How did you find out about this? I talked with Rob at Thiels Wheels yesterday and he told me they haven't received any updates and are still expecting them "by August 31st at the latest."

I also bought an enclosed trailer but for the past 6 months it has only been drug once and the rest of the time is a mobile garage

I wish I could join on the 6th- I replaced the pin in my SKS and need to test it but I'm driving back from D.C. the day before and will likely be spent. We'll see; let me know if you're definately shooting that day. That is, if I may invite myself along...

Well, don't look at a Dodge if you want to get over 14 mpg. The 2500 will haul a tank out of a pit and will do over 110mph (yes it will ) but it drinks gas like I drink mtn dew if that gives anyone a good reference. I think the next truck I get will be a 2500 with a Cummins turbo engine. Not super fast but for hauling big loads as I've learned, it's torque over Hp that get you there.

Now as for Byron, I'd look at a Dodge Caravan 3.3L or being a Honda Man an Odessy if you can deal with the stereotype. My caravan gets 23mpg and could certainly handle a 10ft enclosed trailer no problem. Plus it would double as a camper with the rear emptied.

If you do it on the 7th I will stop out in the morning between jobs; I can forsake sleep since I only have to stay up through Sunday night and then I will have two days off.

If on Saturday the 6th, I won't be in attendance; I will need to get some sleep that day between jobs.

If you do it Friday the 5th I think I should be available any time.

Did that make sense or was this a mic_d post?

How many cars do you own?

Caravan, Altima (Maxima?), Dodge truck... anything else?

Any of those days works for me, up to Shawn since he got the ball rolling I suppose.
