    One member flipped in tank trap today after most everyone was gone. There is video, no injuries.

    It was flipping A-1 /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gifhot during the day, so there was more water being drank than beer. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Wheeling in the 4WOR Super Duty complete with leather seats and A/C is strait up high dawg pimp'in. Just be prepared to Dukes of Hazzard it if you're riding shotgun, the door mechanism is all f'ed up. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Not only is riding in the ORD buggy fun and doesn't beat y'all to pieces, Stephen Watson is one of the nicest guys on this planet.

    No official vehicle count yet, but 50 should be in the neighborhood.

    Kudos to RyanB and GoKarterGo for doing their part in repairing the riffs between the US and Germany with the quick lessons to the German tourists that showed up on Friday. There was video taken and hopefully we will have a link in the future /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    It was /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif hot!!!!!!!

    Last, but not least. It doesn't matter how stock you are, a tow strap is always a good thing to pack. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Isn't the suspension on that thing just freakin' amazing? It's so soft that the front bumper rises several inches when he just shifts from neutral to drive. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif And yep, Stephen is one incredibly nice guy! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yup. I rode with him for a couple hours following willyswanter around the hills. Kind of sucked that they had to depend on me to navigate since I get lost in a paper sack. That truck get's a triple wide approval from me. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Prior experience really clued me in on what the ride was like, just had to do it so I could say I did it. Unfortunately I had to go tell Frizzlefry his truck rides like a rock afterwards /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Hey, my truck is 3 feet longer and I didn't hit a tree at least /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif That was one of the biggest high points of my whole trip, just crusing with him and you behind me through the hills /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Oh and I must admit that Doc Watson is a great guy, I spent alot of the day with him yesterday and today, he even left his extinguisher with Tony when he left in case there were any problems /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. And in light of my recent tie-rod re-arranging my credit card numbers are getting faxed to the good doctor again /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yup, but he's not paying the repair bills for the damage /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. Of course they could at least fix the passenger's door. That would of been a good pic when I had to exit ala Dukes of Hazzard.

    Hey now!!!!! I was having to practice fuel conservation since I didn't want to have to stop 20 miles from home to put in 3 gallons just to make it home. Got home just under 1/8th of a tank. And besides, I didn't have to ride with Mike to and from Hollister /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Well I bent up my tie-rod and Dan (gokartergo) was nice enough to give me his spare (that he even needed).

    I then went to Pismo and had dinner with Tori and a friend that goes to Cal Poly SOL...

    Then went tooling around in the dunes with Matt (baby blue). The Carnage was good just like always /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif. He broke a front half shaft as well as an ear off of the axle housing of his 96 3500 GMC.

    IFS Sucks!
