Pulling out of Rawlins - Multiple tracks running through the valley with long trains which reminded me of Arizona and New Mexico.
About 6 miles out of Rawlins is the town of Sinclair which is the headquarters of Sinclair refining:
Put this in for my daughter Becca as she used to work at Little America in Flagstaff:
This is Jim - he lost his drivetrain and was on the side of the road without any cell phone - got him hooked up with mine. I offered to tow him to the next town but he doubted my capability:

It's time folks please.......
And finally please remember the cause - soldiersbestfriend.org I will go into this in more detail and perhaps some level of haranguing later on, but for now here is the link .... and an additional link for donation SoldiersBestFriend - Donate Please :):) Oh and I would be a lot more comfortable if you use the "honorarium" option vs the "memoriam" option - you'll understand when you click on the link:):).
As you donate please enter my name in the "In Honor of Spot" so the folks at SBF can tally the results to encourage me and let me know WE are getting something done TOGETHER. I recognize we are really trying to honor the Vets but this is the only way SBF can tally the results of this drive (tour).
