    Been a little quiet on the swag front.
    Hope you clowns are working hard to gather things up.
    I'd like to see everyone be a winner.

    Jim Kohl (Jim Kohl Photography) stepped up and donated 2 large prints of this year's midnight photo. Thanks big time Jim.
    He will also provide details (in Dawson) on how you can purchase said photo to add to your collection.

    I received confirmation that Harold Cecil from Giant Loop LLC has shipped us one of his Giant Loop luggage bags. Too cool! Big ticket item for sure.

    Keep it coming kids.

    Where did ya steal the Bird?
    I got an old auto trans out of one of them things layin' in the yard. Come get it.

    I had a ‘55 Bird with a stick shift once, but I <STRIKE>flipped</STRIKE>, er, sold it before I knew I was gonna get as deep as I did into the old car & street rod thing. Just another one I should have kept, but it was pretty rusty underneath. Needed new floor boards & I didn’t have the skills, tools or the $$$$ at the time to fix it right.
    Almost got a real nice ‘55 a couple years later, in 1975. 289, 4 speed, mags, new red paint, sat just right. Just what I wanted. $5500.
    But had my sights set on a roadster like my ‘31/’32 & figured my Ex would have a cow if I tried to get both. Was already payin’ on a new house too.
    I didn’t want a cow around. :uhoh


    Busted! :lol3 But I’ll be up long before MM again tomorrow.
    MM, get my PM? :D

    This is additional information/clarification re: a special offer from Steve at EnduroStar Products.
    Steve has donated one trail stand for swag and he is offering free shipping and D2D Dawson delivery to anyone interested in purchasing one for themselves.
    Simple deal. You get on line and order yours (and pay for it with CC) and he ships it to Anchortown. I/we deliver to you at D2D and you pack it home.
    Sweet deal on a neat product. Make sure to tell the folks that you want the "free shipping to D2D special"
    $27.50 delivered

    Make sure to read this post first. I missed it, read the wrong post somehow, ordered one anyway. My order won't/shouldn't apply to the 7 order limit.

    I will be riding to Chicken this coming Friday for Chicken Stock and will report upon my return to dodge. So far this spring all the reports have been that the TOW is in awesome shape, even the motorhome types are smiling.
    Although I realize not necessary I must remind everyone of how much of a friend Susan has been in Downtown Chicken and deserves our support!

    All praise the weather gods and we can soon start to count the sleeps!
