Ft. Smith, AR to Erin, TN!

Ft. Smith, AR to Erin, TN!

We rose early, ate breakfast at the hotel, and hit the road.  We visited the United Way offices in Ft. Smith, AR, Little Rock, AR, and Memphis, TN.  We met some really great people, and witnessed some awesome volunteer work being done  everywhere we stopped.  The two bigger cities had their local news stations there [...]

Amarillo, TX to Ft. Smith, AR

Amarillo, TX to Ft. Smith, AR

We spent 4 days in Amarillo getting some much needed rest, interviewing with several news stations, newspapers, KJRT radio station, and a class at West Texas State A & M University.  When leaving Amarillo, Jesse drove the Stealth from our office on Hester Drive, and on to I-40 as the sun was coming up.  Beautiful [...]

From Gallup, NM to Amarillo, TX!!!!

From Gallup, NM to Amarillo, TX!!!!

We stayed up late last night, and got up early this morning to work on Stealth.  Because of the mountainous terrain, we decided to trailer Stealth for a while, so we drove to Albuquerque to meet the United Way.  What a wonderful reception!  They had balloons in the trees, and about 30 employees and others [...]

Driving through the desert!

Driving through the desert!

Up early, supposedly to beat the heat, Jesse worked on the Stealth, installing the new batteries.  He managed to get a loose wire caught on a post of one of the batteries, and it literally melted and fused a washer and nut together, along with severely burning two of his fingers!  We doctored him up [...]

California and beyond!

California and beyond!

We spent the weekend in California, driving down the coast and stopping at several beach areas.  People would immediately swarm the car and ask a hundred and one questions about the car, and the wheels.  It was a lot of fun just seeing their expressions!  We parked on Santa Barbara Pier for several hours, and [...]

Jesse Perdue is now in charge of Stealth!

After 2,200 GRUELING miles, my back is out and I HAVE to step down. It’s either that or permanent back damage.  It wasn’t riding in Stealth that did it, but rather working on it.  I’ve bent my 6 foot, two inch body over the car for a year and a half and my back just [...]

Day Six - Carson City, NV to San Francisco, CA

Day Six – Carson City, NV to San Francisco, CA

Up early, out the door, and over the mountains – literally!  It is really amazing how quickly the terrain changes from brown desert floor, to dry, brown hills, to beautiful green wooded mountains!   Bill took a different route than us.  We opted for a flatter entrance into San Francisco in order to “help” Stealth out!  [...]

Day Five - Delta, UT to Carson City, NV

Day Five – Delta, UT to Carson City, NV

Up at 5:00 A.M., Jay and Jesse spent 4 1/2 hours working on the car!  Vicki found out that Delta, UT is one of only 2 places in the world where people come to dig for certain minerals!  Very interesting!  After changing out the 2 melted batteries, changing the transmission back to the original CVT [...]

Day Four – Aspen, CO to Delta, UT

Up early again – this time all the guys were out helping Jay and Jesse getting the new batteries installed and sanding off the clutch where it was burned from the day before.  We said bye to Pat, our hostess, and took off.  It was really fun watching Jay and Bill ride together, sometimes side [...]
