    I had a great time, everyone was waaaay too nice to me. The food and conversation were most excellent. Son had a great time, too. I was embarassed about chickening out on the rock hill, but got excused for that and received offers to help with driving skills to help overcome. Rob, you may have started something with Graham, he was most impressed with everyone's driving and rig capabilities. I hope it inspires him to become a little more involved.
    So far, I'm not quite into "I fix, you break". Maybe he'll get to "You break, you fix".

    Enough waxing on. Had a great time, great to meet everyone and thanks to ALL.

    I too had a fun weekend!!! Thanks to everyone for another good time! (seriously)

    I managed to get the pull truck stuck twice, got to pull myself out once and trainrech got the honors the second time.
    Broke the 40 twice (Rob, thanks again for pulls!!!) & fixed it once (Eric, you da man!!!) got it home and off the trailer the stupid thing runs again :confused: !!! Pretty sure a new coil will fix it for a few more years.

    Cruisers will break and can be repaired but good food and good people make for a great weekend!

    :beer: :beer:

    Shannon and I had a blast as well. Last count was over 40 for the Molle BBQ. We ended up replacing the brake booster on my rig this morning. I don't think I've had power brakes for some time...

    Hats off to the Asher's for allowing us to invade the farm and Bob Mathis for the BBQ.

    Cheers.

    I'm going to delegate that to our club secretary. Or does he prefer to be called Administrative Assistant?

    For a "wheeling-free" weekend, we did manage to need a few repairs:

    Mike C. - gear on transmission, electrical gremlins
    Rob R. - minor electrical gremlin which resulted in major overheating and a nice anti-freeze explosion
    Erik C. - trailer spring
    Chris R. - brake booster

    I also went through $5 in quarters last night to work on the outside of the rig. Still need to clean the inside. I hate mud, but it sure was fun.

    Don't care what ya call me... just call me in time for dinner :)

    I can put something together. Any suggestions on how or who to send it to? I'd like to make sure that they know how much we appreciate their support and to make sure Bob gets the recognition he deserves for his effort.

    Found you guys! It was a great weekend! Lance and Deb have a little bit of paradise to live on. Thanks . I look forward to the day of getting "little red" a little further away from stock so I can be with the big boys - thanks Rob for letting me ride shotgun while you pulled several to safety.

    You met her at the wrenching weekend a few months ago. Great dogs even if it's only for three seasons out of the year. :)

    Since I am new here, how can I paste an "avatar" to my signature line - tried editing it, but it won't let me do anything with the settings.
