kiwis on route 66
Shamrock Texas to Amarillo Texas about 100 miles.
Well the day started a disaster. Right at the start we had a Jeep ambulance that was no go so we loaded him on the trailer. Then another Jeep ambulance was dead at the start so we loaded him.
Now we were two up on the trailer and that adds up to about seven tonne on the back of my Dodge Ram. Thank god she is the heavy duty model because that is one hell of a load. 100 yards from the start and we have another dead Jeep that was no go, so we put him up on Paul's trailer.
Another few miles and another dead Jeep with a broken fanny. He gets loaded on our last trailer.
The convoy finished early at noon and we spent the whole afternoon getting everything running again. We were given beer, money and shouted out to a big Texan steak house and challenged to eat a 72 ounce steak, we declined the challenge ( 72 ounce is about 2 kg )
Regards Peter, Paul and still no Mary
