Why don't you just bring a camera and take lots and lots of pix? You can help out where required and otherwise go nuts with the camera. That and flip burgers!

In high school we had a field trip to west point for photo class. As everyone else was walking the campus and taking photos, I bowled two games and got an F on the assignment.

Wish I could come by and help out and meet you guys, but I have a good friends 40th surprise b-day party to go to that day. Love West Point. Maybe next time!

Here is my "other 94" that has a diesel cruising past West Point a couple years back.

Jim I might not make it unless Jorge drives me up. I blew a diff or my t-case this afternoon on the GWB.

If you were one of the 2 millions cars stuck in traffic behind me... sorry

If you can drive it up and get a spare, you can do it at the shop.

And yes, just tell the gate guards that you are going to the Auto Craft, and use my name if they ask you who you're meeting. I'm a major, and it sounds so much more official if you put a title in front of the name...

Im going to check it out in the morning and get some tires in the air and spin them around and see if its a diff of the t-case. No spares off hand but im sure i can get one and do it over the holiday break. at least I got it off the road

I'm going to call Jorge tonight and see if i can ride up with him. I will bring some tools with me so we don't all use the one and only 19mm. Can I bring my dog? or is there other dogs around? cause he gets crazy around other dogs.

Not usually other dogs around, so it shouldn't be an issue.

Doing it here at least would mean a nice warm shop...
