|The Trekies have learned that the fifth wheel manned by Tony and Juliann has been grounded and will not attempt to make the upcoming trip. Tony will instead spend the next few months recovering from intestinal surgery which at this time is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct 24. As soon as communication has been established with his command center, we will pass on any information we receive.
Bummer...We will miss making all the stops at various cemeteries along the way and the constant questions and answers about the Catholic Religion via the CB radio. We were looking forward to seeing how Juliann was going to cope with Tony's new found freedom as he piloted his new shuttlecraft, (electric scooter) off into the sunset. We won't get the chance to see how well he obeyed Morticia (GPS), as he led us on toward the East. This plus the stigma of not traveling with our own personal mortician has cast a pall on the trip.
We hope that Tony recovers much faster than the doctors anticipate and that by getting the old Powerstroke up to about warp 0.2235 for a few days he and Juliann can intercept the rest of the group somewhere along the way, either going or coming...
