well i made it back in one piece. it was over 2000 mi and only had a few mishaps along the way, i only had to replace 2 front calipers, both rotors, pads, i managed to bend both front rims b/c of potholes but did manage to bend them back w/ my trusty hammer. sorry steve i didn't get a chance to meet up with you, i forgot to take your number down before i left and of course my buddy doesn't have a computer.

i envy anyone that lives in the midwest. we saw some of the most amazing scenery and did some awesome trout fishing in Lake Taneycomo in MO. seems like the trip just made me realize how much i hate being in Jersey. i also managed to stop by TS and see Caged Fury put down a serious 10sec pass and i also stopped at Pure Flow Tech to see their operation. let me tell you that these guys have their stuff together, from the R&D they do to the wonderful quality control. also i got a sneak peak that their new Demand Flow units. put it this way they had one running for 3 weeks at 45psi, i could grab the motor and it was only warm.:eek:


enough talk here are some pics.

another funny story came about when we stopped at another place to do some fishing. i pass over a bridge and see a nice little spot. so i turn around and go back, as i'm coming down the road an older dodge van passes me kinda fast, whatever right. Wrong, i get down to the water and there are 9 puppies not more than a few months old just ditched there. we're like wtf:mad:? both of us being animal lovers we can't just leave them there, so i call around till i can find a place that can take em'. poor little guys.

Looks like you had fun.

I didn't even know you were coming into Missouri. Where at did you go? Or drive through?

this was my first real vaca. it was a blast and i can't wait to go back. it really made me hate living in NJ, i'm not a concrete type of person. i was down in Branson but came back up through St.Louis. it was soo relaxing, even with the mishaps. it was a very expensive trip though, i think i spent over $600 bucks easy just in fuel and repairs lol. so now i'm broke again :(

my route was NJ-> Pa-> Wv-> Oh-> Ky-> Mo-> Il-> In-> Oh-> Pa-> shitty jersey again.

only got pulled over once too.

Of all the places I've been I will say NJ is by far and away my least favorite, I don't know how you guys do it. Truck looks awesome, nice to see a slammed diesel and not a lifted one.

Shoulda stopped by in STL for mechanical help if ya needed it.

looks like you saw the nicer park of the state, personally i cant stand living in the ST. Louis area, too many people, not enough woods and stuff.

My fiance's aunt and uncle just finished building their house on table rock so atleast i got a place to go now whenever i want too. i havent been there in a while but plan to be going down sometime soon i think
