9 am at the staging area would be good :cool:
Is the staging area inside the park? Cauz some of us who's arriving with only one vehicle wont be able to get in the park w/ only one vehicle :(. But I'm there at 9!!!

EDIT: nevermind, I checked their map and I see that the staging area is a parking lot :D

Hahaha, that'll never happen because I refuse to give up wheeling, LOL ;) I'm not condemning you, Jeff: Just pointing out a fact of life. That's why they call me Captain Obvious :D Although I miss seeing you, Sue and Rachel on the trails....

Hey now, I told you I know someone who has a '93 XLT for $100, not my fault if you didn't want it :dunno:

Well, the Carlisle curse got me again.... My not-so-big carlisle surprise was that I was going to have Morgan painted to be Blackjack's opposite: grey with black stripes. What I got instead is pictured below :( I still want to put stripes on him, but I already have a black truck (granted, Morgan is now really dark charcoal grey, not black, but still). I can't put silver stripes on him because he'd look too close to Skunk. Rookie suggested I just stick with the originally planned black stripes and fender flares, but I'm thinking they'll barely show up against the new paint. That leaves platinum grey, the same as Blackjack's. Anybody else think it's gonna look goofy having two identically painted sports? :confused:

Edit: to give you an idea how close black would be to his new paint, look at his rims... they're still shiny black and they're only a shade darker than the paint

I would like to point out that the black/gray matches your shackles much better than green.

You shaddup :p: This may not have anything to do with Carlisle... maybe it's the curse of the pink shackles!

I like Morgan's new color, don't get me wrong- but the whole idea behind getting him painted was to have a polar opposite for Blackjack. Which isn't going to happen now :( Fooey. I've got the rest of the day to brainstorm, I'm sure I'll come up with some subtle way to make him look less like his shorter brother.
