John may poke himself but none of us have poked him yet. That I know of...

I was just asked tonight to work all weekend. This would make John's very difficult for me. If work doesn't promise me full days for the weekend then I won't work except Friday night.
IF I leave after work Friday night I would be at John's around 3 am or noon on Saturday. I'll need to leave John's Sunday around noon to go check out a Jeep and leave a deposit on it.
If I end up working all weekend then John's would be canceled for me but I will be able to do the swap meet Sat till 3pm. I'll take off work Monday to go see the Jeep.
Lots of IF's on my end but hopefully I will have solid plans by Late Thursday night.Tonight....
Hopefully we know whether we are camping or swapping by Thursday night as well.
Work will most likely win for this weekend. They are desperate to get these new design machines together and fired up. Nothing like selling 8 machine lines of something you never even had designed yet. With the Holiday next week we will only be working normal hours 4 days so they are piling all the resources into this weekend. Heavy overtime starts the Monday after Easter. but Sundays most likely won't be used unless something goes drastically wrong. So weekend get togethers can happen just about any weekend. The sooner the better though, I'm over due for a food coma again.

Bryan I'll most likely see you if nothing more than for breakfast as you pass through. You'll need a break from the road by Cincy. My treat. Bob Evans, Frisches or whatever.

I'll let you guys know what's up on my end for sure by Friday early morning, 4 am, as soon as I get off work and get home. If I can get online at work I'll let you know a by at least midnight Thursday.

Mmmm Breakfast!!
I am planning to get up at 5ish pull out of Fort Wayne, IN at 6AM
Hope to be in Cinci around 9ish

I'll be driving my daily beater, white '06 KIA Rio.
It was a freebee given to me by my Uncle
It's not Mercedes or a Full Size Jeep...but does get really good gas mileage.

HEY!

Howdy guys! Sorry I've been swamped this week., but I'm clear this weekend. I may need to borrow Kim (retro) for a few hours tomorrow to wrap up the last couple of water line breaks (need someone to turn off and on while I'm under the house) but other than that all good.

I thought I would have a definite answer by now. All I can say is I might be leaving town Friday noon time or Sat 1am.

The swap meet is off for me for sure.
John's will not be doable either. Although if you guys do get together call me I may be stopping by for a short talk and some major sleep. then back to work for dayshift hours sat and sun.
I don't know what work will tell me when I call them at noon to take off for the night but intend to work sat and sun still. They may just tell me to take the whole weekend off if it pisses them off enough.
I need the money but I need this new Jeep worse and may have to go lay claim to it ASAP. I didn't like the tone of his last email in regards to another interested party. I don't want it to get away.

I will try and post back here around noonish.

So, if Tom is unable to make it and not many others have spoken up for either the Swap Meet or a Meet & Greet at John's place...

...so wondering if I should change my plans and bypass the Cinci/northern KY area this time and wait for a better time?

I forgot Cincy is not on your flight path. Sorry.

We tend to plan on a meet forever and just when you think all interest has faded ,all of a sudden we get together over night.

I just got off the phone with the boss and the Jeep guy. I'm on the road again ..

You guys call me if you get together tonight I may be able to get there around 1 am. I'm supposed to be at work at noon Sat.
Sorry if I confused anyone or everyone... Thanks for playing.. Please remain seated until the ride has come to a full stop.

16 hours on the road , $200 in fuel and a worn out dog and we are back home at the crack of dawn.
I now own another Jeep J20.... 99% California rust free- - One of the cleanest trucks I have ever seen. I'll head back down in a few weeks to bring it home. Factory Cab and chassis truck.

I have everything to make another one of these for sale right now Ever since my 81 J20 sucker punched my F350 I have hated it. Soon I will no longer have it as this truck is its replacement. There are a couple of things I will do to it but hopefully neither of them will be time consuming.
I'm hoping to get back to my 77 J10 now.. That is going to be the fun toy.

It is still sitting down in the Smokey Mountains. I just went and laid some cash down on it till the title comes back. That gives me a chance to do some prep work here. I have no where to put it right now and with not being able to get a tag and insurance Zoning will not allow it outside.

I need to have aMeet -N-Greet, WOT and Sale A Thon.. <<< all of these are highly likely in the coming weeks.

Did you guys have a camp out?

So what is the plan now? I should be open for any weekend except Mothers Day weekend. I'll either be in Riga, MI or Daytona,FL or both.

Do you need help with the pipes? I can come down just for that if you want.

John you still want that roll around tool box? If not that's OK but I would like it gone. If you want it I will hold it, it's not in the way.

I have a nice Corelle bowl that needs returned. I'm not sure why we packed it full of goodies to begin with. The pork brisket was delicious, I just don't know why we didn't wrap it in foil to send it home with me.
