New guy here from Elkhart. Just saw grimor's post on the tbss forum this morning regarding this meet. Guess I am a little late for the festivities so I joined this forum in hopes to make it to next years meet if it will be held near Elkhart again.

Glad you made it back safe and sound. Have all our other long-distance travelers checked in? OH? PA? IL?

(ok - Illinois isn't 'far' from Indiana, but didn't want to leave anyone out) :biggrin:

@rizzo20 was the next farthest out in PA I believe. I'm sure he made it OK.

Hope the baby is better and you all are caught up on sleep.

I still can't find the FB page - must be hidden to non-members. Can someone invite me?

Thnaks, Larry. It doesn't show any content, just a message about nothing there or being visible to a group I'm not in. I think I need to be invited.

It looks like I can't add you since it is marked private and past.

Before last pic, our hosts ( @Grimor and his handler)

Last pic, (sitting) @Grimor , @rizzo20 , me, @Reprise

Some work was done by @Matt installing a panhard bar drop bracket he acquired (first pic) and also the tuned PCM I brought.

Great people, food, drinks and conversations all around. I was blown away by some of the trucks, especially the SS turned 4x4, the doorless TB and the absolutely clean Denali.

A shame i had to to miss it this year. Unfortunately there was some communication issues. I told they wife we were going then the day came and she pulled "we never discussed if we were going." "false, i said we were going" and well, it wasn't worth the fight as she had some other thing already planned. It's great to see a bunch of newer people showing up, but also sucks that allot fo teh older folks don't come around anymore :/

AJ (Hotness<~ screen name, he isn't that hot) and i were discussing over the last weekend maybe doing a chicago one and trying really hard to get some of the OG people out. We shall see if that goes anywhere.

Great photos, Grimor puts on a good show.

Why are you wearing your shirt backwards?

No, I wasn't that drunk. That is a ver.1 shirt. My new shirt I had a Jello shot incident the night before and was still wet from washing. Damn Jello shots!

That first one I wound up sucking out the back end it was so plugged up. Then the second one, of course, just squirted on its own. They were still oh-so-good though :tequila:

I'm still looking for maple-infused whiskey...and have lately developed a strange hankering for some...apple pie :tequila:

Flavored booze - get buzzed & satisfy your sweet tooth. Win-win, in my book!

My problem would be remembering to maintain a slow 'sip', and resist the urge to drink it like Gatorade. That would be a problem...or not -- depending on your view... :biggrin:

You should have heard @Grimor explaining to @Mooseman how to do the syringe jello shot...suck the tip, jiggle the shaft and cup it! :crackup:

Funnier than hell "reading" these in your respective accents. :Lager Louts:

Jim Beam Maple is not as sweet but is a suitable substitute for your addiction.

I found a jar of Apple Pie at Wally World on the way home. So does this make me a moonshine runner?

What accent? You guys had trouble with my absence of one :biggrin:

It's theoretically possible to drive across the arctic in winter. Might get stuck a few times unless you add some tracks to the TB. Helluva mod!

Hey I've already got this planned

Black lines represent road trips, the red lines represent boat trips. All in all a 25,000 KM trip.

Sure would beat my pitiful 2800km :biggrin:
