    I had to laugh too 😂.


    Iím definitely up for making an event and hanging during Markís arrival in the Los Angeles area. We could zoom/FaceTime with the members local here that want to get together to brainstorm. So far Joe Kookykrispy, You Van-itti, Mark 108Vanguy, and I seem to be up for getting together. Richie66 and Monkeykongking are close by. I can reach out if they havenít been on here regularly.

    Letís do it.

    On this tour I havenít had any firm dates, only firm contacts. So far, everything is going very well. The parts are being picked up and delivered. Right now Iím in Indiana watching fireflies and sipping whiskey at Gasís place. I start heading toward Texas tomorrow. Letís set somehow in SoCal and make it firm. That would be awesome!

    Jose I got that text. Kooky's plan sounds fine to Mark.
    He is planning on Jacke's in San Diego area on Thursday 7-9
    My place on Friday 7-10 and we will be at Donuts and Derelicts on Saturday 7-11 bright and "Early".
    Then hes headed to Jose's at some time on Saturday but a BBQ during the day might be in the works...

    IF there are any changes to this plan we wont know for a few days.

    So as you see from Mark's post...Saturday didnt turn into a BBQ.
    The three of us did cook in the sun though. I appreciate all the help guys.
    Totally unexpected. I have HEI now... no more points.

    I thought after the show Id be heading home for a nap!
    Mark and Jose are the selfless sort of people that we all should strive to be.
    Jose drove me halfway across the county chasing parts.
    Mark did most of the wiring including the harness.

    They are going to Jose's place and probably work on his van.
    Im wiped out...

    Thank you both.

    Hey Jose, when we were at Mike's place, do you remember any cobbler? Oh Vanitti, I think we missed out. Next time.
