Arrow Transportation May 16-19; Memphis to Louisville to Champaign to Memphis

Able to haul/transport some stuff.

Looks like I'm making another one of my Mercedes hauling trips and meeting/seeing some forum members. I will be driving my 2000 Dodge Dakota, 4x4, crew cab with the 4cylinder Cummins swap pulling an 18 foot car hauler. Here's my tentative itinerary:

May 16 or 17th: Departing Memphis, TN and driving to Louisville, KY --- car hauler will have a light ivory w123, 300D on it; truck bed will contain an OM617 turbo engine.

Next day: Will be unloading the car and driving to Champaign, IL; Car Hauler is empty. I can haul stuff.

Same day or Next day: Arriving in Champaign, IL area; unloading the OM617 engine and driving home. I can haul stuff.

If you have anything big and need it hauled along the way, please send me a PM.
If you are along the way and want to see my unique truck, please send me a PM.
If you are along the way and have something either Mercedes related or uniquely diesel related, please send me a PM.
I'm always looking for a reason to take a break and stretch my legs.

You're not selling the '84 with the Henna Red interior, are you?

Of course NOT. This is the second time I'm had this conversation today. This car has hubcaps and Palomino interior.

I'm selling the 1981 w123 300D NA with the ceased engine to a forum member, so take his rust bucket off the road. I wish the Red interior car had such a nice interior. Photobucket doesn't seem to want to cooperate with Chromium, so here's one pic.

Arrow Major Revision in next trip

Okay, Houston, we have scheduling issues. It looks like I will NOT have my car hauler behind the truck.

Here's a tentative new route:

Memphis, TN to Champaign, IL via I-55 & I-57
to Lafayette, IN if I find the correct differential this weekend for Tom
to Louisville, KY for a family visit
to Owensboro, KY to retrieve some w108 parts
to Memphis,TN

I will be running empty from Champaign, so seats, engines, transmissions, subframes, etc --- big stuff you don't want to ship are all game.

9 cylinder diesel truck

My 9 cylinder diesel truck is ready to roll.....except I need to buy at least 2 new tires before hitting the road. UGH. Rotten valve stem on the front driver's side; had to change it yesterday before I got home.

5 cylinder in the back and 4 up front in case you are wondering.

actual route

Met two more forum members. It's amazing some of the stuff I had in common with the gentleman from Illinois.

Due to rain and work, my trip got cut short to this route:
https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=7171+Goodlett+Farms+Pkwy,+Cordova,+TN&daddr=Arcola,+IL+to:Bowling+Green,+KY+to:2220+Grand bury+Way,+Germantown,+TN&hl=en&sll=39.684755,-88.306437&sspn=0.038641,0.077162&geocode=FQHAGAIdC2ul-ikvBdtUG51_iDGPGFgspCtmWA%3BFZOKXQId-4y8-imV9uUqHyNziDEIxPyG2RO4pQ%3BFXBtNAIdrvnY-inT5PrpvOhliDFPLHkgkKwKpw%3BFcVpFwIdqHim-ikFZIVtDJl_iDGSHt72GFjN1Q&oq=22&t=h&mra=ls&z=7
