      Heading east from Champaign, IL to Syracuse, NY with an empty car dolly

      I'm going East to Syracuse NY from Champaign IL through Indianapolis IN, Cincinnati OH, Cleveland OH, Erie PA, Buffalo NY, and Rochester NY. I'll be loaded coming back (I'm picking up an S60 '04 T5 stick shift) but will be heading out from Illinois Friday afternoon 1/17 with an empty car dolly. If you want to pitch in for gas, I can haul a CAR/engine/trans/body parts etc. Eastbound. You'd need to have everything ready for quick load and unload. We're driving 12 hours out, load up, and 12 hours back.

      We'll have an '16 Chevy diesel 3/4 ton and rented car dolly. PM me with you phone # and I'll check my PMs up until noon Friday 1/17.

      Man that trip was loooong. 30 hours. We were fighting sleet and snow all the way back. The Uhaul dollies suck - we drug a taillight 200 miles, had to find a walmart at 4am in BFE to get hardware to bolt the thing back together. Plus diesel was crazy high for just that weekend. Diesel was $3.72 in Pennsylvania. We found it for $2.63 with a lot of searching but man. My buddy says never again.

      Deja Vu! My daughter went to Syracuse University so I often went to pick her up on weekends in the winter months and your post sure brings back memories. The lake effect snow storms upstate NY are often brutal so I know what you're talking about. 30 hours can take a toll on you when driving through weather like that. Fortunately, we only had to drive 4 hours into CT to pick up my daughters new XC40 R-D. The deal was awesome on a leftover. Good luck with yours!

      I had a issue posting photos as well, currently I'm using the app called tapatalk. It tales a few to set up, but posts pictures directly into the thread, nice car, good to hear you didn't have any accidents in that bad weather
