    I'm about 2.5 hours North of you in MA. We are having a truck pull on the 26th of July if you are interested. I could probably find you plenty of brewskies, and a place to crash if you are interested and willing to drive. PM me and let me know. Also I will be in CT (farther north in East Windsor) that morning if you want to meet and follow me up.

    I'm going on vacation Friday of this week and next week. I will be back on the 26th of July. On the 27th of July I will be heading to Mass for a 4x4 hill climb, you are more than welcome to tag along. I also have plenty of work to do on my Blazer, including tearing apart my donor truck. I also have plenty of beer in the fridge, or should I say Kegalator. I'm about 45 min to an hour from Danbury.

    A truck pull eh! /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    Thanks for the invite, Is that like a tractor pull I might have seen on TV? Is there other events going on at the same place or mainly a truck pull? Any more info on the event, like a web site, <font color="red"> never mind, just checked out your link to http://www.truckpulls.com ...</font> or is it a low key kind of deal.

    At 2.5 hours away I might just be interested!

    Thanks,
    Prescott

    Saturday the 26th morning I am headed to CT for Whirlyball ( www.whirlyball.com ), then to the truck pulls, then to a party. Sunday I am headed to the Quaboag rider's hill-climb. I will check with NoAngel, if you want you should be able to crash at her place Saturday night, that way if you do come Saturday, you do not have to worry about heading back too soon. Let me know, my cell is (413) 427-5269.

    Hey if you're stayin till Aug. 30th, I'm getting my D44 and 14Bff sometime next week. I'm about 1.5 hrs away from you, in Agawam, Ma. If you want, you could come wrench w/ me so I don't have to bust my back doing it solo. BTW I'll have 4.88 gears, a detroit and 36" swampers, similar to what you're running /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif I also have to put my flowmaster exhaust in, put my valve covers back on, plugs, wires, cap/rotor and oil change, but most of that will be done tomorrow or this weekend. Lookin foreward to some company /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif If not, enjoy your stay in the east coast. -Rob-

    My sister is going back to Cali on August 4th. I have work to do on my own rigs, but would be willing to meet and give you a hand after that date. I'm sure NoAngel wouldn't mind watching, wrenching, learning as well. Let me know.
    Are you planning to go to the Hillclimbs on Sunday?
    77 Mud Buddy, NoAngel, and I are going to my clubs truck pulls on Saturday and then to the hillclimbs on Sunday. If you need a ride or want to join us, give my cell a call 413 427-5269 (leave a message as I don't alway hear it while mowing).

    As stated in Leadfoot's post, I'm going to be busy this weekend with the truck pull and hill climb. Besides that I am pretty much available. You gonna make the tuck pull / hill climb?

    I am more than willing to give you a hand with you axle stuff. You say you are probably going to get the axles next week? So next weekend you'll be wrenchin? That sounds good to me. I guess PM me or call me to let me know when? where? and what kind of beer you drink.

    I'll hopefully have my axles by Thursday /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif The only reason I have to wait so long is because I'll have nobody to help unload them when I get em home until then. I'm going to the hill climb but I'm not too sure about the truck pull... Where's the truck pull happening so I can get directions? Oh and about the beer, root beer is all I'm allowed at the moment since I'm 19 /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif But there's a package store down the street so your mouth won't be dry if you decide to come help! I'll try and call everyone later today, if I remember. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    No biggie, I didn't have my hopes up, I enjoy working by myself. I always feel like I've accomplished more when I don't have help. If I do by chance need help I'll just post up again /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif Maybe I'll see you Sunday at the hill climbs /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I would like to thank 77 MUD BUDDY for helping me remove my 3/4 ton axles from my pink beauty. Prescott is the nicest guy and a great worker. I couldn't have done it without him. Thanks again.
