I've been bugging the shit out of the various New Yorkers including Qtip, Matt and Jason. Robert doesn't even have matching gears front to rear.

Dress in a nice suit and you'll likely get dismissed. No lawyer wants a highfalutin doctor or financial guy in the jury.

Well I officially have a lifted trailblazer with skids. Hopefully finishing the bumper tomorrow. Alignment Monday. Tires Wednesday. Let's get this show on the road.

Only took 7 years since I joined. Now James can stop asking me when I'm going to buy a trailblazer every time I see him. Lol

And I am out...

They rescheduled the class that I am teaching to 28 April - seems too many of the students were not going to be able to make it on the 21st when it was scheduled. To add insult to injury, I am on call the weekend of the trip.

Sorry folks - have fun!

Man, I've been gone awhile. When did you get a ram? Did you ditch the Jeep?

Yeah, got the Ram last year. The heep was giving me too much trouble, dropped over $3K into the TB to get it back on the trails, only thing left to do is get a open rear end and weld the gears.

Man, I gotta start packing!

I think I'm going to have to be late to the party though. Work has got me stretched too thin right now to take off that Friday. I will have to leave work around 3-5 in the afternoon, depending on work load, which will put me at meadow knob between 6-8 (9 at latest).

That sucks man. Whose going to line lead the first day? Rory should know the spots well. I could lead too, I have all the major points of interest pinned in my gps, and it'll even navigate to them.

Joey Rodick and his wife are saying that they are coming. I told him to message me/call me if they're running late or can't find us or whatever and they're still coming.

My girlfriend and I did the food shopping and packed most of the truck last night.
