  1. Looking forward to this Chad. Submitted the dates for time off last week. We will be there towards the end of the week for sure. Now just need the girls school schedule to cooperate. Thanks for keeping this going.
  2. Your B&W hitch will have a hole in the center towards the front of the hitch. This is to allow you to open the lever and drop the pin in it. This allows the jaws to release as the pin comes away from the front of the jaws. My B&W was the smoothest hitching and unhitch that I have ever had once I figured it out.
  3. Isn’t that the truth about SEATTLE? Go there almost every day
  4. Those look great. Nice job. Our first trick did not have windows. Our KW does and the little girls like it much more. Of course now that they are growing and into their mobile devices the windows don’t seem to get used as much when we travel.
  5. Dave I put Bostrom in my Kenworth. The shop in Tulalip was having a good sale but did not have a ton in stock. He sent me to the International dealer just up the road in Mount Vernon. They had a good selection on the floor. We sat in all of them. Glad we did cause what I thought I wanted we did not like. They had all of them on bases with air to try. That was a couple years ago but might be worth a trip as it’s not far from you.

    Hope all turns out well Glenn
  7. I will post photos after I load utv.
  8. It getting close to rainy season here in western Washington. I have some projects going on in the shop so need the space. Parking is prime real at my house so I decided to dual utilize some space with the truck. Here is where my utv will reside for the winter months when not in use. Click For Full-Size Image.

  9. Pulled into Spokane last night at North Spokane RV Park and were neighbors with Dave Scott, his lovely bride and his big red Volvo. It was nice for the old blue KW to have some company.

    Polishing Tanks?

    Polishing Tanks?

    My tanks are getting a little oxidized and last trip I lost an ac line to sleeper and ran Freon all over passenger side tank. I tried to wash off but no luck. Ended up sanding tank which worked very good. So good that I will sand the other one as well and clean up all the oxidation. I need to go back and polish now. My question is which size polishing wheel works the best. I can get 8” or 10”. I think 8” will work a little better to get right up and under sleeper for tops of tanks. I think 10” will work better over all for tank and wheel finish. Really I don’t know what I think so your thoughts would be appreciated
  12. I have used Lucas fuel additive in the HDT for quite a few years. Last year while fueling a really nice old Pete pulled up next to me and of course we started while our tanks filled and our wallets emptied. We both had Cat motors. He saw me putting in the additive and mentioned Howe’s fuel treatment. He swore it made his old Cat run better. Since I was out of the other I grabbed some Howe’s for the next trip. Truck does seem to run quieter. If your truck is old like mine they were before low sulfur diesel and can use some sort of lubrication no matter what it is. I have used amsoil diesel plus cetain in the lgt for years. I guess that was a long winded way of saying I use stuff and they all seem to provide some benefit
  13. I have no affiliation with this truck. Just came across it this weekend. I know the Maxforce engine had its issues but for this price and these miles it might be worth a look for someone. https://seattle.craigslist.org/tac/hvo/d/salem-2014-international-prosrar-semi/6948401231.html
  14. Chad I would love to live vicariously through y’all as well if you would include me with the link. Hoping to make next year. Glad you made it home safe.
