Thanks Zak I hear Banjo music myself. I got it loaded just right followed like it was on rails. I even asked the State Trooper that was chasing me how it looked and he said didn't even wobble when I pulled over after a brief chase.

Glad I checked all the straps at every fill up out of 6 straps only 2 were left in tact at the 800 mile mark.

now I get to Roth Sugar Bush in the morning for more overloading.

I'd "wish you Godspeed" on your trip Haynes....but I think you've got the speed part covered already. So, "safe travels" instead!

Doc Haynes always thought that saying was "good speed and safe travels"

Safe travels. Just put on 1337.8 miles in 24hrs by myself from yesterday to Today. Making quick stop for gas/oil check and go another 300. Staying with traffic @70-72 mph. Took the old 02' Dodge Dakota with 164k on truck down to Florida for permenant retirement.

Sugaring season down here is TOAST as I see red maples from Georgia on south budded out to leaf out here in Fla. Oh well maybe another season. Lol

In the 80's today so I'd say it's official over.
