    To those of you I\'m meeting this weekend...

    Here is my latest so-called revised schedule.

    Considering it's 11pm Friday night and I still havent left yet, I'm expecting to be late. To try and remedy this, so that I don't throw off all the plans I made... I am reversing the course of my trip.

    Most likely, I'll leave in the a.m. but head towards Seattle first. I was going to look at some rims that Poohbair had, and drop off a T-case for 4xrick. Then, I'll head south... find my way to I-5, and get to the Vancouver area. I'd expect this to be late Saturday if I am on time. I need to drop off a frame for jekbrown, meet up with powermad, muddytazz and mudhog.

    Then, once all my parts are taken care of, I'll head down to Lincoln City to visit my aunt who's 84 years old.

    I had planned to do the visit first, then parts, but I'll get the parts out of the way first so that if my visit goes longer, It won't affect everyone else.

    I should have everyone's phone numbers... so I'll try to be contacting you when I get near.

    I'll try to check on here again before I leave.

    Alan if ya want to wait till ya are headed back north that would be okay.
    Or else you are gonna have to head north again and then head back down I5. About 45 minutes each way.
    But the engine is on the ground and ready to go.

    Re: To those of you I\'m meeting this weekend...

    Not to make matters complex... but is there a way to maybe just meet you at your house Saturday evening (or where the motor is) on my way South. I know you probably don't get home till 7 or so, but I doubt I'll be through till then or later anyway.

    After going to visit my aunt, I'll probably head out of Portland eastbound.

    Re: To those of you I\'m meeting this weekend...

    That would work for me.
    I should be home around 6:30
    Give me a call when ya go by Castle Rock about exit 49.
    Yer gonna take exit 36 into Longveiw headed for HWY 30.
    Just follow yer nose and ya can't miss it. LOL
    There is a rest area just before Casle Rock, call me and I'll fill ya in on all the details and such.

    Alright, once I find my way to that area, I'll give you a call. What time is too late to call, if I'm running really late?

    Broke out the taillights was all from dragging over the rocks lining the drive. By the time I got back to Ron's house there was not much left of them.
