    I'll have to check with my family and make sure nothing else is going on. Also will depend on if I find a 14 bolt and get gears installed and so forth before then. Maybe teh 23rd or 30th would give me a little more time for the project.

    How about the 30th then. Will that give your son enough time to recover? Sorry but I'm gonna need as much time as possible to get a new rear end and dshaft made up and installed.

    Aren't you in So Cal....you'd have a long drive anyhow to make this pre-run. If anything you should go in July to the big one with all the Blazers/Jimmys.... [​IMG]

    O.K. I'm in for the 30th of June. That means a couple of hard weeks to get a 14 bolt and install gears and modify driveline, etc,etc,etc!

    Why not try this. If you live near someone that cannot make it do to a broken truck, no gas money, etc. then why not let them ride shotgun? For anyone that cannot make it for those type of reasons, there should be someone nearby to give you a ride so at least you can join in on the trail ride and help prepare the trails (if needed) for the BlazerFest.

    Just my $.02

    All it cost is the $6.00 a night camping fee and $4.00 a day park
    wheelin fee. We are getting all kinds of free stuff from companys to give out. Nothing is
    really planned but to go wheelin and have a good time. I am going out to try and shoot a
    pig a week before for a b-que, It is just to have a good time campin and wheelin and
    meet each other......Dan

    Do you have to have a rig to go? I might be able to go. I might have my Blazer or not if I drive my car just to take pics, spot and meet folks. Depends on if I can buy the gas for it. So would that matter? Thanks......

    Nope just come. I am riding with somebody else on the more serious runs. I do not now who yet. Hunting season is coming up and I still only have my 10 bolts. I can't afford to tear up my rig right now. Dan

    Ok...I think I can make it to the July event. Don't count me in for June 30th. My friend is moving and we just planned a goodbye party for him. Happened to be for that day. But works out since I can't pay for gas to do both. I would have had to pick anyhow and the July run would be better anyhow.... I have 10bolts so I won't be doing anything big wheeling. Last thing I need is the toothpick to snap and I have to push my ride home...I'll also bring my camera and take shots. Sounds like a fun time!

    wow. all this talk of sissy ten-bolts has me scared. i think of all the times my truck made it, when i guess it shoulda broke! is everyone gonna ride with steve or dave?

    i gotta tell y'all, i've never personally seen a 10 bolt grenade. i know they do, but it seems like they're suddenly the outcast.
    the blazer is built to go off-road. wheel smart, and you won't thrash your truck. drive like a drunken teenager, and you could destroy grim's ride, or shawn's, or dep-dogs.

    everybody, bring your trucks. wheel safely, and you'll drive them home. when we get to the crazy parts, hop in someone else's rig, and have fun watching them. or walk ahead and take pictures.
    just don't let the fear of carnage ruin your weekend.
