Looks like you've been around my neighborhood. Currently showing you west of my place. Are you already driving the K?

Not yet.  Was "test driving" the tracking app today.  My daughter is in Chicago for Thanksgiving so we went to downtown Chicago for the day. Just getting some sleep and will be heading down to Adam's place in South Holland for an anticipated 6AM blastoff

Re: Super K Chicago to Sonoma

Being able to track the location of the K is pretty cool.  I spent three minutes watching the dot move across the map of Iowa.  Unfortunately for Mike actually driving the car, I had the more exciting stuff to look at.

Re: Super K Chicago to Sonoma

Never had to follow someone like this before, did he drive or walk back and forth to the next overpass and building before just wandering around the car? Lost or in  panic with a limping car?

May have run out of gas and the fuel pump died - or the fuel pump just died and stranded him  He is a man alone and cold with just his thoughts to keep him happy.

Did he backtrack to the "bug splat?"  He's making random 50 ft swings in direction.

Like a moth to the flame, I can't stop checking in. Hind sight says this should have been the standard all year long.

Re: Super K Chicago to Sonoma

Best guess is a flakey fuel pump relay.  I robbed the power wire from the stereo & got the pump running by holding the wire on the battery (other end connected to the pump). Got it to the gas station then took what I think is the fuel pump relay out & cleaned & "adjusted" it.  Not sure if that was the cause but after that it ran like a champ.

This is the story of the K, all year long.

Re: Super K Chicago to Sonoma

Getting ready to hit the road for the final push of the Denver leg. Mike Burg from Schumacher's Taxi Service is passing by in 30 minutes on his way to Denver so we will be carvaning. It will be GREAT to have company!!!

Watching him walk around the hotel is kinda entertaining.

I always preach to my daughters that apps like this are silly, because it lets people know exactly where you are.  Mike is advertising all over the interweb that a priceless race car sat in a hotel parking lot all night long...unattended!  I can't believe it wasn't stolen.

Very true.  Maybe the criminal element in Denver will be more alert..

Isn't that who Mike is dropping the car off to?

Ever since it was mentioned that the K was caravanning with Schumacher's Taxi Service, I can't get the theme music from Smokey and the Bandit out of my head.
