If they drive it from Selkirk and it gets to us a day before - I'd say go for it! I seem to be stuck in Cleveland so we might catch a train together. I'll leave instructions for my Unicorn to hop on the train if it sees a white Overland Unicorn with an oak tree beside it.
Looks like I have fallen a bit behind you now (11/14), I doubt I'll catch up. I checked my old emails from 3 years ago. It took two days from arrival at Selkirk to my dealer in the Hartford area. Hopefully we won't wait as long. He said truck, but I didn't have MOTs back then so I don't really know.

Re: 2014 diesel production

Why? WHY? How Come? Why does my Jeep sit in Detroit for yet another day? Are there no more trains? I am so looking forward to driving it...

Milous, I was mostly lamenting in jest. However, your powers never cease to amaze me. Thanks for looking so deeply into your crystal ball. I promise not to be too critical if it doesn't go down this way.

Sorry to hear that. I moved about 100 miles over the past 2 days to Wesleyville PA. Couldn't find anyone else that stopped there. Google maps shows a giant GE plant for making diesel engines just beside the yard. No engine swapping please! I'm definitely learning some geography on this virtual road trip. I'll cross my fingers for you to catch the New-Boston express train.

Willx/Milous,

Any insight to alleviate the insanity? The dealer gave my the name of the transporter they typically use, Cassens, tried to use their tracking..nothing. They are thinking it may be going by a different company. The only piece of info I can correlate to my SFU still sitting there is that uwBadger's (I'm assuming his is going to Wisconsin as well), is also sitting there since 11/04. Maybe on the same truck and waiting for another vehicle(s)?

It really isn't that strange... I tracked a few other vehicles in other yards that did this. It will post when it gets picked up but often they will sit for a few days waiting for a truck to go the right direction, and or the yard receives a larger volume of vehicles and is simply turning around the deliveries a little slower. If it sits there past Friday, I would be surprised but at 4-5 days it is simply on the higher side of average right now. It is not presently sitting on a truck, it is in the lot waiting for a truck.

I think DEF and DPF guages would be invaluable. Anyone here maybe Wilix have some influence over future updates to EVIC? Even if was able to display on UCONNECT would be ok, im sure the info is on the BUS.
