deadeye, looks like i have found the trailer... It is the one in Utah, which makes it a whole lot easier. I just have to get the green light from you as well. http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=389...lpid,1,cat,152

Hi Guys,
My name is Tad. The route I have planned is through Browing which is about 100 miles east of Kalispell. I know customs is probably doable but you would need to contact them and see what is needed both going into Canada and from Canada back into the US. I got a couple of phone number for Canada that could probably direct you in the right direction if they don't have the answers, 204 983 3500 or 506 636 5064. I am sure I would need some sort of documentation from both of you that confirms that I am authorized to be transporting the trailer and truck.

As far as fuel goes I would just keep receipts and we could settle up when we meet to get your vehicle.

I will be up in Tok all of next week. Hopefully they have a computer for me so I will be able to keep in touch. My direct email is dunning_@hotmail.com. (note there is an underscore between dunning and @.

Arnold if you decide to get the trailer if you could get a wireing diagram for the plug and what kind of plug it is that would be helpful as I am almost positive I will need to change mine. As luck would have it I will be in Sandy (where the trailer is) sometime during the week of Aug 3rd-7th and then I plan on leaving to move up that next week end (the 9th) so If Richard could drop the trailer off at the South Town Expo center that would be great.

What is everyones expectations about picking up their units?

I think Arnold is in Fairbanks so I need to find out if he is able to pick up the trailer in Tok. Even if I end up delivering it to Fairbanks I will probably drop the truck in Tok.

I have to be at work in Tok on Aug. 14th so the plan is to leave on the 9th. When things firm up with the trailer I will have to look at the milage and see if I am allowing enough time. By the way is there insurance on the truck? I have never lost a trailer but would hate to have this be the one and not have insurance on the truck (and trailer for that matter).
Something I just thought of is that since the trailer is being purchased from a private party it is not going to have a temperary tag on it so it would probably be very helpful if I had a plate to put on it for crossing the boarders.

The truck will be insured. Unless my schedule changes between now and then...I'll be getting off the slope Aug 18th. I can have my truck and trailer sitting in Anchorage and head for Tok that Tuesday afternoon of the 18th...getting me there on the 19th unsure of the time (which is of no great concern). I'll bring a tent, sleeping bag and a fishing pole to pass the time if need be.
I'll just need to be able to get ahold of you after work or before you go to work for the day.
As long as you have the trailer registration there should be no concern with the plate thats already on it. If Arnold is just going to turn around and drive back to the states he can probably wait to re-plate it when he gets to his final destination.
My truck already has Ak plates on it and there should be no problem crossing the borders.

My buddy just called from Kalispell. He will be home and said he can drive the truck over and meet you in Browing no problem. He'll have a document with my signature etc giving you authority to be transporting the truck.

It's a 1938 Plymouth Pickup...not real heavy.

It is the standard practice, and DMV here instruct the seller to pull the existing plate off and then they are suposed to return it to the DMV. I don't think many people do the last part but most will pull the plate off. If I am driving without a plate or a temparary tag I may find myself getting pulled over more than I like. I am willing to do it but it may avoid delays if you can make sure there is a plate on it.

Rance you can plan on picking up the truck at your leasure after I get there. I don't have my contact information up there yet but will hopefully get it next week. Ether way I will give you someway to get ahold of me before I leave to move up there.

It look like it is a go. Glad I can help out here.

Awesome. I land in Anchorage from the slope...so I'll just head north from there and save myself some 6 hours of round tripping from and back to Anch.

I'll send you my Montana buddies contract info, at a later date.
