Donny`s Blizzard Cub Trip

Postby johnbron » Mon Dec 29, 2003 1:45 am

Donny is on his way back from Oregon hauling 2 Cubs he went there to buy. He called me a half hour ago and said he is almost to the summit (South-Bound) and traffic is at a standstill and that vision is at about 3 vehicals in front of him distance wise. I just checked Ore.D.O.T page and it said traffic will not move until at least midnight. (10:30-now) Anyhoo, this post will be a reminder to him when he gets home of how hard he worked for those 2 Cubs he is hauling. {A true Cub lover, Through rain,sleet,mud or snow he go}.

Sounds like another story for the cub stories section! Maybe we can get John from Texas and his flyin' whirlycub to rescue Donny!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

pretty tough when you have to go under the cover of a blizzard to get a cub, just to keep the 'cub snatcher' amoung us from spotting you. :lol:

OK, Heres the scoop on Donny as of 8:AM this morning. I talked to him on the phone yesterday and he was still not able to travel. He & family + dogs spent the first night in the pickup in "Blizzard" and then they let him return back to Ashland Ore. to wait out the storm, where he got a motel and was then able to get "HOT" meals for all.__The road has opened this morning__. I have not talked to Donny since yesterday but am expecting a call sometime this morning as planned on meeting each other as he passes through My town of Red Bluff here so I can Drool over his goodies. Anyhoo thats all I know fer now.
