I have been informed that due to recent mechanical issues to the transfer case, the big 900 series will not be making it this weekend.

Hey CDub, if you still want to go, both of our trucks have an empty seat. This offer goes out to anyone else as well. If you wan't to ride shotgun, just let me know!

Thats too bad. You guys should pick the truck up and drive back to RC. We could help you with maintenance and when you drive home you could convoy and not worry about regs, plates, or breakdowns.

That's no excuse spentshell. You had months to plan this, and you can pick the truck up anytime. HOWEVER, like No.2Diesel said, you can pick the truck up, and en route back, stop off at Rausch Creek and have some fun for a couple days!

Man, the MI people and the GA people had huge rallys, what we gotta do to get more NE folks onboard RC? Give away cash prizes for showing up? Bring Hooters girls? [thumbzup]

Hi,

I guess geography plays a role in the use of one's MV. The Southerners and Midwesterners seem to ACTUALLY WANT TO USE THEIR MVs and not just for parades and sunny Sunday afternoons. :)

-----------------------------------------------------

I'm actually very happy and pleased with the small group that has shown interest in learning about their MVs and operating them where they were designed to be operated. For this inaugural event, maybe its a good thing to be small so that everything goes smoothly. I am in no way slighted at those who can't make it do to mechanical issues. I guess Maddawg is right, we need to raffle off a gold bar from the Federal Reserve to get more people to show up next year :p

Now you are talking. I will offroad for Hooters Girls! This is why I decided not to drive down to Ga. for Clinto's rally. I kept hearing about strippers, but was rather disappointed when that did not come together. I did not even see a stripper pole in any of the rally pics :cry:

Anyways it looks like I have off for Sat/Sun, and am still working on Friday. I really wish you guys had had the dates up earlier, so that I could have gotten the days off :wink:

Sorry to let you all down.....but count me in for next year. I'd really like to mud up Sharleen's tires a bit.

I'm getting "old," at 64, but I figure I could get at least 3 or 4 of the Hooter's girls if I had the gold bar! ;)

RE: Re: RE: RAUSCHCREEK FINAL CONVOY INFO

In the Iditarod Dogsled Race held in Alaska each year, there is a "Red Lantern Award" to the last musher to cross the fnish line. I got home from Rausch Creek today at 3:15 PM and am going to claim that honor until someone else proves they got home even later. (I had cooling system issues which slowed the return on Sunday and something shook the connections for ONLY my headllights loose while on the trail, so I camped out in a truck stop at MM 291 - Tom's Brook last night.)

More tomorrow. I'm off to work. I had a blast.
