    Default Louisiana to Salton Sea, CA - Back - Xmas 2018

    Will be departing around Christmas headed west from Louisiana all the way to Salton Sea, CA and then returning. I will be relocating a members camper for them and then returning it 2 weeks later.
    l
    So with that said if anyone along the I-10 route is interested in tires or parts i may have I can for sure bring them along for some fuel $$. I will either be dragging a 1101 or 1061 behind the 927. So plenty of room to move some stuff. 1600s,1400s,395s, or any other kinda tires you may need.

    If anyone out that way needs any of those long ramps that NDT has for their lowboys let me know as well. Those are a costly to ship item thru LTL but we can make it happen. as I will be passing near by there.

    This is tentative for around Xmas and returning after new years.

    I have plenty of 9.00 and 11.00 NDTs. Member Profo has some as well over in New Iberia. I will be leaving out of his place.

    Bump. Planning on leaving out of LA on the evening of the 22nd. Headed across i10 to Phoenix. Then up to Vegas to silverstate55s place. Should be in salton seat and the palm springs area on the 27th.

    Long drive but at least the camper has cruise control. Shower, bed, and TV!

    Gee, I would have thought it would be crystal clear and smell like unicorn crap by now with all the environmentalists out there. I see nothing has changed since I was last there in '79.

    Yes, that's an image of my skull.

    It has changed....

    It has gotten much WORSE.

    I lived in CA in the early to mid 90's.

    I'm currently in CA for a 3mo assignment. I'm appalled at the shear amount of litter everywhere. Much worse than last time I was here (Monterey county) and much worse than any of the recent assignments ( Flagstaff AZ, Valdosta GA, Houston TX, Omaha NE, St Louis MO, ).

    The amount of litter here is comparable to what you saw in rural eastern KY in the early 80's. (Rural eastern KY has since been cleaned up. Last time I was there it was not bad at all)

    Or it has decomposed.

    LMAO


    You've seen the road frontage I clean. Found everything but a fetus or human body so far. Pee bottles, diapers (full), underwear (full), **** DVD, car parts out the wazoo, bank records, deer, bunnies, possums, racoons and trash.
