There is a dyno out the road from the shop about a mile but he isn't set up for diesels so dyno is a no go...

Aaron there is a dyno in Atkins VA at exit 50, that is set up for diesels. I don't know if it is a portable dyno or stationary in their shop.

Okay last call for those willing to make the run or link up along the way. I'll be rolling up I-64W to I-81S (unless there's a better way). I have one other member who's linking up for the trip.

Hi Dan! Good to meet you and your dad! I would like to see some of those cars we talked about. You have a very nice truck yourself. Looks like it runs in the family.

Aaron....good to put a face with a name. Reallygood to meet you. Enjoyed myself and meeting others at your shop. Thank you and the wife for being so hospitable and allowing me to make a mess making my emergency repairs. Thankful it wasn't on the road somewhere.

I didn't get a chance to make it around to everyone, but we sure couldn't have asked for a better day to hang out.

Special thanks to Brian for running me around town finding the parts I needed and for patiently keeping me pointed in the right direction and getting me home safely. I had not been to bed since Thursday trying to get the truck ready for the road and the trip home was rough.

Look forward to the next time.
