D=Day 10/27/12

So the day has arrived.
On Saturday we pack the truck and set off on the 3 hr drive to pick up our truck. Did I mention we forgot the GPS at home and were now in the backwoods of Southern Georgia. Now we were about 30 minutes off course and getting close to not making it to the bank. We cut it close to the Bank to get the cash, who would of thought for an entire hour we could not find a Bank Of America.  We finally find one and meet Clifford, the former owner of my now 1950 Chevy 3100.  He was having a hard time parting but I have set up this blog to keep Clifford informed of the process of the Truck so he can see that we are taking care of the truck very well.

I came prepared with a winch on the back of the hauler and now we went off to U HAUL to rent a car transport.  Here we met Jimmy which was a sketchy character that went on and on about the one time that their location was sued cause of a car transport that came off the hitch or something.  I want to thank Jimmy for adding more stress to the long trip.
Jimmy is on Left....

So we have no problems getting the truck on the trailer and head home bound.  One Problem with Home, other than the 10 cars parked outside and around my driveway, I came to realize that I had no help to get the truck down from the trailer since my driveway has a wicked incline.  Finally got the truck down with the use of the winch and brute force and possible risk of death at some points.  I then pushed the 3100 into the garage with my Silverado and that was another adventure as the trucks decided they would become one. Finally in the garage now I need a Break. Who's Idea was this......

Could not pull them apart!!!! Yikes!!! but its in the GARAGE....
Temporarily lost the Bumper to the Silverado, Battle Silverado vs. 3100....3100 wins!!!!
