Ready to Roll

Vintage Thunder is just about ready to go!

The wi-fi system is installed (but not yet tested). The new axles are on, the brakes are adjusted and wired, the new rear belly pan section is attached, and the trailer has been cleaned inside. Numerous other upgrades have been completed as well, so our bug list is only a fraction of what it was when we drove up the East Coast in April. It should be a real pleasure to use.

We didn't get to a few cosmetic tweaks inside, but all the important stuff is done. They'll be testing the clearance lights and brakes later today, and I plan to go pick it up Thursday morning.

Thursday and Friday I'll get the last of the sponsor decals attached to the outside, load up the personal gear, test the wifi system, and fill the propane tanks. (We switched to 20-lb propane tanks because the 30-pounders we brought up from Florida were earmarked for the Caravel. These little tanks should be plenty, especially in summer when we don't use the heater.)

On Saturday we'll hit the road toward Homecoming. It will be great to get back on the road!
