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.

Special thanks to Lance and Debbie and Alex for hosting the event, Bob for all the awesome grub, This was out 5th BBQ! WOW..

Special thanks to Chris for all his help fixing my junk, Lance for running me into St Joseph Mo for a trailer spring and stuff.. Rob for jacking up my trailer, Casey for handing us all tools and hanging out (even after he had a brand new grandbaby!)
I will be starting a new thread on a 30th Anniversary TLCA / TAC event.. Stay tuned!

Chris can we send a club Thankyou to Molle? And if anyone wants to send a thank you to Molle on your own that would be awesome!
REmember 816-942-5200 is the Molle Toyota Parts Dept phone #.. Ask for TIM or BOB!

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.

I like the pic of Rech trying to break his other birf.

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

"A couple more, including one of Brock Pashia making google eyes at Holly Costello"

You can never start too young. Look at how Erik C. has ended up :crybaby:

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.
