As much as we hate to do it, we are going to have to cancel on our trip to the Hot Springs FOD Rally in June. We really hate to do this, but the reality of it is that it would be too expensive of a trip for us to make just for the gas since it's 1200+ miles one way for us to just get there...not to mention other expenses.... If we lived reasonably close, we'd be there for sure.

Again, we're sorry, but we are sure the rest of you will have a grand time of it. We will sure miss meeting everyone.

Bummed in Tucson,
Terry & Greg
Awh, we're really bummed! We were looking forward to meeting you guys, and dreaming of new seat covers for the CCD! But we totally understand the pain at the pump. Gas is on the upper end of $4 here in Chicago, and passing $5 at some stations. Plus we have to run premium in the Lincoln to tow, so doing the math, hell you almost need to take out a loan to travel nowadays! We'll miss you, but we'll see you guys down the road!

Thanks everyone, for lamenting the fact that we will not be attending the FOD rally this June... Aside from being bummed by not being able to make the actual trip to new places, we are doubly sorry that we will not be meeting you all. We know it's going to be a wonderful, fun time ... and we hate to miss out on that. Woe is we...but we'll be there is spirit...

Uh oh... Us too, I'm afraid!

That ugly devil known as WORK is rearing his pointy little head... Jason is now working on a big project that delivers on June 11, so we're not going to be able to leave town. We were really looking forward to meeting you all! Stupid work, ruins everything!!

But, we'll be there in spirit. Please make sure someone takes lots of pictures so we can see what we missed!

Have a great time, you guys.

Andy
