    We are doing it again this year! Lori and I are Honored to host the 8th Annual East Lake Camping Oilburners Fall Get Together! (AKA Big Ed didn't make it to the Rally, Rally)

    Where: Eastlake Campgrounds, Hopkins MI. http://www.eastlakecamping.com/

    When: September, 10th to 13th. Most will come in on Friday the 11th, but we will be there Thurs the 10th for anyone that can make it that early.

    Who: Whoever wants to attend, With or without an IDI or a Diesel for that matter, Bring what you can bring, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Volvo Wagon, Bike,..whatever,.

    Why: Because it is Buy one Night, get one night Free Camping! cant beat that! See the website for the coupon.

    This is an event that Lori and I have been putting this on every year just an excuse to have a laid back camping weekend with friends. No events are planned but we usually end up blowing something up and giving us something to fix, Making a Junkyard run to the local Pick and Pull, or go to my shop to fix whatever we broke.

    This year the Campground is having a Pot Luck and we are invited to attend if we would like.

    I have GOOD News and the BAD News on the campsites;

    GOOD News: They have revamped all of the campsites and made them larger.

    BAD News , There aren't as many to campsites to choose from, so space may be limited. MAKE YOUR RESERVATIONS EARLY PLEASE!

    Right now I have 6 campsites, one Cabin and one of the Rental Trailers on hold for our group. They will hold these for 2 weeks so please call in as soon as you are able to reserve your spot.

    When you call in please let them know that you are with Darrin Tosh and the Ford Diesel Truck Get Together.

    Here is the number, Cathy and Greg are the owners. Andrea their daughter works there as well.

    269-793-7177
    3091 Weicks Drive
    Hopkins, MI 49328

    If you have any questions or suggestions please let me know! and also let me know asap who is able to attend.

    Hope to see ya there!

    So is it the 8th or the 9th year? Do I need to drive 88mph to get to one of them? Lol. The Pruitts will be there either way. Not sure what we will bring. Typically I like to come to this diesel event in something other than a diesel just to keep it interesting. I'm suspecting car this time around. It rides so nice.

    Tim,

    The Red and White one belongs to Seth (93cc7.3)

    The Black and Silver one belong to Andy (GRU)

    Both of these trucks are Cummins Conversions. Both still get worked like they are supposed to. Seth works on his family farm, and has posted pictures of it being used as a "farm truck".......
