Quick Missoula meet

I'm going to meet Opiewan in Missoula at the truck stop Thursday evening to get that tailgate to him. I think he said the truck stop at the 96 mile marker which would be Reserve St.?? I think. 4B's restaurant is right there. Anybody else want in on this? I'll buy the coffee.

I have to get back that night, so it's a short turn around. Let me know.

I'm on my way out the door - work in Marion today. Then plan to leave for Missoula about 4:30 or 5. This is just a day trip - I have to be back here for Friday AM too.

We finally got our stories straight. We're meeting at Muralt's truck stop (93 & I-90) between 7 and 8 pm tonight. I'll be driving the 48 pickup if my road test today goes OK. I've been fiddling with the distributor and idle screws lately. I'll check this post just before I head south.

He called me, but the wife had called just a bit before and told me we were having Pizza for dinner and did I have it ordered yet? I had barely hung up when Tim called ready to go.... ..... ..... grrr....oh well..another time perhaps. Its lucky I didn't go...the wife was in a dither tonight, to get some things done. Amazing how they can come up with things when you want to do something on your own.

Marriage......

I'm back! Opiewan has the tailgate and we had a great, short visit. Sorry you guys couldn't make it work. Michael, at 9:40 I was starting back north.

I was a bit late - when he said between 7 & 8, he meant Central time. Also, I found there are TWO truck stops at that exit, but finally we connected.

At the first truck stop I woke some guy up in a rig with a "flatbed covered with a blue tarp" that had Iowa plates.......wasn't Opiewan. OOPS!

The 48 ran smooth and steady, down and back on a tank of gas. 250 miles on 14 gallons - not bad for a 53 yr old engine (51 Merc flatty).

hey guys i just got home from my trip. was great meeting mtflat. i got that tailgate sitting on my picnic table waiting for tommorow and this weekend so i can install it on my baby, the engine is down at the speed shop and i am hoping it is finally done so i can get ready to put it back in too. thanks again for coming down to meet me and for that tailgate. i still cant believe you were so nice lol. the 48 looked great and sounded awesome. i wish some of he other guys could have made it. i was going to come back thru billings and look up matt but i got diverted thru salt lake so i could not. thanks again !
