Getting stuck in a huge puddle and having to get pulled out by a touring wagon and then having to pull the drain plugs to empty out the gallons of water would stink. I wish I had a winch, but I still have my trusty come-along......and somemore straps....

I think the thing to do this year is to have the strap already attatched and coiled up in the interior through an open window.Once stuck,just heave the strap off the port bow and hope a good strong sailor comes along.

Are you a good sailor? Maybe a tug boat captain. pulled my tug out of the pond. That's a good idea, should I hook one to the front and the back? I'll call one of my old army buddies and get my hatch ready to be sling loaded under a Blackhawk just in case your idea doesn't work.

i was wondering what that smell was - and if it had anything to with dumping the clutch at 5 grand.

it sucks that the RX wont make this trip, im kinda wishing i could bring it but by the time the meet rolls around itll have expired stickers on it and itll no longer be insured until i fix somethings...

but ill have the XT with me, the Xpert came by work today and saw it.

Looks like you need to put a "Maybe" next to my name. Great Northern Woods Club rally is that weekend and if our rally car is back together in time I'll have to be there. Won't really know until the week before.

I will however take this moment to let everyone know that there is a TSD rally held on a lot of the same roads driven for the meet, on Nov. 22nd. I WILL be there for that!

Rock On! :headbang:

Camping? How about this!
Directions to AC!
I'm going Gambling! Daddy needs to pay off his new toy! Seriously, I'd probably go to Atlantic city, play some poker, and then drive back home. BUT, that is only if I can make it.

But not everyone has radio's, If you coming with your's I'll make sure I get my CB back in my car. Some people might even have FSM radios, I have a couple so if anyone has those types we can all keep in touch. Good idea.....I guess I really need to have one so when I get STUCK I can call for Dave and Paul to come save the day......:rolleyes:
