      We completed 2,000 miles the last three days, and only 540 more to get to BG in time for dinner tomorrow. We live in such a beautiful country!!!

            I'll be headed north early this morning so I can get some of the 500 miles done in my non A/C car while it is cooler. Should be at the NCM in the early afternoon.

                  We never go over the Rockies in April in our Corvettes. Hit snow again this trip too (like all the last three years), so we made this trip as usual in our WRX. The Z06 comes into play later this spring, all summer, and of course for the August National Corvette Caravan, then more.

                    I got about 65 miles from home in my 66 when I suffered a mechanical issue. Got it off the interstate and the left rear wheel was sitting at an angle and there was smoke and grease on the inside of the tire. Called a friend and he rounded up his trailer and took me and my car to my mechanic who thinks it is probably a wheel bearing.

                    Got home and put everything in the C5 and got back on the road. My 8 hour trip turned into 16 hours but I made it and am ready for some fun times at the NCM.

                    I'll be in the other yellow one in this picture as the 66 gets repaired.

                        Brad, what a tough day for you. You sure went the extra mile to get here; so glad you made it. What a great friend you have to come and rescue you and your car!

                        I was describing your car’s situation to two folks here who are are experienced mechanics and both mentioned wheel bearing failure as a good possibility. Hope your mechanic is able to get your ‘66 back together quickly and easily.

                        See you later this morning with your second yellow beauty! I am very partial to the different yellow on your 2004.

                            Talked to my mechanic yesterday and it was the wheel bearing as he suspected. He will be replacing both rear wheel bearings and some suspension bushings that are showing some dry rot. It will be back on the road in time for a 250 mile road trip to a Corvette show in Birmingham, AL.

                              Glad your getting it fixed and back on the road. Nice to have met you at the Bash.
