Speaking of being in a gifty mood, if anyone is in need of anything mechanical or electrical for an AD truck, let me know. I have a huge storage shed full of too much stuff which needs someone else's shed to be stored in, or better yet, be used on someone's truck.
Let me know and I'll load it up into Sweat Pea"s bed and bring it.

Here is just something I need to mention so everyone is aware. It will be obvious to most of you when you see the place but I must say it anyway. Our farm (the fields) is rented to the local farmer and I have told him what is happening this weekend. We can ride the dirt roads on the farm but STAY OUT OF THE FIELDS.We can hug the edges of the dirt road to pass someone if necessary but try to avoid the crops. The farmer is a nice young man and he is currently renting the old farm house from my brother so everyone may get to meet him. My two brothers, one cousin, and I own the entire farm so we have the entire place to enjoy this weekend. The main thing is to stay on the roads and out of the crops so we don't interfere with the farmer's bottom line.......

It is great sadness, that I won’t be able to make the trek south after all! cry
My lovely wife, decided to allow her Gallbladder to fail. She is scheduled for surgery this Friday! Unless, it really fails and becomes an emergency, then surgery would be moved up. Would it be wrong of me to wish for the latter?

Good trucks are everywhere... good wives are not. Stay Home. We understand.

Don -- If you come to Wrenchfest, would you bring the Stovebolt EZUp with you? HQ needs it this season. smile

Sorry John, I will not be at the WrenchFest this year. But I also don't have the Stovebolt Awning anymore.
It was turned over to Tuts and Alvin of the Southern Bolter's 2 years ago.
Since the MBA Roundup is held at Mongo's Garage now, we did not need it to show who we are.
Tut's and Alvin should have it set up for this years Southern Jamboree in Townsend Tennessee.
Reservations are made for Vicki and I to be there the first weekend in June.

I know you and your Boyz will miss me this coming weekend, but, I will not be attending.
Tip a cold one or two for me!
Heads Up? Tim Down Under may be back in the states again this summer?

Somehow some way I will be there but at this point, that is the closest thing to an ETA I got. At work at 4am yesterday and 5 this morning so we will see how the next couple of days goes.
Jim Schmidt, sorry to hear about your wife. Take good care of her.
Jim Christian, I am still planning on bringing the standard Winchester fare if needed. And Sweet, lots of smaiches......

Hey Jim,

Do you have room for one more truck? I'd like to come on Friday or Saturday, as I will be tearing down Hambone's overdrive transmission and will be spending a few hours on that task. I'm going to do enough prep work such as making a gasket and a special part made by Grigg to break it down and put it back together. I can bring a couple saw horses and a half sheet of plywood for a table to work on. The weather looks really good so I would prefer doing it outside, maybe under a tree. Don't bother with shop space, I really want to do it outside as it is a neat thing that may attract a bit of attention so outside would be better suited for viewers as well.

I won't impose on you for the generous offer to stay over as I will be travelling back home at the end of the day.

Thanks much Jim!
