HDT Members On The Road, Including Their Current Locations

Recommended Posts

Traveled from Oskaloosa, Iowa by motorcycle to near the Kansas City Airport to load up and start the trip to Tallahassee, Florida. Left Friday morning about 0730 and arrived Tallahassee at 1830 Saturday evening. A short stop at Spacecraft for a last look around for a while, fill up with fuel and then a non stop to Sikeston, Mo. for food. Spent the night in the  parking lot with another pickup and 5th wheel that ran their generator all night. Left at 0530 with one stop for fuel. I have to remember to cross Jackson Mississippi off my list of cities to travel through it's not as bad as Hannibal. Mo. but almost.

In Goshen Indiana getting the front jacks replaced then to Elkhart to get Mor/ryde ti check the rubber springs, I have lost 2 of them this year, and it looks like I have 2 more getting ready to go, they are not bonded correctly, rubber is good, just not attached to the metal mounting plates.

Then if no bad weather might head to Canton Ohio to see big Al.

Roger, was that a 2015?

Glad they took care of your landing legs.  I would imagine there was no cost to you?  Like I said at the Rally, they were taking care of a lot of people.

Mine's a 2014, I have heard that in that build timeframe they had bonding issues, no hard facts but I will find out more when I get to Mor/Ryde this week, now to get the jacks done so I can unhook the trailer, as pinning the jacks up by myself is a pita!!

Hi Roger,

Glad to here that you are in Goshen, Indiana. Right now (12/12/17) it is snowing here in Canton. The low temp for tonight is going to be 14*f. 

Stay safe,
Al

We're stationary until mid-January at a nice country park near Conroe, north of Houston. Would love to get together with others in the area after Christmas.

I believe 110psi is going to be just north of Houston, and then be in Port O'Connor after Christmas, Just Don will be back in Port O'Connor just after New Years, and I am in Port O'Connor for a while, Glenn West is somewhat close too. I am sure I'm forgetting some others in the area........

We've been in West Tucson since about Dec 29th. We were on Synder BLM land for a couple days. We are currently at Justin's Diamond J RV park west of Tucson.

We have been down in the Rio Grande Valley since around the 1st of November getting ready to lead all the Mission Trips into Mexico.  Leaving tomorrow for the border so I won't be around much here for awhile.  Be safe everybody, and get out of that cold stuff!!!!

Sitting in Yuma, TN for the night, trying to decide whether to. Continue west on I-40 or drop down to I-20 tomorrow.  Weather looks ugly Monday night and Tuesday  if we stay on 40.

Finally made it down to Lake Havasu AZ.  Boondocking north of town.  No camp host this year so I'll be here until the BLM dudes kick me out.

So I've seen a few other HDT's here boondocking on BLM Land north of Quartszite. I need to go say hey to them. We are on our 5th day of boondocking on BLM land and really enjoying it. This is a whole new world and honestly we are enjoying it a lot more than being squished into campgrounds. I think we'll be working on setting ourselves up better for future boondocking. I did pick up a Honda EU2000i to supplement always having to run the big 5.5k Onan, but we still need a good battery monitor, a good inverter/charger and finally some solar & charge controller. I think as we add those items, the boondocking will be even more pleasant. We are really enjoying being here with the Xscapers too!

We're just west of Lafayette, LA.  16 degrees F this a.m.  Nearly all businesses closed due to ice.  Hopefully, it'll warm up tomorrow.
