    I'll be back in San Jose just prior to the event, if all goes according to plan. Somebody's got to PM me an address, though, please.

    We should be able to make it too. I’ll probably bring burgers and dogs. I have a huge 36” camp chef griddle. Chips and snacks that kinda stuff.

    So is there a lot of property? What kind of fun things might we do?? Other than bullshit and look at trucks. Lol.

    Chairs, ez up, ice chest. Ummmmm??

    Also any idea how many people are coming? If me and the wife and kids go there’s 6 of us.

    So I know this is a STUPID question, but,, Any objections of dedicating this event, and maybe the rest.lol, to our Missing Man? Good, I didnt think so.
    We are bringing the OBAN again this year and Ill pick up a jug of Makers 46. Maybe some local brews from here. Little tighter on funding this year but that wont stop us.
    Oh and a bag of towels for eye drying as the stories are told.


    I think EZ Ups are a great idea as its hot as hell every year.

    Dedicating this event is an excellent idea. How could anyone possibly object? He will certainly be on everybody's mind.

    Oban? You know the way to my heart. However, OTOH, tighter funding is a very acceptable reason for cutting back. Don't overdo just because you love us all.

    Be sure to let me know your projected route in case I have to come rescue you :)

    See you both soon.

    Anyone who’s coming to the gtg have any parts they need or are looking to trade?
    I’m looking for a brake distribution block from a super duty Aka f450 so I can eliminate my rabs valve. I converted to hydroboost and never took it off the donor truck.

    I’d also like a front lower grill “4x4” or “diesel” emblem if anyone has it.

    I have a few random parts like tailshaft housing for a zf5 and the funny spacer for an automatic flywheel some dash bezels etc. if anyone is looking for any of that. I think I still have the auto gauge cluster too.
    Also have a box of random leftover bits and pieces.

    I’d also appreciate if any of the pros wanted to take a listen to or drive the truck. I feel like it’s light on power. But it’s the only turbo idi I’ve ever really driven so I haven’t had anything to compare it with.

    I need the address. And I'll be bringing sausage. Will there be a BBQ available to use, or should I bring one?
