It's even cheaper in Austin. 3.09ish I think. What's the going rate in California at the moment?

Marlin and Christine completed the 42 hour road trip and have returned with pictures! The Crawler Truck is currently undergoing some drivetrain work and was unavailable to make the event, so these pictures are just of main camp. As always they were very warmly greeted by many familiar faces. In fact the first thing Marlin did when he arrived was repair the event organizer Perry's rusted carburetor! Marlin spent a lot of time fixing rigs and unfortunately no one offered him a ride to get some wheel'n/action photos. What's up with that Texans? Ha ha just kidding! Enjoy the pics from camp and looking forward to seeing everyone again in 2015!


Signs at the entrance to the private play area


Raffle items being sorted out


Here is Christine with some great MC Gift Certificates!


And here is Marlin doing what he loves, fix rigs! This rig belongs to event organizer Perry Lowery, and his carburetor was really rusted up. Just look at the all the rust on the needle! Marlin showed Perry how to clean it out and the two had a fun time turning wrenches.










Here are the "cabins". $50/night.
