Hopefully, we'll be towing with this "little" beauty to the rally. As you can see, it's Texas-sized.

Not much about a truck turned my head until I starting towing a vintage Airstream (unless it was the good-looking man behind the wheel ). Now, that one is SUwEEET!

hello,

Terry and I were just discussing his rally, and by george I think we will be there, if it's okay with the group. I need a great break and can think of no better way to spend it.

Okay,

We are in #45, and will be leaving here on that Thursday and arriving on Friday morning. We plan to poke along and enjoy the trip.

I just cannot wait to see sugarfoot and the rest of the gang.

What can we bring for pot luck?

Marie

We have reservations...

But we'll stay there anyway...
Looks like we're next door to Tom and crew. Do we have to wear hats with round ears on 'em?

Arizona. We brought it home last week. It's all stock and a real beast. 164" wheelbase . Dana 44 Front/Dana 60 rear. 3.73 gearing. NP205 Transfer Case. 392 ci engine. TF727 Transmission. The hitch receiver sits at 18" unloaded.

I've got long-term plans (5+ years) for this truck. Hydroboost conversion on the brake system. Convert the transmission to a 4- or 5-speed manual. It's big enough for a 2-speed rear, so I might get really ambitious. Also, potentially a powerplant swap over to a diesel engine to run biodiesel. Oh.. and fix the rust.

I just hope I don't get Aluminitis as bad as I've got Internationalitis. I might end up hungry all the time.

Internationals of the period were known as "biodegradable trucks" because they rusted away while driving down the road. But I'm sure you already know that. Maybe you can get a Gear Vendors or US Gear overdrive for the truck.

WooHOO! Terry and Marie are coming! It will be so great to see you two again, and meet the royal princess herself, Sophie.

Hello down there in Pasco County! I grew up in San Antonio (Florida for those of you who are wondering) so I know about Wesley Chapel and its environs. How long have you lived there? Tell me all about the local happenings. Are you going to the Rattlesnake Festival?

Danielle and I have not reserved our spot for this rally yet - still on the fence about whether we can pull it off that weekend. However, with Empresley's suggestion for Sweetwater Road Trip and the temptation of barbecue how can we resist.

Funny you should ask... I had enough of rattlesnake festivals and hunts when I was growing up in the wilderness of Northern Pennsylvania. The Morris Rattlesnake hunt was an annual event. I found a snake in my office one morning a couple of months ago, and when I showed it to the service manager, he ran out the door, screaming like a girl.... My hero... Maybe because I was holding it up for him to see, do you think?
As for local happenings, the area is growing pretty fast, and some things should be growing faster than they have, such as roads. They are building a new mall/shopping center near the Interstate, where SR54 curves back West from South from Wesley Chapel. There is also a new very large shopping center just North of SR54 along the West side of I-75. In one 1/2 mile section of SR54, there is a new Ford dealer, Kia dealer, Nissan dealer, Toyota dealer, Honda dealer, Hyundai dealer, Honda motorcycle dealer, and Mazda dealer. All have been built since 2005.

The monastery is still on SR52, as well as Marathon Coach (the people that build the 4 million dollar Prevost bus RV conversions). Stuckey's has followed the tradition of virtually all the other ones in the country, and has closed and been torn down. There is a new, huge high school being built on Old Pasco Road, I can hardly wait for the traffic jams from that. Dade City is getting some urban renewal, the citrus plant is being rehabbed for other uses. Zephyrhills is going through growing pains like everywhere else around here, and our local economy has been hit pretty hard by the housing crash. If there's anything in particular you want to know about, let me know, and I can fill you in.

Summer Thong Thang

Jeez, I was thrilled when a second AS signed up to join us at (what I can't avoid is) the Summer Thong Thang. Now, it appears this event has resonated with more than a few of you. Can I suggest professional counseling for you all?

None the less, despite your own picadillos, and against legal counsel, this is shaping up to be quite a fun event. We might actually want to reserve the pavillion - just so we don't annoy the fish.

Please send large envelopes of non-sequential, unmarked, small bills to my immediate attention and I will reserve the space. Since we will not have a lot of raffle items for this event, please bring your trade-able and custom designed thongs - you know, "I wrestled with Martin at the 2008 Thong Thang" collectibles. Use your imagination - like I need to give this group coaching on this subject.

Brad,

Terry and I will chip in towards the rental of the pavillion. Also, we have a secret source of all things flamingo, so we will bring a surprise for the raffle. Put us down for pasta salad, mudslides and a desert.

Can't wait, can't wait, can't wait!

Marie

Welcome to the 'hood! Mouse ears are optional!

Brad, put us down for a donation on the pavilion also. Looking forward to some of Martin's 'Que. We'll bring a desert. Probably of the Key Lime persuasion.
