kiwis on route 66
Needles California to Barstow California about 150 miles
Well the day started half ok we had to deal with a half flat tyre on the big red Dodge Ram.
We rolled up into a two bit town called Amboy for lunch. The town is owned by one guy who is the sheriff, Mayor, Postmaster and Undertaker.
At the least you now who is running the place unlike NZ which is simply a third world unmitigated political shambles.
To some extent we have moved to executive management roles in the convoy as there is a guy now on the convoy who can spin spanners better and faster than us. His name is Warren and he is an absolute automotive genius.
We rolled down Route 66 into Calico - a ghost town. However 10 metres from the end point a Jeep died with a busted front diff. The pinion nut had come undone and had seized the diff. Paul used his magic and disconnected the front axles and we loaded him on the trailer.
Below are some pics of mascots two of the March units have adopted, the moose heads and the road runners.
As previously advised the Americans are desperate for more kiwis on the next convoy in 2019 so I have taken the liberty of booking Gav, Nathen, and Bernie to participate.
Regards Peter and Paul
