Seems Huck & I are the only ones still at home. Today will be quiet for us XT6'ers.

I'll be leaving tomorrow around 1pm-ish. That'll put me at the crossroads of time around 3pm-ish. I already packed my bags & found a room in Robbinsville. I can't afford Fontana Village. Besides, staying in Robbinsville is appropriate, being as my last name is Robbins.:headbang:

I can't wait to meet all the cool people.

Yep...I'm still home...

Jim called earlier, and is on his way down...plans to stop in KY for th enight, then meet up with our caravan in the morning to head on down...

 

So Mr. Robbins, maybe you should drive in through Fontana before you go to the Crossroads of time, as that's probably where the people that have arrived will be...

I had a great time meeting everyone. A great bunch of guys & gals.

Here's a few pics of Alcyones at Fontana Dam.

All my Pics are here: http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v205/crazyhorse001/

I hate I missed out on driving the loop with everyone, but the kids were getting REALLY restless. Maybe next year. I unfotunately watched a DuoSport rider go down as I went back up The Dragon on my way out. He was hurt, but still moving. I hope he's OK.

Again it was a pleasure meeting everyone, and I had fun watching Huck & Austin do some impromptu bodywork.

I got home about an hour ago, Melis just called safely from home.

 

The Newly-weds should be home in an hour or two....

 

 

Had a great time as always. My "Princess" with 2 hours and about 30 miles on a newly removed/replaced HG/returned engine did GREAT. A couple small issues with leaking gas and a bad coil on the way down.......

 

It was great seeing old friends, and meeting a few new faces.

 

Now to get the quotes started before they get forgotten...

 

There's an O-Ring there???

No wonder mine leaks?!?!?!

 

Thanks to all that helped make the meet possibal.

Glad everyone is getting home safe...and thanks Paul for posting some pics up...hopefully will get mine up today sometime....wish you could have made the loop with us too.

 

This was the fist time we had more SVX's than XT's there...but had (I think) 10 states represented.

Good to meet you to. Don't worry about adding an hour to the trip, we got to check out your Hatch :)

 

We did have an incident for the first hour or so after we left there, with the windows open it would suck the fumes up from the trunk and turning the SVX into a "huffing bag" :eek:. I was able to seal all of the openings with some duct-tape and we were able to make it the rest of the way without dieing :banana:

 

See you at one of the next meets....

I guess we didn't smell the fumes because of the side glasses being open. Sorry about that I thought I'd left it opened up longer enough to air out.

 

I really didn't expect the entuthiasm over my car that you guys had. I've been smiling all day about it:) Even if one of my patch jobs wasn't up to Connie's standards:-\

Don't worry about the fumes... usually you would have to pay a lot more for that kind of "high" :lol: Plus, it kept Melis from smoking for about an hour....

 

Come on man... It's a Hatch... and we're Soob nuts>

I may have a few suggestions for next year. When Austin gets XT6.net back up I'll post them up. Much of what I'll suggest will make the meet more "family friendly". It may also broaden it's appeal to more members.

I organized the 1st annual Pinto Car Club of America meet, and it was a smash hit among members. Being a "local" I can scout locations. I'd also be willing to make any/all reservations neccessary.

No fear...it only killed a few brain cells, but wow was I wacked:lol:

Got it buttoned up and no problems after that (I felt like I was driving a yacht for that first hour after that I think I slept)

 

Love the hatch!

We'd be happy to have any help in the planning stages Paul....and maybe you'll have an Alcyone of your own by then:)
