Default Heading for Q

I brought the coach home from the storage facility today. 33 degrees and windy outside. after ah hour and a half running the gennie for the block heater, the 6v fired up (quite reluctantly, on the third try.) My rear key has always worked fine, but not today. It turned on, but would not engage the starter. I start from the rear in very cold weather so I can manually advance the throttle (no air pressure, no throttle).

Now we need to work out a route. All depends on weather. To begin we will probably take (from Ridgewood NJ) 287 to 78 and take 81 out of Harrisburg Pa. From there we will either continue South or head West as the weather dictates.

Not sure what day we will leave, but most likely on or before the 27th. We had all family over last weekend as we usually go. That way Christmas is done with us and they can go to their respective in-laws on Christmas.

Look forward to seeing you and Kathy in Q if they let my SOB in Gardner. It’s been awhile.

Safe travels Gardner. I'm looking forward to seeing you at Q!

I'd suggest heading south myself.
