It Was All Going So Well, Until!
The road trip of all road trips was cruising along just fine until the big snow and freeze hit Kansas.
The only good way to look at this, is , at least the drive across the most boring state on the planet will be a little more interesting.
We were lucky enough to avoid the East Coast blast and ice rain, but the icy snow caused us to stop early right before Kansas City. -2 today but sunny and on the road. Now if M-fine could leave Bob Kays alone in the back seat, we might make it to Boulder tonight. Fingers crossed and on the road again!
Are we there yet? I’m cold and m- fine’s teeth chattering is almost as bad as the bacon smell.
Good lord! We haven’t even eaten breakfast and you two are at it. Trust me if I stop this car you little turds will freeze to death!
If they keep mis-behaving you can drop them at Leavenworth.
I was born and raised in St. Joseph, Mo. I know that weather well. That’s why I live in Florida. Lol. Safe travels!
Fellas, fellas. Cut it out!
Supposed to dip below zero in Chicagoland today as well.
The fishing boat is going duck hunting.
Bob keeps farting and it is too cold to open the windows!
Can you lower the heat ? M- fine smells like cooked bacon and Troy keeps sending him girlie pictures and he won’t let me see. Oh yeah, I think I saw barrel back sticking out of a barn back there. The nice lady told me to keep my mouth shut or else.
You went thru St. Louis and didn’t call Al Benton ?
When you get to Boulder see if Tulaghi’s is still there…It was a down under ( below street level) place that served lots of Coors Beer to college kids. Had a lot of fun there when I was single…If you go the other way you will be up near Grand Lake where Chris Smith’s daughter (Chrisann) and husband live.
I think Wilson should write a WoodyBoaters travel guide. I would buy one.
We spent a lot of time at C.U. when I was stationed at Lowry AFB in Denver. Girls were attractive and Coors was special since you couldn’t get it east of the Mississippi back in those days. Grand lake and Estes Park were great spots to visit. As for other spots…I just had the chance to take in a lot of boat shows and met a lot of great people.
That jet looked like a potential future barn find. Go back in 20 years and see if it’s still there. Or… You have the Yukon, just hook it up.
I just looked it up and Tulagi’s closed in 2003 after a tax raid and is now a sandwich shop.
Reading that on my phone made me car sick. Pull over! I think I’m going to puke!
Drat !…Tulagi’s didn’t consult me about Colorado tax laws, not that I would have been of much help..Besides it was back in the late ’50s when I went there and they going great guns back then…Maybe different owners then.
the guy towing the jon boat….hell man he is just
GOING BOATING….with the shape the highways were in….he had the right idea.
take great care my friends….
11 degrees on morning this week here in Va…..and 67 today…?
John in a.
Are we there yet?
Can we stop at Wendy’s? I am hungry and I want a Baconator and cheesey bacon fries.
Yeah the 6 inches of snow we got in Mass yesterday is already gone bye bye. 60 degrees today.
If this U-22 is still on the side of the road for sale “KEEP GOING”
That’s a factory hook in the bottom to keep the bow down at speed.
It looks better from the road.
Are you boys happy now?
No, sitting upside down is making me car sick. And it is hard to drink my soda like this
Mmmmmm Baconator! Make mine a double plus an order of bacon siracha fries and an XL iced tea. Unsweetened please, I am on a diet. Oh and can you get me 4-5 extra forks to jab into Bob’s ribs if he doesn’t stop looking at me?
It is so cold that when we stopped at Wendy’s, M-fine got his tongue stuck to the outside bacon sign. Now he can’t eat all that food
I’m sure Bob Kayes or Antique Boat Center could fix it up easily
Do you think Katz’s could have it show ready in time for Sunnyland?
It’s -6º F as well here in Steamboat Springs. (Predicted to be -10º F tonight!) Drive safe, and have a fantastic trip!
Jim has it right, “keep going”……heck….go boating…but not in that one….
keep on truckin…..let the boatress drive….SHE will have sense enough to pass up roadside money pit project boats….
John in Va.
You are starting to sound way too logical. I’m worried about you.
Um, high today in Minneapolis was -14. Sorry I didn’t capture the -22 reading this morning.
I’m surprised the dash doesn’t flash
“WTF, GET BACK INSIDE!”
wait! mfine needs that roadside boat……its is HOGGED….and you know what you get from hogs!!!!
Nah, too far gone to “bring home the bacon”,
John in Va.
Your concern is well placed….remember I have a fiberglassic now…WAY too practical,……I am hurting for projects, nothing seems to break???? What is with that?
I may be losing it…..Troy has always thought so….
John in Va.
In Kansas, the wind doesn’t blow, it sucks.
Just woke up to -14° looks like I’ll be right here till tomorrow. It’s warmer in the North Pole. Which really don’t matter cause I ain’t expecting anything from the guy in the red suit after being told not to return to two different obedience classes.
