The crew is taking a break while in Toledo OH to take care of a couple issues. First the compressor is giving them a little bit of an issue, and now the first blown tire of the trip on the trailer!
Im sure they will be back on the road in no time!
As we were all rolling out of bed this morning, the Contrabego was rolling through the windy city passing the 2,200 mile marker. Since then they have made it into the “Land of Lincoln” and apparently are lost, trying to find a Panda Express for lunch. I guess when you gotta have Orange Chicken, you gotta have it!
As for the Heckmanns, they are probibly still sleeping as they chug through Wyoming. As soon as we get an update from team cobra, we’ll let ya know.
Got any questions for the bego crew? Wanna know what movies they are watching, or their choice of energy drink to keep them awake on those night drives? Just comment bellow and we’ll get their answers.
One last travel update for the evening.
As the contrabego crew was taking a break in Salt Lake City this morning, our resident bass drum twins the Heckmanns were boarding the California Zephyr.
For the second year in a row, they will be making the trip while sitting back in complete comfort. They have their own room on board the train, and I know they loaded up their ipods and PSPs with plenty of movies to keep them entertained as they watch the world go by. I had the pleasure of taking this trip with them last year, and it really is a great (and cheap!) way to see the country.
We’ll be following them along their trip as well, periodically updating you on where they are.
The contrabego has been pushing strong since last nights departure, already covering 770 miles. The guys on board are having a great and taking 300 mile shifts at a time!
Here are some pictures from so far!
The begos microwave knows what time it is!
