10 hours isn't bad.. just gotta get the truck ready, but 6 months is more than enough time if I don't break my hand again





It better be BIG! haha

what can those of us that will only be 20 do? I'm all for drinking but i don't wanna hinder everyone wanting to hit up the bars.


andddd you need to hurry up and set a date in stone so i can request my days off. would anyone be willing to split a room? gas is gonna kill me.
We won't be going to a lot of bars. We will drink at the hotel and such. I'll hook you up

You could come up Thursday. I'll put you up for the night, no problem. When it gets closer to time we can get everything set in concrete.

Gas is gonna kill me too. I am figuring about 8 tanks of gas. LOL

its not bad with the price of gas now... ~$200... but in June it may be close to $500 *cringes*



NVM ABOUT THE DATE the red was hard to read June 18-21 got it.


depending if I'm running 5.13s, 4.56s or 3.55s will be the major factor in how often we have to stop lol... I should be able to get 200 miles on a tank with the 3.55s and 4.56, but the 5.13s are gonna kill me, as well as being limited to about 70mph

I should have a job lined up and my apartment set up in March when I go to NC for spring break. So I should be 100% by about April.

Hey bro, room up with someone... its only 90 bucks for the weekend, and we would be honored to have a TJ in the mix... no worries. Just come and have a good time. I'm sure there will be a bunch of guys that will at least let you use a sleeping bag and lay on the floor in there room. If i have to make arrangements I will. The wife and I will sleep outside before one of my guests to this meet... Don't worry.

Im not 100% on coming , but if Im still employed im there . I can crash in somebodys room and reimburse them , just cant set anything in stone yet is my problem when its closer I can say for sure though . I just dont want to tell somebody I will half a room and have to back out .
Ben what route are you taking ?
Just checked , Dallas Guys what route are you taking ? I may be to far out of the way to meet but depending on route I can join half way in .

yea, it'll be a while before i know for sure.. but its 6 months away.. i'm sure I can stash a few pay checks away between now and then.. I think chuck may be splitting a room if he can make it, but your more than welcome to stay in there too..

dunno what the route is yet, looks like I'm gonna go up to dallas the day before and stay there so i don't have the extra 4 hours of driving that day.. and so i can't really be late and hold everyone up.

hey now... i am the KING of breakin' **** in parking lots.

I think a nice 'nature' shot would be a great touch on what's shaping up to be an epic trip..
