8 weeks to go

by Russell on January 25, 2016

Been many months of saving and planning but I’m finally almost ready to revisit USA.

ratrod 1024Heading off for a month in southern Oregon come this Easter weekend, the primary mission being to get my Buick Wildcat out of storage and finally ship it home to New Zealand after 3 1/2 years in storage. Also hoping to attend the Portland Swapmeet April 1-3, looking for those ever elusive special bits. And, of course, catch up with all the friends I made when I was last in Grants Pass/Medford.

When I booked my airfare and accommodation I didn’t realise I was leaving on Easter Weekend and therefore missed the Pleasanton Goodguys show which normally takes place that weekend but was moved a week earlier because of Easter. Bummer. I did look at moving my bookings but nothing, and I MEAN nothing, worked. Car rental way more expensive, airfares more expensive, my lodgings in Ruch, Medford unavailable a week early. It was meant to be it seems. Or is that meant NOT to be.  🙂

It’s gonna be a blast regardless. Old cars, old friends, and a few choice eating places I want to hit one more time. See you all soon.
