Good times had by all. Neil and Josh, thanks for driving up. For those who left early the night almost ended in a fist fight and it wasn't between me and LA Neil over who is more out of their mind (Neil wins that one). Some douche was leaning on Josh's truck. We told him to get lost. He then proceeded to lean against Brian's truck. Total retard who I will say wasn't at all worried about fighting the five of us.

Greatest line, "Whats your problem, it's just a jeep."

Good times tonite. Cool that the SD guys drove up. Definitely need to start doing this regularly. Had some Mozzarella sticks for Brad and reminisced about the first LA HH.

And yes, according to the drunk, little skinny douche, I just drive a Jeep...I think Josh was about to pound him to the ground.

Hahaha.... well we could have started stripping in the parking lot on top of your 110 if that's what you wanted!

It was a great time, definitely worth the trip. Yeah, Josh almost pounded some douchehammer's face in after he kept leaning all over the "Jeeps". It's also strange that at 10 PM Brennan's all of a sudden becomes a hip-hop club. That was unexpected.

But meeting everyone, talking about Rovers, and drinking beer... pretty good way to spend a night.

Thanks for a great night guys! It was awesome to finally get to meet you all, even if I almost had to beat some douchecopper down. We definitely need to do this again.

And yes the best line of the night "What's your problem, it's just a jeep...."

Well after you left, a band started to play. Isn't Thursday turtle racing? We called it a night when Neil pulled out his cock and said lets race.

------ Follow up post added December 9th, 2011 08:36 AM ------

Also huge thanks to San Diego Neil for printing me out a parts manual on polyester paper. It is awesome.

Can we start using los Angeles Neil's real name now?

Josh, can you send me info on your LED headlamps?

One is out on my 90 and I was kindly reminded by LAPD immediately after leaving Brennan's. They got me for missing front plate and let me slide on the burnt out headlamp. Just want you want to see after leaving happy hour; with alcohol breadth, blue and red lights flashing behind you. I didn't drink too much so I was fine.

What a d-bag, leaning on the trucks like that.

There was a circle jerk on Josh's truck.
Rover rack hardtop
Led lights
Rigid back up light - which by the way I meant to ask if you used a relay?

Hey who distributed those tender moments I had with my mom ^^^

You guys talk as if they guy was really a threat. He had to be like 99lbs. Given, he could have had a gun or a knife, I mean anything is possible. But one punch would not only have taken him out but would of sent him side to side, like a leaf. Generally, I carry a legal unloaded locked pistol in my car (not this time) so when you have that kind of responsibility, you tend to gravitate away from confrontation. Which is a good thing, especially if your a property owner. Also on my way home, the 110 cut out on me at a red light WTF!!!. I went through the standard Land Rover stall out reaction. Told myself to calm down at first, and not to panic. 2nd procedure, try to start it repeatedly in a way which will kill the battery quickly, no matter how many times you tell yourself that its not going to start. Waited the 1 minute listening for the fuel pump relay to kick in. Then as expected, it started. Also I noticed this morning that both my 90's have nails in their tires. Need to get those patched up today.

------ Follow up post added December 9th, 2011 09:51 AM ------

And also it was fun to meet you guys, I felt the venue was crappy (and far) but I give navydoc and crash credit for driving that far, than promply leaving afterwards. Stand up fellers. Look forward to seeing you guys again.

Sent you a pm on what wires and connectors you use. Looked like a cloth sheath.
