I know I will probably only be able to wheel for one day, but I don't know about anyone else.

Oh Randy Here's a pic of those MTRs on beadlocks.

Why don't we reset? 9 Nov (Sunday) should work for me.

How about the rest of you? I think that one full day would be good. Maybe spend the night at a motel Sun eve and drive home on Monday. But, that's just MY vote...

Ken, the 9th sounds good to me.

Randy, these beadlocks (made by allied) are technically not "DOT" approved and are labeled for affroad use only. First off as you know most cops probably wouldn't know this and wouldn't hassle me, and if I was ever stopped for running them I'd say that they are the streetlock "simulated" beadlocks. This however doesn't mean that they are unsafe. Most manufactures don't have the $$$ to have them tested by the DOT and are therefore not approved for road use(one manufacture has done so, and as a result their beadlocks are $300++). The one thing you have to do is to consistantly check the torque on the bolts to make sure they don't come loose. If I was going to balance then I'd use equal(kinda like adding sand), but in my opinion the MTRs are pretty good wthout balancing. Plus its not like they're going on vehicle that will go above 70 mph, so I see no need to. The MTRs on the rover aren't balanced and I have done 90++ mph, but I don't recommend it, remember I'm a crazy teenager.

Jorge, Did you mean 11/9 instead of 11/7? Hope that you can get the time off from work.

CVC, will the 9th be any better for you?

OK...So Sunday 11/9 is the day. The big Gas Station/Mini Mart up the street should be a good place to meet. What time should we meet up?

Dante, are you going to be able to make it?

I can't make it Friday or Saturday, but I will definatly be there Sunday.

How does 8:00 on Sunday at the gas station sound, or do you guys want to get some more sleep?

I'm going to drive up early Sun morning. (Not as early of a schedule as Mike H or Dave M usually keep, since I won't leave until about 5am). I think its about a 3.5 hr drive for me. Can we say... 9-ish for me? I can meet you on the trail or in the parking lot. we can share cell phone #s offline and that may help getting together if we're running late.
