    Kenny can you keep your eyes open for some 33x12.5x15 BFG M/T's while you are at the swap meet? If you need a few dollars in advance let me know and I can either PayPal or send you a M.O. I will be going to Seattle later this month and can swing by and pick them up if you find any.

    Basically, yes... but all the good deals are at the PIR track ;) Why do you think they call it the biggest swap meet on the West Coast? It runs 4 days total, Thur-Sun so you have plenty of time to look at everything.

    looks like I'll be driving to work on thursday and friday. Everytime there is a big event at Expo or PIR I get hosed because asshats park in the park-n-ride train parking lot so there is no room for us poor schleps that are just trying to get to work. Sigh. :(

    Our booth #'s are 6080-6082 and it all started today... probably the only nice day for the whole weekend from the sounds of it.

    from what I have heard, friday is gonna be rainy... and maybe saturday morning too... but saturday and most of sunday is supposed to be not very wet..

    I can't call in sick at my job right now... the boss is sick... and when 1 person is gone, the other 2 gotta be there, or one guy is gonna get stuck working 17 hours straight.. doh!

    "funny" thing is... the boss called on tuesday morning saying that he had "walking pnemonia" and is on bed rest for 4 days (convenient how that goes all the way to the weekend!). I looked up walking pnemonia. Official definition...

    :rolleyes:

    Hey ok! I would have actually gone for that (a litle to late now probly) But the only thing i could think of that i wanted was a warn classic winch bumper for the 78 but it would be like a needle in a haystack trying to find it.
