Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
I was planning on tent camping as well, thanks for asking for clarification on this.I want to confirm that there is no spot where we can just set up a tent, we need to rent a specified primitive camping spot?
I ask this as the only person who used the primitive park last year. Had a good time, though.
Great looking area, great job to those involved with finding and scheduling this new location.
What are the chances we will have available power in the Swap Meet Area for those of us that usually set-up and stay in out location.
This looks to be about a 5hr journey for me, not too bad.
My main issue that is going to hold me back from making the trip, is my Truck situation.
My truck is getting old and wore down as I am, and with the high cost of trucks these days getting an affordable replacement is nearly impossible.
My truck can no longer handle the long trips that include large hills and Mountains anymore, mainly due to a possible cracked head issue...
The Truck not me...lol
After my Fathers passing in Dec. 2019, I did acquire his 92 Ford Dully Single Cab 350XLT with 7.3 idi, non turbo diesel.
This truck runs very well but started having an issue shutting down after its driven for about a mile, my fathers health got worse before he was ablt to track down issue. Possibilities issues so far is the Fuel Pump, Injector Pump, or possibly wiring issue along the Heads and Intake.
I sent it to a shop early last year to track down issue, but unfortunately they lost their Diesel mechanic so the truck never was diagnosed. I now have to learn about this truck and engine to fix it, myself. So far this truck is best chance for me making the rally, if the high Desile Fuel Prices dont become an issue.
You can always drive the Ford 350 and see if anyone at the rally can look at it. I hear tell the rally has people that know things.
I'm in Memphis with trucks and lowboys. Even if I'm not around there are driversA little early I suppose but is anyone from Texas or surrounding states planning on going? Think we are shifting to LOW-T and trailer with recovery vehicles. If the deuce seems questionable will definitely take the Rhino and 1 recovery vehicle. Trails are too awesome to pass up a little play time. Hope to have registration done next week. Lots of pm to do before the trip. Retrieving the M105 tomorrow. Would love to convoy with others if possible.

I'd like to go, but it would be more drive time than rally time for me. 50 mph in the M1078 all the way there will take a while. Hmm.
