For those following along, and wondering about the lack of progress reports, we hit a snag yesterday, 10 miles short of our lunch stop in Erie PA. 1000 miles into the trip! The Overdrive stopped functioning while we were rolling down Interstate 90 east. Without the OD, and with the tall rear gearing, the car only goes 45mph or so... we got off the highway and into a great transmission shop. We had 3 Hudson experts and parts as needed at our disposal, but after an hour or two of troubleshooting, it became clear it was going to be a more involved fix, and we flat ran out of time. My 77 year old dad had to get home for Dr appointments, and I had commitments involving the care of my young grandson. So we tucked Doc Hudson in for a nap at the home of one of my childhood best friends. (He's a local restaurateur who was waiting to take us to lunch at one of his restaurants)
We grabbed a modern rental SUV and poured on steam for Boston. We got in at 2am today.
I'll head back out next week to help Doc finish the journey to his new home!
