Not enough room. We had over 40 240's last year, guessing the same or more this year. lol

Wagon's tune is coming along, another day or so and it should be good.
140 should be running again in the next day or two, coming out nicely as well.

I won't be bringing my 140 this year. I hope that doesn't make your victory feel too hollow

I finally registered. I signed up for the spirited drive and BBQ, although I'm not entirely sure I'll make it to those. Depends on when I actually start the drive.

My 242 made it to California mostly unscathed. Just a few nonconsequential glitches. Staying in SoCal until Saturday. See you all soon.

Curious when I'll get an email on the BBQ address Saturday. Planning to attend that.

On the list to send out the addy Dave. I'll throw a reminder out that it needs to happen soon.

I was going to ping you for info on your route, had a potential small hauling load for gas money if you were interested but since you're in Cali already, it doesn't matter anyway.

My car is packed and I'm leaving Denver tomorrow morning early. I'm doing the lazy paced route with some sightseeing stops over the next 2 days.

Is there anything going on Friday night? I should be there early in the evening.

Aside from the M6 shens, not much in terms of 'formal' stuff. If you want, shoot me a text if you wanna swing by and grab a beer as well.

Wagon's got 3 guys tackling it as we speak.
140 fired right up last night, minor changeup on the fan setup then it'll be GTG as well.
Maybe I'll have time for a beer or two tomorrow afternoon....

Awesome, hopefully see him tomorrow!

Day one done. VERY disappointed in the drive today, traffic sucked on the ENTIRE fun portion of the drive, never even got to push the car really. Even so, got to roll 40 deep thru EDH, and for 8 miles or so we were 40 deep behind a dozen Harley's, had to be a sight for the oncoming traffic.

BBQ went well, already wrapping up.

I'm beat and burnt and will see ya'll tomorrow!
