Well, if my projected delivery date is met (and it's been pushed back a couple of times already) it will be 4 months and 1 day from order to delivery. Some things never change!

If you see my wagon on the trail, can you give it a little push? I'd sure like to get it in the barn before the snow flies.
Same as an earlier post, it is back at Jefferson waiting to be loaded to a train. Looks like this was missed in a prior track update, I am fixing that now.

Yours is being trucked to Toledo then to your dealer. There may be a 1-3 day layover at Toledo before heading to your dealer depending on the Truck schedules.

Of course, any order before 8/9 was just being held. Its only been 12 weeks and 1 day since order books officially opened.

Will, we know you're special.

Special, Rubber Room Special right now... Actually neither Milous or I could figure out how mine got in there. I actually have a POC from January 16th 2013. We used it as a judging marker for a while to see what was happening.

The lesson learned was that all you could do was wait and see what happens, because there were no alternatives, and the situation was completely out of ours or anyone else's control. You just have to wait for whatever comes next, and no one really knows how the events will unfold until they are already happening.

Willx - You are shedding welcome light on a void of information. I appreciate all your efforts in doing so.
Well said.
