    Hopefully the weather will be better this year. Wife did not want me to have the little one out in the rain all day. I got it on the calendar. Looking forward to seeing the travelers (Got Grass, Mick and Alan) to name a few.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. :salute:

    I'd been afraid it wasn't going to happen this year. :(

    The wife combines this trip and our yearly mini-vacation. She's been after me for two months wanting to know when it was so she can call and make reservations. payup

    See you all in Poughkeepsie :waving: .

    Looking forward to it. Each October we have a clam bake, last year our clam bake and the BBQ fell on the same date. Lucky for me this year we chose the 11th, looks like I might be able to make it this year.

    John, You better be there with "The truck" & plan on showing it off a little bit...
    I'm getting really sick of telling all the UB Rice mobiles that a Ram 2500 can easily beat any of their pos's. They just don't believe me about the 11's... I'll be there with my digi cam & camcorder.... lol

    LMAO, if I do a little 4 wheel burnout there,it will look like a solar eclipse until the nitrous hits,LOL.:D . Locally no one will even race my truck anymore.I have destroyed so many quick cars that they all pass now.When a 7000+ lb truck smokes a 1/2 dozen of the areas fastest cars ,word gets around quick. Its funny how storys get exagerated and escalate. I have heard rumors about my own truck(from guys who didnt know me yet),they told me to watch out for this sick blue Ram diesel with a plow frame,and a car seat in the back,LOL.:drinkup: I almost had a new Ford lightning take the bait the other day.The look of disbelief is priceless, you literally blow there minds after you walk them. The funny thing is my truck can be a lot quicker,its really not even that radical,I still use it as a daily driver,tow truck,and plow truck.

    John, I was telling a young guy at work today about your truck. He wasn't believing it, so we came on PS so he could see it and read the posts.

    He was pretty proud of his Japanese whatever (keyword "was").

    See you in Poughkeepsie.

    George, that motel is in the process of adding an additional wing. I'm not sure of the completion date, but you might have brand new rooms available to you.
