    Yep, the Carpal Tunnel was here around 11:30 p.m. to visit. He pulled up in tRusty and we chatted until he left around 2:00 a.m. Very cool and great guy!

    For those who dont know: Rene is from Surrey, BC, Canada on his way to Round Rock, Texas to pick up an 82 Blazer from rocko. He left Thursday morning and is visiting with a few other members along the way. He will be stopping by again possibly on Sunday morning. Cant wait to see him again! [​IMG]

    Yea, Rene is a great guy. I talked to him on the phone Thursday night around 10pm, and he was already in Utah. He's making good time...driving almost 24 hours a day. His goal is BC, Canada to Texas in about 2 1/2 days. It's around 2,500 miles. He's gonna have a sore butt!! The '82 he's picking up from Rocko will become tRusty v2.0. The original tRusty is towing it home to Surrey.

    Still awaiting Rene's arrival...It's 10:25am. He said his estimate should have put him here in Round Rock around 10am to 12pm.
    Will keep everyone posted.

    Re: Rene stopped by my place tonight!!!

    I was VERY SURPRISED last night when he showed up!!! [​IMG] All week he was telling me he was going to stop here on the way back so I could see his "new" blazer. LOL! He said he tried calling from Hays, but the line was busy! LOL! I was in the chat room! [​IMG] So he took a chance of coming over here to see if I might be awake. I sure was, and boy, was I surprised to see tRusty outside the window!!! [​IMG]

    Re: Rene stopped by my place tonight!!!

    That is really cool. And a ton of driving. I don't even know if I'd want to do 2500 miles in my daily driver....not evennnnn the K5. I think I'd be hearing the hum of Flowmasters for about a month if I did that. Hey is tRusty going through Wichita??? It would be cool to see him.

    Re: Rene stopped by my place tonight!!!

    Yeah, he went thru Wichita last night. I sent him there to I-135 from here by going on Highway 14 to Hutchinson and then on Highway 96 to Wichita. He probably saved about 45 minutes of road time rather than going on I-70 to K-135 and then down to you. Why not go stand somewhere along side the interstate with a big sign "hey tRusty, stop here" and just wait for him? LOL! [​IMG]

    Nothing I like better then starting out on the open road in search of an adventure. Never realized Rene lived so close. Spend a lot of time in BC searching their salvage yards for parts, much cheaper then in US with exchange rate figured in.
    Wish him luck and I may have to look him up when he returns, gotta see his new find.

    I'll prolly have to pass on that sign idea. lol Anyways I wish I would've known about his little trip ahead of time. Hell, I'd buy him an extra value meal or something on his way back if I knew what time he was rollin' through. lmao

    Yeah, I had my pants on!!! [​IMG] We even got in the chat room last night and chatted with some members. He told everybody I had my pants on too. [​IMG]
    When he got here, he surprised me cuz he told me earlier he was stopping by here on the way back home. I told Muddin of the sign I was going to hang in the yard to welcome him home. I got a piece of plywood and spray painted "Boyce Equipment" on it. Just so he would know he found the right place! LOL! But he showed up early! I am still going to put it out tomorrow morning for him to see when he gets back here again!!! [​IMG]
