Coal Creek July 22-24
« on: June 21, 2005, 03:54:39 PM »
Dates: Thurs, July 21, 22, 23. Riding Friday, Saturday, and maybe Sunday.

For the planned trip to Coal Creek, this is the hotel Vrroom, Bucked, and I have selected.

This hotel is only a few miles from the trailhead. It has an outdoor pool and continental breakfast.

Special Rate: $70 Ask for the Wind Rock Rate

Comfort Inn
433 S. Rutgers Ave. , Oak Ridge, TN, US, 37830
Phone: (865) 481-8200 Fax: (865) 483-6142

I called around and asked. I talked to the Hampton Inn, but they have no parking for trucks and trailers. Used to be able to park in the pawnshop parking lot next door, but can't anymore.

After a long day's ride, we can hang by the pool and relax. Looking forward to a great trip. Who's in

Lude,
You gonna make the CC ride???
You NEED to.
It's a great place and you need to come out of the Great White North (eh) and see what real heat and humidity is. 8)
Moskito - Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming \'WOW-What a Ride!\'

Lude, Glad to hear you're going to make the CC ride.  That is an awful long way though.  How long is it going to take you to get here?   Are you coming by your self?  

I'm having a really hard time getting my cv hubs out.  If I hadn't damaged the output shaft seals to get PB blaster past them I'd leave them in.  I built a tool to pull on them with a lot of force.  Maybe there free up in a couple of days.  I'm pretty much dead in the water with this project until I can get the tranny back in.  I have attached a pic of the tool.

I've had at least one..I think both of ine out last year or the year before...so I'm hoping I can pop them fairly easily.

As far as me making CC....just say I'm working on it :) If someone can line a basket case up for me (chassis and tranny) and a buyer for mine that would make it a lot easier  :roll:  It'll be ~26hrs of driving...I'm not sure if Tman's up for the trip now or not....haven't heard fro mhim in awhile.....

Lude, 7 may not be that many - but what a group!  I was actually thinking that if you and Ramjet were also going I'd even try to get there (I'd have to try to organise a hire ride but would like to go even just to meet the guys in person).  Throw in Sniper, Big Tom, Red and Kiowa and I'd definitely be there!

I may be able to make this ride also. An old friend called today saying he was going out there so I am interested in this ride. 1000 miles each way, ouch.
