    Fourteen @#$%^& hours on the road from SC to Gaston's. Sunny B decided to eat his alternator belt when we hit 6,500 about ten miles West of Laurens. We had to take him back to his house and park him for now. Flipped a coin: pull the prop and change the belt, then depart, or just drive. Since I had nothing I needed at the airport in SC, we drove. What a serious miscalculation on the driving time. Who'da thunk that four hours zero-wind air time would translate to fourteen hours road time. We didn't spend more than an hour total time out of the truck, and we were doing 75 MPH as well, until we got off I55 NW of Memphis. Flying low, and it didn't help much.

    If anyone is flying back past Laurens, can you drop Paula off? At least that way I could make it a leisurely return trip. She has a Monday AM appointment. Maybe I can get her on something commercial out of Memphis, on Sunday AM. I'm sure not driving back at the same pace we used getting here!

    Looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday morning.

    Hi Mike,
    When you replace the belt you might consider wire tieing a second belt behind it. That way if the first belt ever goes, you can slip the second one into place without pulling the prop.
