If you have issues let me know. I have quite a few members numbers along your route. Russ Knight is in Perry, FL, Ryan Aruba and CrapGame are in the Pensacola area. CSM Davis is in Hattiesburg. Dock Rocker is in Jackson, MS... There is noone from there to Memphis. Ive got a few military truck guys in the central AR area across 63.

Be mindful of the signs around Mobile on how to get onto 98. whoever laid that out was either drunk. Or on a crippled horse. Alternative route with better roads and not so many hills is up HWY 45 all the way to Tupelo MS at I22/78 and then on to memphis

Ok guys I made it here finally this afternoon and started cleaning and unloading definitely miscalculated fuel mileage but we made it by the skin of our teeth. Betty did an excellent job getting us here will get pics and videos up ASAP. Thanks for all the help and advice.

Dang, sorry I missed this thread. I would have offered any assistance along I530 up to about Conway or so. I drive 530 to work in Redfield. Btw, welcome to Arkansas! There are a few of us MV folks to hang out with. You missed the convoy but they do have the Petit Jean Rally in September.

Ok guys finally able to get on and post some updates I got the power pole set and the power on. I had my turbo flange gasket go bad and had to change it. In the process I shored out my starter ordered a gear reduction one yesterday. Here's some pics. I hauled 2 loads of scrap off the property with the deuce and the M105 trailer and used the new winch to pull out a fairly complete Cub Cadet 104 garden tractor out out the woods covered in vines. My son and I got the engine to run will need work looks like it's been sitting there for 5 or 10 years.
