I just wanted to add that I had a great weekend!  I am so glad you guys decided to brave the weather and come out.
Honestly, this trip is one of the biggest things I look forward to each year.

And I'm sorry I was not feeling too well on Sunday morning.  I think I need to not use a 30oz tumbler to drink keg beer.  Maybe work on moderation. LOL

Thanks for bringing Eddie along, for the killer breakfast tacos and for the glorious hay!  Best of luck on your promotion, too. I’m sure you’ll do a great job.

Another GREAT event guys, so glad we all ignored the forecast and went regardless. We had some good laughs and a good ride up to the rock.  The band on Sat afternoon was really good too.

We really should do a camp/ride event twice a year, I'd be willing to host the camp portion at my local campground [there are showers!].  Maybe April?

Here are some photos....

The Funrun, this guy was ready for low water crossings!





The new saloon and the band on Sat...








Chris' excellent firepit...

Glad y’all stayed dry.  I was keeping an eye on the weather.

Next year I’m sending out a memo to all family members letting them know that if they get sick the weekend of the Classic they will be on their own.

Hey Guys...for you guys who was razzin' me about the tailgate on my Tacoma, want you to know it has been repaired.

After a little research on the Tacoma forum, the weak tailgate is a very common problem for the 2nd generation Tacos. 

So, first I installed some 3/4" steel angle to strengthen it internally....



Then I ordered and installed a new powdercoated steel tailgate cap [$115] to replace the flimsy plastic stock one. A member on the Tacoma forum developed and manufactures them and sells 'em on ebay. It's a stout piece and uses original hardware to install...



And since you didnt like my rotting old school wood ramp, I bought an alum one...



Will be trying this out when I go to the races at COTA in a couple weeks, plan to bring one of my "pit bikes", my brother is racing there...

Steve - the tailgate fix looks perfect and the ramp looks a little high cotton compared to the toothpick you were using. 

I’m game for a weekend in April.  I can do any weekend except the weekend starting Friday the 12th. The month of May is pretty much shot as far as schedule goes.  Showers sound nice.

I ran into Joe this weekend at World Market.  Something about Vegemite...

Hey Jeff...   MotoGP is April 12-14th so wouldnt want to do it that weekend anyway. And might be hard for the guys going to the races to head out of town two weekends in a row, we've had that issue before.

Maybe Apr 26-28?

That’ll work for me.  How about the eye of the gang?

Anybody still want to go camping? Month of April is loaded for us. Would March 22-24 work for anybody else?

Not for me.   Just got back from Barbados and have family visiting town this weekend.

I’ve got several things I have to be at that weekend...

Got the bottom end of the 550 back together!   It’s on hold now while I get the GL650 ready to sell.
