I'll be there on Friday @ 5:30 with my 9 year old son. We are camping both nights. I'll bring some firewood.

See you there!

I will be there on Saturday AM along with a few of my friends with vehicles. We will NOT be camping over night. And we will wheel Saturday only. See you then.

Guess I will be up Saturday AM with my crew and Terminus M1009 and staying home Friday to eat supper with my family. Saves me a lot of work. Last time I came up I had help and steak after cutting and unloading the wood. You drive a 2 1/2 ton truck and I drive an M1009. Who could haul more wood? I will not be up Friday. Saturday AM only. A man must have a meal after working all day. Peace man have a great day. :)

I plan on coming friday before dark and camping until sunday. Probably bring the 5 ton again and my daughter. I sent the date to John that came up last time with a 5 ton that also lives in Delaware hopefully we can convoy up.

I put this rally on the calendar but I still have to run it by the boss! I also still need to replace my axle boots so I can wheel the truck. The one tore on the way to the spring rally so I didn't take it wheeling.
Hopefully the weather is better than the spring rally!

Haha, the one trip I decide to take the welder out of the maintenance truck. Sometimes ya never need something until you don't have it...
I can see you packing for the trip:
welder or microwave?
Heating hot pockets is easier with the microwave than with a welder, so I'll bring the microwave.

Can't make this ride, headed to another park with jeeps that weekend.

i am getting to drive lots of MVs, including WW2 armor.

have a great time.
