Its almost 7:30 AM...They are about a half hour outside of Billings Montana. Will be stopping for coffee and breakfast them..found the problem with Andrews car ( besides it being a Ford Escort) was a loose plug wire. Had a few close call with deer but no casualties..was told that Rob doesnt want to show up in a wrecked car:grin: :burnout:

No great loss if an Escourt gets crumpled:grin: :grin: :grin:

Rob and I split at the first I-90 rest area in Wyoming...where is he now? (I'm in Denver, and the Escort seems to be doing much better at slightly lower altitude)

I saw Andrew on Thursday and he crashed here at Otis st Ranch for the night. Havent heard from him since though and he left 3 computer+cell phone cables behind. And a set of Seats for one of his project cars but I assume that was because of space constraints.

Andrew and Laura showed up this morning and Rob was about an hour later. We had a very nice afternoon with all of them. Rob left about 1:00 and Andrew and Laura just headed out for Des Moines. God speed to all, Tim
