He's headed into philly so you should have a visitor soon.

Now which of these wasn't a glaring indicator that you might be going to fast? Or did the combination of these somehow make you feel more at ease? I think Ron has a wiring issue upstairs.

Aye, I know. I licked it long ago when I first laid eyes on it. Greg has great taste in Rovers. I think I'm just going to buy his trucks as he rotates through them. I already missed out on the 101. Of course I need to learn to let go of them too.

Hey guys, made it safe all the way. 450 miles, 3 tanks of gas, 4 pit stops, no mechanical issues. It was a fun trip and it was great seeing Ron and Flagg and all the guys at the Happy Hour.

Charles, congrats on the new ride, it should be fun for you. I know it is going to a good home. Post the rest of the pics, so we can get some "closure".

Greg

Kenny,

I know. We left because the baby was getting restless. I'll come visit Saratoga once the new Defender shows up for an "Uppr Hudson Valley" happy hour. Looking forward to it.

Greg, when is your Defender due to arrive? It was nice meeting you at the NOVA HH Friday.

Count me in for an Upper Huson Valley happy hour starting June-September when we head north for the summer.

It was great meeting you too. Hopefully the truck will be here in the next week or so. It should be picked up tomorrow and it takes about 6 days they said. We'll definitely line something up.
