Home sweet Home, Hopefully

I get to go pick up my XJ here in about 24hrs...I couldn't find an old thread that I started so I'll give the breakdown of the situation.

I bought Chewy's old XJ since he got out of the game, drove it from Chicago to Eielson AFB, AK without one problem. Wheeled it for about 6 months then got orders to move to Minot ND. While enroute driving through Canadia the Jeep broke, electrical gremlin somewhere in the ECU2 circuit. So I tried fixing it for a couple days and couldn't get it to run for more that 2min or get the RPM's above 2grand. I was forced to leave it in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canadia in a storage lot. Which is roughly 1900 miles away and over a couple mountain ranges. I had planned on going back up to pick it up in September since it was already August and the winter comes quick that far north. But a new co-worker of mine broke down in Missouri(sorry for spelling it wrong) roughly 1200 miles in the opposite direction. Me being the nice guy I am I spent my gas money to go get my Jeep to go get him stranded down south. So I went and picked him up and he swore he would pay me the gas money and so on with a little extra...didn't happen, recieved payment last month finaly. I then set-up a trucking company to haul my Jeep to Edmonton which is only about 750miles away. It is suppose to get to Edmonton tomorrow night and I can't wait to see her again. I get to do a bunch of wrenching before I can even drive it on the street again but it will be well worth it.

If you followed the twisted ramble of a story congrats, I'm just happy to be close to back in the XJ game again.

I would be worried sick if my XJ was that far away all by its lonesome.. Glad you two will be reunited though!

I got it and it is home safe, still doesn't run. I had hoped it loved me as much as I love it and it fixed itself but that didn't happen. The midwest cancer nearly tripled with it sitting up there in the snow without anybody keeping an eye on it.
