maybe but i doubt it....ive got Keiths toy swap in there and the rear diff case i think is screwed up.....ive had a few people look at the setup and i think there is a tight spot in the pinion bearing section with new bearings

sucks for sure i had a blast last year and now with the new kit in my truck i cant go and beat on it!

I just called and booked a room and the hotel is almost sold out with no more doubles available. I guess that means there is going to be a big turnout this year.

I’m booked got a King bed non smoker executive room.....$55 per night nice.

Talked to Jenna at the front desk and she said she had 40 booked rooms. Hopefully the hotel bar will be open later than usual.

Also heard 3 or 4 people will be camping.

Hopefully that surly bartender who obviously does not like us won't still be there.

I talked to Bruce last night, there are still plenty of rooms. I'm heading up tomorrow hoping to get an early start and maybe make it in time for a late dinner.

Interesting. I called last night around 9PM and was told they were booked for the weekend! I had to get a room across the street.

Mike,

I just logged in and checked... Someone there did book out the rest of our Friday rooms. (that person will not like me tomorrow)
Still rooms Sat. & Sunday. I can go over there tomorrow and try and free something up for Friday night.
Your call? I don't mind doing it.

Bruce
