First off, lemmie apologize for being a terrible organizer this year. IT's taken a decade, but I finally understand how and why everyone moves on from Explorers and four wheeling; my priorities and interests have totally changed. That said, Morgan isn't going to the Carlisle. His rockers are rotted out, rust is bubbling through his paint, stripes are cracked, front suspension still needs a total overhaul, rear bumper is splitting at the seams and those Claws look freaking ridiculous on such narrow rims. On the trail, he still owns it, but he'd be beyond embarrassing at such a high profile show. There are dozens of reasons why I won't have him fixed in time, but it all boils down to money and motivation. Or lack thereof, as it were. I'll be honest, just coming down to the show period is financial suicide... yet I feel beholden to everyone to make an appearance, so I'll be bringing Bullet down Friday night and hanging out Saturday as a walk-in only (and that's assuming that I have working brakes again- she's cost me $350 in the last few weeks and my brake pedal is still going to to the #$%@ floor. I'm too old for this crap).
I'm sorry. Before anyone gives me a load of crap, please realize that I'm literally watching one of my dearest dreams get crushed here. Since 2002, I wanted one of my trucks to be featured in the actual show. Figures, they're about 5 years too late and my trucks have slowly rusted to death.
I still have two rooms reserved at the Comfort Suites in downtown Carlisle for Friday night ONLY (they have 2 beds each). By my count, we have:
So do we really need a second room? I'm ok with crashing on the floor.
