    Just wanting to see if there will be any other rigs in the 35" tire range going to the CTB ride in Harlan August 11? I have been to Harlan a few times but always with way more built rigs than mine, so I am hoping at this ride I can do more wheeling and less spectating.

    Also, anyone else planning on staying at the Black Mountain Cabins?

    I hope the house will be finished by then, and I hope to have enough cash left over to make it over to Harlan for this ride. I really like that place!!! And it is a good rendevouz place for my Midwestern buddies to meet to ride! I know I haven't been riding in a while but the Jeep still has 36's, they are getting pretty worn down now. And the new garage has 8' doors... ;) ;) Just need to save some money back up For eventual new shoes and put the power plant in to turn em!!!

    Big Clay I run 35's on a fairly long wheel base. I've never been to Harlan and live in Mocksville. I also want to get more wheeling in with the CTB. When you thinking on heading up? I might just need to take off work! I'm down with camping and I'd be towing up. I don't tow like I'm in a race so I'd want to take enough time to drive like a normal person headed up. A few people headed out around the same time and route would be great. I don't know much on the cabins but my wife likes the sound of that over the tent, she's soft. Shoot me some info if you got any.

    I'm hoping to be done around that time with my build but I'll need a couple trips to the Flats to take care of the bugs so I'll know last minute. I'll also be on 42's. I forgot.

    Most likely it will Don but I'm hoping for the best. I've just started a complete remodel on one of my rental houses so that will put a dampner on time and money.

    I don't know anything about being a "tower", but with a fresh-built rig I won't be looking for any body damage. :)

    OK, my bad [as they say]; guess there is a difference between "tower", & "tow-er"! [As in Cummins, pulling GrannyII]:D
