Thanks Debbie for the posting.
As some of you are "old timers" and there are some new runners on here who might not be familiar with the rig. This is an optional donation. I manage the rig year round, taxes, insurance, etc. The maintenance is also very high, oil changes, tires, etc. . .
With that being said, I cannot afford to fuel the rig for the entire run. I will estimate around $1500 to $2000 on fuel alone. . . for the Bandit Run 2012. As some of you know, the engine had a major breakdown in Oct. 2011. I drove it home from Louisiana and the fuel economy was greatly improved.
What Debbie posted is true, all donations have dried up. I hate to beg for money, but I am also realistic. The rig cannot leave out with dry tanks and no fuel money. We have always manged to take it on the run from very generous donations.
Again, forgive me for asking, but I'm not going to wait until the last minute either. We all have budgets. This is optional. There is a link to my paypal on the front page of the BR.
I will give updates as to the status of the truck going on the run.
