i would imagine to participate. you would have to either have your rig transported there separately, or drive someone else's truck right?. 

I mean if this is an offer, sure i will fly down and drive the marlin crawler truck anyplace you want lol...

We've flown Marlin, CJ, and Angelo to Texas events on three different occasions, and CJ to a Hawaii event. It's very easy to find an open seat, especially if your first name is Marlin :yesnod:

We've also got two Canadian events that we'd love to attend but it would be more cost effective to fly than to drive or trailer a rig all the way up there... Alberta for instance.

I've not had this pleasure yet, but maybe someday :)

It didn't start out that I was flying to go wheeling but it ended up that way. I flew in to Palm Springs from Phoenix on a Thurs when my mother in law went into the hospital, went out to Johnson Valley hitched a ride with some of my CA club members who happened to be there that weekend for the Tinbenders Jamboree and went back that Tues after the meeting with the doctor. I chatted with Mike and Marlin at the event and Mike gave me and my son some swag.

If Mike said I had a seat or got to drive one of their crawlers, I'd do it.   :smokin: 

But, I'd at least try to drive my rig there first, cause I love road trips. 




And Mike, the next time I'm down there, I'll fetch pizzas with Marlin's truck.  You know I'd do it!  Cause you guys are the best!!  :thumbs:

Cool story RS, glad we got rid of that Mike character. Not only did he have the same name as me but he was always giving stuff away to people!
