Awesome next year LORD....
We're gonna hold you to this, David! In your retirement, we expect you to be driving your M1031 maintenance truck back and forth to all these rallies...with your sons in tow! :)

I reckon No.2Diesel is working, catching up on the few days he had to take off work. He didn't get back until Monday night, so he missed 2 days of work. I'm sure he'll post the pics when he gets a chance.

RE: More RC 2008 . . .

Thanks for the pics Andy! I don't understand why every time I see pics I'm supposed to be in, I only see some old, fat, bald guy? Anyways...that was one steep downhill by the power lines. When we got out of the trucks afterwards, it sounded like someone pulled a cork out of a wine bottle when I stood up! Talk about your "pucker factor"!

Last year was my first visit. I think it was the second year SSers got together there.

The driving force behind the rally is trail driving and friendship. The trails are rocky and often wet. If my memory is correct, we assembled there late AM, got the rudiments of a camp set up, stripped all the bows, seat racks etc out of the deuces and went for a ride. On Saturday, there was an AM run followed by a lunch break and a more challenging PM ride.

During the weekend there were deuces, 5-tons, an M1009, an M1008, an M37 and an early jeep.

There was no planned swap meet as such but some horse trading was done. Since more of us know each other now I'd guess there'll be more of that this year.

I'm kind of up in the air as to what you mean by "extras" but if you are asking if there are any services more sophisticated than a porta-potty then, no there are no extras.

Folks pitched tents or slept in their trucks. Everybody did their own thing for chow although there was some communal cooking.

Based on headcount and interest, I'd be willing to bring a smoker and BBQ some critter parts.

There's a 2009 thread you may want to subscribe to.
