Welcome to FTE! Wow! What a start!

We would love to see pictures of your truck and your trip, so we can live vicariously through you...

Wow Welcome to FTE! As Joe said, we would love to see pictures.
How long are you going to be in the US? Do you have a planned route?

You need to upload them to the internet somewhere. I use photobucket. Then get the link to the picture, click on the mountain scene icon and past the link in the box that pops up. That's all there is too it.

When you are in Missoula you will only be about 2 hours from where I live. Which way are you headed from there? What parts are you looking for, or have you found them already? Sounds like a fun trip.

Edit; just saw your pics, very cool truck!

Hello trumph (is that from Triumph as in motor cycle?) your truck looks like a patina legend, but, not knowing what it is like mechanically, you must be very brave to set off travelling around America in any second hand car you just bought, let alone in that old girl.

Good luck with your trip, sounds like an absolute blast.
