It was a fantastic trip. I kept busy doing classes with Justin but getting to meet so many of you was awesome.

Guess we will eat well around here this week.

Great pictures Pedro.
Did you say BBQ at Rick this weekend?

You're welcome.

I had a blast... my kind of event.

I was a little disappointed...I only say one waxed Jerry Can and no Beagles.

On the upside; you couldn't swing a dead cat without hitting a Ginger.

We came in Trey's trident green 83 110 recently converted to auto. It was parked between Jonesy's red 110 and Lav's red 130 in Pedro's 2nd picture. Pretty much sat in the same spot Thursday to Sunday.

Essentially lost high/low beams...which was NOT the switch, but actually the indicator stalk (with the manual flash high beams). Same thing happened to Galpin so I knew what it was...quick fix was to duct tape the indicator/flasher stalk pulled back so I had full time high beams. Sure, I pissed a bunch of motorists off for the rest of the drive...but I got home!

Didn't take a ton of pics but here's a few I have:
Pics finally (mods...get that app fixed!!!):

nope. I guess 3 cigars in a row and a bottle of Ron Zacapa was too much for one night. We kept drinking waiting on Rob to show up in full scotish regalia for his rum tax!

Sorry I didn't make it.
All the wrenching wore me down.
That's what happens when you turn in early and sleep through the final festivities.

The drive home was easy, reaching 85 at times.
Last night installed a manual boost controller and it is even faster today.
Now to figure out the formula to adjust the stock MW-IP...

Great seeing you Mark.
Wish we would have made it over for a visit.
Will do it next time for sure.

I hung out until Monday morning and found the guy who was doing the filming..I should be able to get some good aerial pics of the group area...he's going to go through the shitloads of fi,m he has and send it to me.. And, my wife and I... And Matilda had a blast, it was great to put faces to the names and I will say, none of you shitheads looked anything like I imagined, in your defenses though that's probably a good thing..
