    Actually it went great! We played some pool, drank some beer, and shot plenty of sh!t :) We planned our trip to the "Slab" for this sunday.. There are 4 K5's going on this trip.. should be a lot of fun because this will be my first. I will take plenty of pics for the website.

    It was great! Nice to meet local K5er's. I might even be able to go to the slab on Sunday, if I can convince my dad to let me[​IMG].

    Any club plans or future meetings arranged? I came by around 8:30, saw 4 K5's in the parking lot, and walked around the place but really had no way to recognize anyone so I went to eat. Came back by around 10:30 and it didn't look like anyone was left. I couldn't get there any sooner, D@##!%! I'll try to be on time for the next one...

    Damn, I am going to have to get those CK5 t-shirts made up, that would have helped in this situation. [​IMG]

    Re: How\'d it go in Austin?

    That would've been perfect! Actually, I just read the original thread and it looks like I might have been able to identify a few folks if I would've checked here earlier today. Was stuck in meetings all day and didn't get my usual fix of CO.K5 time [​IMG]! I guess I payed the price...

    Re: How\'d it go in Austin?

    Things wen't really well. It was great to finally put a face to the names on the post. Steve was a damn pool shark though !!! I'm not playing him anymore.
    Sorry about that Texan.. Where do you live in Round Rock? There is a sweet Bronze Blazer around the corner from my house.. I was wondering if it was yours.
    I'm definately up for more meetings..
    Rick87k5, Phyte, Sosamantx, Stoopalini, Blazerguy it was great to meet you all. Look forward to more gatherings and hope to see Texan there..
    Man, It was awesome to see all the K5's in the parking lot..
    The girl at the door asked what was going on with all the same trucks out there.. !!!
    I explained to her that we all met online at this site..
    She thought it was cool.
    Let's do it again sometime..
    Oh yeah.. Sosa !! Get that Blazer on the road !!!!!
    That way Phyte can wax it for you !! lol


    It's better to have it than to need it, than to need it and not have it !!!!

    Re: How\'d it go in Austin?

    <font color=blue>I think it was a blast, even though I was the only one that was Blazerless. You could say that we all have Steve to thank for this, since we all meet here. Thanks, Steve!! Funny though, I couldn't get anyone to play me for beers. Oh well, I had a blast, as well as my girlfriend. And I am sorry to all of the CK5'ers here, as I meant to take my camera, but I forgot all about it. DOH!!!!!! I could have posted some pics for all to see us at our 1st meeting, well maybe next time. Hey guys make sure you all take plenty of pics for us too see. As soon as I get my Nova running again, I'll start working on the Blazer. Later all, - Steve</font color=blue>

    And, yea ..... about the shootin' pool thing? I just have one thing to say

    [​IMG]

    Thanks Steve for making this all possible..
    Sosaman is right, without you and this site.. this never would have happened.
    Next time we'll have the camera on hand..
    Sure was sweet seeing all the Blazers in the parking lot!!

    Rocko,
    I have a navy/silver two-tone 89' with a 4" lift and 35x14.50x15 Micky T's and live off of Sam Bass road. I'm headed out in the morning with some friends for a Harley ride and won't make it back in time Sunday to go to the Slab. I'll try and catch up with y'all on the next get together. Have fun!...

    Re: How\'d it go in Austin?

    Well just to let everyone know that's going tomorrow to the slab.. My blazer is fine.. I worked out all the little things that were wrong with it.
    So..we're so on for tomorrow.
    Jason, I emailed you my address.. my house isn't hard to find at all.. Just look for all the Blazer's in the yard !!! lol .
    As of yesterday, the flood gates have been closed near the slab.. so don't think it'll be a problem wheelin.
    If it is.. we'll find a place to get dirty. Looks as though we have some bad weather headed our way tonight.

    See you all tomorrow..
    Cell phone number is on my profile.. adios muchachos !!!

    I had a great time, we definitely need to do this again sometime soon! Thanks for being our "Tour Guide"
    Rockosangel, your parents were great! Your mom had me cracking up [​IMG]

    No prob pulling you out, I'm sure you'll pay me back sometime [​IMG]

    Yea, Phyte's transfercase definitely needs to be looked at. I still say he did great with it only in 2-wheeel though, he kept up with us with no problems [​IMG]

    I try to drive my truck like it was meant to be driven, It was awesome climbing up that granite! Can't wauit to see the pics. Sorry I forgot my camera [​IMG] I promise next time I will be the one taking the pictures.

    See ya,

    Thomas.
