    ZRXOA relay for Uncle Snake. East Alabama to Vermont.

    Kind gents, noblemen and societies premier hooligans. Let's see if collectively we can help.

    Jake (Uncle Snake) has bought a nice motorbike lift from AL Terry in west Alabama. The primary plan to get this lift from Terry to Jake in Vermont has now fallen through.

    So...we need a new plan. Looking to see if we can knit together a truck/SUV ZRXOA relay to get this item up there to Jake.

    This lift weighs 185 pounds. It is: 66" long, 24" wide and about 12" tall.

    This isn't time sensitive so there can be gaps in the relay (would require temp storage during any gaps in time).

    So looking to see who can help with this. We can get the lift from Terry's home in Auburn Alabama to Atlanta, or the Atlanta metro area if that helps get this started.

    Who may be headed north from the southeastern US area in the weeks or months ahead?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm remembering that Goobr drives over the road and, with somewhat frequency, tries to get to central-south Georgia to see family. I'll ping him up on FB where he hangs out.

    And DOUBLE EDIT. I somehow named this thread "West" Alabama. Friggin' stupid public schools. Terry, and the lift, are in EAST Alabama. Right near Auburn University. I blame Perko.

    I can probably meet someone at the NY/CT border on I-84 and bring it to salnap on the Ma border, as long as my F'd up work schedule permits

    Likely won't be a problem. Of course, I'll need someone that can lift 92.5lbs on each end of the Pony Express.

    I can get it to ATL, only a couple of hours away. We're coming up on a nice time of year, I can likely convince my wife we need a weekend in the GA/NC mountains if that helps.

    Hey Scott, I'd be happy to help you out and make this easier on everyone. I don't need the lift and a local buddy has one that I could borrow if needed. Get it to Scooters house and we can work it out. Thanks again everyone.

    Yes, will fit on a single or double.

    If you want a place to stay on Saturday evening of the Vintage weekend we will have a sofa bed available. If you haven't been it's really a sight to see.

    Where else can you see this?

    Plan to bring it toward Birmingham at Vintage Fest time Terry. At the very least I'll get it and hold it. Then take it to Perkie on my way to the The True Grits 50cc Fun Run in Suches at the end of October.
