Wish I could make this one work. Labor day is a difficult one for me with the kids and wife starting up school. I'll sit in mine and my vroom vroom noises over the weekend.

I have already setup an album where I will be placing my pictures.
I will be uploading some immediately, as I take them, so keep checking back throughout the weekend.

Both of our buggys are in the trailer and ready to go. Got the rail inspected yesterday and the young guys were playing rock paper scissors to see which one was going to do the inspection drive.

Ken would you like to take the rail for a test drive????

Appreciate the offer yoboy, but I guess having a reliable buggy has spoiled me. I prefer car's I don't have too push.

Ken, how did you get the nickname Coilman???? And the only time the rail has had an issue was when you took it for a spin at the previous round up....umm.....

Do we need to bring back some of those pictures from round up 1.....

See you guys on Friday. It's going to be a great weekend.

I didn't recall until Greg reminded me with this picture... But I believe I got the nickname, because I had to show EVERYONE where the coil was...

After a few years of knowing you Mr Blair, I'm pretty sure that was a calculated setup!

Apparently so... thanks Greg. So nice of you to have these so readily available.

Susan says she thinks we all start to salivate when someone breaks down.
Must fix. Gather around. More hands fix faster.

I have been on pens and needles. After getting the hydraulic clutch installed, there was still a problem. We dropped the engine last week and discovered the through-out bearing was shelled. It was very discouraging to have the engine laying on the ground 1 week before the rally. But, we have made good progress. The engine is now ready to start. I am back to "Can't Wait for Friday Morning". Pam and I are very ready for the weekend. We should get there late Friday afternoon.

Hey guys,
Susan and I are going to have to beg out of the RoundUp. We need to go to a family thing up north.
So, everyone have a great time and be safe. We'll miss y'all.

Oh and Cory, there's a shot of the rubber chicken award in my Photobucket account....

Here's Cory's picture with the rubber chicken from Greg's Classic pics.

Just in case anyone forgets....there is still one rubber chicken available for anyone who qualifies. ;-)

And of course there's always Bryans award aka "Doom Buggy Award" up for grabs at the RU also..

I had a "Rubber Chicken" picuture just like that which I couldn't find. Thanks Yoboy.

Here's the award Bryan has held since 2008 and I know he is anxious to pass it on. So, if you see him hanging around your engine, BEWARE.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend and gathering. I hope to someday be able to tag along.

I'll have to settle for playing with my other black fiberglass toy this weekend.
