Right off the bat this morning at 8 AM we got back to work on the motorcycle trailer. Dad and I met at the trailer store and laid out the dimensions for where the chocks and tie-downs were to be installed. Then we started looking for a hitch for the car; the availability was not good. Finally, I found one all the way out at the Volvo dealership in Syracuse (a 3 hr round trip). This is where I spent the remainder of my afternoon. Now we just need to install the brake controller. Ryan conveyed equally frustrating complications with his efforts for the Ducati. However we have a success path for two trailers to be wrapped up tomorrow morning and we can finally hit the road!
Ryan suggested that I call this posting “Murphy’s Law” based on the fact that we seemed to be running into every possible road block with the trailer. How appropriate, except that there was a silver lining to the day; after several email communications, we finally met our new friends Carolina and Craig DeHond in person (be sure to read Carolina’s story under “CCS Friends”). We have so much in common, and it was nice to finally talk; you’re a great couple! Thanks for the road snacks.
