I’m out for this one (no surprise). I moved last week, haven’t given the Jeep any attention for close to two months and a blown motor in the DD has hurt me. Fingers crossed for Harlan though!

Have fun out there guys.

2.385 more days of AT&T crap before Potts bound. I’m not counting though.

9 hrs and 14 mins for me of work, 5 tomorrow wont get here fast enough.

Unfortunately, it looks like we're going to have to sit this one out :(

Tow pig is still in the shop, I just got notice that I have job interview for promotion Friday afternoon (wish me luck!), & Joe has mandatory overtime on Saturday. Adulting is dumb
Wish you guys could make it but life happens. Good luck on the promotion and adulting sucks.

Did I read somewhere that there is water to swim in?
Yes, not very deep but nothing is better than good cold mountain water to get in.

For some reason I always load shit in the dark, getting the camper strapped down like a true redneck. Then hooking the trailer up. Hopefully all I'll have to do tomorrow is load the Jeep after work.

I’d say we are good on the generator situation but come on out.

Those straps rated high enough? A good gust of wind going up 77 may give those straps a good test.

For my camper they are. Mine only weighs right around 1000 lbs loaded. Plus strength by numbers, there 6 straps holding it in and my shake test couldn't move it.

Yeah when/if I get a larger one I'll need air bags and actually camper mounts (being a cheap ass right now because the torklift mounts are $$$$). Truck levels out fully loaded as is now.

I don’t think I’m going to be able to make it, as hurting pretty good and leg hurts and that’s a lot of driving and shifting gears and don’t know if can drive that far, and need to work to make some money as have few things come up need to take care of. Just tired and wanna relax

You will definitely be missed but understand the situation. Hopefully you get some rest and relief from the pain.

Guess I need to cancel the birthday strippers.
