    A buddy of mine moved back home from Tucson and needs to go back to flat-tow his K10 back home.
    He asked me if I wanted to go with him to help with the driving duties.
    I'm planning to go with him on my vacation time, which is during the 13th thru the 28th. Don't know which day we will leave yet.
    I'm planning to stop and see Bill (45acp) at his shop, A-Tron, and visit with him.

    Anybody else in town or around wanna do a quick stop and visit? /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Would love to meet with you, Boss!! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    Let me see about what date(s) my buddy and I plan to come down. If we can do the trip during the week you will be there, we can find you or arrange some place to meet. My friend just moved back home after living there for about 7 years, so he knows his way around the town. /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    I'll most likely be out of state much of July, but if I'm in AZ, maybe we can meet up...

    Chuong, Wes and his friend are going to meet me at my shop and go out for some mexican food and beer. Since you are going to play golf in Greenvalley you should try to meet us also. Let us know your plans and we'll make it work. Bill <font color="red"> </font color>

    Hey Wes and Bill, I'm always up for Mexican food and beer! And I'm in Tucson. Any favorite resturaunts? El Torero is about the best as far as I'm concerned. Maybe some trails will be opened for wheeling if you have a day.

    We will be in town for a day and stay overnight to get back on the road and back home. So, taking an off road excursion is ruled out for now. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif

    We are driving a newer Dodge short bed 4x4 for the trip. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    Well, one day is about ALL you wanna spend here! The official temp is taken 12 feet off of the ground and in the shade. I work for Tucson Electric and at 8 am we called our systems office map room and got the real temp of 108 degrees!! But it's a "dry heat"!

    I can handle a dry heat (I think /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif) better than a wet heat which we have all the time. /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    Ahh, Green Valley, that's the town!

    Well, it's more like, Learning how to play golf over there...I'm horrible! It's fun though...

    Anyhow, I would love to meet up with you guys for some beers and El Mexicano food! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif Should be fun. Let me know which day yall are planning to meet up. I'm flying out there on Thursday, July 11, and I think I will be arriving late evening on Thursday. Thurs. is probably out, but whenever after that I guess. This is more of my g/f's trip, so she has a bunch of stuff planned, but I'm sure if I know ahead of time, then we can work this into the plans... /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
    Wes, we've talked a lot over the net in the past, would really be cool to finally meet face to face /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Bill, my vote for food is El Torero, great food, ice cold beer and they don't stop bringing it until you tell them to!
