SqWADoosh [04:19 PM]: *sigh* I guess Chris is right and I just need to wait until I'm in a place where I have a tow rig and trailer before I get this caliber of truck
Mudder [08:28 PM]:   not try to be a jerk, but are you serious bestgen?
Prismo [06:11 PM]:   Done, time to relax or as Bestgen says....FREEDOM!

I have sqwadoosh level confidence it at least two or three of the other trucks showing up.
Jim from work has been talking about this event since the last rookie run. He will be there come hell or high water.
Young Jesse has not been out since the last tahuya rookie run and is chomping at the bit to wheel again.
I also feel very confident in 92 showing up as he has promised. He put a lot of work into that pile. I know he wants to get out and use it.
