Re: Getting impatient.......

Yes, it's really nice to be out of Detroit! And moving!

Hit Peru, IN at 8:26 PM EDT, Salem, IL is next! And that means Union Pacific!

Re: Getting impatient.......

Gunny, you are moving now. My last update was in Bellevue, OH. Looking at other deliveries, it looks mine will turn back to the west soon and start its way south.

Fumbler: Thnaks! Finally!

Idsoles1066: It looks like you're a day ahead of me - think the route is essentially the same?

Re: Getting impatient.......

Not sure if it is really ahead or not since Bellevue is east of Toledo??? Hoping in the morning I will know more.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Hmmm... It's a mystery.

Tomorrow will probably tell more. I am hoping to be at the Interchange (Salem, IL).

Interchange! Just 11 hours, 47 minutes after leaving the Oakwood Yard in Detroit!

Received in Interchange, 3/22/2014 12:02 AM Salem, IL

Now, if UP will only have a train there to catch it and keep it moving!

Congrats again Gunny, you are in the lead now. Can you taste the win yet? When do you head to Houston? The UP probably will not let it sit very long. The real question is once it arrives how long to unload and get to the dealer. We will see.

Re: Getting impatient.......

By the looks of the last couple update times (7:00pm & 2:30am), MIlous went out partying last night. Do not expect a morning update till noon. Hope he had lots of fun and forgot about this stuff for a while.

Re: Getting impatient.......

Unfortunately, due to some conflicts I can't change, I can't go to Houston to pick up my GC until the 8th. So even if mine SHOULD get to the dealer first (you still have a good shot), I'm certain you will be sitting in yours before I am in mine...

Mine has now moved from 'Received' at Interchange, to 'Loaded' at Interchange at 5:36 AM CDT. I am presuming that it means the car has been reassembled from the Norfolk Southern train, into the correct Union Pacific train for the journey south. UP is estimating a turnover to 'Industry' at 10 AM, the 25th. Of course, it still has to get to the dealer, and I understand that's about 25 miles....

+1 on hoping Milous gets a break from all the good work he does here!

Your profile shows location of Boulder, CO but you are picking your GC up in Houston. Are you actually closer to Houston or did you order from there? Just curious cause I figured yours was headed to CO area.

Re: Getting impatient.......

You got it right - I am flying to HOU to pick it up. The Houston group deal made it irresistible, and was $2500 better than the deal I got in CO.

I have friends in HOU I want to visit that I haven't seen in decades (High School and when I was based there with HP) plus will use the drive back as a bit of a holiday. Also visiting one of my vendors in Plano (Dallas) on the way back. This is a tax-deductible business trip, of course! But then I paid for the airline ticket (one-way) with Amex points, so it's not really that expensive...

And a great way to get to know the new diesel! (It's about a 1300 mile trip)
