    Hey Branndon, thanks for putting it all together. Had a great time, wonderful group of folks. And amazingly, it wasn't my truck that needed to be wrenched upon. A good day.

    Thanks again!:waytogo:

    Wish you coulda been there. Would have been fun to meet you.

    You'd think there wouldn't be much need for wrenching in a parking lot... one of the guy's (not a member yet) steering box was pretty much broken off the frame, the whole thing was moving up and down over an inch when he turned the wheel, which he could only really do to the left.:eek1: Frame was broken too, of course.

    So, the guys tried to fix it enough for him to get home - only a few miles away so wouldn't have been too bad except for the no wheel turning part... the whole thing was too trashed and unsafe so he wound up calling for a tow.

    Looks like he broke it jumpin the rig. He had video of it on his phone. Pretty cool to watch. Blazers don't fly well. Pretty cool rig tho. Actually the guys who brought theirs - all of them were cool, capable rigs. Was fun to see them.

    I drove 1.5 hours to pick up The Kid today and 30 minutes to get there. I made it to Wier canyon off the freeway and almost to the gate when my wife call and told me she had an accident at the house and needed me there right away. so after toll roading it home over the hill I spent the day watching moovies on the couch. almost 3 hours driving for Nada. Sory I missed you all.

    ouch, that really sucks! Hope everything is alright at home. If you ever want to drive back out here to hang out some time. My pool is open, and I love to grill burgers.

    Looks like it was a good time. I'm bummed I missed it. I tried my best to get out of work but it ended up being a long day and I didn't get home until just after 6:30(and thats starting at 7am:crazy:) Maybe towards the end of summer we can work out another one along the lines of what Branndon said...pool party/bbq.

    hay Branndon, thanks for putting this thing together. I had a good time and it was good to meet all who showed up. to bad everyone else who would have liked to have shown up could not make it, would have been cool to meet you too. maybe next time. hated to have to bail when we did but we had a long drive ahead of us. the park was awesome. my boy had fun playin on all the kid stuff to play on too. I would be cool with a annual BBQ or something. could do it in a few different places, or that park is fine too. obviously there has to be a wheeling BBQ trip sometime too. :D

    Ooops, sorry I'm late, was emptying my front axle today.
    Good outing. This is how regional clubs get started.
    I don't know of any L.A. Basin GM Fullsize clubs. Maybe we could loosely organize.:thinking: For barn raisings and that sort of stuff.:haha:

    Branndon, thanks for setting it up. The family and I had a blast. That was a very nice park. The kids want to go back. It was great meeting everyone that went. IT was a very friendly gathering if that makes sense. It was great meeting a lot of people that I just see pictures of on the site. Looking forward to next time. Thanks again to everyone.

    p.s. It's great to finally put some faces to some posts by people you know.
