    It\'s time to start organizing the BC/AB GET-TOGETHER!!!!

    As most of you out there have read, I've been trying to organize a get-together at my rec property in Southeastern BC. Last time we discussed it it was looking like the Labour Day long weekend was gonna work for most of the folks who are interested(September 4-6th).

    I get 3 weeks of holidays a year, which I take during the summer. This means that I won't be around for much of August, so I'd like to get this figured out before I leave for holidays.

    If you are interested in coming out and meeting up with a bunch of fellow CK5ers in early September, please post up so I know what kind of numbers to expect. If you need more info, check out the other "get-together" post or ask away in this post.

    I'm in the process of scoping out a bunch of the forestry areas around me in hopes of planning some sort of trail run, but I don't take the K5 out there too often due to the ever-increasing price of gas. Should we make the weekend 4x4 or visit-oriented? Either way is good for me.......

    Anyhow, let's get this going. Post up and feel free to add any opinions you may have!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I should be there...

    Need directions and stuff though. Wheeling would be cool, even if it's just a scenic backroad.

    I'll be getting ahold of all the interested parties with directions and such sometime in the middle of August.

    As far as wheeling goes, there are plenty of old logging roads to explore. I'm also gonna check out an old road with an elevation gain of around 500 meters that leads to an abandoned minesite on the side of the mountain. I've heard rumors that you can rockcrawl from there to the top of the mountain. I'll be doing some exploratory research in a couple of weeks to see if it's feasible..... /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Would this be a family oriented thing? ie kids on dirt bikes and quads ? or just a k5 wheeling kind of thing?

    I have two little girls aged 3 and 7 who would love to have some company closer to their age. Here's a pic:

    I am definately, positively, maybe going to be there! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    As long as finances hold out, I will be there... maybe alone depending if Crystal can get any days off. I would like to do some wheeling, but as Rene said, even if its a scenic road or a cut line with some skeg on it I will be in!
    There is an extreme turck challenge on August 28th weekend, that I might be running in, so I may be able to run in Sherwood Park (Edmonton), then head to your place if you have room for a tent and want some early company! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Of course, depending on the serviceability of Thumper after Sherwood Park, I may need a garage and a parts store hehe.
    Did I mention I now have a Big Block?? /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif
    Umm, I guess I should ask... do I still get an invite if I have an S-10 body on my K5 frame?

    Later

    Hey Thumper, what's that extreme truck challenge. You're not talking about Lee's safari park, are you? I thought that was the 3rd week of August.We also got the invite. He sent me a video as well . or is this another event?

    Ya... Lees place. Is it the third week? I was thinking he said the 28th... ?
    Crap, that might change things for me. Its not a huge problem I suppose. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Anything is do-able! Hehe.
    Did I mention I have a big block? /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    I need to research your site too... for the S-10 swap. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
    Me and my club from here got some TV time in that video too. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif Not the challenge stuff tho. I didnt qualify last year with my tiny 35s, but I do this year!

    It looks like fun.
    The date shoudl be verified though as I am not 100% sure.
    You'll love that big block /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    The video wasn't just of the challenge though. I'll have to watch it again

    I am very dissapointed to say that I don't think I can make it /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif Now that I'm bartending the long weekends are our busiest times. I don't think the boss would be too happy if I took off for one. Maybe next time.

    But on a happier note I heard theres a rumor going around that someone got a big block. Anyone got any info on this /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    Hmm... well, you must be right. I just went and checked (yet again) and guess what I found! There IS a big block under my hood. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif
    So, I had to fire it up just to make sure I wasnt dreaming! Unfortunately I woke half the neighborhood... now they arent dreaming either! /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
    Im really gonna have to get an exhaust on there someday. Hehe.
