Pilots are loaded...we're ready to roll
« on: July 19, 2005, 03:37:17 PM »
Pilots are loaded...we're ready to roll....well.....almost!

Have to change tranny and engine oil in the van yet. I'll be leaving work early this morning...supposed to work 7pm-7am...prolly leave around 4am...hit my parents place (Dad has a pit in his garage ;)) and change the fluids. Go home and see if I can sleep any  :roll:  Trish is picking Ted up at the airport around 11am tomorrow. Then we just need to load on the spare parts, tools, gas jugs and our gear, and we're off!

CAN'T WAIT I"M SOOOO PUMPED

Pick up a couple Canadian flags if you get a chance Ted...I lost one on the way to work tonight. Pulled the trailer and pilots to work to test the trailer out and see how the automatic MPV pulls 2 pilots compared to the old blue beast 5spd. It held 110km/hr up airport hill, I was impressed. She'll hold 110-120 in overdrive on a slight decline to level...otherwise she won't hold her speed unless you lock it out....curious to see the fuel mileage.  :huh:  Maybe try one tank at 90-100km/hr and one at 110-125 and compare....No way she'll pull in overdrive at 100-110....115-125 you have a better chance.

100 km/h = 62 mph
110 = 68
115 = 71
120 = 74
125 = 77 ;)
