Texas Slabs run Aug. 15th

I have my F-150 in the shop right now getting alignment done. I will then be putting new shocks on it tomorrow. Then I should be alot better towing than I was during the Gilmer run.
Also installing my new hubs on the trail explorer being that I blew my Manual Warns at Gilmer.

Other than that, I think I am ready to roll.

If any of you Texas guys need some Explorer Glass, let me know and I can bring it with me. I took all the glass out of the truck so it is for sale.

Brad, I think everyone is leaving on Saturday night. I think we will be the only ones still there. So we may need to look into cheap hotel or something.

I don't mind camping at all, the only thing is that you would have to convince SVT Girl to camp too, but I have no qualms at all about camping!

You all need to gang up on SVT Girl and see what she says! ;)
 






shot man.. wish i could go....darn it.
 






Well, Whatever eveyone decides on. We will probably find a cheap motel to crash in (round rock area) That way I can just chill after a day of wheeling to relax.

But if she decides to camp let us know.
 






Kris, Mike, Randall, I'll have to play it by ear. If y'all want I can give one of you a call Friday night.

:p
I really don't mind camping I just thought this was going to be a one day trip.......oh well whatever yall want to do is cool with me! :)
 






I may be able to get a friend to come-with for the drive there, so then for sure will come. Like I said above, I'll just need a ferry back to town Saturday evening. (and two seatbelts)

Also I'm retrofitting Splat's old CB setup to run off the sig lighter and with a mag mount antenna so I can throw it in the VW and chat on the hwy.
 






Just so you know I doubt this is going to happen for me. Since my Explorer does not even have a transmission in it.
 






Just custom weld up a small driveshaft from the flywheel to tcase :D It would be like driving in third ;)

Calling me won't do any good. I'm out. I am shifting my transmission right now with two lengths of allthread run through the floorboard. It's a ***** finding the right gear.
 






Oh Randall,

You can ride with someone. You need to come out and see the Slabs one last time. Come awwnnnnn.
 






Now I really think I am out for good while. I dropped my Transmission on my ankle. If it does not stop hurting I am going to emergency room...

Make Alec be your "Shift Man", have him jump out and shift the transmission while you hold the brakes, that'll teach him for buying a Hilter Hummer! :p

There's actually a motel there in Kingsland about 3-4 miles from the Slab's if that helps.

Got a name or number for it? Or know how much a room would cost?
 






Well I fractured it. I have to see a specialist tomorrow. Me and my Dad were loading it in the Back of my navajo I tripped and fell the tranny fell with me.
 






I'm sorry Kris. I know the top leg orthopedist in Houston if you need a referral, I could also assist if you need surgery :D Real sorry to hear that. A friend of mine in college lost half a finger to a falling tranny.

Well, not going due to a whole bunch of things...
