so far.....trip has just started.

    Tom, no posts please, my dog looks great:huh .....hope he recognizes me.

    Thanks for the posts guys......from the road,

    Katoomer

    Hey Friar, I'm at Greg Smith's now.....it's 0845 here, 0545 AK time. If you want that lift, better call now. I'm completing my business here and loading the trailer. By the time we finish, I hope you will have called. The early Gruver gets the toy's bro!

    Calling Friar Mike! Talk to me....

    Yep, I can see the pics now! Yippie!:clap .....the lift I picked up for Friar is really nice! Very high quality, black powder coated too.

    Back in Chicago now.....working on transloading the shop equipment to the other trailer. Working the deal right now. All in all GS Equipment was a good deal. It's the shipping that kills you going to Alaska.

    Friar, all I ask is that you check me out on the tire changer. There are a lot of gee wizzy knobs and handles......something the Katoom could loose a clutch finger on.:D

    Anyway, I'm heading north after this.....gonna try and hook up with Boxergirlle in Milwaulkee. Not having a cell phone really sucks. Boxergirlle, if your out there, I'm headed your way. I'll give a shout when I'm near M-town.

    Tom, go back to sleep......:rofl

    I can say with confidence that 'Toomer is in Madison, WI making his way west and north. He is well and enjoying himself immensely.

    Why does that not surprise me ......
    I mean the "enjoying immensely" part.

    Thanks for taking care of Katoomer, BGirl.
    Just make sure that you point him west towards Central Command once you tire of him. Can't wait to slap him around once he gets home. Fite
