    Somebody gotta start it...

    Me-N-Hunny Girl-N-Jim made it to Hill City SD this evening.

    No mech difficulties....

    Had a nasty diagonal headwind all the way across ND...by NASTY, I mean like blew some of my stick on reflectors off the tire trailer. Got about 10 mpg alla way across ND...

    Turned south & guess what? ...15.5 mpg avg...

    This is towing the tire trailer with the 35's on the VX.


    TTY'all later, gotta go have too many drinks...

    Gremlins...

    The VX is still not 100%...
    Electrical gremlins are causing minor troubles. The key fobs don't work and the dome light keeps going on randomly (we had to pull the bulb to keep from going insane). St. Charles put new door switches in, but that did not fix it.

    Also, the fuse for the dash lights and tail lights keeps blowing... gotta have a shop (or the guys at the stoop) look into what is causing this.

    Other than that, the trip has been great. Halfway to St. Louis, we had a dual-trailer big rig flashing his lights at us so we pulled over to see what the problem was. Turned out to be a cousin of mine that couldn't believe the Nocturnal VX was blowing by him in the middle of the night on a run he has done daily for over two decades! Seeing Merlin was fun, and everyone at St. Charles Automotive was great. Even though all the issues with the VX were not resolved, they did a lot in one day.

    See y'all soon!
    The only thing we have to fear is fear itself... and zombies.

    Tom, Kenny, Bossman, and all others that can not be with us... we miss each and every one of you. Trust me... we will have one (or two) for you at the stoop. Big Swede, Gizmo, Cece & I, Lisa & Greg,, Kat, and who knows whom else are taking a scenic trip to the La Salle mountains ... should be fun. Pics will be posted...

    Yesterday the earlybird group took a little jaunt through the Dome Plateau trail. Nothimg too adventurous but a fun trip. Only damage came early on...to my lip! The wind blew my door shut as I was exiting the VX and the corner put a nice gash in just below my lip...ouch. Unfortunately, we couldn't find the turn off on the trail to get to Again and Again Hill so we stuck to the main trail. Now it is time to figure out what todays adventure will be.
