I’ve made some readability improvements. I’m still working on some mobile-compliant CSS, so .. that might be a thing eventually.
Can somebody log in and post a comment to this (on feedle.net, not at Twitter and Facebook) logging in to one of their social network accounts?
So it looks like the guys at GoWesty have my part for my exhaust. I’m still going to need to fix the bit on the chassis it mounts to, but at least I know $100 and an hour of elbow grease will get the Bismarck running legal again.
220 miles to go..
Well I made it to just outside Rawlins WY before all the attempts to repair the exhaust system just won’t hold it up anymore. I’m going to bailing wire together what I can to limp into town and lick my wounds. The Bismarck is taking on water, captain.
Will post more when I stop in Boise for the night…
So I made it to the outskirts of Portland. Right now I’m at the rest stop outside Wilsonville, there’s an accident on I-5 just north of here so I’m stopping to rest.
Still not feeling 100%, and I ran into a little.. mechanical problem that hastened my arrival here. I need to stop by a VW shop tomorrow and see what they can help me with. At minimum I’ll need that accelerator part replaced. Should be easy, nothing I haven’t fixed before.
So if I can get parts tomorrow I roll to Kings Valley and on to Bend. For purposes of this trip I’m considering Portland Mile 0, even if I’m doubling back a bit.
