that definitely wasn't the plan.... but it's certainly an interesting summary of it. at best, I'd have bought a decent truck up here, tooled around in it for a week, and taken it down there. maybe not the best plan.

was also considering buying a truck down there after taking a bus/train there and take that back up here. Only advantage of that is the truck wouldn't be rusty, and needs to go half the distance as the michigan truck.

No big deal, renting it ended up being a good option. just not from uhaul, penske, budget, avis, or hertz

All in all sounds like a good move, worked out well and you saved some cash.

Now on with the project.

precisely. that will resume in the springtime. Next things to have done, (not in order of importance necessarily..)

1. Spray inside of frame with boiled linseed oil.
2. Blast axles and paint them. (get new axles with different gearing probably)
3. One piece shafts in rear.
4. Start re-assembling everything. (steps 5-245)

my build thread will get quite active this spring

People weren't ragging on you for taking a road trip, they were ragging about you taking a pos truck to Georgia and back. The rental was definitely the way to go!

Well, the first couple rental places were expensive, so I disregarded rentals altogether Getting my own truck was the best option until I found enterprise. They wouldn't give me a quote originally due to my age.
But yea, it all worked out.
